  1. licensing artwork for merch

    Yea, I made an illustrated admat for a large (10,000+) festival overseas last month. Took me 70 hours as usual to illustrate it. And I agreed as usual to do it for $500. That comes out to 7 bucks an...
  2. What band is the most against the accumulation of nuclear weapons?

    Yea, I don't want to start a famous Gigposters pile on. But I also thought Julia Green's Emek is "soooo overrated" comment to be a bit lame or maybe a little jealous. Gig posters were already cool...

    My beef is that I was talking to some gig poster artists a while ago that were all big on this "That would be bootlegging, you have to have permission to sell posters with bands names on them. A...
  7. So how can you tell if they are doing a bootleg,...

    So how can you tell if they are doing a bootleg, if they are not selling them themselves? If they get a third party to sell them one at a time on ebay, it looks like a collector is just unloading...
  8. I don't care what anybody says there is money in this for right artist/show

    For instance, this artist is really good, and even though Neil Young is not the biggest act, he printed over 930 prints of this. If he sold them for $40 each that is over 35 grand gross. If he...

    Yea, I saw that thread. So if I understand the comments, the consensus is that though the idea of printing on film with six cartriges sounds good. The end product is surprisingly only a little better...
  10. Anybody want to sell their copy of AccuRip EX?

    I am thinking of buying an Epson 9600 large format printer and getting that six in a row black cartridge to print my films. Anybody else out there use this software hardware combo? Is it worth it? ...

    I wonder how many hours Horkey has in these really intricate pen and ink illustrations. These are basically modern masterpieces in my opinion. Very detailed and beautiful. I would have to assume that...

    numbered series posters questions

    I notice that some gig poster artists number and sign their posters.

    Most of the time there is a first number that is the print number, and then a second number that is how many were in the...

    I went to a local paper seller and I think I like the 100 lb cougar paper. I think I am going to use TW inks because they are water based, less toxic, and were recommended by professionals on this...

    Thanks for the info. Maybe I will wait out for a good 9600 on ebay or craigslist that is not too far away. Until then I will outsource my films.

    Anybody else have good luck with a 9600 printing...

    Thanks for the tip squeegiethree,
    I can get a 9500 for a couple hundred bucks or maybe free if I am lucky, or a used 9600 can be had for a grand, or a used 9800 can be had for 3500.
    I wonder if the...

    My semi automatic press goes up to 40 something inches printable area. And most of my posters are in the 24" to 30" tall range. Squeegiethree, do you think an Epson 9500 could print well enough and...

    Hmm, the printer Sqeegiethree mentioned, the "Epson 9600" 44" is an older model, but it only goes for $1500 used (hopefully not abused) Is there any benefit to going with a 9900 series wich is new...
  18. Yea, that is true, any press can be good press. ...

    Yea, that is true, any press can be good press. If some gig poster artist becomes a notorious criminal or murderer, the posters would probably sell for more on ebay. I heard that F'ing Hitler tried...

    It seems like most of the people on this board don't like self promotion. I think it brings more snarky comments than any other situation on this board. The artist who posted this is either pretty...

    Where do you get your wasua ink from? I went to their website and the resellers listed were places like office depot. I imagine I could get 8.5 x 11 pretty easily there, but I am looking for larger...
