Similar thing with Tibetan Tankas. True fact. They always put a mistake in so as not to assume to be perfect.

Casey BurnsSend Casey Burns a message :   hmmm, i haven't read all these comments, but from the last two, i would just like to add that ... these are posters. many of my posters have smudges, bent corners, and other freaks of handprinting. the whole process is so tactile, that when i see a "perfectly printed" screenprint or letterpress piece, it just leaves me cold. bring on the humanity and human "error", if you want to call it that.   2006-09-09 13:43:17

MrBlonde7Send MrBlonde7 a message :   I appreciate the reply, Dirk.
I don't feel like I was cheated. Like I said before, I love this idea, and that's why I bought the poster. I guess my discriminating eye looks for different things than yours when all is said and done. Haven't seen any others in the edition, so I don't know what i'm missing out on in a 'bigger picture' sort of sense, but I am happy with my print.
I can see how my statement would seem unfair, being that it was said from an ignorant point of view. So, being that this 'discussion' has sprurned me into action, and i've learned that letterpress is no easy feat, as well as the fact that you don't look for exactness the same way I do, I'll rescind what I said.

Dirk FowlerSend Dirk Fowler a message :   Geez.
Mr. Blonde, I believe you have the right to say ANYTHING YOU WANT about it. But, if you were unhappy with the quality, you should have just told me. I would (and will) gladly replace it. I've done that for folks before.
I'm just not usually concerned with smudges, misregister, etc. Not that I don't care about quality, I'm just not really thinking about the collector when I am printing. I'm not sure "flawed execution" is a fair statement, but, sorry if you feel you got cheated.

MrBlonde7Send MrBlonde7 a message :   I took the time to look at Letterpress description on Dirk's site, and can appreciate the trouble and time spent on the prints he makes.
That being said, it's difficult to keep in mind that I can raise (what I believe to be) a valid point and still have to worry about getting jumped all over by designer after designer. I do not know the trade, and part of why I am a part of this site is my desire to learn more about design, print, and the subtleties. If this is a place that wants to help foster talent and inspire budding young artists, I suggest that a different approach be made.
Or maybe I should just stop crying in my tea.
You guys are all assholes, but that's part of the charm here.

Bob CaruthersSend Bob Caruthers a message :   The only time registration should become an issue is when it supposed to be in register and it is not. In Dirk's case, accurate registration is of no importance (as it should be). The miracle of Dirk's work is that the registration is as close as it is considering the equipment he works with. Besides, perfect concepts trump perfect registration every time. Keep them coming, Dirk!   2006-09-09 07:34:20
8ballSend 8ball a message :   Mr Blonde does bring up a great point...he saw it from a fan point of view...he didn't know the effort involved...and he basically called it as he saw it.
..what's the problem? While other poster geeks might "get it", he wants to know what makes it special.
What's wrong with questioning "art" and it's delivery?

Dirk, maybe you should start using crosshairs, we find it makes printing so much more efficient.
Good luck in the future. HAH!

Dirk FowlerSend Dirk Fowler a message :   Mr. Blonde, sorry for the "flawed" execution. If you saw the way I print, you'd think it is amazing I can get that close with registration.
If I get within 1/2 an inch I consider it "perfect".
Registration is overrated.
