QE2 poster reissue
« on: Jan 28, 2016, 09:53 AM »
Almost 8 years after QE2 was retired from Cunard service, I keep receiving requests for copies of my long out-of-print "blue" profile poster that used to be made available for sale by the on-board bookshop exclusively.

Since the bookshops on QM2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria are not interested in reprinting this poster, I've decided to produce a new print run in limited quantity.

For technical reasons the new edition is slightly bigger (92 x 32 cm - approx. 36 x 12 inches - instead of 84 x 34 cm - approx. 33 x 13 inches). The background is a bit different and there's now a 2cm white border (see below). The poster is very nicely printed on half-matt 200 g coated paper.

Price is CHF 30.– per copy (approx. £ 22  / US$ 31 / € 27), shipping costs not included.

Should anyone be interested in ordering one copy (or more), please use the contact form on my website: http://www.mab-creations.ch/mabmarineart/

I will then determine the shipping cost to your area and reply to you shortly. Payments can be made via bank transfer (IBAN) or PayPal.

Looks beautiful! I really like your work and admired it on board too :) . The poster would look great on my office wall!

This looks eminently suitable for a jigsaw as well -- perhaps in a slightly smaller size to make it 1000 pieces?

Thanks for your comments.  :)

The posters are now in stock and look really great.

Maybe I should mention that I printed only a small quantity and that they're not distributed to poster shops, so the only outlet to order from is my website.

I ordered a copy of the poster on Monday with first class tracked postage and received it this morning.  It is a stunning image of QE2, thank-you for reissuing the poster Marc-Antoine  :)

You're welcome, Lynda.

Posters have been selling well indeed. I have only a few copies left, soon they'll all be gone.

Well worth getting another print run made?

I'm happy with how this limited quantity is selling.

That said, I'm not planning any reissue of the reissue.

Hi Marc-Antoine -

I hope all is well.  Do you have any posters left and if so, what would be the cost to send to Connecticut, USA ?

Thanks,

June   :)

Are the posters the same design as these. This one came from the Library onboard.
