Hello from DHM to all "Beatles x SHAG" Reserve Buyers + "Universal Monsters x SHAG" Waiting List Collectors! PLEASE READ ALL DETAILS BELOW IN FULL, CAREFULLY, IT'S LONG, BUT HOPEFULLY COVERS ALL SO THERE IS NO MISUNDERSTANDING PERTAINING TO EACH GROUP INTERESTED IN PURCHASING SHAG'S "UNIVERSAL MONSTERS x SHAG" LIMITED EDITION FOLIOS. ABSOLUTELY PLEASE FEEL FREE TO EMAIL US WITH ANY QUESTIONS OR CLARIFICATIONS NEEDED. BUT PLEASE, EMAIL US BEFORE THE SALE DATE AT: info@darkhallmansion.com SO WE CAN ADDRESS YOU QUERIES-IN ADVANCE! First, thank you again to those purchasing Dark Hall Mansion's prior "Beatles x SHAG" release, we're very grateful and appreciate your support of DHM and its projects! As a special special circumstance of your Beatles buy you have a TEMPORARY reserve on purchasing our current release: Dark Hall Mansion's officially licensed "Universal Monsters x SHAG" 10-Print Folio. We want to underscore the above word-TEMPORARY-in fairness to those collectors presently on DHM's "Universal Monsters x SHAG" waiting list so there is no misunderstanding whatsoever. Prior "Beatles x SHAG" buyers please find your purchase instructions for the "Universal Monsters x SHAG" Folios going on sale THIS Tuesday, OCTOBER, 22, 2013 below. Waiting List Collectors, please also review all regarding Tuesday's sale including your own instructions. Both Reserve Buyers + Waiting List Collectors are receiving this same email so all might make arrangements, in advance, for Tuesday's sale of the "Universal Monsters x SHAG" Standard and Variant Edition SHAG Folios. First, "Beatles x SHAG" Reserve buyers: This Tuesday, October 22, 2013, beginning at exactly 9:00 AM PST, you may complete the purchase of ONE "Universal Monsters x SHAG" Folio of your choice, Standard or Variant Edition determined by availability. Orders will be processed on a first come first served basis (again, as pertains to Standard or Variant Edition Folio availability) and payments will ONLY be accepted via Paypal and beginning precisely at 9:00 AM PST to our PP address of record: info@darkhallmansion.com. *NOTE: In fairness to all collectors, any order submitted even one moment prior 9:00 AM PST on Tues October 22, 2013 will be refunded.**NOTE: Waiting List Collectors: Please do NOT submit a payment at this time as it will be refunded!**NOTE: Incoming payments from "Beatles x SHAG" Reserve Buyers will be checked and need match the EXACT Paypal addresses they used to purchase their Beatles prints or their orders will be refunded in fairness to other collectors. Payment totals collectors need submit are as follows, below, as a direct consequence of the respective WEIGHT and USPS shipping charges for a large 10-Print Double-boxed parcel, contents, and requisite coverage for each Folio: "Universal Monsters x SHAG" Std Ed shipped within the US:$1200 + $50 (Insured)Var Ed shipped within the US:$1900 + $60 (Insured) Std Ed shipped Internationally:$1200 + $75 (SHIPPED: Priority Mail Express International 3-5 Business days)Var Ed shipped Internationally:$1900 + $75 (SHIPPED: Priority Mail Express International 3-5 Business days) **CALIFORNIA COLLECTORS must add 7.5% CA Tax to their respective above total (on Folio only-not shipping) in accord with DHM's local CA county tax rate or their orders will be refunded. *Note: Please review the USPS website and its estimated rates and displayed parcel dimensions to understand why rates are what they are. Understand these shipments are LARGE, the prints are all 18" x 24," there is a sheet of glassine paper between each print, the prints are then slip-cased in a SHAG-designed presentation box, and then vaulted within an exterior packing case-so all is very weighty to ensure safe arrival. For Reserve Buyers looking to purchase the "Universal Monsters x SHAG" VARIANT Edition Folio: If you submit a purchase payment for a Variant Folio (of which there are only 50 Folios in the edition) and the Variant edition is sold out you may switch your order to a Standard Edition Folio since you are entitled to a TEMPORARY reserve for one edition or the other, however, you must notify us immediately if you would like the difference between the Standard and Variant edition's pricing refunded you, thus securing your Standard Edition Folio instead, or, if you are passing altogether so we might refund you in full and notify the next collector on the SHAG waiting list. MOST VIP: Know YOUR RESERVE SPOT WILL BE HELD ONLY UNTIL 12 PM PST TUESDAY OCTOBER 22, 2013!! NO Exceptions will be made! We are very sorry in advance if you miss this notification or are unavailable that day but that is a full 3-hour window to complete your purchase and these notices are going out days in advance of TUESDAY, OCTOBER 22 precisely so collectors have time to make their respective arrangements in order to submit their payments accordingly come Tuesday. Once again, please know we are very sorry if you miss this opportunity, if the date slips by, if it catches someone on vacation, or any other reason, but do understand that NO EXCEPTIONS can be made if you miss your reserve spot out of fairness to the waiting list collectors. Know that at precisely 12:00 PM PST on October 22, 2013 if you have not completed your purchase YOUR RESERVE SPOT WILL BE FORFEITED TO THE FIRST COLLECTOR ON OUR WAITING LIST. The Reserve Buyer's window for payment need be abbreviated as the waiting list of collectors looking to purchase a SHAG Folio is considerable and we need get through the offering process this Tuesday in a timely and reasonable manner that recognizes all collectors and so no one needs wait for days on end to complete. OK, now moving on to the WAITING LIST COLLECTORS: After 12PM TUESDAY OCTOBER 22, 2013 (SAME DAY the Reserve Buyers were notified and upon termination of their TEMPORARY reserve slot) we will email the first group of Waiting List collectors corresponding to the number of remaining available Folios for either edition, if any. So for ex, if 20 Folios remain available, then the first 20 people on the waiting list will be notified (right after 12 PM PST) on OCTOBER 22, 2013 and will have an opportunity to purchase those 20 Folios. NOTE! The first Waiting List Collector window will run from 1 PM PST-2 PM PST on OCTOBER, 22, 2013 and Waiting List Collectors need complete their payments within their notified window ONLY! Yes-ONLY 1 hour!! Once again, we apologize in advance if this is inconvenient or someone misses their respective window but please understand there are a LOT of people on this waiting list and we need to get through it as quickly as possible so collectors aren't tied up forever completing. Yet again, this is also why this email is being sent out days in advance, why it will be posted to our website, why it will be posted on our Facebook, and why it will be flagged via our Twitter: So collectors can make arrangements accordingly and in advance of Tuesday. When the first collector waiting list window closes at 2 PM PST on OCTOBER 22, 2013, if any Folios remain, we will then notify the next group of names on the waiting list and those collectors will have their opportunity to purchase from 3 PM PST-4 PM PST. Upon closing of that window, the subsequent waiting list collectors for any remaining Folios will need complete their purchases during the 5 PM PST-6 PM PST window. Finally, the day's last window would run from 7 PM PST-8 PM PST should any Folios remain. Given the size of the waiting list we would ask all collectors to understand if there are no Folios left even after the first window closes, but do know we will keep everyone apprised via Facebook and Twitter updates as to current availability. If any Folios still left, we will resume the process the next day beginning with a window at 9 AM PST and in accord with the same above window spacings. Thank you once again for your extraordinary response to our most recent offering, we are exceedingly grateful to all, these projects simply could not happen without your amazing collector support and we look forward to sharing our upcoming surprises! HAPPY HALLOWEEN and God bless!!! DHM Dark Hall Mansionwww.DarkHallMansion.com

