I'll throw this out there...

I got one and I hit 'send' exactly when the clock in the link that nowhere sent out hit 2:00:00. I use hotmail and can't see my exact time stamp.

really, it's a crapshoot. Depends on when they get the email. Too many variables.

I got this, but looking closer, it was a shipment notification from the Jermaine prints I scored last week! Did you get those as well?

I'm not too computer savy but I know how to use AtomTime. Sending a request at the specified time has never worked for me. I have yet to score a poster through any of the email sales.

As long as the time works for me and I like the poster, I'll keep trying.

Enjoy it if you got it. :)

I have terrible luck with email sales, so I set up an email from hotmail on my laptop and an email from my work address on my desktop and clicked send with each hand, exactly as the GMT web clock hit 2PM. EXACTLY.

I got a print from the hotmail addy and not from the work addy. I think all 150 were sold in that first second of 2PM.

This is the art print that should be getting all the hype right now.....

The wood Dragon blows this subpar bee art print (which nobody will actually frame) out of the water. Don't get me wrong…I know why there is 25 pages (and counting) about the Bee….everyone wants one to flip. Very few went for this to keep, including myself! This Emek stuff has gotten so out of control….so much so that a mediocre print like this Bee gets so much hype.

further proof that email sales blow
Agreed. I sent in at 1:59:57 and got zippy. If I had waited 3 seconds would it have mattered?
Yes, it mattered, for I sent EXACTLY at 2pm and got nothing... email sales blow...............

I got one and have never had luck sending at the exact moment. To score this one I pressed the send button about 20 seconds early. Did the same when I scored the 10kl :twisted:

I like the Wood Dragon, but I'm not a fan of recycled show prints as art prints. I don't think I own one (if you don't count handbills). I can't put my finger on exactly why. I guess I'd rather see an original piece, which is what the Bee is.
