Didn't realize the gloss was exclusive to the AE version. That's cool, and I dig the print, but couldn't justify $200 still. I'm sure those that got it for the wall will be stoked with it - emek print quality has always been top notch.
pay via paypal, use credit card,file dispute at the 20 day mark if suspicious. don't deal with noobs. don't trade with noobs. request feedback ahead of time. there are lots of good people 'round here.

Have people started receiving these and are there pictures of the gloss and double doodle?

I am still wondering why Emek was so secractive about this release, no print run details in the email, nor price, etc. Just a hint w the butterfly. Curous what these look like side by side from the VIP tour prints

have to put this out there. uber disappointed with emek's customer service. feels like he's got his head up his ass. pretty sad for an artist to treat his customers like fudge.

i recently moved and had bought the dead print using my old address as i hadn't had a chance to change my address on my credit cards. i requested my address to be changed (after updating my ccs/paypal), and instead of a polite response i was treated with complete hostility. i don't get it. i've bought around 4-5 print from him in the last 3 years and this is the first time i've asked for my address changed. i did the same thing with a few other artists and they were more than happy to assist.

instead he accused me of raising red flags and being a flipper. pretty sad way to treat your loyal customer base. happy to spend my money else where. just flabbergasted. he sounds like a total prick.

I've had my address changed multiple times too with different artists other than EMEK and no questions asked. I was in the same situation where I was moving and got the drop before the move. Care to share what he said in a round about way? At least did he change the address for you or cancel your order?

from emek:
"because other Flippers have been dong that recently, so its not about you, its about protecting ALL of our customers as best we can when we see anything - its our job and our responsibility…
so, to me, you’re just digging yourself into a hole by acting out…
so don’t push me , or ill just refund you
love, EMEK
"

my reply:
"you know what, just refund me. if this is how you treat your loyal customers, i don’t want to be one of them."

he refunded the order shortly after.

i'll definitely never buy another emek poster again after this.

Not surprising he did that but sucks just the same. At least consider yourself lucky cause you dont have to flush anymore money away towards his overhyped empire.
Emek has always been one of the most hypocritical artists out in the space. He plays the pious, holier than all flippers card publically but privately, he helped create flipping by propping his business model up on rare variants sold to “exclusive super collector” clients who in turn flipped the fudge out of them... with a kick back to the little man of course.
Tough to stand behind a bunch of skulls and bones when you soak the whole picture in....

Wait, THIS was his first response after you sent your email to change addresses?
