    Hi Pinsiders,

    I've been asked by a few people if we'll be turning the 2015 Pinball at the Zoo T-shirt design (https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/2015-pinball-at-the-zoo-t-shirt-pre-order) into a poster, as we did last year (https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/2014-pinball-at-the-zoo-poster).

    I really hope so!

    In case you haven't seen it, here's the 2015 Pinball at the Zoo event artwork:

    2015PatZ-183.jpg

    Here's what we're prepared to offer. This poster will be big, archival, high-quality, and gorgeous...just like last year's limited-edition print. This 5-color silk-screened poster will be limited to 100 total copies. It'll be printed on high-quality 100# French paper, suitable for framing, and will be 18"x20" when complete. I am prepared to personally sign and number this limited-edition run, NEVER TO BE PRINTED AGAIN. Price is $25 (+$15 shipping in the United States or +$25 shipping outside the United States). There's also an option to purchase the poster without shipping if you'll be attending Pinball at the Zoo and would like to pick it up at the show. Here's what it will look like:

    2015PatZPosterMock-31.jpg

    Before we go to press with these, we'll need 30 pre-orders before it makes sense for us to print. I've created a page on my website with a purchase button where you can pre-order (first come first serve on specific numbers, but please make a note of your desired number in the "instructions to seller" box when ordering):

    http://www.elephanteater.com/10641

    We're going to leave the pre-order window open for a month. If we have 30 pre-orders by February 28th, 2015, then we'll go ahead and print. If we don't receive the required number of pre-orders, I'll refund everyone's pre-order money.

    I'd really like to see these printed. I think they'll look great next to last year's print (https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/2014-pinball-at-the-zoo-poster). Let's make this happen!

    Sincerely,

    Ok, I will send payment today. Can we get shipping tubes this year at The Zoo? I picked mine up last year and it was tough getting it home without crushing it.

    #5 4 years ago

    Payment sent ! Number doesn't matter !

    Come on guys & gals, place your order quick !

    Anyone in Columbus going to PatZ? Id love to buy one, but don't wanna pay $15 shipping on a $25 item. If so, pm me. Thanks!

    Quoted from catboxer:

    Hm. Not a bad suggestion. I just added an option to the PayPal button that allows you to select no shipping +tube for $5 more ($30 total). I'll also wrap the poster in kraft paper (just like I do when shipping) so the poster doesn't get damaged if the tube gets jostled around. Hope this helps, and thanks for the feedback, catboxer.

    Quoted from kosmo:

    Payment sent ! Number doesn't matter !

    Come on guys & gals, place your order quick !

    No number request and calls to action. Dream customer! Thanks, Cosmo!

    Quoted from yancy:

    In like Kevin Flynn.

    Always nice to have repeat customers. Thanks for comin' back for more, Yancy! ...if this pre-order goes well, brace yourself for another auction.

    It's worth it.

    "Always nice to have repeat customers. Thanks for comin' back for more, Yancy! ...if this pre-order goes well, brace yourself for another auction."

    This should make for another interesting auction again this year...LOL.

    UPDATE #1 (01.27.15 - Evening):

    Just a heads-up, I started a running tally of our "ALL-STARS" (our pre-orderers...without 30 of you, there will be no poster), which you can find at the bottom of the first post on this thread. I'll keep this running list updated for easy reference, for those interested in how we're doing on numbers.

    Speaking of numbers, I also started a list of claimed limited-edition #'s, in case you're wondering if a particular digit is available or not. Here's what the update looks like, but feel free to just take a peek at the first post at anytime. I'll keep it updated as frequently as possible.

    Got your payment, Tsskinne, and I've reserved #19 for ya. Also...you've been added to the ALL-STAR list! (See above)

    Awesome!

    #22 4 years ago

    UPDATE (01.28.15):

    Just a quick bump. Wanted to let everyone know, we received a few more orders overnight and we're now up to 8 of the 30 orders needed to make this print-run. Roughly 25% in one day. Not too shabby!

