Alright folks, it's almost time to begin stalking your mailman ;)

We will begin shipping in 2 days, beginning with preorders.
*If you preorderd and purchased more blinds during the final drop, your orders will be combined and shipped together*
We'll then continue with all regular orders, and if you purchased a print, it will ship separately in a mailing tube. 

*International customers : I will be contacting everyone just to make sure how much you want me to declare (for those of you who wish to avoid high customs fees), and to double check on any upgrade options*
And lastly, I'm still awaiting payment from a couple of customers for the shipping charge mistake made by storenvy. I will contact those two customers again, and be advised that the shipping of your order will be delayed. If you've paid, or I have not contacted you because you do not owe anything, you're fine

I have copied the S&H details below, as a quick reference: 

U.S. S&H :: $6 for the 1st/$3 for each additional blind box

    * Orders of one blind box within the US will be shipped via 1st class with delivery confirmation.
    * Orders of two or more will be shipped via priority with signature confirmation.
    * Orders of 4 or more will be fully insured with signature confirmation.

INTERNATIONAL S&H :: $10 for the 1st/$4 for each additional blind  box

    * Orders of 1-4 blind boxes will go out via first class air mail without tracking. [*it's recommended that you purchase registration or upgrade to priority if purchasing more than 1 blind box*]
    * Orders of 5-6 will go out via registered first class mail which can be tracked, or possibly priority mail,  if the amount paid for shipping covers enough for priority.
    * Orders of 7 or more will be guaranteed to ship via priority. We may even ship your order via express if the shipping paid is enough to cover it. Express mail includes insurance up to $100 USD.
    * You may purchase extra services like registered mail and insurance. But please keep in mind that insurance is solely based on how much is declared. If you want us to declare a low value so that you do not incur high custom fees, then you will not be fully covered. To be fully insured, you must purchase full insurance, and let us know that you wish for us to declare the full value.

I just wanted to take a quick minute before I head off to bed (it's been a very long day to say the least, haha) to say thank you. Thank you for today's 2 minute sell out. You guys and girls are some of the greatest fans around. I'm sure I speak for Tim, Igor, Jared, Rhiannon, Walter, Sergio, Angie, Jon, Simon, Luihz, Owen, Lonnie, Alex, Kevin, and Eric when I say, thank you for all the love you given us and the Most Wanted Artist Collective. It's a great feeling to be a part of such an amazing community, globally unified for the love and respect of our art scene (from low brow, to high brow, to vinyl, whatever it may be). 

Collectors, keep collecting. Inspiring artists, keep growing. And as for us, we'll keep doing it all for you ;)

Mad Love,

The MW Crew

It's D-day folks, and we're just as antsy as some of you out there to get this show on the road. Hopefully I won't be tempted to release them a minute or two early ;) Here's a dirty teaser to keep you hanging on. . .can you name the artist?

Hours to go that is. . .

Check out the shop for new items like our MW2 poster, limited to only 8 pieces. They're professionally printed on photo paper which has a nice high quality gloss, and aren't too shabby in the size department at 16x24". These will look great mounted along side your MW2 collection, and will probably go pretty fast so don't hesitate to grab one ;) They will go on sale at 11:30am, 30 minutes prior to the blind box sale so that you don't have to worry about missing out on one or the other. Here's a small scale pic of the poster, and by the way, Jon Paul Kaisers design will be shown on the final posters. This one is just blanked out in order to keep the mystery of the chase for just a little bit longer. . .

 And remember, the early bird gets the worm. . .and in this case, maybe even 10 minutes early. . .
