Can I nominate a post from the comments at OMGPosters?

If it is a Mondo print and Akira it will sell at 500 at least. This will bring more exposure to the artist…a lot more than 90 will ever do. So, why 90 admin? What is the reasoning? Are mitch, justin, and rob creating a demand so they can flip the prints they receive for free and really make money. Think about it. They have control of all aspects of releases, as stated in their interviews, and they know what sells or they would not be in the business. So they create the demand on the secondary market to sell their personal prints for the market price.

Wow Shawn, in all of my years of hanging around poster sites, that has to be one of the dumbest rants I’ve ever seen. Take one second to think things through before you post them on the internet.
We each get one copy of a poster, do you really think we’d make more money on that one copy than making the edition larger? Seriously. That makes zero sense.
Editions on a couple of the posters were kept very low on purpose to be special items for the folks that came to the gallery opening, waited in line for hours, and showed up to support the new space.
I apologize if you feel entitled to have a copy of every poster ever released, but please think your arguments through, this one could not have sounded crazier.
