Take a quick glance at the aborted poster for Gene Ween's August 26th and August 27th performances. Designed by T-Bone & Aljax and printed and produced by ABNRML.com. The hurricane cancelled the shows! Stay tuned for these designs, perhaps even posters, to be used for another set of shows with a little tweaking. They should be quite the collectors item! Each poster is printed on black French Paper cover stock and measures 9.5"X25" and both are 3-color silk screens.
Get up and dance! Lotus is having a festival in Ohio this weekend. Far enough away from the storm to throw your flooding worries aside and go wiggle and move with their Summer Dance 2011 festival. 100 of these delightful 4-color 19"X25" prints were screened with love for T-Bone & Aljax and Lotus. They are individually numbered and screened on French Paper cover stock and will be available at the shows. It was a challenging print and something to see in person!
Live Nation contacted ABNRML for a last minute project as a gift to Band of Horses for swooping in and covering a cancelled date at the TLA in Philadelphia. Kings of Leon abruptly canceled their tour and several key shows were filled by other bands in and effort to pitch in and help out. Philadelphia music fans were treated to a surprise performance by Band of Horses in place of Kings of Leon. The show sold out very quickly and Live Nation wanted to give the band a very special gift. ABNRML turned immediately to our poster cohorts T-Bone & Aljax to whip up a quick print. With lightening speed they churned out this wonderful 12.5"X19" 3-color design. It was printed with metallic silver ink and was not available to the public. A small handful of test prints are available on ABNRML.com.
This was a very special opportunity and print for ABNRML. Ben Gibbard (Death Cab for Cutie, The Poster Service) has been one of our favorite writers for a long, long time. We have seen several Death Cab for Cutie shows and were thrilled at the opportunity to print a poster for their performance on August, 5 2011 at the Mann in Philadelphia, PA. The show was supported by Frightened Rabbit who we have also collaborated on prints with. The print was designed by Joe Castro of Red Attic Studios. It is a stark 2-color print on 19"X25" steel blue French Paper cover stock. An extremely limited amount of these were printed and some are available on ABNRML.com.
Check out the awesome three part poster series for Grace Potter & The Nocturnal's festival in Burlington, VT. The Grand Point North festival in Burlington, VT is headlined by Grace Potter and has some tremendous acts on the bill. The festival ran on August 13th & 14th and featured performances by The Wood Brothers, Hoots & Hellmouth, Taj Mahal Trio and more. 200 of each design were printed on 19"X25" French Paper cover stock and were available at the festival.
Take a gander at the latest Big Audio Dynamite's 2011 Tour Poster. This 2-color print was designed by John Warner of J Dub All Stars for BAD's 2011 USA tour. ABNRML was luck enough to print BAD's apparel merch a couple times now and we are pleased to print their second poster as well. 200 of these 19"X25" posters were printed for their tour and sold out quickly.
This is the latest in the art print series by Matt Glick over at The 50/50 Company. This is probably ABNRML's favorite of the prints. An extremely limited number of these 1-color 19"X25" silk screened art prints will be available from 50/50. It is screened on white speckletone French Paper cover stock.
Grace Potter & The Nocturnals have become a large national act over the last few years. ABNRML is happy to help fulfill their poster needs and have partnered up with John Warner of J Dub All Stars to print some larger runs of these two prints. We are not entirely sure who the actual artist is but John cleaned it up and got it ready to print. One of the 2011 Summer Tour posters is a 5-color print on yellow French Paper cover stock. The other is a 4-color print on white. Both measure 19"X25" and are silk screened with love. The prints have been available throughout Grace Potter's national tour.
