About the shipping of our current 886 items
All of the posters we are currently auctioning are "somewhat oversized", meaning that
almost all of them can't be sent in our regular standard-sized flat mailers (and NONE
of them can be rolled in a tube). This means you will have to pay $13 U.S.
shipping rather than our standard $11 U.S. shipping, because the packages are
larger and cost us at least $2 more to send. If you live outside the U.S., the
rates will surely be higher than our standard sized packages, and maybe quite a
bit more, depending on how many posters you purchase.
About the Italian one- and
In this set of auctions, we offer a large quantity of Italian one- and
two-panel posters. But we also offer those two sizes when we auction "very
oversized posters" (like window cards). What is the difference? In this set
of auctions, ALL of the Italian one- and two-panel posters have been
folded over "an extra time", which means they are close in size (when
folded) to U.S. three-sheets and six-sheets. When we are consigned Italian
one- and two-panel posters that have NOT been folded "an extra time",
we auction them with window cards and other "very oversized" posters, which
need to go in much larger flat packages.
About "somewhat oversized" posters
In this set of auctions, we are auctioning a very large number of
"somewhat oversized" posters, including some very scarce titles, some of which may never have been at auction before. Most of the posters we are selling were actually used in a theater (all were printed intended for theater-use, but some never made it out of the poster exchange that distributed them,
and on the few that appear to have been never used, we clearly note that in
the item's condition), and they have defects typical with those acquired by a poster that has been attached to a wall and then taken down again. Some of the posters were used in theaters in other parts of the world, and some of those have "censor stamps" on them (but, unlike one-sheets with censor stamps, most
oversized posters with censor stamps are stamped in unobtrusive places, often in the blank background areas; in addition, sometimes the censor stamps are relatively very small on these larger posters and are much less noticeable than they would be on one-sheets). MOST COLLECTORS OF
THESE POSTERS ARE ACCEPTING OF THE DEFECTS THAT THEATER-USED LARGER POSTERS ACQUIRE, BUT IF YOU ARE NOT, THEN YOU SHOULD NOT BID ON THESE POSTERS
(unless they are one of the ones we marked as having been never used). Most collectors of
oversized posters have them linenbacked and restored prior to displaying them, and they know that most of the defects theater-used posters acquire can be fairly easily restored during the linenbacking process. If you are like most collectors, and can accept the defects that most of these posters have (which WERE acquired during actual theater use!) then we think you will be very happy to have this rare opportunity to select from such a huge number of rarely seen larger U.S. posters!
our digital images of posters printed in 2 or more pieces, and of larger posters
Some of the items we are offering in this set of auctions are printed in 2 or more pieces (because
they were made before printers had the ability to print such large posters in one piece, so they were normally printed in two
or four pieces; in the late 1970s, printers began printing three-sheets and
some other larger posters in a
single piece, and six-sheets and some other very large posters in two pieces). To give you the best possible idea of what the poster will look like when the pieces are combined, as intended, we photograph each piece separately and then digitally "join" the images to show you what the entire poster looks like (when there are multiple pieces, they are printed with extra blank borders designed to overlap, so that the pieces can be combined to have a perfect "fit"). BUT THE DOWNSIDE TO PHOTOGRAPHING THE INDIVIDUAL SECTIONS BY THEMSELVES IS THAT THE LIGHTING IS NOT EXACTLY THE SAME WHEN WE PHOTOGRAPH EACH PIECE SEPARATELY. Often this leads to one part of the poster appearing darker (or lighter) than the rest of the poster. THIS IS DUE SOLELY TO THE LIGHTING AND DOES NOT MEAN ONE PIECE IS "DARKER" THAN ANOTHER! If one of our posters ACTUALLY has significantly different coloring from one piece to another, we SURELY note that in words. This same "lighter" and "darker" issue can occur in single piece posters, if they are very large (like three-sheets that are printed in a single piece), because the poster is so large that the lighting may vary from one area of the poster to another. But know that any color difference from one section of a poster to another, or from one portion of the poster to another, is purely due to photography and is NOT on the actual poster, and when you see the poster in person, you will see that this is correct!
About the condition
Note that we give a detailed overall condition grade to every item we sell ("fine", "very good to fine", "very good", "good to very good", "good", and
only a few less than "good") along with more details about the condition described in words (but pretty much
a general description of the defects, and we only describe specific defects if they are
the type that CAN'T be seen in our super-sized images, or if the item is especially valuable). We felt this would help bidders identify items they want to bid on more easily. Of course, we still strongly recommend that you look at our super-sized image to see the extent of the defects that we describe and to examine the poster for minor defects that we did NOT describe.
U.S. orders with flat rate shipping can quickly be completed via Credit/Debit Card or PayPal
Checkout system. For U.S. customers who purchase items that require "actual
shipping" (and for ALL Non-U.S. orders) we need to quote you the cost of shipping (a "shipping
quote") after you request it,
and you will do so (after the auctions end) through our
NEW! We have integrated most shipping quotes into our
checkout (except for Pay and Hold orders because they are more complicated, but those are coming
too) so you now can complete payment using our checkout (for both U.S. and non-U.S. orders, but
for now, only if you pay with credit card or PayPal).
Please note that we are still developing this checkout system, and we will continue to make
further improvements to it, and all aspects of our business, and we will alert you whenever we
make such improvements. If you run into any sort of problem requesting your quotes or paying for
your order after you receive your quotes, please e-mail
right away so we can get it addressed.
If your order requires a shipping quote and you have already received your quote, you
may pay in our Checkout (unless your order is "Pay and Hold" which we are
working to account for). You should only pay via PayPal manually if you are Pay and Hold (to "email@example.com"), but know that PayPal has
many glitches, and if you do that, you need to e-mail us separately stating that you completed
payment Learn More.

U.S. Shipping Details
U.S. buyers need to enclose $13 shipping (which includes full
insurance), no matter how many items you purchase from this set of auctions! NOTE: Our $13 flat
rate shipping is good for two weeks. If you haven't paid within two weeks, you will then be
quoted the actual cost of shipping
when you request it.
Why $13 shipping in this set of auctions?
In this set of auctions only (because we are selling
"somewhat oversized" posters which do not fit in our standard mailers, and will need
to be sent in oversized mailers, or between six heavy pieces of large
cardboard), all U.S. buyers must pay a total of $13 (thirteen) shipping, whether
you buy 1 item or 100 (or any number in-between). Note that we FULLY
INSURE EVERY U.S. order we send! We will spend the shipping collected on
virtually all orders, and we spend far more on those that involve lots of
items and high dollar items.
WE ARE NOT TRYING TO MAKE MONEY ON SHIPPING!
THE $13 LIKELY WILL NOT COVER OUR COST OF SHIPPING
FOR MOST U.S. ORDERS (especially ones that include lots of posters), but we are keeping this special "$13 U.S.
shipping" rate in this set of auctions, as a special discount to our buyers of
multiple items in our auctions, even though this means we will lose money on shipping
a high percentage of U.S. packages!
Will your order be
shipped to you by UPS?
UPS does NOT automatically require a signature
to deliver packages, so if you want the signature to be required, you will
need to pay the extra $2.50 UPS charges for "signature required" Delivery
Confirmation, and please realize that they will then NOT leave the
package, and you may well have to go to the UPS facility yourself to pick it
up. But if you prefer this, that is fine, and if you have any other
special requirements, please tell us when you are paying for your order.
IF YOU DO NOT SPECIFY THAT YOU WANT SIGNATURE REQUIRED, THEN YOUR PACKAGE
WILL BE SENT WITHOUT SIGNATURE REQUIRED!
You CAN usually combine shipment!
NOTE: These Tuesday
items need to be sent in oversized flat packages so...
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT COMBINING: Flat rate shipping is good for 2 weeks worth of
purchases. If you win items over a span of more than 14 days, you will then be charged the
actual cost of shipping plus $3 for packing materials.
*they can be combined with these auctions:
Tuesday October 2nd folded one-sheets
Thursday October 4th single lobby cards
Sunday October 7th miscellaneous items
Tuesday October 16th complete and incomplete lobby card sets
October 23rd folded one-sheets
Thursday October 25th lots of 2+ 8" x 10" stills from the same title
*they must be sent separately from these auctions for an
additional shipping charge:
Tuesday October 9th half-sheets and Japanese B2s
Thursday October 11th inserts, Belgians, and Italian locandinas
Thursday October 18th "special" rolled posters of all types
Sunday October 21st rolled one-sheets
Sunday October 28th bulk lots
Thursday November 1st rolled items in Part I of our Halloween
Note that we not only allow you to combine as many items as you want from a single
set of Tuesday, Thursday, and/or Sunday auctions, and still pay only a single shipping charge for all of the items, but we also allow you to wait until
the next five sets of auctions end (a total of six sets of auctions) so that you can combine your current purchases with those of our following auctions
(if possible), and that means there
is a chance you could combine items from up to six of our sets of auctions, and still pay only a single shipping charge (assuming those items fit into the same type of package). We KNOW there are other sellers who charge a little less on shipping than we do, but we know that our packaging is the best there is, and our orders virtually never arrive damaged (and on the very rare times that they do, all our U.S. packages are fully insured, and
FULL INSURANCE IS INCLUDED IN THE U.S. SHIPPING CHARGE).
DON'T BID ON OUR ITEMS
UNLESS YOU WILL PAY THE $13 U.S. SHIPPING!
Non-U.S. Shipping Details
Non-U.S. buyers must pay the actual cost of
shipping their order (you can choose whatever method you prefer, but
know that the U.S. Post Office has eliminated Surface Mail, so we can only
send via Express or Airmail), plus $3 for the best packaging materials you
have ever seen. All non-U.S. buyers must tell us if they want the
package sent insured or uninsured at the time they pay for their order.
Have you heard about our Pay and Hold
This lets non-U.S. buyers pay for their purchases from 4 consecutive weeks
(a total of 12 auctions and around 8,000+ items!), and we then send all your
purchases at once saving you LOTS of money! Click

Please bear these approximate shipping cost in mind BEFORE you place
a bid (if you live outside the U.S.). The vast majority of our customers
want a very securely packed tube, and will pay the extra shipping cost
involved (and of course, it goes to the Post Office or UPS, and not us!).
Please do not ask us to pack less securely, as that would likely result in a
Some sellers are sending by Ground UPS to Canada, but that incurs large
"brokerage fees", so we do not recommend it. Note that there are also
some sellers sending non-U.S. packages via a "Letter" rate, but of course
this is not legal, and we can not do this. We have outlined the
possibilities for sending non-U.S. packages above, so please read that
carefully, BEFORE placing a bid!
