This probably belongs under something like "print gore" but I know you will will feel this pain. Moving my flatfiles today and came across this stack of 24x36 (some sleeved) with a nice surprise at the back of the drawer:

Fortunately it's a bunch of junk already.

No worries.

Just used one today on a print that arrived with edge damage. Worked like a charm.

Ha I wish I could spoon these. Paper is torn on some and crumpled/frayed. Must have bumped hard into the stack with something when they were getting sleeved.


I am definitely a spoon man. Gots to have a kneadable eraser too.

Be very careful with those things.

I wish I could say that I never damaged any prints but I've torn a couple and accidentally folded over a corner or two. It's like flushed money down the toilet

Long time listener, first time caller.

The random PM from a brand new member asking me what the lowest I will go on a print. I’ve taken to just asking what’s the highest they’re willing to pay.

drymount all the "whats the lowest you will take" messages. Only topped by the ones that send an offer that wouldn't even cover the shipping on the item.

If ya don’t state a price, ya deserve all the tardy messages ya get. If ya do state a price and still get those messages, that’s unacceptable.

I reply back with “What’s the highest you’ll pay?”, and then point to the emovie auction. Because it’s always mondo.

Sadly its not just mondo. Get the same type of questions on spots cards listed on ebay every week. You have this listed at $50 but is $2.50 enough? If not whats the lowest you will take. They also really like if you then raise the price or counter with a higher price than a previous counter. We aren't negotiating down, your cost is going up for wasting my time.

Gotta say I agree with you on this one, wholeheartedly. I've picked up a new practice: reading a question and then filing it away without taking action and moving on.

“You do not see the “Best Offer” button because the price is set and is indicated in the listing. No other offers will be entertained at this time. Please understand, you will be wasting your time and mine by sending an offer via a message because messages with offers will not be replied to. Please also note, the stated price incorporates eBay and all other fees; therefore, I am not currently interested in making any deals outside of eBay unless the item is advertised elsewhere with other means to contact me clearly indicated. If you have any other questions, please ask away and they will be answered within reasonable timeframe. Thanks for looking and Happy Festivus!”
