"No Pushead at SDCC this year :(

Event during NYCC but not at NYCC"
At least the possibility of a Pushead/Horkey event at NYCC kinda makes up for loss of the SDCC event. More time to save money :lol:

Was it sent to the usual list?
I think so - at least I got it. But no spare money at the moment, just dropped my cables at the framer - that will be another $600 :pint:

Have to say, Night Comes Black is absolutely stunning in person! Everything about it from the paper, to the metallics, it's just awesome! Can't wait to get a frame for it. I don't have a ton of prints in my collection, but from what I do have, I don't think anything really compares quality wise!

I used to collect random prints by random artists before I got my first horkey. The quality is way better than anyone else. Now I trade/sell my other prints for horkeys

Question for you guys.

Whenever I've gotten anything framed, I've always used standard size frames and Hobby Lobby has been able to do it up while I've been waiting.

For NCB I've obviously gotta go custom, so how does that work? Will I have to bring it in and leave it there with them, or what? I just don't want to be moving it around too much you know? Trying to keep it in great shape!

A framing shop should have their own flat file for keeping things stored safely while the components of your frame are being ordered, cut, assembled, etc. You could always look up NCB's dimensions and then call ahead and make sure they've got room for... however tall NCB is. As for transporting unframed prints (once they've flattened out), I like setting them on a VERY large piece of stiff bristol(?) board, and holding down the corners by taping down squares of an old acid-free mat I cut up, making sure that there's no way the print could slide and touch the tape itself. Well, that, and making sure there's absolutely nothing else in my trunk before that whole setup goes in there. Try to travel on a day that isn't too windy, too.

Looking forward to seeing how decide you frame it!

Don't go to Hobby Lobby for anything, they're bigots.

But especially don't go for framing, they're not experts, they're overpriced, and you'll get a bad deal. Find a local framer with a good rep.

I would search the internet (and check craigslist) for local framers in your area. You may have a great framing shop that you don't know about right in your town.

So I did end up finding a local framer!

Went pretty simple, black frame, with a white mat and a bit of a deep black mat coming off the edge of that. UV glass as well!

I really had no idea as to what prices cost for this, but all in all it came to $80 which I didn't really think was too bad, so I'm quite excited! Pictures coming tomorrow hopefully!
