Well it finally happened. The limited edition laser cut cells are now available for purchase at our store. We made five hundred of the Twisp and Catsby “Tea with the Moon” cells and we won’t be making anymore…ever. We might make more collectible cells but we’ll never print “Tea with the Moon” again. See that’s what makes it limited edition. Now we kept the first one for ourselves, I hope you don’t mind. Then we took numbers two through fifty and we are keeping those for conventions. That means if you want one of those you’ll need to come see us at the Emerald City comic-con. Numbers 51 through 500 are available for purchase online through our store, and the number you receive depends on how quickly you get over there and buy one. I’m telling you guys this is an honest to God collector’s item and when you get it you will be knocked on your ass by the quality. I mean check this shit out:
Laser Cels are a lithograph technology where the image is actually printed on industrial grade Mylar. Unlike traditional animation cels and paper; Mylar will not fade, chip, crack or deteriorate. Additionally, this synthetic is immune to heat, light and moisture. However, similar to its counterparts, images printed using this process still retain the same high quality and brilliant colors found in any animated cell. To complete the presentation and further define each piece as collectible, the Laser Cell prints are mounted in a double mat. Each print has a uniquely numbered laser etched medallion, as well as a signature card embedded within the mat itself. The result is a limited edition, pre-matted print that excels in beauty and quality.
See what did I tell you? Once again Penny Arcade refuses to fuck around. I know these prints are late and we apologize. I get mail every single day from people asking for updates on the prints so I know how bad you want them. Keep in mind there are only 450 available online so if you want one you better move on it. We appreciate you guys being patient with us while we developed these. Now we have a better understanding of the process so when/if we make any other prints things should go much smoother.
