I am a new member of this site and a novice to the world of concert posters.Without any silk screening equipment myself, and no real client base, I don't know where to start. I have a few important questions; Can I sell a poster without the band's permission? Do they own any art with their name or image on it? It seems like a lot of designers create a poster for a band that they like and just sell it on there own. When I did posters for The Tragically Hip, I created the designs and sold them the art. They did all the printing and selling. The posters were laser printed - I would have preferred to have them screen printed. I have many finished poster designs for lots of bands that I would like to get out in the hands of fans. I'm afraid to post them on this site since they haven't yet been printed.
Are laser copies or ink jet posters considered acceptable?
What is a normal size print run?
What can I expect to pay if I have someonelse silkscreen a poster for me?
What is an average selling price for a poster? I could go on and on.
Anyway, your advice and help would be greatly appreciated.
