Hello,

I really need someone's help on here to receive a poster for me.

I have an excellent Black Sabbath poster being saved for me at the Genting Arena in Birmingham. After a lot of discussion, they decided they will not mail it outside of the UK, but they will mail it to somebody within the UK if I provide them with a UK address.

I only have this week to find somebody to help me out and receive this poster for me, and then you would mail it to me.
Or, if somebody lives in Birmingham or nearby, and can pick up the poster for me at the Genting Arena, that would be even better.

This is a very important poster for me; it's a poster for Black Sabbath's final concert that is being sold and the money goes to a charity they have picked.
I really, really want this poster, I don't want this opportunity to pass me by, it would crush me, and I only have this week to find somebody.

Can somebody help me out here?
And many thanks in advance....

Hi all.

Have been on expresso beans for a while but never quite figured out how it worked. Am now trying to track down a The Joker: Black Mirror 13 by Jock (http://expressobeans.com/public/detail.php/175494) and have had my hand forced!

Have found a US seller willing to part with it at a good price, but if I can track one down in the UK obviously that saves hassle for all concerned.

Cheers!

Has anyone had any luck finding any 24x36 sleeves in the UK lately?

You could try Preservation Equipment Ltd. Pricey but still cheaper than having stuff shipped from the States.

Yeah, a couple of years back for 24x36 sleeves. I went with the 955mm x 625mm. Just over 24x36 making it easier to insert the print, though the 75 micron thickness makes the sleeves pretty sturdy and it can be tricky. Their sleeves are high quality products.

As for the price - why spend all that money on prints and then scrimp on protecting them? That's how I justified it to myself anyway.

Thanks again.
That's a really good way of looking at it.
I think I'll try them out, might have to go a little bigger, I have a couple of Horkey's that are a weird size.

Hi all. Have been on EB for a while but never really made the most of it. Having just been stung badly by customs importing something, thought I'd ask you folk whether you had - or knew of - any Jock stuff for sale on these fair shores. Have most stuff from the last couple of years but have made sure my "wanted" and "collection" pages reflect the state of play. Anyway, it anyone has anything or any intel, drop me a line! Cheers!

I'll have a rummage through my flatfile. Can totally get you a cannibal holocaust though. Jock still has some of those left. :D

I found some sleeves for sale on amazon uk that work for 24x36 prints, even 30x40 too!
I've just placed an order so I'll report back if anyone is interested.
