    I don’t support this.

    Kind of a weird request. I’m assuming the OP is asking people to take pics of their posters? Might be dabbling in some copyright infringement there.

    Total fan of this. Fuck the collectors, if I want a print of a show I went to from the 90s that cost $1000 and I can get it for $20 so be it. Obviously not buying to flip or sell just to display in my garage or something.

    The innocent aspect is awesome and relatable. Problem is that there’s already counterfeits out there because of so many crooks trying to make cash on ebay. It wouldnt help things.

    I think one that will stay in your possession is harmless.  The demand for originals won't change. Minimal effect if any

    I am 50/50 on this. As a collector is see the issues. But I also feel the OP's view on it as well. There are bands I like that don't actually do gig posters, but do create a digit art piece for a show. What I have done in the past is printed off my own poster from these shows attended using the digital art.

    I use Poster Burner and its worked out alright. You'd have to find the image online, save it and upload it on the poster burner site. Image has to be very clear and the site will tell you how strong the image is for their printers. It shows From good to Excellent.

    http://www.posterburner.com/

    Also, for the collectors, this site does not produce the same quality as the originals and its obvious. So not much to worry about as far as purchasing fakes.

    Its such a simple and cool request.  Its a shame it has to be dramatized.  There’s just so many “i bought this poster. Is it fake?” posts that ive seen

    I don't think that collecting stuff should be "a hunt". It's weird to begin with. And so cliche. Limited edition items and shit feels so out of date.
    But agree with not buying bootlegs etc.

    Print them smaller and frame for cheap. Same feeling of nostalgia, obviously they are not real, and you save space on the wall to put up more.

    As an artist, I'd be lying if I said it wouldn't bother me if someone copied my work without asking permission. I've actually had a guy with a small home brew operation use my work on their label without asking me. I was pissed.

    part of the fun of collecting is the chase...the hunt.
    when stuff starts getting bootlegged, fanmade, copied, whatever..it ruins it. for the artist and the fan.  imagine 3 derivative owners from now of that illegal Pitt 13 poster on Facebook being debated not knowing its a fake or a phony and they dropped $500 on it or something.  Ruins the spirit of collecting from so many directions

    The difference is that in this case you can't go to the artist and say "I would like to pay for one of your posters to hang on my wall". It's a limited item pretty much exclusively available at the specific concert.

    It's not like buying a burnt DVD from some counterfeit market instead of buying it from Amazon.

    Just to play the devils advocate.

    Or buy a book from the artist and cut out that print.  Ames has a book, Sperry, Stout do too.

    Yes. I do not disagree with that.

    But I don't think things should be made "limited" just for the hell of doing it "limited" to begin with. In general. Don't see the benefits for fans. Not counting for the few who gets something out of this overpriced "hunt" you are talking about. But this is offtopic.

    Just don't like the idea of fans having to "hunt".

    I guess everyone has different definitions of fun.  Chasing down merch being sold wayyyy above face value is not fun.  At all.  

    Obviously bootlegging posters and selling them is not cool, but I don't see the harm in creating your own print to hang up for yourself.

    I agree that reproducing someone's artistic work without their permission is not cool; additionally, people reselling this same artwork way above face value is also slimey in my opinion. 

    Another rather obvious perspective is that many people/fans/10C members never want to see the day that Pearl Jam posters and other miscellaneous items start being mass produced due to the fact that this would reduce their materialistic sense of self-worth. What! I can no longer re-sell my $40 concert poster to a fellow fan for a ridiculous mark-up!  ..... I can't come to these boards to re-sell an artist's artwork, at prices that I would shame if the artists chose similar prices at their original point of sale!  Oh, the humanity ;)
