So I was wondering, do prints on BNG actually sell out all the time or does BNG just mark them as sold out to create FOMO and save them for mystery tubes? For example, today's dracula and frankenstein prints were sitting there for a while and then were suddenly marked as sold out at the same time, but they're still available on vice press.

BNG and Vice have an allocation each. I assume BNG has more site activity so they go quicker on there than on Vice's site. or even on Grey Matter or ACME's site when they've done a co-release.

every art retailer holds back additional copies just incase for replacements.

and what other people said.

Vice is also trickier as they're a UK seller, so unless somebody missed out at BNG they may not want to deal with GBP conversion or UK shipping.

And nothing more FOMO than a mystery tube yo.

Great question and I'll be totally open book with it.

In regards to yesterday's release, that was a collaboration with Vice. We had an allocation of the general release. They are actually shipping the prints from UK.

Titles sold out pretty fast, art print took a bit but fully sold out on our side within 20 minutes. The original prints had about 10 left of each so we just put them back into Vice's site because it wouldn't make sense for us to keep them on ours if we just end up selling a single print here and there.

As for other releases, we are very much an artist friendly place. You can hear whatever you want to hear about us but at the end of the day, my goal is to make sure the artists here are taken care of. I like to think its why artists have been releasing here for the past 9 years. Same core.

If we have a release that has like 13 prints left and its just not moving, we don't need them to just sit there to make that extra $. I rather sell it out and have a chance for the artist to sell their own copies. Think about it? If we just kept it on our site and then they get their copies, chances of someone really buying theirs is low. Thats how they make their extra money.

Also, it's been said many times but we definitely never sell the entire run. Reason being is that fudge gets lost or damaged can't always replace everything. If something doesn't get damaged and we end up with extras then those go into mystery tubes. Other times, we just see a print and are like this would make a great mystery tube print so we hold back even more.

Like to think thats why many of you guys enjoy the MT. I think most places tend to go into MT all wrong. We treat our MT as a special event here. Not saying you are all going to love what you get (just need to pop into a Phish group to see that) but it seems lime a majority do. We do try our best with it and in order for that to work, we need to invest in it a little.

Plus, its a great advertising tool for some artists. I saw about 3-4 join Joey Feldman's collectors group due to it. Getting some fine art prints into the hands of people who just always buy Batman is never a bad thing. Opens eyes to new artists that they would never purchase. Welker, Masthay, Pollock, Martin,I think its safe to say it now but Shang also. I mean this with all due respect to anyone who is a fan and this has nothing to do with the history behind the actual print but that tube helped jumpstart his market. When the tubes started to land, we would get an email probably ever other week asking who the artist is and then it just ended up spreading and good for him. That lasted for around a year or so and then the rest is history.

Now Ill go back to crying in a pillow that I didn't buy AMC stock.
