Got all the lithos from the shows I've been to so far up in my basement music room    

Thank you to everybody who helped make this possible. You know who you are

Maybe some of you would like to see a poster design that went unapproved.  I figure it would be fun to see.  This was supposed to be for the Vegas shows for tomorrow and Saturday.  Since there hasn't

I have a question for those in NA with Euro Lithos.

How have you framed these?  They are slightly smaller than the NA 18x24".   All of my NA lithos are framed in standard 18x24 frames from Michaels and looks great.  I really dont want to custom frame the Euro lithos.   Has anyone experimented with matting or background behind the lithos?  Any suggestions or pictures of what others have done would be greatly appreciated.  

Thanks in advance, 

Matt

Stick with the same frames you are using. If you make the background the same color as the frame, it'll end up perfect and unnoticeable. In fact, I think the Euro lithos look better in 18x24" frames than the actual 18x24" NA lithos because you get to see the complete litho right up until the edges. There's a lot of 18x24" frames out there that are just that TINY  bit too small to fit an 18x24" litho and you end up with 1/8" or so sorta hiding behind the frame. Or they feel cramped, crammed right up the inside edge of the frame. The 18x24" frames are perfect for showcasing the Euro size lithos in all their glory. As you can see in the post by @liqddynamite a while back, you simply can't tell the difference that the Euro lithos are that tiny bit smaller from a distance:

Hey guys, since the current leg of the tour is winding down, I figured it’d be a good time to share my framed litho collection.  Its been a fun 18 months in this thread discussing the lithos with everyone, and its been great getting to know several members through trading.  Anyway, I just wanted to share this with everybody since it feels like a team effort. 

A special thanks to my friend amaninjapan, without whom many of these (like Kobe, Madrid, Paris, Hameenlinna Aurora) would not have been possible (thanks bro, can’t for the LA shows next week!)

 

 

And then up close, they look just magnificent with just that tiny gap between the edge of the litho and the frame:

What I did for my euros that you see above, I bought sheets of black acid free mat board, and cut 18x24 rectangles myself (hobby lobby wanted some obscene amount to cut them).  Then, you put the litho in the frame against the glass, put the mat board behind it so, then the backing board the frame came with and lock it down.  Works great.

Nice litho's ArminJapan!

I'm new to this forum. Went to see Guns in The Netherlands in 2017 and 2018 which was awesome. Of course got both litho's as well from these shows. And a couple of others, of shows I didn't attend, quite addictive.

Anyways, havent had any luck finding the Japan - Osaka Lithograph on Ebay or sorts. Love the design, so got to have that one one day. I know it is rare but it shouldn't be that rare. Although, there is one Osaka on Ebay. But I believe the autographs on it to be fake, after studiyng them, and don't really care for a signed one anyways. So, if any of you guys got one to sell, let me know. Just trying my luck.

Cheers!

I'm curious if you guys have any lithos from other bands? I got one from the Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats show I was at a week ago, looks pretty good, though it's not city-specific like the GNR ones. I have a Foxy Shazam tour poster too, a bit larger than a standard litho and I got it signed by the whole band. I know Black Sabbath had litho's on The End tour, but I didn't get one at the show I went to.

More than I know what to do with, these are off the top of my head, but only count anything that is show specific:

-Greg Allman (only 5 offered at the show), Drive By Truckers (signed by full band and artist-Unfortunately, this is post-Jason Isbell), Peter Frampton (signed by Frampton), Phish (two), Red Hot Chili Peppers, Foo Fighters, Sturgill Simpson, Outlaw Music Festival, Willie Nelson (though he does basically the same one and just changes the date/location, but does limit to only 30), GNR (19 of them).  I know there are more...

I also have a couple of show specific promotional posters that I love, Bruce Springsteen, GnR (Halloween show 2010)

I'll also buy some posters at shows where I think they are cool or if it's a show that means a lot to me (Springsteen, Paul McCartney, Roger Waters, etc) even if they are just an overall Tour Poster.  

If there was one show I went to that I REALLY wish had a litho, it would have been the ACDC Show that I saw with Axl.  PHENOMENAL show and would have been cool to have it as a keepsake.

Thanks AmaninJapan and Liqddynamite!  Very helpful.  I will now have a plan.   And thank you to those that PM'd me.

This place is really full of awesome people who are are always willing to help and share!

Like to throw something out here for an opinion from the community, what does everybody think about lithos with no number.  I know they exist as I have been to hatch show print in Nashville and was shown two unnumbered ones from the Nashville gnr show in 2016.  I ended up getting a numbered one later but offered to buy one of the unnumbered ones and was told that they are not for sale.  I know some are unnumbered such as the New Jersey One and the Boston two.  The question would be, do they print more of these than the initial run and do they have any value? 

 

Looking for an opinion from the experts here.

 

 Thanks.

Controversial and has been discussed ad nauseam already.  Search the thread and you will find it.

I have one from a Beck show that I was taken to a couple of years ago. It was a re-opening night for an old venue and the litho was pretty sweet. Never did get it framed

Got some of Baroness, Swans, Kvelertak. Killer quality, all of them!

this year also got a litho of a perfect circle, signed by the band.

Hey guys I’m new to the forum but love lithos like crazy. I finally was able to get Philly from the 2017 leg and was wondering where you guys would rank it with lithos from the rest of the tour

welcome @Domscar20

 like the movie and thus the litho but can't rank it with the other from NA (excluding NYC and LA). Orlando swamp, Chicago 1 16, and Frisco are among my favorites.

I have about 75 Pearl Jam silk screen gig posters, a few Soundgarden, Sabbath, Jane's Addiction, Stones...all are silk screened as opposed to lithos

Great choices! I have the axl msg poster and the Foxboro night two which was my first GNR litho. Looking to expand the collection!

It ranks at or near the top for me. I also dig the 16’ philly one. Orlando swamp was cool, both foxborro ones, and as an under appreciated one, I’d say Pittsburgh. It’s quite simple, but very cool and easy to make sense that’s its Pittsburgh with the molten steel. 

My least favorite from all the NA shows was Hershey and DC 17’. I felt they could’ve done something really cool for Hershey, but it was just a chocolate bar. I was expecting a skeleton riding a roller coaster or something. The DC and the whole Illuminati thing I felt was cheap.

Are you guys sure these are fake?  I am sure that there are extra copies made when the original printing is done, as an example, there are 150 copies hand numbered of the kobe, it would seem reasonable to print 175, I am sure there are extras floating around out there.

Understand, but I know for a fact there are extras, went to hatch show print in Nashville, before I got my 2016 litho, they had two extras  with the / 400 on them bat did not have the handwritten numbers, they wouldn’t sell, looked exactly like mine.
