    Okay, so it's coming down the home stretch of the pre-order time and we're not exactly where we need to be. However, I really want to see these things produced, so here's what I'm prepared to do. If there's not too much push-back, I'll go ahead and print them.

    My original goal was to make it to a break-even point through pre-orders for printing 100 posters. We are slightly more than half-way there. Perhaps 100 was too ambitious, but since we made our pre-order numbers in under a week last year, I thought I'd expand the LE quantity from 50 to 100. I'm finding out that Vikings aren't as hipster-chic as robots. Ha-ha!

    So, I'm willing to foot the bill for the remaining unsold pre-orders. Because I exhibit my work at comic conventions throughout the year, I'm pretty confident I can move these posters given a little time and a few shows. However, I'd like to pull back the LE quantity from 100 to 50. I'm not prepared to pay for the unsold posters up to that amount, and no one (except for me) has reserved a number greater than 50, so we shouldn't upset anyone by taking away their desired number.

    So, if I could get some feedback from the pre-order folks that you're alright with me moving ahead with printing a more limited run of your posters, I'll go ahead and do that. If there is some unforeseen push-back, we'll deal with it at that point, but I'm having a hard time imagining why any of the pre-order folks WOULDN'T want to see this move forward with a more limited numbering than proposed.

    Finally, the order button is still live, so if anyone would still like to jump on the band wagon, I wouldn't mind. Here's the link:

    Hello Poster Pre-Orderers (and potential pre-orderers),

    I finished a few rounds of halftone mock-ups with my printer today and just gave them the stamp of approval. These posters should be hitting the press soon-ish! In the meantime, I wanted to share some of the mocks with you all:

    I'll be sure to keep this thread updated with any additional info as it comes my way. Just wanted to say thanks to those who have sent their hard-earned cash my direction. ...and for anyone interested in picking up a poster, they are still available for purchase here:

    Thanks, again, and have a good one, guys!

    Hi Guys,

    Just wanted to give you a quick update. My printer notified me that the posters have been printed and are ready for pick-up. I'll likely grab 'em sometime this week (trying to find some time). Once I do I'll post some pics here and start packaging them for shipping.

    Thanks for your support and I can't wait to get these to you!

    By the way, I am COMPLETELY JOKING!!! ...just wanted to give boostedskex a minor heart-attack.

    All joking aside, I logged-in to report that I shipped all mail-order posters today. Woo-hoo! Post Office tells me U.S. orders should arrive by Saturday and they have no clue when international orders will arrive, but 2 weeks was their reasonable guess. The rest of the orders will be available for pick-up at Pinball at the Zoo next month. I'll only be there on Saturday with my family (wife and 1.5-yr-old son, please stop us and say hello), but I'm currently figuring out a way to get them to the show before that time. As usual, I'll update here with more info.

    In the meantime, thanks so much for your support of this project. As I was addressing all these tubes, it was pretty gratifying to see all the different states (6) and countries (3) where my art would eventually settle. You guys rock. Thanks for making this print possible through your pre-orders.

    Great news, guys! Those arrived even faster than expected. Thanks for the pre-order trust, and for the kind words.

    Just a quick note, these posters are now PRINTED (which means you can now place ORDERS, not pre-orders...ha-ha!). Here's the purchase button for anyone interested:

    Thanks so much, Alex, and sorry about the heart-attack. I really appreciate the color-mixing comment. It's probably one of my favorite palettes so far.

    One of my buddy's is a vendor at the show and will be taking the posters with him that morning. So, if you've arranged to pick-up your poster at PatZ, they should be available at the registration table all days of the show. WOO-HOO!!!

    #83 4 years ago
