I don't have an original, yet, but I just picked up one of the official reproductions done by the original artist, Ryan Loiselle. It's a reproduction done to 99.9% of the original, using the same art paste up, same printing press and the same printing company. They are signed and numbered and limited to 100. They are on eBay currently at a great price. He even includes a very nice certificate of authenticity with it.

I wanted to add that only 75 originals were printed and most of the ones that have surfaced offered as "originals" are suspicious. Any "originals" being offered should be expected to be in pretty poor condition with a good deal of fading. "This info according to "Machine" drummer John Purkey.
Ryan he said is proud of these posters and was proud to have contributed the artwork. Ryan is described as a bit of a perfectionist and that he has controlled every aspect of the original printing and reprinting process. He could've cut some corners and saved himself a good amount of money having these reprinted but he spared no expense when it came to the reprinting and it did not involve a photocopier.
As explained, he used the same company and printing press as was used to make the originals. He also used the same original yellow paper and same burgundy ink as well. There were exactly 100 of these RP-1's made with no AP's, "test prints" or printers proofs going out the back door. All 100 are signed and numbered copies.

Drastic Plastic is a head shop in the Tacoma area and there's no doubt that a handful of those bootleg copies got passed off as originals. But If anyone's got an ACTUAL original survivor that they know (with certainty) is an original, please post a picture.

Excerpt from the RP-1 ebay listing:

"This is a limited edition run reprinted from the master original art paste up that printed the flyers in 1990 by Ryan Loiselle. My name is John, Ryan and myself played in Machine. We are doing this auction together. There was originally 75 printed back in 1990 and they were printed from the same art paste up flyer. THERE HAS NEVER BEEN ANY OFFICIAL REPRINT UNTIL NOW. ANY THAT YOU MAY HAVE SEEN MAY NOT BE LEGIT. THE ONLY COLORS EVER PRINTED WAS MAROON ON YELLOW PAPER . This numbered edition from the original has been replicated with the original offset printing press (type) by the same company as the original 1990 run. Produced, signed and numbered by the original artist Ryan loiselle. I personally thought it to be proper for any fan to have an authentic reproduction of the original. These will be numbered to 100. We don't know how many we will be listing on Ebay. Also they will be signed and number stamped on the back of each flyer for authenticity of this reprint. Also included is a letter of authenticity. also the flyer was shown in "Montage of heck"!"

He had some pics of the original flyer in the listing that I uploaded here (currently pending).


I couldn't resist, had to get one of these RP-1s. Pretty sweet flyer

I talked to John Purkey through eBay and the above comment is incorrect about each CoA being unique. He confirmed that all of the CoAs are identical. Therefore, they all show the example for #2. I have #3 and the CoA shows #2. The only reason they match in the photo above is because that person got #2 as well.

If you have any photo evidence of a CoA that doesn't show #2, please post it here, but this information came straight from John.
