Which is exactly the reason someone would ever refuse to provide the pics in the first place. Any seller who refuses is definitely not to be trusted.

If it is from a standard edition and costs less than $100, I ain't taking pics.

In reality you should take pics no matter what the value of the print is. These delivery services don't care if it says fragile on it so having pics is always a good thing.

That's never going to matter. It's only the "after" pics that make a difference. Plus I'm drymounting lazy. The prints sell just fiiiine without actual pictures.

IME, having pics of the actual print on display leads to a whole bunch of sales at more than market value or with many other of the same print available for less. If you're just looking to move a print for market or less, stock photos are fine.

I like looking at FS topics to see what's for sale and what prices posters could fetch.
I don't know every poster in the database by name.
My initial pet peeve post was pointing out the fact that if I see a title and a price but no pic it pisses me off.
Got to search the database which is a hassle sometimes.
Show me what your selling, everybody here could be a potential buyer.

This. I have never found anything that effectively cleans museum glass without streaking. peacedog recommended the TruVue glass cleaner, by I haven't managed to source any yet.


I talked to him on the phone a couple of hours ago and he recommended it to me too.

Also- props to Further Frames. They gave me detailed instructions and recommendations of how to go about cleaning this and most of the local shops just told me about the specials they had on new glass.

I will revisit this project with better ammo and a zen mind 8)


Update on this post from a couple months back. Finally took the time to try out the purple stuff and I'm thrilled with how effective it is. Got all those nasty streaks off of the museum glass on the Stout SW set and put them back on the wall. Definitely worth picking up a bottle. I used an old, super soft tee ripped into pieces like Peacedog suggested. The man certainly knows what's up :pint:


Finally cleaned some glass. Blown away with how well it works. I almost cried tears of joy.
