Yeah, I'd echo what everyone else has said. Maybe use the the 'will I hang it?' question on yourself. Try to stick to your favourite movies, as it's easy to get carried away with buying. Buy based on the art, not the artist, all artists have their ups and downs. Conversely, if in two minds about going for a drop, especially for popular artists, personally I go for it, better to get a print at the original price and end up selling it on, than regret not going for the drop and having to pay aftermarket prices. But take it easy, it gets tedious trying to sell on when you've accumulated way more than you should have!

the real flips aren't really in the movie print world (exceptions exist of course) but if you are buying stuff by established artists then you are unlikely to actively lose money - but its certainly not impossible and even with the biggest names it happens.

I keep getting caught in the hype and the hopes of scoring the next big thing but it rarely if ever happens (at some point you start to realise your chances of getting on at the ground level with the next Banksy are slim to nil) and the one time I managed to get something that was worth a good bit more than I paid for it, it was a print I just really liked I had never really heard of the artist before :lol:

having made quite a few mistakes and wasted a fair bit of money I would say to just pick one or two artists or themes to follow and try to stick with that - and that print you think you must have chances are you wont even think about a week later :pint:

Thanks for all the advice guys.

I'll just try take it easy at first and not get too caught up in the hype!

So what are you all keeping your prints stored in, and what are the best sleeves to get? I'd like to get something sorted before mines get posted.

^^ a decent temporary measure is to get a big clip frame from Wilkos and some sheets of acid free tissue paper and stick it under your bed or anywhere it can be kept flat.

I use these http://www.valentinosdisplays.com/30x40 ... -1741.html. A bit bigger than 24" x 36" but it's tricky getting that exact size over here

those look good (but expensive) - I always think I should order a ton of the sleeves next time a group buy is in and just stick em on ebay :)
