THE 2021 MYSTERY TUBE SALE IS HERE!
Hello Nakatomi Peoples!
We haven’t had a site-wide Nakatomi MYSTERY TUBE SALE this year, and the time is nigh! Let’s once again tempt fate, cast caution to the wind, and DIVE BACK IN FOR THE CRAZY!
Tubes will be for sale HERE TODAY Tuesday 9/14 at 2pm CENTRAL!
The quick and dirty is this- you’ll get 5 prints from Nakatomi artists past and present, for just $50
What’s in the tubes this time out, folks?
GLAD YOU ASKED-
Three new marvelous “Shiny Object” watercolor paintings! High quality Giclée’s, printed on natural watercolor paper with archival UltraChrome ink.
These 12 x 16″ editions are exclusive to this Mystery Tube Sale! Edition size determined by the number of orders received.
Signed and numbered by artist, Tim Doyle. One per tube, select the print you want when you purchase!
You can order 3 times, pick a different print for each order, and get the full set.
ONE-OF-A-KIND TEST PRINTS!
Unique test-prints with each order!
As regular buyers of our Test Print Tuesday know, these test prints are always a fast seller on their own- here’s your chance to get one in a tube!
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!
This time out, we have special Test prints featuring Tim Doyle’s drawing of the purple one himself! Purple Prince Prints!
About HALF the tubes will include one of the Prince Prints, and the other half will have the below CASH prints! (if you have a preference, note it in your order, and we’ll accommodate as much as we can!)
CYCLE OF THE WEREWOLF BOX SETS!
2 lucky tube sale buyers will receive a copy of the Cycle of the Werewolf box set (as well as their Shiny Object of choice). These box sets include a signature plate, signed by the late, great Bernie Wrightson. These sets normally retail for $400 each!
We’re opening up the archives here at Nakatomi, and throwing in all our weird rarities and one-offs we’ve been sitting on in some cases for YEARS. Pictured above is the “Crystal Blue Persuasion” blue foil variant of Doyle’s “The Cook” print which was originally released way back in 2010, never available on Nakatomi, only available from us through this tube sale! What else do we have hiding in our flat files?
VERY SPECIAL “MAILMAN-WILL-HATE-YOU-TUBE”!
There will be EXACTLY ONE lucky tube-buyer who will receive EVERY single poster currently in print from Nakatomi! Literally DOZENS of posters- regular, variant, foil- WHATEVER edition- if we published it and it’s in-stock, 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.
NOTE- does not actually ship in a tube- this ships flat.
Order AS MANY TUBES AS YOU WANT
Buy as many tubes as you want– Only one tube per order– we cannot combine shipping, as we can only fit 5 prints in each tube!
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.
TUBES WILL BE on sale HERE at 2pm Central TODAY, Tuesday 9/14 on the Nakatomi store!
SHIPPING NOTE- These tubes will all ship by early October.
