THE LEAD-UP:
Most of you know me from dealing with Casascius coins, but some of you may know that I also run a silkscreen printing business. I was commissioned by a client to design and print a "What is Bitcoin?" print last year, and since the last edition was such a smashing success, I've decided to revamp the design for this year and print another edition.

THE POSTER:
6-colour 14-layer silkscreen print with hand-inked details on 18x24" natural Cougar acid-free art paper. This is more than double the amount of colours used last year, and the natural off-white paper lends a classy look to the piece.
Limited edition of 83 prints.

THE TIMELINE:
The design will be finalized by March 15, at which point printing will begin. The new design will be revealed step by step as each layer is hand-printed.
Printing is expected to be completed by March 31.


Mailouts will begin as soon as shipping materials arrive.

THE PRICE:
Pricing for this print is 0.15 BTC plus shipping. Flat-shipping is estimated at 0.1 BTC and tube shipping is estimated at 0.05 BTC for North America and Western Europe.
The only payment address is 18eQJRj5dMVtT1TeGr3sVesmFBruCq6f8F. If someone tells you to send to another address, it is a scam.
BE PREPARED TO SIGN A MESSAGE FROM YOUR OUTPUT ADDRESS IN CASE OF PROBLEMS.


THE CATCH:
I've produced digitally-printed proofs of the poster design, but I'm not sharing photographs until the actual print run has commenced, because a digital proof and a real silkscreen print are so very different that one would not serve as a fair substitute for the other. I'll reveal detailed photographs of the actual silkscreened posters once the print run is complete, but PRE-ORDERS WILL BE PURCHASING THIS POSTER BLIND. If you're concerned about this, check the previous sale thread to get an idea of what to expect: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=756955.40


HOW DO WE KNOW THIS ISN'T A SCAM?
Good question! You should check my trust ratings here on the forum, as well as my OTC Web of Trust ratings.

HOW DO WE KNOW THE POSTER ISN'T GOING TO SUCK?
It's the best Bitcoin poster. You're going to love it. Not sure? Just wait for the pictures! The discounted early-bird price is a thanks for going out on a limb, but any remaining posters that haven't been claimed by the 15th at noon will be available for sale, with more pretty pictures each day so you know exactly what you're going to get.

By checking out the process photos, starting here.

THE COUNT:
As of right now, 82 posters have been sold, 1 remains. Please see resellers to obtain a copy.

No longer buying/selling Casascius coins. Beware scammers.

Will this be a totally original design or resemble the first poster you did? I'd buy one if it's a new design

I'm an expert shipper -- ask anyone who's ever received a package from me.

The last batch was the first time I ever flat-shipped something this big, so I did some stress tests: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=756955.msg8674055#msg8674055

That said, if you don't mind your print having a curl, tube shipping is fine. Some people REALLY hate it when artwork is rolled because the curl tends to set in the paper; just as many others don't mind. If you're not planning on getting it framed, it's probably not worth spending the extra money on flat packing. Please don't use thumbtacks either way Cool

Will this be a totally original design or resemble the first poster you did? I'd buy one if it's a new design

I think the text of the original design is quite eloquent, so I think I'll keep that generally unchanged and drastically modify the colour palette and specific details of the design itself, while keeping the same general flow and overall shape and feel of the original. The intent is that the two pieces can be appreciated individually, or provide a striking juxtaposition when placed side by side. Think day vs night, opposite sides of the mirror, etc.

If you're not sure, you can always wait until I start posting photos!

For those who missed out on getting a first edition, here's some process pictures that you may find interesting: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=756955.msg8575850#msg8575850

Daily bump. Four prints sold already! You guys are art fanatics. It's really encouraging to see a market for artwork that isn't just lame digitally-printed images (AKA colour photocopies Wink ).

Obviously folks around here understand the value of hand-printed items.

I will also take one of the early bird copies. I have one of the first editions...might as well collect these also.

All three of you please send funds to address in OP and PM me your mailing address, unless I already have it permanently etched into my brain from all the coins I've mailed there in the past Cool

Got the colour scheme finalized and it's looking pretty rad! Diving into the individual components of the design now to smarten everything up. Going for lots of fine detail in this one.

Current cost for a single poster & shipping based on today's rates:

Roll shipped: 0.146 BTC
Flat shipped: 0.195 BTC
Extras (each): 0.1 BTC
