UPDATE- TUBES ARE NOW SOLD OUT! THANK YOU!
HELLO Nakatomi Peoples!
It’s been 6 months since the last Nakatomi-Wide MYSTERY TUBE SALE, and it’s time to once again tempt fate, cast caution to the wind, and DIVE BACK IN FOR THE CRAZY!
DELIVERY BEFORE X-MAS IN THE USA GUARANTEED!
Tubes are $50 each– Each tube will have 5 prints in it-all suitable for framing. Some are considered ‘scratch/dent’ in that there’s minor printing flaws or a ‘soft’ corner, but nothing that won’t frame out.
The quick and dirty is this- you’ll get 5 random prints from Nakatomi artists past and present, and a shot at some really great bonus prints for $50
So, what’s in the pool of awesome that you’ll have a shot at getting this time out?
“2049” GLOW IN THE DARK EDITION– exclusive to this tube sale! This print measures 12×24 and will be signed and numbered by Doyle. YES- the ballerina and signs all glow in the dark!
Here’s a side-by side mock-up of what it looks like with and without the lights on!
We’re randomly inserting awesome and unique test-sheet with EACH order! A test sheet is like 4 prints flying at your eyes at ONCE! A byproduct of the Silk-screen process, we run screens on scrap paper as we’re working on a project, and what you get is a random collage of color building up on a sheet of paper, until we judge that it’s ‘done’ and throw it on our stack of completed sheets! No two prints are alike! The Nakatomi Staff made sure each Test print this time around looks SOLID. People who are fans of randomness and the silkscreen process will love ’em!
Approximately 1/2 of the tubes will include one of our David Bowie Test Sheets! (examples pictured above!)
FYI- no tube will have more than ONE test sheet in it.
WHAT ELSE YOU PUTTING IN THERE, NAKATOMI?
Over the summer, we managed the METALLICA VIP tour poster series, and we have a handful of each one left over – enough that EVERY single Mystery Tube sold will receive ONE random 18×24 Metallica print. (These will be the show edition prints, not the artist editions, fyi!) The after-market on all these prints are well over the cost of the tube…
There were 23 different prints, and we have copies of all.
VERY SPECIAL “MAILMAN WILL HATE YOU TUBE*”!
This is our new fave part of the Tube Sale so we’re doing it again! There will be EXACTLY ONE of these- One lucky tube-buyer will receive ONE of EVERY single poster currently in print, that is published by Nakatomi! Literally DOZENS of posters- regular, variant, foil- WHATEVER edition- if we published it, you will get a copy of it. The winner last time got around 80 prints in the mail! Retail on this alone last time was over $3500. *- does not actually ship in a tube- this ships flat.
WHAT ARE WE EVEN DOING?
SUPER-CRAZY BONUS PRINTS- These two prints will be inserted randomly into 2 different tubes- OMG CAN YOU EVEN IMAGINE?!?!
Order AS MANY TUBES AS YOU WANT
You are welcome to buy as many tubes as you want- you will receive a copy of one of the exclusive prints in each tube. Only one tube per order– we cannot combine shipping- as we can only fit 5 prints in each tube!
With all this awesome, your odds of striking gold are PRETTY DANG GOOD. Please note- these tubes will be blind-packed, and we have no idea what prints are in what tubes!
5 prints, $50- you can knock off gifts for 5 people all at once, letting you cruise into birthday/holiday/apocalypse season with no worries!
Get your clicky fingers ready- we’ve never had a Nakatomi tube sale NOT sell out.
SHIPPING NOTE- These tubes will all ship by the end of next week- and all domestic (US) orders will receive them by Christmas!
