I am flying from Vietnam to San Francisco next week (12th September) and want to visit some poster shops - where do you recommend - I am only over for a day and a half so will only have a couple of hours to shop around! Cheers, M

Kidrobot has a shop as well.. I know its not a poster shop but if you are into the 'art' scene you might want to check it out. Also there is a poster shop right near there.

Email Chuck and ask for a tour, if he's around I bet he'll show you around his warehouse/studio.
