Incredible Bonus Offer!


"Crazy Bruce Hershenson" says, "I have been a supporter of Movie Collectors World for 20 years non-stop (I have a full-color ad on the back cover of every issue), and I KNOW that it provides invaluable help for every movie paper collector! I want everyone to see an issue of this magazine, so that those of you who don't subscribe will know what you are missing!" Therefore we offer every one of our buyers this week a back issue of Movie Collectors World as a bonus (we will give different issues randomly to each buyer, NOT the one pictured)!

If you are a movie paper collector, and aren't familiar with Movie Collectors World, we think there is a wonderful chance you will become a subscriber once you see just one issue!
Special Notes About This Tuesday's Items

About The Shipping of Our Current 896 Items
     All of the posters we are currently auctioning are "oversized", meaning that most of them can't be sent in our regular standard-sized flat mailers (and NONE of them can be rolled in a tube). There are possibly a few exceptions (see our shipping section below). This means you mostly will have to pay slightly greater than normal shipping (especially if you live outside the U.S., as the U.S. Post Office has increased their rates), but we try to offset that by giving you a bonus example of Movie Collectors World magazine for NO additional charge, and by only charging ONE extra dollar over our regular U.S. shipping rate!

About "Oversized" 3-sheet & 6-sheet U.S. Posters (three-sheets which measure 41" x 81" & six-sheets which measure 81" x 81")
     This week we are auctioning a very large number of three-sheet and six-sheet 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 three-sheets and and six-sheets 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 THREE-SHEETS AND SIX-SHEETS 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 three-sheets and six-sheets 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!

About Our Digital Images of Posters Printed in 2 or More Pieces, and of Larger Posters
     Most of the three-sheets and six-sheets we are offering this week 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 in a single piece, and six-sheets 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.

Payment Options
We accept all major credit cards, either directly over the phone at 417-256-9616 during our regular business hours which are Monday to Friday, 9 AM CST to 5 PM CST except between 12 and 1 when we take lunch, or you can e-mail us payment details, and there are still a few people who fax us!

If you like to pay via Paypal
(our PayPal e-mail is "mail@emovieposter.com"), that is fine, but know that PayPal has many glitches, and you should ABSOLUTELY e-mail us separately when you send us a PayPal payment!

You can send a check or money order (if you do, enclose your address and details about what you purchased) to:
Bruce Hershenson
Attn: Payments
P.O. Box 874
West Plains, MO 65775

If it is your best payment option, you can pay by Western Union (unlike SOME auction sites, we are not prejudiced against Western Union!).  But please don't send cash (as we can't be responsible for lost cash)!

U.S. Shipping Details

As a special offer to our customers, U.S. buyers need to enclose $10 shipping no matter how many items you win!

Why $10 shipping this week?

     This week only (because we are selling "oversized" posters which do not fit in our standard mailers, and will need to be sent in large oversized mailers, or between six heavy pieces of large cardboard), all U.S. buyers must pay a total of $10 (ten) 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.

A few of the posters this week are not oversized!
Note that a few of the posters we are selling this week are not technically "oversized", because they can be folded down to a size that fits in our standard mailers. But there are relatively few of these, and since we only now charge $1 extra for U.S. shipping ($10 versus $9), we don't want to fold those items (thus reinforcing creases that have been greatly diminished) to save $1, so ALL U.S. buyers will pay $10 shipping on items from this set of auctions!

In fact, when we sold these sizes of posters on eBay in the past, we charged $13 for U.S. shipping, but we are making this special "$10 U.S. shipping" offer this week, as a special discount to our buyers in our auctions on our own site, even though this means we will lose money on shipping virtually every U.S. package!

NEW! 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: This week's Tuesday items must be sent in "oversized" flat packages and they can NOT be combined with the half-sheets, Japanese posters, inserts, or Italian locandinas we are selling on 1/6 & 1/8 because those items but be sent rolled in tubes, but CAN be combined with the stills we will be selling 1/8 to 1/15)
     Note that we not only allow you to combine as many items as you want from a single week, and still pay only a single shipping charge for all of the items, but we also allow you to wait until next week's auctions end so that you can combine your current purchases with those of our following auctions (if possible), and since we do two sets of auctions every week, that means there is a chance you could combine items from up to four 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 $10 U.S. SHIPPING CHARGE).


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 $2 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.

A few of the posters this week are not oversized!
Note that a few of the posters we are selling this week are not technically "oversized", because they can be folded down to a size that fits in our standard mailers. But there are relatively few of these, and since we only now charge $1 extra for U.S. shipping ($10 versus $9), we don't want to fold those items (thus reinforcing creases that have been greatly diminished) to save $1! The only exception to this is when one of these posters is purchased by someone from outside the U.S., because the difference between sending a standard sized package and an oversized package can be $15 or $20.
     But since there are not many of these posters, we will leave it up to our non-U.S. buyers to let us know (if they solely purchased one poster) if they would prefer their item to be packaged in a standard mailer to save money on shipping (but they would then not get the free Masterprints, and of course many of the posters CAN'T be sent in a standard mailer without damaging them).

Here is a chart containing estimated shipping charges for up to 3 items from this week's auctions
(Note: Insured quotes are based on a $200 value; you pay $1.60 more for each additional $100 of insurance)

Type of Shipping Canada/Mexico Australian/Asia/Japan Everywhere Else (inc Europe)
Airmail - Uninsured $23.20 / $28.75 $38.00 $36.00
Airmail - Insured 25.10 / N/A 41.20 39.20
Global Express - Insured 40.90 / N/A 45.95 47.95
Global Express - Uninsured 39.00 / 41.00 43.25 45.25
First Class N/A N/A N/A

Do you have a friend or relative who lives in the United States? 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 (the actual cost of shipping plus $2 outside the U.S.)!

IMPORTANT! WE ARE GIVING A SAMPLE ISSUE OF MOVIE COLLECTORS WORLD TO ALL BUYERS OF OUR AUCTIONS ENDING TUESDAY 1/13, as both a way to encourage bidders to participate in our auctions on our own site and a way to offset the higher cost of shipping these "oversized" items (we believe the bonus item is worth the cost of shipping)! However please note that for non-U.S. buyers, we will include the Movie Collectors World, but there is a slight chance that they will up the shipping weight to the next level, and cause added shipping, so if you are from outside the U.S. and DON'T want the Movie Collectors World, let us know and we WON'T include it. We won't be making a single cent on shipping (unlike many major auction houses which charge OUTRAGEOUS inflated shipping charges). We just want to get back our actual cost of shipping and packaging materials.

You Can 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 week's auction will mostly be sent rolled in tubes, so you can add any item that can easily be rolled for no additional shipping costs. We have noted in each paragraph below whether the items can be shipped rolled or not.

Fixed Price Posters (most can be shipped rolled but not all can be sent flat; if an item has a "UF" or "TF" in the description, it can only be shipped rolled, but if it has a "FF" in the description, it can likely be sent rolled or flat; please check with us if you are unsure)
