About the shipping of our current 999 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 $14 U.S. shipping rather than our standard $12 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 two-panel posters
     In this set of auctions, we offer a large quantity of Italian one- and two-panel posters. But we also offer some of these 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!

About 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. Shipping Details

U.S. buyers need to enclose $14 shipping (which includes full insurance), no matter how many items you purchase from this set of auctions! NOTE: Our $14 flat rate shipping is good for three weeks. If you haven't paid within three weeks after your oldest unshipped purchase, you will then be quoted the actual cost of shipping when you request it. Learn the exact details of flat rate shipping

Why $14 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 $14 (fourteen) 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.

     THE $14 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 "$14 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!

Do you need "signature required"?
UPS nor USPS automatically require a signature to deliver packages, so if you want the signature to be required, you will need to pay the extra $3.87 for UPS or $2.35 for USPS that they charge for "signature required", and please realize that they will then NOT leave the package at the door, and you may well have to go to the UPS or USPS facility yourself to pick it up if you aren't there to meet the delivery person. 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 in oversized flat packages so...
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT COMBINING: Flat rate shipping is good for 3 weeks worth of purchases (assuming all the items fit into a single package; Learn More About Combining). 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.

*they can be combined with these auctions:

Sunday May 24th single 8" x 10" stills
Sunday May 31st groups of 2+ stills from the same film
Tuesday June 2nd folded one-sheets
Sunday June 14th lobby cards and "flat" items in June Major Auction Part IV
Tuesday June 23rd folded one-sheets

*they must be sent separately from these auctions for an additional shipping charge:

Tuesday May 26th rolled non-U.S. posters
Thursday May 28th rolled one-sheets
Sunday June 7th linenbacked 1sheets in June Major Auction Part I
Tuesday June 9th linenbacked posters in June Major Auction Part II
Thursday June 11th rolled posters in June Major Auction Part III
Tuesday June 16th paperbacked and really oversized items in June Major Auction Part V (NOTE: A very few can safely be combined and we will do so automatically.)
Thursday June 18th rolled non-U.S. posters
Sunday June 21st rolled "special" posters of all kinds

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 (even if you get 100 or more, but solely from a single set!), but we also allow you to wait until the next three weeks of auctions end (a total of up to nine sets of auctions) so that you can combine your current purchases with those of our following auctions (if possible; see Learn More About Combining), and that means there is a chance you could combine items from up to nine 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; Learn More About Combining). Since around half of our auctions have items that ship in tubes and the other half have items that ship in flat packages, and since few of those items can be combined, most of our regular buyers end up with at least two packages after three weeks. We KNOW there are other sellers who charge a little less on shipping than we do (and of course, there are others who charge far more!), but none of the ones with lower rates offer the same generous flat rate shipping we do, and 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).


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 Program?
This lets non-U.S. buyers pay for their purchases from 6 consecutive weeks (a total of 18 auctions and around 15,000+ items!), and we then send all your purchases at once saving you LOTS of money!  Click HERE to learn more (if you are not one of the hundreds of our non-U.S. buyers who are already part of this program)

Here is a chart containing estimated shipping charges for up to 3 items from this set of  auctions
These are ESTIMATES only, and your actual shipping may be more or less than these estimates.
Insurance will increase the cost of shipping by approximately $1.60 for each $100 of insurance.

Type of Shipping Canada/Mexico Australian/Asia/Japan Everywhere Else (inc Europe)
Priority Mail Int'l - Uninsured $32.36 / $39.96 $47.08 $49.12
Priority Mail Express Int'l - Uninsured 44.17 / 49.37 55.83 56.27
First Class (under 4 lbs ONLY) 17.25 / 25.19 30.30 30.30

    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!


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 set of auctions will be sent in oversized flat packages, so you can add any Fixed Price item(s) that can also be sent in oversized flat packages 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 OR if it requires additional packages, then you will need to pay the difference). We have noted below whether items ship rolled, flat, or both.
