Most people I'd think. I know I did.
Yeh I had to make a swift exit so mine is being shipped to me. I just wondered what the approx dimension on the paper and the image was?
Here's the dimensions of the frame I ordered. Think I left a gap of about 7mm on the sides, maybe 1cm top and bottom...
Frame Size: 276 X 349mm
Image Size #1: To Take Size 142 X 215mm
The paper was smaller than the frame, but had to allow for image alignment
Awesome, thanks man :thumb:

Thanks old bean.

Sorry you were out of the country when TB was on. Would have been nice to see you and J.
I'm guessing I've missed out there, no luck on Stout again. 0/6 now I think.

Yeah, was a shame to not get a chance to catch up. Hope it was a good one for everyone

Anyone looking for Jc Richard-North of the wall? Got a AP for €125 shipped. Also a Eng- Terminator for €130 shipped, soft corners and few creases noticeable on the back but not at all on the front. Still looks great. Probably selling a few more things, so if you see something in my collection, just let me know and maybe I'm willing to part with it.

On another note, anyone score friday at mondo?

Hello,

Does anybody here come from Portsmouth? Or close to it? I may need some help here.
The Portsmouth Guildhall is holding a poster for me and I need somebody to go there and pick it up if possible.
They won't ship it internationally.
And they don't know how much it would cost anyway. What does it cost to ship a tube to Canada?

If they'll post within the UK you could get it shipped to me and I'll forward on. I get cheaper postage rates so it'd probably work out about the same.

They won't ship it within the UK either, because; 'but we are unable to pay postage for something like this as it is not work related. '
I suggested that to them...

Damn, can one of them not send it to you personally and you paypal them? What a pain.

I don't know if they have Paypal or not, I didn't ask. I suggested I send them a money order; I don't mind doing that but I would prefer to find somebody in Portsmouth to deal with.
This is from his first letter:
'If you would like this to be posted to you we will need you to send a stamp addressed envelope/tube to us first in order for us to get it out to you.'
I then pointed out to him that Canadian stamps wouldn't work in England.

Could you get them to put it in a tube and then you organise and pay for the parcel pick up using something like https://www.parcel2go.com ?

This would give you control over the process and mean that all they have to do is hand the tube over to the person who collects it - it's effectively giving them a stamped, addressed tube

It will depend on the size and weight of the tube. Try here for some estimates:
