1 color screenprint the same price as a 4 or 6 color screenprint?

Assume there is variable cost on licensing to factor in, along with artist rates, etc.
When stressed about getting a drop, just remember: it will decay into the same organic matter as inevitably as your rotting corpse no matter how much museum glass you put in front of it.

Is Jay printing these himself or are they going through D&L?

Conversely a 4 or 6 color screen print for the same price as a single color? 8)

In all sincerity I don't think that's a good way of looking at poster pricing. Material costs aren't as big a factor as things like licensing, paying artists, employees and overhead are. Besides would you consider Olly's Evil Dead worth less than my Black Dynamite because he used two colors and I used five?

I would say your Black Dynamite is highly undervalued.
