norby offered everyone to send their prints in to be s/n by Michael.

Josh, an ex-wife, showed up and had a shat.

gigposter donkeys came in and stampeded the idea of s/n after the fact as unethical.

then norby changed course and offered everyone to send their prints in to be authenticated, stamped, and signed.

gigposter donkeys continue to bash this idea because they are generally lazy and refuse to read past page 1 of any thread.


This about sums it up. :clap:

As a first time owner of some Everett's (the lenticulars) I'll say that it would be nice to have a signature on the back of them but don't think I want to part with my prints to get it.

Gigposter Donkeys? Ha. They brought up a good point about the numbering, and it must have been good enough to change norbyjakes mind.

I believe it was the mods at EB who correctly handled the situation as it evolved via PM instead of bashing good folks in public during in the process. I apoligize for giving the GP fodder any credit what so ever.

Just out of curiosity, what medium do you use when the Grateful Dead commission YOU to do a poster?

If anyone has a Red Rocks Allman Bros. Everett poster, send it to me instead. And Michael, if one of them turns up I'm definately interested, numbered or unnumbered, signed or unsigned. I have many of your prints and will not be returning any but it's a nice gesture and effort.

Do you even know anything about printing? Oh, your statement answered that.

Any quality litho printed in the past 15 years is most likely a "digital print".

You should just keep your mouth shut, seriously.

For better or worse, I felt compelled to read this entire thread and I can't get over the tone of some of the member's posts. Why people have to be such freaking d-bags if they dontt agree with something is beyond me. If you don't agree with the idea, say so in a constructive way like some have, (mostly mods) and actually contribute to EB.

The 2nd edition of SCI Art Factory was S/N maybe in a higher run (200?) but included Keller Williams as guest, visibly different in number and inclusion of new lettering.
Official and official. I do not know of any Ralston print issues, a 100% benefit but still worthy of consideration here...
Michael
Michael,
It is my understanding that you never fully signed and numbered the Art Factory edition. Can you confirm? Also, can you go into specific details on which posters of yours are believed to have been bootlegged? Perhaps you can tell us what to look for.

this guy is an asshole for not numbering his prints. he's a bigger asshole for trying to re-number his prints years later. the people agreeing that this is a good idea are drymounting idiots.
