  • Special Limited Edition Prints

    Captain Jaclyn gave me permission to let you folks know ahead of tomorrows email:

    http://www.cafepress.com/b5prints

    Will show you the gorgeous prints from the B5-20 book. They're only going to be available till Oct. 26. And shipping is *really* low, even international!

    AND our dear Captain has even ferreted out a great coupon. ann1015 is good for $15 off. We think it's good for the entire time these are for sale but CP can be unpredictable, especially when it comes to coupons.

    To paraphrase Lianna Kemmer: The Captain's fond of JMSnews.com forums.

    You guys are killing me! You know, it would be nice to spend my hard-earned money on something other than B5 once in a while...

    Well, I just ordered two of them. Thanks for the heads-up, Jan!

      I can vouch for these, they're nicely done.
      Captain John Sheridan: I really *hate* it when you do that.

      Kosh: Good!

        LOL at the hanging suggestions. Just what I need: photos from 'Sleeping in Light' hanging over my bed so I can cry myself to sleep every night.

          Or dream of true love...?

            I couldn't find where to use the couponcode...

              When you proceed to checkout, under the order total on the right there is a box that says Apply Promo Code. Put the coupon code there and hit apply. It does appear to work.

              At the moment I think I am going to pass on these images.

                Objective Opinion

                Greetings from the Bridge everyone!

                Before we launch anything new we choose a fan/customer for an objective opinion and for quality control. We order the product anonymously and have it sent to the fan (who does know it's coming).

                We are looking for two pieces of data. First, how it survived the shipping and, second, the fans totally objective opinion. We only offer the goodies once so a negative or a positive doesn't influence future participation in "the fan board."

                This time out we choose Ubik, which is why, above he said he can "vouch for these." Below is his entire email about the prints --
                First impression - It looks nice. The frame is functional and sturdy, nothing special to look at but it gets the job done. The mount is nice enough, looks professional. The print quality is good and I could see no issues with it.

                I noticed a few indentations on the print itself, two fingernail sized creases, but this isn't really a big problem. I know your customer service is second to none and that you will replace anything with imperfections, but it might be worth keeping an eye on if prints are getting slightly tarnished during the framing process.

                As for the price point. I think $69 is about right. Looking around online at other framed prints, it seems around right. I'm unsure if I'd pay anymore than that unless it was something special like a Giclee print or a silk screened piece. I think fans will like these and given it comes all ready to hang and framed, $69 does not seem unreasonable.

                Because of Ubik's input that we passed along to Cafepress, they adjusted their system to avoid any future indentation issues. Secondly they recalibrated their equipment to make Ubik's already good print-quality look even better.

                With the $15 off promo code (ann1015) we think this is one of the best deals we've ever offered. But I *am* biased.

                  ...and there was me being all coy about it! So, yes... I've seen a proof of the 'Starfury Pilot' print, and I definitely think other B5 fans will love these. One thing I failed to mention was the shipping price. It's cheap. I pay more than that for one LP from the USA.

                    Is it only me, but (after 20 hours) I have yet to receive an order confirmation e-mail. It's the first time it takes this long.
                    Anyone else with this problem?

                      Order Confirmations

                      Hi DeMonk --

                      We spoke to Cafepress this morning and they can't find any evidence of problems with order confirmations. That said we have gotten a couple emails from fans with the same issue, so you're not nuts.

                      If you are concerned about an order because you have not gotten a confirmation we can offer you two options.

                      (1) email [email protected] and we will happily get that information for you with a screenshot or (2) log into your cafepress account. There is an ORDERS tab/section that will show all your orders and its status. If it has shipped it will also show your tracking.

                      Remember, we work for J. Michael Straczynski not Cafepress and our job is to make sure you are happy, happy, happy.

                      Best regards,
                      Captain Jaclyn

                        Last day and a half to order your prints! Looking forward to getting my 'Final Goodbye" print but not sure where I'll hang it yet.

                          I have alas a triple threat.

                          No place to hang the prints I have now.
                          No money to buy additional prints.
                          no guarantee I will still be in ny current accomodation if I did order to this address (looking for a bigger apartment).

                          Enjoy them

It degenerates and corrupts both sides to ever more sordid levels of existence, in their need to gain an advantage over the enemy. Those actively involved in combat are almost always damaged goods for the rest of their lives. If their bodies don't bear scars, their minds do, ofttimes both. Many have said it before, but it can't be said to enough, war is hell. "

                            Funnily enough, this has not got me as excited as the other stuff from B5Books.

                            The B5-20 book is just wonderful, and I think that fulfills my needs for B5 images for a while.

                            I have, however some large Litho's from Lightspeed Fine Art, and they (and the Declaration (Limited ed)) will take up most of my wall space anyway.

                            To all of you who buy the prints, I wish you all the enjoyment in the world.

                              I wish there were a few upbeat pictures to choose from. Looking at SiL everyday is too much to handle.

                              Sigh….I'm somewhat disappointed that this will be the first script books solicitation I won't be purchasing since the script books started.

                              Fingers crossed for the next project.
