Details About These Thursday Items
An important change to our flat rate shipping
Note that we have not raised our flat rate U.S. shipping since
April 2011, and though all shipping carriers (UPS, USPS, etc) have raised their rates several times
each year since then, we have kept our flat rates at early 2011 levels, but now that we are moving
into 2014 and there will be yet another series of rate increases by the carriers, we are increasing
our U.S. flat rate shipping by just $1, so beginning with this set of auctions, our U.S. flat rate
for tube shipping and standard flat packages will now be $12. This will not cover our cost to ship
most orders where people purchase many items from one set of auctions, but we want to keep our flat
rate shipping as a "thank you" to our customers. Remember that our flat rate shipping is good for as
many combinable items as you purchase during a three week time period!
About the rolled one-sheet posters
Note that most of the posters we are selling this week were
never folded. A very few of the posters were once folded (or partially folded, as in tri-folding),
but all of those have been stored flat for a long time and will be shipped rolled in tubes, along
with the completely unfolded ones. We will NOT re-fold any of the "formerly folded"
posters. WE ALWAYS IDENTIFY WHETHER A POSTER IS UNFOLDED, TRI-FOLDED,
OR FORMERLY FULLY FOLDED WITHIN THE DESCRIPTION FOR EACH ITEM!
About the originality of never folded one-sheets (commonly
referred to as "rolled" or "unfolded")
Many collectors would like to add posters from their favorite movies of
the 1970s onward to their collection, but they rightfully are afraid they will be sold commercial
posters (or reproductions or bootlegs), rather than actual posters either used in theaters or
intended for theater use. WHEN YOU BUY FROM US THIS WEEK, YOU HAVE A GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL BE
BUYING A GENUINE ORIGINAL MOVIE POSTER! This is because almost all of these posters come to us
either from theater owners, or from advanced collectors (often ones who purchased the posters right
when the movies first came out), people who know how to distinguish an original poster, and also, we
here at eMoviePoster very carefully scrutinize every poster to make 100% certain it is genuine! But
you don't have to take our word for it! If you purchase
any poster from this set of auctions, and you have the slightest doubts about its originality after
you receive it, it is fine for you to return it for a full refund within 7 days of receipt
(but we virtually never get even a single poster returned, because we reject any poster that is
consigned to us if we have the slightest doubts about it!).
About the condition
Normally when we sell movie paper, we grade the posters on a scale that allows for some defects
typical of 30 to 75-year-old movie posters that were actually used in theaters. Such posters often
have some minor wear at the very least, and it is next to impossible to find posters that have no
wear at all, and it would be silly to have a grading scale where no posters would qualify for "very
good to fine" (or better grades), so we use a more "relaxed" scale that allows for very minor
defects in our "very good to fine" grade.
But in this auction, we are
selling a fair number of posters from the past 20 years, and those posters can more often be found
in excellent condition, because there were dealers and collectors who purchased these posters
unused, and kept them in wonderful condition.
So for THIS
auction, we grade on a MUCH stricter scale than we do for our folded one-sheet auctions! We
downgrade posters to "very good to fine" for very minor defects (things like a single tiny tear in
the border, or faint creases in the edges). We further downgrade to "very good" posters that have
several of these types of defects, even though the poster would probably qualify as "fine", if it
was from the 1940s!
We use this "sliding scale" grading because it
allows us to better convey the poster's true condition to our buyers. If we used the exact same
scale for all posters, then most 1920s posters would be graded as "fair" or "poor", and most 1980s
or 1990s posters would be graded as "fine", and we realize that that benefits nobody!
In this auction, we have given a more detailed overall condition grade ("fine", "very good to fine",
"very good", "good to very good", "good", and "fair", with only a few "poor") for each poster. 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.
Know that we generally grade FAR more harshly than any other dealer we know! A 1990s poster
that we grade as "good" or "good to very good" may well be one that many collectors could display on
their wall just as it is, and may well be one that many other dealers would grade as "very good". So
please don't reject a poster because it has a grade of "good" or "good to very good". Please study
our supersized image and see if the defects are the sort that you can accept.
U.S. Shipping Details
U.S. buyers need to enclose $12 shipping (which includes full
insurance), no matter how many items you purchase from this set of auctions! NOTE: Our $12 flat
rate shipping is good for three weeks. If you haven't paid within three weeks, you will then be
quoted the actual cost of shipping
when you request it.
NOTE: We have increased our flat rate shipping by $1.
See above for more details.
customers: You must pay an additional 7.162% sales tax on your
purchases. If your order is sent within the state of Missouri, we MUST
collect this tax (if it is shipped to another state, we do not collect the tax).
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 $3.00 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 Thursday items need to be sent rolled in tubes so...
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT COMBINING: Flat rate shipping is good for 3 weeks worth of
purchases. If you win items over a span of more than 21 days, you will then be charged the
actual cost of shipping plus $3 for packing materials.

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 three weeks of auctions end (a total of up to eight 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 eight of our sets of auctions, and still pay only a single shipping charge (assuming those items fit into the same type of package,
but of course, there is a limit to how many items can fit in a single package or tube, and if
you end up with several packages, you will need to pay that many shipping charges). 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 $12 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 both the best packaging materials you have ever seen
and a separate printed invoice mailed to you.
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.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: 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 damaged order.
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!
Do you have a friend or relative who lives in the
Some of our customers either
visit the U.S. regularly, or have friends or relatives within the U.S., and
often those customers have us send their orders to a U.S. address, and then
they transport the posters from there. THIS CAN SAVE YOU A GREAT DEAL ON
SHIPPING! This is fine with us, but realize that you still need to let
us know within one week of receipt if you want to return anything, so don't
use this method unless you are certain you will want to keep your purchases.
DON'T BID ON OUR ITEMS UNLESS YOU WILL PAY THE ACTUAL COST OF SHIPPING (plus $3 outside the U.S.)!
Add More to Your Order
In addition to our current auctions, we
offer many other non-auction items. Please note that the items in this set
of auctions will be sent rolled in tubes, so
you can add any item that can also be sent rolled
in tubes for little or no additional shipping costs (NOTE:
if we can add it to your package without raising the cost of shipping, then
we will do so with no added shipping charge, but if it raises the cost then
you will need to pay the difference). We have noted below whether the items can be shipped rolled or not.
