well apparently your the only one who thinks that seeing as its going for close to $300. Anytime you can score an emek thats limited to 150 for $75 i think thats an excellent deal!

^I just framed mine and it looks great, and for $75 it's *well* worth it, looks gorgeous, even if it's only in a cheap 28x22" frame, I'm staring at it on my wall right now, and it's very nice, well worth the 75 bones...I don't understand why anyone wouldn't think that, but everyone's different I guess and entitled to their own opinion, plus it's sold for nearly $300 on the secondary market, $75 is a steal IMO :pint: ^

... and once again we end up talking about the secondary value of an Emek print, rather than WHY it's a worthy print... I mean, Christ, I can sell my Swan Station for $300+ but does that make it a great print or hype? You tell me... :roll:

... and I love the fact that sooooo many of these were bought for 1 reason... TO FLIP... :lol:

Slaw... I wasn't really talking 'bout you, so sorry if that's how it came across... I was talking more 'bout the Sales threads and the fact that everyone is HYPING the s**t out of this print to bump up the secondary to FLIP IT... :wink:

i'd love to see a pic of it in a frame if you feel like posting it. i almost bought one last night to do just what you did...toss it in a 22x28 frame. i'd be all over it at face, but i couldn't pull the trigger at 'market value'. there are bigger fish to fry.

comountaingolf I appologize, I thought you were saying I was hyping it to flip, which I don't do, I have never even sold anything on feebay for the record, and when I do sell something on here I always try to give people a price that I would buy it for, I'm in it for the art, not to make money off beautiful artwork. It's amazing in person and that's just one of the many reasons why I dig it so much, not to mention it's for a killer band and it's by one of my favorite artists to boot. :pint:

Slaw,

Any chance you would post a pic of your print framed? I just received mine today and welcome framing suggestions.

Cheers Paul

I just put mine is a stardard 28x22" frame, and my shitty camera would not do it justice or I already would have...sorry, but it's just a cheap black frame, I let the great image do all the justice it does :shock:
