We aren't sure how many posters will be produced yet, Chris. We're printing a ton, but there are usually some casualties as a result of the super tedious and meticulous hand screenprinting process. Each poster is literally produced BY HAND.

More progress from the weekend. The light blue ink goes down...



Then the flesh tone of the chick...





And finally the orange ink...





Tonight, Dinah and I are printing the gloss blackline!!
Stay tuned!!

Brilliant as usual mr. Spike!



How is your lower back holding out, though?

Thanks, Mick! Hope to see you at the show!

Pulled the final screens last night.

If you aren't familiar with the screen printing process, here's a quick breakdown:

A tight mesh screen is coated with a photo emulsion. The screen is burned by an exposure unit and the unnecessary emulsion is removed, leaving behind a clean area in the mesh with the identical shape as the desired image from the film.

Each color has it's own screen... and the ink is pulled through the screen onto the paper with a squeegee.

It is super easy to screw up registration, ink consistency, squeegee pressure, and a TON of other things...





We are super ecstatic about how these prints came out. The blackline is a high gloss ENAMEL ink. The contrast between flat inks and the gloss is really cool.




Each one will be numbered and signed. They are all totally one of a kind prints.
Hope you dig them! We'll have them for sale at The Hula Girls' merch table!!

GROG has done hand silkscreening, and yes it's very easy to mess up. So, good job! Very well done.

Love the posters. Corona Contessa and I are going to plan a week of Tiki Bar hopping in 2013 and looking forward to experiencing the Market Place.

Thanks for the comments about the poster, folks.
It's going to be a limited edition of only 70 posters. With well over that many tickets already sold for the show, they are sure to go fast!

Only $30 for a limited edition, hand screened, art piece to commemorate this really cool event! They are printed on heavy cardstock too!

UPDATE ON TICKET SALES....

With the amount of ticket sales quickly reaching the goal/limit, we will discontinue online sales this Wednesday at midnight. If you have been on the fence about purchasing in advance or waiting until the night of the event, I recommend you buy now as we may be sold out before the event.

To purchase tickets go to:
http://theuntouchables.bpt.me/

I am posting this same announcement on the Facebook event page, so get yours today!

Thanks for your support in bringing this quality show to Don the Beachcomber!!!

If you have any questions, please PM me directly. Do not call the restaurant. Thanks!

Thanks to everyone who came!! I have never seen the Hidden Village of DtB that crowded before. Estimates were into the 350+ in attendance!
AMAZING job to Chris Garland for doing a stellar job at promoting...and to everyone else who helped out including Karen Garland for working the door, Adrian (Polypop) for working the sound for The Hula Girls, and Susan Nelson for working our merch booth!!

Thanks to Polypop for this photo


The UTs going for it.


New UTs song idea? "Too drunk to scoot".
