Re: Thunderball 20 Mann

It’s taken about 3 years to get 4, and while the plan has always been to do them all, I can’t help but think that’s not really possible. I think I’d be content to get through the Moore films. Where are these being sold? Through Mann's site? I can't seem to get a straight answer. private commission ...

Re: Flattening a Print Stored in a Tube

eBay buy, probably. There is tons of listings that have photos of 10 year old (10 as an example) prints that look like they are lifting the books or other fairly heavy weights used to hold them “flat” for those photos. Would never buy one of those unless I thought it was an extremely good deal. Als...

If you aren't going to frame them then a few years should do the trick. I have something that still curls at the end after 18 months after being stored in a tube for 8 years.
Yeah I have a few that have been curling for a while. No matter what I do, I can't get them flat. It's a pain.

Re: What do you want from the new Expresso Beans?

I think your idea indicating the last active date for users is excellent! I apologize, I should have been more specific on the add art function. I think part of my frustration is the timing it takes for approval and adding to the site. I have a couple of pending pieces in que now. I'd also like a si...

Re: What do you want from the new Expresso Beans?

I would like to see old inactive profiles be deleted or removed after so many years without activity. It's frustrating seeing old for sale prints that are void, or go without response. I would also like to see it become easier to add art to the site.

Flattening a Print Stored in a Tube

Does anyone have any advice for flattening a print that was stored in a tube? I have several rare pieces that refuse to flatten out entirely and I would like to get them framed soon.

Re: Flat Files?

Flat files are the way to go. Your best bet is to find something used through Facebook marketplace or craigslist. I found a 12 drawer wood flat file for $400, but I have seen them go for as low as $50.