    The list of ALL-STARS has been updated in the initial post, as have the reserved numbers.

    #23 4 years ago

    Has anyone posted this on KLOV? If not, do you mind if I do?

    #24 4 years ago

    Raaaargh! The preorder model is dead! jpop! skitb!

    Wait, I mean, awesome looking design once again Ryan. Whose idea was it to go with essentially the same layout as the Robots from last year but just change the style?

    #25 4 years ago
    Quoted from Insane:

    Has anyone posted this on KLOV? If not, do you mind if I do?

    THAAAT would be incredible. Thanks, Insane. I've tried a number of times to get a log-in on KLOV, but I was never able to get a response. I've even had ppl with existing log-ins write in a character reference for me, so I'm not sure how to break through the KLOV barrier. Ha-ha! ...but, yah, if you don't mind, I'm happy to have you copy and paste this info elsewhere. Muchas gracias!

    Quoted from epthegeek:

    You're so right. THREAD-LOCK!!!

    Quoted from epthegeek:

    Thanks, Eric! Much appreciated.

    Quoted from epthegeek:

    Whose idea was it to go with essentially the same layout as the Robots from last year but just change the style?

    Kevin (PatZ Overlord) basically gives me complete creative control on the Pinball at the Zoo designs (both the robots and the vikings...so far). So, like it or hate it, that's me. I made the choice to keep the underlying structure the same so that when people saw it, they would know immediately that it was a piece of P.a.t.Z. promotional artwork. It was my attempt to add a bit of consistency to the illustrated branding of the show. At least, that was my thought process behind it.

    Does it run the risk of being repetitive? Sure. But it was a calculated risk I was willing to take. My final thought was that with the complete change in color scheme, character design, machine design, and signage, it was different enough to be interesting, yet similar enough to establish some consistent branding. My hope is that the similar structure will become more apparent when the 2016 artwork is released and you have three of them sitting next to one another side-by-side. I feel like that will be the point where they can really be seen as a cohesive whole. ...but way to spot the pattern!

    Order placed. Thanks Ryan!

    Got it, and sent you a confirmation email. Thank YOU for the pre-order, Chris!

    That makes 9. (ALL-STAR list updated)

    Hi Ryan, just sent payment hopefully for print #14 if still available.

    Awesome artwork btw

    Quoted from fiberdude120:

    #14 is YOURS, Fiberdude! Thanks for the pre-order.

    10/30, now! 1/3 of the way to our goal!

    Quoted from tomdotcom:

    What is verily?

    Ha-ha! Verily is an antiquated affirmative exclamation. It's like an old-timey way of saying, "Aw yeah!" I believe, "truly," is the actual definition. You hear it a lot in period pieces with knights or vikings and the like. ...if you're into that sort of thing.

    Quoted from tomdotcom:

    Awesome artwork btw

    Verily, I thank thee.

    #31 4 years ago

    A stealth pinsider swooped-in to contribute another pre-order. That makes 11.

    Verily,

    Ryan, i just posted on KLOV. i know you can sign up and pay the $2.00 fee and get immediate access. Or you can sign up and have someone vouch for you. My name is the same there and i would.

    Thanks for posting this on KLOV, and for the offer of a recommendation. I'd be happy to pay the $2 to get onto that site, but...man, I just couldn't get a response from anyone. It didn't make me feel very confident about sending money to anyone there. I'll send you a PM here in a sec.

    In the meantime, I think your KLOV post may have worked. Got another order! That's a dozen!

    Thanks, Insane.

    Summation: 14/30 pre-orders. Edging ever closer to that half-way point in just under a week. Not too shabby! (ALL-STAR list updated)

    #47 4 years ago

    We've got about 4 more days until this pre-order comes to an end. I'm hoping we can bring in a few more orders by then to ensure this print will be made. I wouldn't mind if you all spread the word a little bit to help get this pre-order moving again. Ha-ha! Just sayin'.

    Take care, guys!
