It didn't take much effort to remove the caps on my numbered print. There was very slight edgewear, but nothing major. This reminds me of how some of the Vote prints arrived trashed and others with little to no damage.

Mine showed up with significant edgewear so I'll try the replacement route. I'm happy they are not trying the renumbering/reprinting chaos that occurred with the Grateful Dead Emek (or at least that what it seems if they say they are issuing a print from later in the run). Just hope it doesn't take another 2 months.

I'm going to United Pot Smokers today to pick this up, going to call it:

The Christmas Eve Print Massacre

A UPS truck FLIPPED on my brothers road yesterday- its a private road, down a steep hill, completely iced- slid, banked into a guard rail, spun, hit the ditch and rolled over. My niece saw the entire thing. Hope your tubes werent in it.

WTF is special about that number? "This is the precinct where he got his 1st appointment"?

unless those numbers are 2008 or 2009- all you have is a number.

If you have a signature, then yea-thats great too.

Arrived minty fresh yesterday. love the capped ends of the print with bubble paper.

PS

if you have alotta posters shipped to you, now is the time for a Christmas Bonus if the delivery guy is a regular. It pays for itself in a few months when you get perfectly handled tubes.

I think the issue is they are rolling them so tight to fit in the bubble wrap condoms
