dennyschmickleSend dennyschmickle a message :   For once, I kind of see both sides of this argument. It seems silly to ignore new-media versions of gigpostsers.

fantasygoatSend fantasygoat a message :   Mike's analogy is crap - listening to MP3s vs. listening to CDs is not a big enough difference. I'd say it is more like listening to music on an AM radio in a 1971 Plymouth Fury vs. seeing a band live.
A printed poster, even an offset one, is a physical object you can interact with and experience with all your senses. A picture on a screen, no matter how awesome, will never be the same thing. Just look at all the comments like "You should see this in person!"

MaximumFluorideSend MaximumFluoride a message :   Probably a quote from me in regards to a poster I did with Drowning Creek. That would have been about 8 or 9 years ago. Times change. And I'm not saying, never have, and never will say that screen printed posters are not the top of the food chain. It's just time to add some new ideas to the definition of a gig advertisement. Because at the end of the day the basic function of the poster is the same as an e-poster. And that is to advertise a gig.   2009-12-13 16:05:35

"I just got these in the mail and I was indeed blown away. Holy crap!! The printing is so damn cool. Great job Jeff! The printed poster is 1000% cooler than the jpeg. They also printed HANDBILLS!!!! Oh shit. They are like trading cards for the poster world. and the smell... oh.. I love the smell of the inks... hehe sorry if I sound self absorbed but these are my first real printed posters in 5 years. I couldn't be happier."

AndymacSend Andymac a message :   It would be a pretty dull gigposters website if we all agreed on everything and every 'poster' was treated the same as Allen Jaeger's.
This thread has brought up a very valid point (which should maybe move over to the discussion threads and have Clay weigh in on), and it has nothing to do with the design or the designer (don't take it personally Nicholas) - it has to do with what is real and what is imagination, what is physical and what is digital. It's the difference between having a real girl in the room or a screen full of internet porn. It's the difference between looking at a print on here or holding it in your hands. If you think they are all one and the same....I think you missed something.

lil_tuffySend lil_tuffy a message :   Intent is meaningless. Quite simply, this site an archive dedictaed to gig posters. That means they exist in the physical world and served as a promotional piece or a merchandised commmodity (or both). If every "virtual" poster were submitted here this site qould quickly become useless. If I had my druthers, flyers and handbills and xeroxs -- bascially antything that is reporduced en masse et cetera would be separated from posters. Also, printing them after the fact does not suddenly make something "official."   2009-12-12 17:30:12

beecombs, at least push a button and print it out on an inkjet. It's not about etiquette, it's about what is real and what isn't. Show some ink, show some respect for the medium.

They are legit because they exist in the physical world beyond the 10101010101010101s of the computer/interweb.

AndymacSend Andymac a message :   Wait, if it's unprinted, it's just a design on a computer....not really a poster. So if you did a booth at flatstock, would you just have a computer and screen, and burn copies for $20 on a memory stick, or would you burn a disc? Print the fucking thing or it's not a real poster.   2009-12-12 10:43:55

squeegeethreeSend squeegeethree a message :   This is def an offset job but it would still come out looking different in cmyk. That's why I like to see these pics on paper.   2009-12-07 04:50:38