abbreviated version. Dark Hall - please correct if I got anything wrong. Order process is still confusing, will there be a url?
-------

Email was sent to: "Beatles" buyers and those on the wait list. Please contact info@darkhallmansion.com before the sale tomorrow. Purchasing will work as follows;

"Beatles" Buyers: Folios go on sale Tuesday, October, 22 beginning at exactly 9:00am PST. Your spot will only be reserved through 12pm PST (3-hour window). You may complete the purchase of one of your choice, Standard or Variant Edition. Orders will be processed on a first come first served basis and payments will ONLY be accepted via Paypal to: info@darkhallmansion.com. "Beatles" Reserve Buyers will be checked and need match the EXACT Paypal addresses they used to purchase their Beatles prints.

Wait List Buyers: After 12PM on Tuesday, we will email the first group of Waiting Listers corresponding to the number of remaining available Folios for either edition. Example: if 20 Folios remain available, then the first 20 people on the waiting list will be notified at 12pm PST. The first Waiting List will run from 1-2pm PST (1-hour window). When the first waiting list window closes at 2pm, if any Folios remain, we will then notify the next group of names on the waiting list, and those collectors will have their opportunity to purchase from 3-4pm. Ect. ect. until they sellout.

Standard Folio: $1,200 + $50 US shipping

California buyers need to add 7.5% tax

To order I guess you send paypal to info@darkhallmansion.com. They will check when you send payment and who it's from, so Beatles buyers shouldn't order before 9am and everyone else don't order unless you get an email with a time-window.

Exactly.

1)If you bought the Beatles print you need to use that exact same email address and just email your respective payment in-via Paypal only-to: info@darkhallmansion.com from 9 AM PST- 12 PM PST.

2)We receive the payment, we check your payment against the email list of Beatles buyers, if your email's there, you're all good, done.

3)At noon (PST) we see if any Folios are left, if so, we email that number of people from the waiting list, first ones have to complete their purchases from 1-2PM PST. Rinse/repeat, any Folios left after that, we email next waiting list group, they go from 3-4 PM PST, so forth until sellout.

All other details in the essay for specifics :wink:

*NOTE: If you think you were to receive an email but haven't yet just email us at: info@darkhallmansion.com as a few bounced back to us from collector boxes, we'll check against list for you.

Thanks guys!

Not at all, it's an essay and half, no doubt! Just a lot of particulars you have to make sure collectors have in advance.

Thanks again guys, feel free to email anytime: info@darkhallmansion.com

Thanks! I'm really curious as to what time this will officially be a sell-out. $1300 is ALOT of money to drop at one time. I'm assuming peeps pooled $$ together and are going to split it.

I agree, its a lot of cash. I found 3 other peeps to split the set with. Regardless, it's good value for what
you're getting.

190 a piece for Shag prints is a great deal. 120 is cheap.
