(Rainack) I will just be selling merchandise at the VIP party on Friday and only until either supplies run out for that night (if there is a need to limit them so there's stuff for the general public on Saturday) or for the first hour so I don't have to miss out on the festivities as well. I will not be setting up on Friday on Fremont Street.
Just to be clear, no one is being given these items for free save for a few VIPs (including t-shirts), I just can't afford to do it this year, sorry. I've made prices as cheap as I can make them for the high standards of quality I try very hard to maintain with my work.
I'm focusing my merchandising sales primarily Saturday on Fremont in the usual spot till about mid afternoon (or while supplies last), then I will break everything down after my scheduled book signing to enjoy the surprises later that evening. I suspect demand to be higher this year due to my limited runs and more cost effective pricing and if all goes well I'll sell out early and be free to enjoy the rest of the event. Although I will have a limited supply of Knight Rider Companion books with me, I am not pushing book sales this year but if you want a copy or need one signed at any time I can manage it, feel free to ask.
As it stands right now, merchandise pricing will be as follows:
1. KRF III "Event Poster" Trading card set (3 cards to a set) - $5.00
(limited to 250 sets)
2. KRF III Knight Industries 11x17 "Kit" Set - $12.00
(limited to 100 sets)
3. KRF III 16x24 "glow in the dark" Event Poster Set* - $15.00
(*KRF II gold ink poster included as a bonus in the "set" while supplies last)
4. KRF III Event T-Shirts - $20.00 or $25.00
for special orders (3XL+/women's v-necks - shirts limited to 150)
CASH ONLY as I am unable to acquire a credit card reader machine. I will also accept paypal if someone has the ability to make a payment through their computer or phone or something.
All merchandise is first come first served, I just cannot accomidate requests for pre-sales this time around. With so much chaos it's very difficult to keep track of who has already paid for what. It may risk sales on my part but I'd rather make sure people get their things and enjoy the event than run around chasing people down to give them their stuff.
Whatever remains after the event will be offered up on the Knight Rider Festival webstore for mail orders and a limited supply of t-shirts/posters will be availible on there was well prior to the event. Stay tuned for when the webstore is updated and when mail orders merchandise will be availible. I will not update the store until I have all my merchandise on hand and ready to fulfill orders. I cannot guarantee that your orders will ship in time for the event but I will do my best to get things out as quickly as possible. If orders are placed and supplies are sold out, refunds will be issued.
I will NOT be doing a second run of event t-shirts or glow in the dark posters. These particular items are very expensive
to produce or reproduce. Once they're sold out, they're retired for good.
Again thank you for your support and understanding. This is a tremendous undertaking for one man and I hope it makes a positive difference in your collections. I am doing everything I can to make sure things run as smoothly as possible for everyone.
As with last year, partial proceeds will go to charity.
