I don't need a H8 print, but I can't deny that this is an exceptionally gorgeous print that I can see getting better with age and years later down the line, this is the kind of print that will make you want to revisit the movie.

I think the print is great for what it is and that is why I bought it. Believe or not, I still have not seen the film. Doubt I will be disappointed though.

Was that gif directed at me? If so, I don't get it.

The real question is if Tyler Stout did an amazing Nickelback print, would you hang it?

Bunch of the mondo posters have screening dates on them that most have never been to. Or screenings that didn't happen. Or dates that don't exist. And that is cool too.

I know a few folks that have that personal policy of not buying gigprints for shows they've not been to. I don't really subscribe to that myself, but i do prefer it to at least be a band i like. If it's not for a show i've been to, and not a band i like, the art has to be pretty fantastic for me to go for it.

That's actually common practice. Tons of dudes do that.

There's hanging a poster for a show you haven't been to and then there's hanging a Nickelback poster.

Are the shipping rates still messed up? Or did they increase the prices? I went and checked the price for a 18x24 poster and got "Mixed Merchandise $17.30", but my last order with Mondo (Silent Hill) is "Mixed Merchandise $14.30".

Yah, it looks like some things are messed up. Some people are paying more than what they used to pay. Only people that seem to be getting a good deal are Canadians who are somehow paying less to get a poster than people in the US. Makes no sesnse.
