Hi,

Can anyone offer some advice re the posters on the obey site (the obey offset poster and the set)? What are these like in person?

I'm presuming they're digital prints rather than screens?

Thanks

I think they are screens but I am not sure. It does say thick paper so the quality should be good. The limited screen prints are always on some flimsy paper.

Shoot obey an email, they will help ya out.

I have an offset imperial glory, and it looks just fine.

The offsets are lithos rather than screen prints. They use the same thick stock of paper as the screen prints. Quality is great!

The screen prints always seem pretty flimsy. I hate even pulling them out so I don't damage them.

Obey notes the thicker paper because some stuff is printed on thinner paper which is used for "pasters".

The screen prints are actually on thick stock. You must just not know your own strength.
