That is their business model so it makes perfect sense. John tried to open it up to mondo type posters but found people in this group to be very difficult to work with at times. Actually had someone ask him to pay full market price for a print they fixed but then the client sold it and it got damaged because it wasn't supposed to be rolled again. But because he assumed the client would never sell it he never mentioned it.

Different clientele, different habits, different headaches.


That's understandable. I got my fingers crossed. This print took a long time to track down and it's not something I'd sell. I bought it off ebay last year and the seller kept it in a tube for years. The kraft paper it was rolled in was rotting away and the print was damaged. I took a partial refund because I didn't want to let go of the poster. I even got it signed by Ken Taylor. I tried the water trick on the scuff last night and it didn't help at all. If PM can't help I'll just get it framed. The creased on the edges can be framed out and maybe if I'm lucky the scuff won't be noticeable behind glass. I just saw that amazing job they did on that mummy print and was hopefully they could bring my poltergeist back to life.
