    Default Any interested in large art prints?

    Without realizing it I accidentally ordered 10 24"x36" prints from my publisher when it was meant to be just 1. So now I'm stuck with all these prints that I paid a small fortune for with nothing to do. I'm wondering if any beyonders might be interested or willing to buy one or know somebody that might. They are all printed on Kodak Professional Metallic Endura paper and to say the least they all look freaking wicked. I'll try to get a shot of what of them framed so you can all see.

    The picture is of the sunrise atop Mt. Haelaekela in Maui.



    More a less just want to break even on this since ordering 10 of these was extremely costly and a mistake I'm sure I'll never make again.

    So how much? It's basically a huge picture of the above pic, right? A shot with the frame would be nice so I can see how it turns out on your wall.

    Yep that's the basic idea. I'm going to try to take a picture of the frame I bought with the matte I did. I think it works out to around $80 just for the print. I'm really quite pissed since I am sure I entered a 1 in the quantity field when using the ordering system. The entire idea was a gift for my Fiancee since we were moving into our new home, and actually her first home. Nothing like getting nearly $1,000 in prints to make starting life in a new house interesting.

    Here's how mine looks framed. I bought a pre-made frame at michael's that was decently priced and had a custom matte made.



    Should say I'm waiting to hang it on the wall for the father-in-law to come back since he always seems to hang them with uber precision lol. I myself suck at hanging frames properly lol.

    You didn't notice when you checked your ROES review that you were paying almost $1000?

    How much are you selling each print for?

    That's just it, I ordered 3 other prints the same size and had 1 of each come in. The ROES didn't say there was 10 and I'm sure of it. I've been playing phone tag with them. Worst part being the idiots shipped it using UPS after I requested a drop shipment since my address has changed. UPS comes to the door with their typical BS bill.

    Nothing but one big headache. I think it ends up being around $80 per print when everything is said and done. I really wish the government would step in and start regulating brokerage fees. I don't understand how paying nearly 20% of the value of package makes any logical sense.

    Awesome photo, and looks wicked mounted.

    Personally, I refuse to buy anything from the US if it's being shipped UPS. I've negotiated with a couple eBay-ers to send USPS or FedEx before bidding. Some will, some wont. If they won't, I don't buy.
