$1500 for this is a very fair price. last few hand finished prints around the same size have been $1800.

Mate any dog under 1k £ is a bargain i have been looking for 2yrs on a particular edition and i have not found cheaper than £1350 even the one that sold a few months ago from the ecru edition of 12 was a bargain at $2k, may we all find a Faile dog this year.... :pint:

totally agree, i was thinking after i wrote that even at $1500 that would be a deal. probably won't see a deal like that again for a long time.

Not my favorite image, it always feels like it's missing something. That being said I'm sure they'll looks great in person.

it was their bread and butter for basically their entire career thus far. only the last year and half have they got away from them. hopefully many more to come!
I would think the movement towards large editions and smaller prints without hand finishing goes back to the block prints 4 years ago.

yeah that is true in a sense. they slowed way down after their Lost in Glimmering Shadows series but at least in 12 they put out a few hand finished prints. not a single one last year (not including the 150 series) at the same time i respect them for putting out affordable stuff for the average fan.

Popped my sticker cherry yesterday when I put the Faile dog on my truck. First sticker, outside the registration, I've put on any car I've ever owned.
Wanda: I can't stand people. I hate them. Do you hate them?
Henry: No, but I seem to feel better when they're not around.

I think they are aiming a bit high with the cost of that Pearl Jam print...

ya forget the $1500 that is 100% normal imo...the PJ print that is the exact same as the show print, albeit signed, marked up 400%+ is worthy of discussing tho :)

d face sold that at a slightly higher price point and they sold out quick and are going for $400 plus on the aftermarket. seems faile is pricing it right.

I Used to be Worth Something seems like a fair price -- I think most knew it would be in that range anyway, so no surprise. PJ does seem a bit overpriced though. What was the original gig poster priced at, $50? $150 seems about right with the sig...$225 is a tad steep.

Either way, will be passing on both of these but good luck to those going for them.
