OBAMA 2008 CAMPAIGN "HOPE" POSTER
« on: May 23, 2016, 09:42:27 AM »
Hi There

I need to find an original Obama (2008) Campaign  poster. Ideally the medium size (similar to WC).

It will go to an office in the UK Parliament so the future owner is keen to have the real thing. There are some on ebay but I have no idea if they are original. Si I told him I will ask here.

He wants to pay 25- 35 max.

Any help from my APF savvy  collectors would be much appreciated.

Thank you in advance

Talk to Rich.  He had a gazillion of these for sale last year.  I'd bet he has some left.

I think some originals have more yellowish borders
Mine has white but I did buy it off ebay on the premise that it was authentic nonetheless
Anyways ill be curious to hear what rich has to say.  Think its 24x36

Rosa, I have 4 styles

Hope
Progress
Change
Obama

they are 13x19
I also have a larger size (probably 24x36), though I can't recall offhand which slogan it is

as Matt says, they have a yellow border
someone asked me about these last week and I explained I got them from a printer who was jobbed by the NV Democratic party (excess stock)
my suspicion is that each main office across the country got film separations and was jobbed to get their own done, probably due to the lack of a distribution system and also probably to get each state party to pay it's own costs. I never asked to that great detail and seeing as they were closing the business in Vegas at the time (2010), there's no way for me to find out more.

On heavy stock, so I only ship the smaller size flat

drop me an email sales@comic-art.com

yes, but none of those are printed for the campaign. All of those are art prints, which are an entirely different category
