Oleg: why don't you sell your posters, printed out. THR members i'm sure would buy them, just use the money for pro-gun legislation, getting antis out of office, or whatever. It's a great way to raise some money for the cause, and at the same time, get our message out to the public. I'd buy a poster or 10. i don't think printing them would be very expensive.

Who in here has experience with publishing posters? I could use help in making this happen.

May I point out that Oleg does sell photoprints of a lot of his work. Gave one to a nephew who loved it.

They have a calculator on their page. The print them from digital images.

Basically 2' X 3' would be $1331 per thousand shipped to MA(used my zip code) printed on card stock. $1197 printed on paper.

It ain't worth lesser quanitities.

Kinko's Now has the ability to print out posters. I'd look for a locak graphic printing company who can produce in quantity. Depending on the number of posters and the size initial investment could be cost prohibitive.

Check out:

It looks like they can give you a good Idea of costs, sizes, paper quality, etc...

The "one off" printing like Kinkos can be of inconsistent or poor quality. Good posters (like we are used to seeing) are lithograph printed. In quantity, they are not expensive. But having a variety requires a significant investment (and shipping in tubes) meaning that Oleg (or his licensee) takes the risk of selling 1000 of each or having them sit in the garage (and risk damage, etc.).

I'm not trying to dampen the idea (I'd like to see them in every gun store, at least), just pointing out that there are logistics and an investment to consider.

You might give zazzle.com a try, they do online printing of digital art, similar to what cafepress.com does with shirts and whatnot.
