Re: 2022 Poster Discussion

Foils have really made me not care about posters as much as I used it. They immediately devalue the regular prints and bring too many flippers who make people think the prints are work 10x as soon as purchased.

    I wish they would give you the option to purchase a poster sight unseen when buying a ticket. Would cut down on scalpers and ensure people that actually went to a show would get first chance to buy one

    The easiest thing to do is to have a dedicated poster that STRICTLY enforces the one poster per customer. Make a person get on line again to buy another.

    They could actually attach poster sales to ticket numbers too. And once the initial rush is over, if there are still more posters available, make an announcement...

    Not ideal options, but people have already proven with great regularity that they won't work within the rules...sellers & buyers alike...

    They could easily eliminate the secondary market/flippers if they wanted to. I think the scarcity/collectible aspect helps them charge what they do and sell what they do.

    I don't really care either way. If I want a poster at the show I can get one. It's kinda cool knowing I stood in line for four hours to get a poster that is now worth $1k. But I'm never going to sell it, so I'd have much rather ordered it online in an unlimited print-run and spent more time at the tailgate. It would look exactly the same on my wall either way.

    edit: Scarcity/collectible aspect is also almost certainly better for the artist as a brand.

    I tried to get a grey street foil when the artist dropped last week but sold out while i was entering payment info. it sucks seeing people buy multiple just to flip instantly at a 100% profit when i was just trying to get one to hang in my house

    eBay.

    Expresso beans.

    Iíve used both. eBay is great if you set alerts - always people selling older stuff for cheap.

    Currently have a Grey Street foil framed that I might actually sell (MSRP, not looking for any bs profit).

    Simply not sure if Iíll keep it. Will let you know.

    well that would obviously be great but no worries if you are at all on the fence.

    Jojo's is a legit site but can be at the high end of the market. Check some of the dmb poster groups on facebook and make a ISO post with an image, people will reach out. Use ebay and expressobeans to do some homework so you know what a reasonable price is .

    There used to be a “ISO tour poster” thread like a decade ago. Does that still exist?
