Ughhhh.... My favorite Fairey print, and it won't even make the wall. If anybody is planning on flipping, maybe we can setup a trade, so that I can actually hang mine and you can make your $.


god forbid you would have to get it professionally framed

I've only professionally framed one print with a value under $500 (War by numbers). I try and frame prints to archival standards with values $750 or above, while buying lower priced standard frames for standard sized prints without much value. Yes, this is a great print in my opinion, but I'm not going to spend $100-$150 on framing a print worth a tick more than that.

My next trip to the framers will already be quite pricey, without adding a custom frame for a print that should have fit in a standard sized frame with acid free backing and spacers. Just my 2 cents.

derek, why don't you just get a standard 22 x 28 frame and a mat? if you've got a hobby lobby or michaels cost would be in the $50 or under range.

The gold is ugly, the yellow looked much better in the .gif

I wonder if they're all 18' 1/4. A member already mentionned he couldn't fit it in a standard 18x24 frame. I thought his copy could have been incorrectly cut down and an exception, but maybe they're all like that.

Mine is 18-1/8" wide. With more border on one side than the other.

My Neil Young is the same way. I couldn't fit into a 18x 24 frame and therefore it's still in the flat file.

Anyone want to purchase?

I have the technical skills of a 2 year old with toes for fingers. I can almost guarantee that me doing anything remotely above placing in a prefab frame would result in spontaneous combustion. :(

Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh :lol:

*I just received a notification email stating "Thank you for your email regarding the Hello Kitty x Obey print. We have had an overwhelming response and will be getting back to people in the order that they emailed. We can not guarantee you a print. " They will be in touch by Monday regardless to let you know if you're lucky or not. They also sent an attachment of the other art for sale at the show. This will be an edition of 300 for $60. The OG already sold and looks INCREDIBLE.

I hope I score one of these bad boys. My favorite Shep of the year.
