    If they do, they better not pull some "We had to raise the prices because people were buying 100 posters the first day" bullshit.

    Limit sales to 1 per customer, please don't insult us with more of the above.

    1 is silly, but so is 100. I'd say 3.

    1 is not silly. there is no reason you need to buy more than 1.

    I think EMEK is doing it ... someone in the know has intimated it to me ... I could be wrong.

    As for how many to sell ... well, GV was stuck with a bunch of prints after the All Points West show, and they didn't sell off the APW site for a LONG time. I assume they will do what ever they need to in order to make sure they are gone by festivals end.

    Just to be clear, I'm in no way for raising the price as the stock diminishes. Just show up early and buy when they go on sale.

    listing it for $500 is different than selling it for $500...

    I buy a poster as soon as I walk in and put it in my locker. Last year I saw some fat sweaty dude clutching a ream of posters. Gluttonous fuck.

    lots! search for a thread called "Show Posters." I think it's in the music lounge. The stuff from Burlesque of North America is excellent and I really like all the posters from Rob Jones. I have a couple from Methane Studios as well.

    He did the My Morning Jacket poster for their Red Rocks show last summer.

    They way they sold the posters there was you went to the merch booth and purchased a wristband (limit of 1), then you had to come back AFTER the show to get the poster.

    Merch guy said that's how the band wanted it done to make sure the fans could get one.

    He has done quite a few of their posters. I have two myself from their last two PDX shows. They did the wristband thing here too. Great idea.

    I hope so! I bought one last year, threw it in my locker and will frame it one day soon. The posters Emek did for 2007 went for the most on ebay, probably from winning that award for it. People wish they could sell the 08 ones for close to the same amount but are lucky if they get over $100

    Get there early on Friday and buy it before the prices raise. That's my plan.
