Default Solberg Limited Edition Print group buy interest??



Just putting this out there for the VIC members to see if there is any interest. I was wondering if you guys were interested in a group buy of a limited edition Petter Solberg 2003 Rally of GB print. Since shipping one print costs the same as shipping 6 or so, we could save some money. The above picture is in my apartment, I had it professionally matted and framed, and it looks awesome. Keep in mind that this buy does not include the matting or the picture frame, just the print. I have 3 prints from this artist, Jeff Norton. He is a really cool guy from England and is really into racing. He does sell his prints on eBay, his username is jnpaint if you want to look him up. He also has a website listed below.

Here is a description of this print.

'On top of the world' a limited edition art print depicting Petter Solberg in his Subaru Impreza WRC2003 on the 2003 Wales Rally GB. His dominant win clinching his first World Rally Championship. The print measures approx 50 cm. by 37 cm. and is signed and numbered by the artist, Jeff Norton member of the guild of motoring artists, in pencil on the 1.5 cm white border.

http://www.motorart.co.uk/gallery_jeff_norton.html

Basically, each 37cm by 50 cm Solberg Print will cost about $35. He has other rally prints too, including a 1994 McRae Subaru Print, and others.
I could post pics of other prints he sells if there is interest. They are a cool piece of memorabilia to own, and they look good hanging up.
What do you guys think?

Chris

Is that a custom size print? I hate how it costs so much for a good frame. Otherwise I'd be on it!

the McRae print is 23.25" by 16.6", and I just put mine into a $10 clip frame from IKEA, as you can see in the above pic. From my experiences, its easy to find cheap frames, at flea markets or value village, but the expensive part is paying to get a frame shop to cut a custom mat to match the print and the frame size., like in my Solberg picture above. That cost me $30. I still think its worthwhile to get these limited edition prints, they are way better than having car posters in your room

ttt

Just to give you an idea of how much his prints normally sell for, Jeff advertises the same Solberg print on Scoobynet for 22 GPB plus shipping, which is about $50 CDN + shipping.

http://shop.scoobynet.co.uk/Product.asp?ProductID=1005

If we get 6-10 guys interested, it should be around $35 including shipping.
I guess I should also mention that I'm not making any money on this, the cost is the exact cost of the print plus a portion of shipping.

Chris

PS these prints add 5 WHP

Maybe it is just me but that Solberg drawing is pretty *****ty to me. If this guys is a professional artisist, well he is not that good. I've had friends in high school that draw better than that. The perspective is all wrong. Look at the front right fender, too open.
The McRae print is better though.

I dont think u are referring to this, but the white spot on that fender is the camera flash. I'll agree, but the pics don't do it justice, it looks a lot better in real life. Jeff Norton is a distinguished motorsports artist, he is an associate member of the Guild of Motoring artists, which is not easy to get into by any means, with only a few dozen members worldwide. I'm not going to argue with you, we are all entitled to our opinions.

Chris

Grimbeaver, I think its just you, but I can email if you are truly interested. Shoot me a pm

Ken, Imprezaboi, Aspect, and Deft if you are still interested the cost would be $37 CAD including shipping. Even with 6 people buying prints, the cost for each person would be $36 CAD, so not a huge savings I guess. Let me know if you guys are still interested. Buying a print individually would cost each person about $48

Grimbeaver, does the bigger version of the evo print show up?

Chris

Grimbeaver: I don't think there is any rush, I was going to give it about 2 weeks just to make sure everyone has a chance to see the pics and decide if they want one or not. How about I make the cutoff Sunday Feb 6. Then we can work out some way for everyone to pay and get their prints from me.

Imprezaboi, coming right up
