  1. Hrm, apparently there are two Ryan’s. Gunna have to use another name after this.


    Nah, flipping Whalen’s stuff isn’t worth my time honestly. I just understand why others would take the chance. Most of the stuff I sell is due to buyers remorse, and only if I can’t trade it away on EB.

  2. @admin, thank you making that clear…I had noticed on the web that Justin runs Mondo or is the head boss. So, I just assumed that he made all the decisions. So, blame the entire system and not the flippers. Also, they could be more open about the process (instead of keeping it a guarded secret) and help others who would like to do this.

  3. To solve the flipper problem have open, timed editions. And, then print as many as where purchased. All this complaining is the same thing that happened during the vinyl craze that went on for the past few years…especially with Converge, Botch, ISIS and Sunn O))) vinyl (to name a few).

  4. @Real Ryan, I was just kidding with ya. You had an interesting point I had never thought about.

  5. Flipped the regular Hugo print and made just over $20.00 profit. Not much but better than nothing. Now I have $20.00 extra in my pocket to put toward the next print that I like.

  6. Natas, why the hell would Mondo help other poster-outfits by giving their business-plan away? You sure as hell don’t see anyone in *any* other form of business give out information on their business partners/contacts. If they did either, they wouldn’t be in business for long, or keep their contacts.

    Most poster artists freely share techniques, because the key to success is pretty much only doing steady, good work and building a name. However, the idea that Mondo should publish the type of information you talk about is flat out ridiculous, and this is coming from someone who is a printer himself.

  7. I still wanna know whats really in the big mac special sauce!

  8. @Kim, so if someone has a great and wonderful idea and does not have the means of contact and the idea gets lost and is gone. But, if someone would help that person out who has the information, then that it is truly a good thing. So, what you are saying, it is not about the art but the money. And, that is what I thought. BTW, I run a DIY label and received lots of help and information from other labels and they shared their experience with open arms and continue to do so.

  10. Natas: That is not what I’m saying at all, I am saying that there is a huge difference between artists sharing techniques, and a large company handing out their businessplan and their industry contacts which is what you suggested earlier.

    The first happens every day over at Gigposters where artists share their process, their studio layouts, the blueprints for building your own equipment, offer discounts on used machinery and countless other tips and tricks, the second never happens anywhere because it is ridiculous for a business to do so and no one in thier right mind expects them to.

    Mondo is a large business, I would guess that they have a relatively large overhead for being in the poster business, and they have employees, that factors into their individual pricing, the decision to do variants, the sizes of editions, shipping costs and every other part of any release. They have been able to get a good network going with regards to licensing, and they are very, very wise to guard that network, just like any business would guard their list of clients, because that is their business and the thing that keeps them off the streets.

    Sharing techniques between artists is great, but it is a completely different thing.

  11. @Kim…I agree with the artist sharing and that I know happens all the time, but that networking would be useful to some of those with great ideas who do not know who to contact to try and get a license. Plus, they have enough of a following that it would not hurt the business model. It might even help them with new people.

  12. No matter how you nice this one up, @natas, yer wrong this time. The more time any business has to spend keeping ahead of the competition to make ends meet, the more the work suffers. The art HAS to be about the money, or the art goes away. If you have a great idea, work hard to put it out there, if nobody buys it, it probably wasn’t that good of an idea in the first place. Stealing somebody else’s ideas/clients/contacts, only waters down what you do.
