The print thread.

General discussion, shows, and everything else.

Or I'm just doing a shitty job at searching for it.

Mondo is putting this Goonies print out tomorrow. I'd try and snag one but don't get paid until friday. :smt012

Really wish I would've found someone to go the showing with me. That new theater is 3 hours from where I live so it'd be doable, but gas would have been a bitch. The new print is very good! Also I picked up the H.G. Wells set by Tong yesterday. Excited to get those in and frame them.

Can you guys post some links? I'm a noob at these and really want to grab a couple to redecorate a room at my place. I'd be looking for mostly horror from the 70s-80s. Thanks a lot.

expressobeans is a good site where you can search for stuff by title/arist.

I'd also recommend Etsy...lots of unknown artists make small runs of stuff and their prices are usually very reasonable.

What do I do with a Certificate of authenticity? Frame it with the print, or keep it separate?

After the print is framed, put it in an envelope and tape it to the back of the frame job.

Thank you!
My mum has a D'Arcy Doyle print with the COA stuck to the back of it, not in an envelope, so its stuck to the back of the frame for good. (She bought it that way). I didn't think it seemed like a smart thing to do.

I wish I had a better picture, but I picked up this Thomas Hooper print at a show he was doing here not too long ago. free food and beer, and they did the printing in front of us. It was pretty cool.

I need to get it framed soon

Thank some guy on EB for the heads up! I wish mine had been as cheap, but I didn't pay too much more. Picked up an extra set of pages too. They are great if you don't have the room for a flat file. Posters that are 24x36 might be a bit tight, but I only have one of that size. All the rest fit and store nicely.

Definitely, you keeping up with showings? Hit me up when you see something good, school's starting back up so I'm not going to be following stuff as closely.

Beautiful Hooper print!

I really wish the colors came out in the picture, the matte is a really sandy beige color, and the frame is a really dark copper. The lady who framed it did a great job.

Framing my prints cost me a ton of money, but I'm glad I found a shop that did a good job.

I fucked up and went to Michaels, enticed by their non-stop 50% off sale, and I got this Jordan Crane print (one of my favorites) framed and they did a terrible job:

It's seriously embarrassing how poorly framed this print is (so much so that I left it at home in Florida), and how awful their matte selection was...

what is this print? I'm really digging it.

Don't Hang Up by Jordan Crane.

I didn't think he's really selling prints anymore (he wasn't through his personal website for several years)...I think he quit selling prints in 2007 or 2008, which is a bummer given how unpopular prints were then, and how popular prints are now. I actually got a little curious myself and did a little googling...I found a good deal of newer stuff by him here (meaning this will be an expensive week!): http://whatthingsdo.com/store/.

I really like his style and he's a super nice guy to deal with, he always sent me little doodles or post cards with his prints saying thanks for the order. You can occassionally find his older prints on eBay/expressobeans.

He had a cool set of 5 prints back in 2005, where everyone was dying in different ways, by fire, ice, earthquake, wind, etc.

p.s. for all the zombie dorks too lazy to click and check out his stuff, you might like this:

fuck, could easily drop 120 on his site right now, love his style.


Me too, he usually illustrates comics and I think that's why I like his style so much. He's released a few short stories that are really interesting/depressing, good coffee table books.

The stuff on here must have just gone up in the last two or three months, because just a couple of months ago I was checking his site (http://www.reddingk.com) to see if he had printed anything new, and now it redirects to that site. I'll probably drop a couple of hundred dollars when I get home...really excited to see he's still doing prints.

A friend of mine bought his book of postcards, which is a collection of his prints, and he put three or four of them in small frames and hung them all next to each other, it was a really cheap project and it turned out great. The postcard book is on eBay regularly for cheap.

I find it strange that he's completely flown under the radar of the print community, because I think his stuff is more interesting than what most of the print "artists" are doing these days, and their shit is selling like hotcakes.
