Peter Nevins’ new Songprint Series Letterpress Prints
Acony Records is excited to share with you a new artistic collaboration between Gillian & David and their longtime t-shirt and poster designer Peter Nevins. Over the years, Peter has collaborated with Gill & Dave on a series of t-shirt designs based on their songs “Look at Miss Ohio,” “Elvis Presley Blues,” and the latest, “Hard Times.” Now they have taken these one-color designs and turned them into gorgeous and bright 3-color letterpress prints. Hand made by Peter himself in Portland, OR, earlier this year, we are now selling them individually or as a set of 3 on the Acony Records Webstore. Prints are 12 3/8″ x 12 3/8″ on Forest Stewardship Council certified paperboard. They will arrive in a resealable polypropylene bag with an info sheet. Prints are $40 each or $100 as a set of three. They will be shipped immediately and can be shipped worldwide. We are also throwing in free shipping for US addresses on your whole order if any of the series are added to your cart.
We are also selling, for a very limited time, a set of all three prints, custom framed in our hometown of Nashville, TN, also shipped for free to a US address of your choice. Framed sets will ship at a later date, guaranteed to arrive in time for Christmas, and we will provide a tracking number for each shipment. Frames will be a 3/4″ custom made black matte frame with glass. For these reasons, we cannot offer the framed sets to addresses outside the US as we can’t guarantee safe arrival before Christmas at a reasonable price.
