I’m very excited to announce that prints are finally available to purchase! After ordering many samples from companies around the world I picked society6 to produce and ship the prints. society6 is a print-on-demand service based in the United States that produce gorgeous, gallery-quality prints and other products on behalf of independent artists and ship them anywhere in the world.

ENOUGH TALK, TAKE ME TO THE SHOP!




As you can see, I’ve had to rearrange most of them to a more printer-friendly size.

The quality of these prints are excellent – they’re digitally printed on thick, textured, archival paper and they look awesome. I squealed like a school-girl when I unwrapped the Einstein print. Trust me, I wouldn’t sell anything I wouldn’t hang on my own wall.

You can order different sizes, from a mini (7″x10″, $17USD) right up to an extra large gallery size (26″x40″, $60USD). Prices vary accordingly, so you should find a version to suit your budget. If you want to get all fancy, you can even order a framed version. (The Einstein print above is the LARGE gallery size with the scooped-black frame). If you want to get really really fancy, you can order your favourite comic as a stretched canvas (here’s a society6 video showing how they produce a stretched canvas).

All of my comics are NOT available as prints. Since some of the quotes are copyrighted material (like the Litany Against Fear) I would need to get permission first. I’ve tried to contact the Dune people a few times but still haven’t got a reply. For other copyrighted quotes, I’ve decided to donate some of the profits to a charity associated with the author. Dean Karnazes is a star for giving me permission to sell his comic. Also, I’ve only made what I think are the most popular quotes available. Send me an email or leave a comment if the quote you want isn’t available.

Of course in an ideal world I would get the prints made and ship them myself, but there’s no possible way I could organise printing, packing and shipping on my own. Using a print-on-demand service frees me up to do what I do best, draw comics.

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, PLEASE STOP TALKING. I JUST WANT TO BUY A PRINT ALREADY!

Just a few things I want to make sure you’re informed of:
– Prints are shipped from the United States. Unfortunately, international orders do not have tracking and can take between 2-3 weeks to arrive.
– Prices are in USD and DON’T include shipping cost.
– Prints are shipped rolled in very sturdy cardboard tubes. They won’t be damaged in transit.
– If you’re ordering one of the long-form, mutli-panelled quotes please be aware that the words will be quite small if you get the mini size. Just something to consider, I’m not trying to trick you into buying a bigger size (well, maybe a little).
– I’ve added ‘BUY THE PRINT’ buttons underneath comics that are available at the moment.

If you experience any problems that are not addressed in society6’s FAQ, please let me know and I will contact them on your behalf.

Ok, that’s enough talking. This is my first foray into monetization and I’m a bit nervous. I’ll let you know how it goes!

Thanks everyone.
