***UPDATE- ALL TUBES ARE NOW SOLD OUT! THANK YOU SO MUCH!***
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!
TUBE SALE WILL BE ON WEDNESDAY 11/4 at 2pm CENTRAL TIME
We’ve got a PRETTY GOOD stock of tubes to go around, less than some of our tube sales, more than others…however- NOTE– we’ve never NOT sold out of a Tube Sale- so be ready!
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?
MYSTERY 12×24 PRINT.
We will have a print in Doyle’s 12×24 print series that will never be available on Nakatomi site!
Every tube ordered will get one. The amount of tubes sold will influence the edition size (duh).
If you totally want to be spoiled as to what the mystery print is- feel free to CHECK OUT OUR INSTAGRAM.
You are welcome to buy as many tubes as you want- you will receive a copy of one of the exclusive print in each tube. Only one tube per order– we cannot combine shipping- as we can only fit 5 prints in each tube!
We’re randomly inserting a totally awesome and unique test-sheet with orders! A test sheet is like 4 prints flying at your eyes at ONCE! Truly 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! There’s a good amount of UnReal Estate 4 screens that are in this crop, that made crazy fun images, and I really dig that one on the top left with a character from Russ Moore’s recent print looking out over a psychedelic landscape of abstract color! These are all totally unique- no two prints are alike!
FYI- no tube will have more than ONE test sheet in it, if at all!
VERY SPECIAL “MAILMAN WILL HATE YOU” TICKET!
There will be EXACTLY ONE of these- One lucky tube-buyer will receive a ticket that will get them ONE of EVERY single poster currently in print, that is published by Nakatomi! That means ALL Tim Doyle’s prints, Bernie Wrightson’s prints, and many, many more. Literally DOZENS of posters- regular, variant, foil- WHATEVER edition- if we published it, you will get a copy of it. If you get this ticket in your tube, give us a shout, and we’ll get the MANY PACKAGES out to you asap!
SUPER CRAZY BONUS TIME PRINTS-
Along with all the stuff above, we’re also randomly inserting some crazy-rare prints and art pieces! Above is pictured 3 hand-painted and embellished ‘The Big Twinkie’ Ghostbusters prints from Doyle’s UnReal Estate show! These are hand-done watercolor art pieces with printed line art!
UnReal Estate- Black and White editions!
These prints were produced for UnReal Estate and never released to the public- each in a TINY edition of only 15 copies! Super rare and available here for the first (and only) time!
Both Tyler Stout’s Return of the Jedi and REVENGE of the Jedi prints! We picked these up from an ex-Mondo employee, and again- JUST GIVING THEM AWAY.
Aftermarket value on these top out at over $800 EACH…don’t say I didn’t ever give you guys nothing!
Also- did we mention- the corners…THEY ARE SHARP!
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- we’re may start a little early or late with the drop time, as we’ve had massive server issues during these high-demand drops before, and we’re trying to cut down on that. But as always- it’s going to be a slog getting through check-out once word spreads that these are up for sale. Trust us- we’ll do what we can, but it’s rarely enough.
DELIVERY/ SHIPPING NOTE- because the Mystery Doyle print is going to be produced AFTER this sale goes live, please give us 2 weeks to start shipping these. Thank you.
