Wow im glad I bought the set. I really bought it for the Adam Jones, and the King Buzzo print, but its a nice surprise that all of the melvins and all of green river signed it. I guess i got a deal then at 40 bucks a print! Im surprised more people didnt jump on this right away. I thought the presale would be gone in minutes. I guess you snooze you loose. I guess i should thank secret serpents for sending me a email when they released them! Great people!

if justin rose the price i imagine they must of been flying out the door and the law of supply in demand dictates that when the supply is low the price goes up

The problem is that I was there at the time and ad it to cart with a $65 price and when I updated cart for international shipping it was at $80!! And then $100
Imagine if you go to a store pick something at 5 and when you go pay it is 10...
Justin I've bought from you with no problem but I didn't like what happened.

The way we handled this sale was absolutely no different than any other sale. We had 'x' amount at one price, 'x' amount at a second price, and so on. The way the cart system works is by the invoice number generated at check out. The invoice number is what dictates the price level (as it's connected to the inventory).

Of the 150 printed, 100 (or less) were being sold...and that's between the copies that went to the show and the remainder that we have. Maybe in the future we should just let ebay dictate price when we have such few copies left of a high demand poster. I am pretty sure they would be going for a bit more than what we were selling them for.

The way I see it is that you are really just paying for the signatures, the artwork is, well, it's something...

Secret Serpents has pretty low prices if you compare it to other sites and sellers.

I'm not complaining about the price
I was pissed for having it in my cart for 65 and when I went to pay it showed me $80
Justin has already explained how it works so I'm ok with it
Secret serpents is a great site and I'll keep buying from Justin and this is a lesson learned, next time I have to be faster checking out
