Show Posters... who makes 'em?

Postby hardmf » Thu Sep 25, 2008 3:39 pm

Looking for someone to come up with interesting, cool, (inexpensive!) band posters. Or maybe recommend a program I can buy/download to make our own?

We're pretty novice at this stuff.

I don't know who did the work, but the Knuckel Drager van repair benefit from a couple years ago at the HNS was brilliant...I'd want to get that person.

It was a take on the front of a Haynes van repair manual and very cool. I have a handbill copy of it over the workbench in the batcave.

Anybody know who did it?

I have made a few posters (and I actually get paid to be a graphic designer in real life, in case that means something) and I have always wanted to do a band poster. So if you are nice, I'd design'em for free... printing them would cost something depending on how many, number of colors, paper, etc... i'd be able to recommend somebody for that depending on what you needed...

Program-wise, you'd need something like Adobe InDesign/Photoshop/Illustrator (there are less-expensive alternatives that aren't as good) which could cost $1500... or you could go low-tech with a collage/photocopy approach, so you'd need some scissors, glue/tape and a photocopier...

Hey Lab...we would love to have a real deal graphic artist whip something up!

Girlfriends of the guitarist....or the guy who can't afford to by the eighth of weed he weasles out of the drummer.

That's who makes the posters.

Not sure. What is the safest way to exchange contact info here without risking being spammed back to the stone age?
