Gonna be pre-ordering one of these very soon as I can't find anything that matches it :wow: :D
What's your recommended time frame on flattening them out Mate?

depends how long they have been rolled. Like if you get a poster from a gallery mailed and you take it out of the tube the day you get it, within a few hours it will almost be ok for a portfolio, within a day it would pretty much be OK

if it's been rolled for a few weeks/months then you may need a good week or two to get it flat enough

if longer then untube it, and unroll it from the fraft paper but let it sit rolled for a day or so to let the paper breath, then after a day or three then start flattening it, it may take a few weeks to flatten

also by flatten i mean mostly flat, once it's been rolled you may always see a bit of curvature at the ends but basically you are looking for it to mostly lay flat without rolling up. like you may see the ends flare up a bit, at that point you should be OK to store in the portfolio.

once it it in the portfolio the weight of the other posters will also help flatten

No longer shipping internationally.
I have an order pending with them that said it would ship in September but no movement on it. Hopefully they'll be able to honor it.

@Strangerbyday were they shipping internationally before, I was not aware they ever were. I would say reach out to them and confirm.

If not I thought at Vice Press they were selling some too but also in an extreme scenario if you wanted to use my address to ship to, but I have no clue how expensive it would then be to ship over to you, I could imagine it being quite a bit

Yeah previously they were shipping internationally, there was a section in the FAQ on their site that mentioned international orders & there was a full list of countries in the drop down when checking out.

I emailed them earlier & they confirmed I’ll still receive mine but international orders ship a few weeks after domestic so probably won’t ship till the end of October. They also confirmed they’ve stopped international orders for now, presumably due to the changes in VAT & tax for EU countries.

Oh, bloody shame.
Really wanted to be picking one of these up soon and last I checked they were still shipping over to the UK, **** that they are no longer :wow: Worst thing is that I cant seem to find anything else of this size :cautious: Gonna have to hope that they start to ship back over here soon.

glad you got one. I'll say if posters have been sitting for a while in tubes then take time flattening them and they most likely will never be truly flat. If some posters have been in tubes for a while then I would take them out and let them breath a bit, then you want to have those posters laid flat for a good two weeks before putting in the portfolio

i'm close to needing to order a third portfolio

Thanks for the info mate.

When it comes to the posters is it ok to put posters on top of others when laying them flat or is it best to have them laid out on their own?

Have a couple laid out at the moment but would be handy if I could lay a couple more on top as don't really have the space the lay many more out, especially if your recommendation is to have them out for a couple of weeks.

I mean for a few weeks I personally believe it is OK, I do it though I do make sure there is tissue paper between the posters. I am sure others would say don't but for a week or two unless you get extreme weather I personally think it will be OK.

One thing I do for flattening is to get two acid free foam boards, usually you can get these at art supply stores, and sandwich the poster between the boards
