    FS: E500E Factory Fire & Silk Posters + more!

    Hi All,

    OK so for those who may have missed this thread, here is the formal thread offering super quality classic Mercedes Poster prints for Board members!

    I have several large format HP Designjet plotters (4x now) I only use genuine HP Inks, printheads and Media. Many large format printing shops will use CIS bulk Inks for huge savings for example - but they will not last the fade quality that genuine HP inks have for example. To put this into perspective one set of genuine spare inks for one of my machines is over $1200! Therefore like most things in life, you get what you pay for. Using genuine inks etc prolongs the life of the machines and produces highest quality prints which will last for many, many years without fading. (200 years anti fade is what HP Say ) Gloss HP photo media is what I am using until further notice due to it’s superb appearance. I did also try a Pearl Satin media and didn’t really like the appearance of the print and it’s fragile nature which can be marked with the oil in your skin even. The gloss finish looks great and it quite robust. (Note for interior use only)

    2no sizes of posters are available. These are A2 Size and A1 Size:


    A1 594 x 841 mm 23.4 x 33.1 in
    A2 420 x 594 mm 16.5 x 23.4 in

    Note that my advice is the larger the print the bigger strain on the original image to produce sharp results. In most instances A2 is more than suffice and gives best results IMO

    Current pricing is as follows:

    A2 Posters:
    1 x poster = £26GBP + Postage
    2x posters = £44GBP + Postage (£22 per Poster)
    3x posters = £58.50GBP + Potage (£19.50 per poster)

    £19.50 Per poster is the max discount for A2 sized prints

    A1 Posters:
    1 x poster = £44GBP + Postage
    2x posters = £76GBP + Postage (£38 per Poster)
    3x posters = £97.50GBP + Potage (£34.00 per poster)

    £34.00 Per poster is the max discount for A1 sized prints


    Current selection is numbered as follows:

    Dec 18 Posters Revision A.jpg


    Note that this selection will be expanding when I have more time. Also – I am working on the fabled “Feuer & Seide” factory 500E poster to create a higher quality English “Fire & Silk” version which is a total start from scratch remake and will take some weeks before it is available.

    If you want a large format poster of your own car – I can do that too if you provide a suitable quality image for me to use. Which will NOT be re-produced without your full consent.

    All posters will be sent using international singed for priorty mail service. For example the cost to send a new 3 inch poster tube to USA is coming in at just £12 GBP currently (Including a new 3 inch postage tube). Purchases over 6no posters will also benefit from free shipping to most destinations. (UK – USA – Europe)

    20181203_191722.jpg


    Posters are individually plotted off to order! So after an order is placed and paid for via Paypal’s “As a friend option” I will prepare the poster(s) within a few days at most and inform you when it has shipped.

    Postage costs per country: (To expand as & when I am asked)

    Postage to USA using International Tracked and Signed for service £12 (5 – 7 working days delivery aim – includes up to £50 compensation for loss or damage)
    Postage to Germany using International Tracked and Signed for service £10 (3 – 5 working days delivery aim – includes up to £50 compensation for loss or damage)
    Postage within UK using first class signed for service: £7.50 (1-2 working days – includes up to £50 compensation for loss or damage)

    If anyone is interested in ordering posters please PM me! I hope members who start receiving their posters can also provide feedback

    These are ready to mount with simple Blu Tack – no need to frame due to the high quality of finish (IMHO)

    Re: FS: New E500E / W124 Poster prints for board members!

    Further to a PM question, to clarify since all posters are made to order – there is no extra charge to do your own photo of your car. (The image must be of sufficient quality eg: minimum 1.5mb in size and 3600 x 2400 pixels – larger the better!)

    The very first poster for a board member – printed, trimmed and will be shipped out tomorrow

    20181203_223031.jpg

    To all members – I only handle the new posters with cotton gloves. This is to ensure you do not receive a poster with finger prints and such.

    However – please do take care when handling your new poster(s) and removing it from the shipping tube. I advise that upon receipt of your postal tube you should immediately carefully remove the poster and allow to flatten back overnight. Also – try not to pinch or buckle the poster when handling it. Not the end of the world but best avoided! It is decent weight media (200g/m2) but could still be damaged by improper handling

    Watch out for those HP products. I had a succession of four HP printers over the years. Terrible.

    Finally switched over to Epson. Couldn’t be happier.

    A lot of HP products are the URO of the computer world now.

    It depends on the product line. The lower-end stuff, yeah, keep your expectations low. The joke is that the ink is worth more than the printer for the entry-level stuff.

    The higher-end products, both for computing and printing, are generally good quality - but you'll pay for it. Kinda like, you know, Mercedes-Benz.

    I believe Joe's DesignJet Z3100ps is a several-thousand-dollar unit.

    Don’t be so defensive, GSXR!! I once worked out that HP inkjet printer ink costs more than $10,000 per gallon.

    As far as I know, the most expensive commercially available fluid on the planet.

    I remember hearing that a railroad tanker filled with HP ink was valued around several hundred million dollars... or so the story goes.

    Didn't Markie tell you about this over drinks after work back in the day?

    These Designjet machines are entirely different than A4 home printers Gerry........ not even comparable in the slightest!

    All accurate stuff Gixer! The Z3100ps was a £6800 GBP machine new. I also have a Z5200ps coming now in a couple of days looking forward to trying it out too

    It takes 8x 300ml inks should be a little more economical to run.... time will tell

    I know. I was just yoinking GSXR because of his employer. I worked for a while at the site where these large format machines and the desktop printers were engineered and marketed. I get it

    Re: FS: New E500E / W124 Poster prints for board members!

    May I present the JC220 reincarnation of the factory poster – closely following the original 500E “Fire & Silk” Brochure themes. On the same high quality photo gloss and as high a quality print as is possible with an original Daimler image.

    20181209_181342.jpg 20181209_163807.jpg 20181209_175212.jpg

    Currently available in English, German and Russian languages. (More languages available on request!) These are now available in the same sizing and pricing as post number 1 above. A2 sizes are good to go now – A1 will be later this week as I am using the Z5200 for that with a larger roll of media still coming by courier. PM if interested!

    I have the very first one from print pinned up in the garage in front of my 500E this evening
