With the biggest shopping day of the year coming in just a few short days, I figured it would make sense to create a thread to compile the deal talk. Here is what I have found so far. Please feel free to add to this... ignore it... or boo it into oblivion.

I've gotta try a Frame Destination order some time.

My biggest fear is choosing the wrong color mats.

I believe that deal is over in about 6 hours, just FYI. Not sure if they are doing another for the day or not.

Narrow your color choices down and order mat samples from them or you can order a whole set in you use the brand a lot.

Black friday has changed, especially this year. Deals the week before, price-matching and the day itself happening during Thanksgiving day. Then it gets a follow up "holiday" on Monday... too much.

Exactly. And the deals I've seen haven't even really been that great.

Think the OP intended to keep this framing/print/artist related. Screw that retail fudge.

On another note, Josh Budich made a hint today at having a black friday sale.

Since we don't have any cold hard facts yet. Would anyone be willing to shed some light on what to expect in general? Meaning:

Will sites/artists have new stuff with full runs?
Will it just be odds and ends of remaining inventory?

Will it be an all day thing?
Random time? Certain time?

Normal or BLOWOUT ZOMG pricing?

Obviously nobody can predict the future but I am curious to how it might work based on years past.

Still works. I assume they meant tonight at midnight. Thanks for the heads up. I've ordered quite a few kits from FD. Their selection of acid-free mat colors is kind of slim but I've been pleased with the outcome of my projects...

They do a helluva job packing and ship pretty quick.

Joshua budich back Friday email :

I'll keep it short and sweet... My Star Wars - A New Hope prints, "We're Doomed!" are now sold out over at Art V Cancer, so a huge thanks to everyone who snagged one for such a great cause. That being said, I'm dropping my Artist Proofs (APs) this coming Friday, at 12-noon EST, on my site at, www.joshuabudich.com/store. They'll be $60 each + shipping.

ALSO... Along with reduced prices on many of my older, more seasoned prints, I may sneak in a few other prints that have since sold out, or even some new ones throughout the day. So, be on the look out!
