I don’t know how, but somehow we’re going to lose money on this poster. It’s just my fate.
So after selling out of our first run of “The Family Tree of Chairs” letterpress poster, we said we might do a second run in green ink if we had enough interest. Y’all spoke up, so we placed an order for 200 posters in green.
There was some miscommunication at the press, and they used black ink and shipped those 200 to us. I refuse to pulp these gorgeous posters because they are the wrong ink, so starting today we are selling them in our store. They are $33, individually numbered by Megan and are ready to be shipped from our warehouse in Indiana. You can place an order here.
The printer insisted on doing the job correctly (thanks Boxcar!), and so next week will also have this poster in green ink. It will be the same price. And also numbered by Megan. So if you want a green one, just sit on your hands for a few days.
In other news, we asked our retailers if they wanted to carry the poster. Classic Hand Tools in the UK said yes! It will take some time to get them shipped across the Atlantic, so stay tuned if you are overseas.

I would just like to say please get these over to Dictum. Post Brexit shipping from the UK is a NIGHTMARE and you might not be aware but after the sterling, shipping and additional duties imposed by both UK and Europe (of which they are no longer a part) it just makes it untenable.
We asked all our retailers if they wanted to carry the posters. We can’t make them carry something they don’t want, I’m afraid.
I like the black. If you post a video of the press running, I’ll buy one.
“Never give the press operator a chance to screw up”. I was told thirty some years ago. They’re not stupid – they’re just paying attention to about twenty seven things at once.
Really appreciate you getting a second run of these. Just ordered mine.
