My buddy tried to get into the lottery this moring (not on the mailing list yet) and he just gets a newsletter confirmation email. Nothing saying he was entered for the lottery

your buddy can't read as it looks pretty straight forward to me.


--------


Sign Up to Purchase

Name
Email
Please do not submit more than once.

How Does It Work?

To purchase a print, enter your name, email address and then hit submit.

Your name will be entered into a lottery pool. We will randomly pick names until the editions are sold out. If your name is drawn you will receive an email which includes a Secret Code. The code along with your email address will be used to log-in to a secure website to make the purchase. You will have 12 hours to finalize the purchase after the code email is sent. If not all prints are purchased within the initial selection, a second round of emails will go out until all orders in the edition size are finalized.

* Limited to one print per person.

No, that happened to me as well.

I filled out everything last night, woke up this morning to an email saying I signed up for their newsletter. I resent everything this morning (from the same link on their original email) and received the response I was looking for. Hopefully I didn't get counted as entering twice...

$30 for domestic shipping for a 19x12.5 print talk about a fail.
if they wanted more money just jack up the price of the print but don't bullshit me with ludicrous shipping costs

Agreed. That's always bugged me. I think they might keep the shipping rates flat regardless of the size of the print. Many of them are oversized (but I still doubt costs approach $30). The smaller prints take a hit here.

Yea, it annoys me that if I were to get picked I'd pay $30 to ship a print from Brooklyn to Queens.

I'd rather pay $30 to guarantee that the prot arrives safe than pay $10-$15 and have a crappy packing job. If you can't afford the extra $30 maybe you shouldn't be buying this print.

paypal/creditcards/ebay all charge fees equally on shipping vs. products. they don't care if it's a .01 poster with $100 shipping or $101.01/free shipping.. fees are the same.

exactly, have to take into account the "handling" fee: preparation + sturdy tube.
