Holiday Shopping Ideas at PosterHero.com

Posted in What's New with tags , , , , , , , , on November 28, 2011 by posterhero

It’s holiday shopping time and we at Posterhero thought you might need some help finding gifts for the loved ones on your list…and maybe a few of the the not-so-loved ones too. So, we’ve been keeping up with the Jones’ of the poster world all year long and with prints, posters, framed art or value-framing (don’t let the” value” part fool you…it looks great and they’ll never know you got a great deal!), and we’ve got the gifts you need. No need to look further, really, we’ve got you–and your walls–covered this holiday season! So let’s get started…

For the family, you love them, you appreciate them, so why not give them a gift that will remind them of how much you care all year long? We’ve got inspirational mom prints for the more traditional, apple pie baking moms. And if your mom is a little less conventional, maybe you just want to say “Hey, my mom rocks!”.

And we wouldn’t want dad to feel left out, so we’ve got some of that inspirational dad art too. But let’s be real, we also have a great selection of sports art and dad would probably like that better…so find a pic of his favorite QB or a nice set of golf clubs, frame it up- and you’re done!

And guys, we know you probably need some help shopping for you better halves, so we’re going to help with that too. The ladies of Posterhero like their flowers, but not in a vase, and not with lace, give them flowers that show them you have great taste, and you recognize they do to, and hey, these really cool flowers last forever!

Ladies, don’t think we forgot how hard it is to shop for the guys too. They love cars, sports, and beer, and we’ve got ‘em all. So now that you’re done with them, why don’t you do a little shopping for yourself…you might want to start here.

We know you have cool friends and you want to get them some kick-ass gifts too so this is where the fun really starts. If your friends like to rock, we’ve got pics for that; and if they’re a little more urban, these Steez posters should do the trick. If your friends like to party, show them you care, and if your friends like to rally, this #ows poster will show them you’re there (in spirit anyway!).

Now there’s those people that you don’t really want to spend your hard earned money on; but you’ve gotta do it. So, let’s keep it as painless as possible. Starting with the bosses; show them you’re business-minded and appreciate a great leader when you see one with one of these inspirational Steve Jobs quotes. If the boss thinks you are making a reference to him or her being an innovative and inspiring leader too…all the better, right?

And for the secret Santa at the company Christmas party, maybe a pic of some places that we’d all rather be, than at work…from Argentina to Sydney, and everyplace in between, these great places make great daydreaming material for any cubicle.

We hope that’s given you some good ideas to start, but there really is all that and so much more at PosterHero so we hope you’ll do a little browsing of your own when you stop by.

“Sorry, Just Being a…” New Original Posters & An Employee Rant

Posted in Guest Posts, Poster of the Week, What's New with tags , , , , , , , , on September 15, 2011 by posterhero

Sorry Just Being A Dick

Sometimes being brutally honest and (or) satirical in your interactions with people gets you labeled.  We here at PosterHero.com know the feeling all to well.  So we decided “Why not just let everyone know up front what the deal is?”.  So we created our own new line of Sorry Just Being A … posters.  Now anyone who dares to walk into the room will know what they are in for.

Case in point:  One of our “interesting ” employees, Collin, decided to write us a little anecdote about his day that we feel properly reflects the brutal honesty that inspired us to create these posters.

This is what he had to say:

“While driving down I-295 and Route 1 today I had an epiphany; I am the best driver on the east coast. I pondered this notion all day and now, here at the end of it, I have come to the conclusion that this is truth. I have also spent a better part of the day – all while putting together frames and doing other sundry tasks – coming to the conclusion that I am the single greatest person to walk this earth. Why is that?

5 reasons:

1) Women want me, men want to be me. I know this because women talk to me. Obviously if they talk to me they must want me. Hence it must follow that men want to be me. I don’t blame them.

2) I am more interesting than any of those other jerks you know. Why is that? It’s due to my ability to tell the best bits of my life in no more than two hours, and the fact I weave exaggerated stories until they’re better than the one that you just told. Man I’m good.

3) I am clever, smart and wise. A fortune cookie told me that – a fortune cookie I got for free, I might add, from this really mysterious looking old guy when I picked up the General Tso’s chicken I had for dinner the other night. How did he know that, A) I loved cookies, B) I was the man that fortune was meant for?

4) I tell funny jokes. How do I know this? Because I know I deliver them better than the comedians I got them from. People who don’t watch stand up comedy tell me I’m really funny all the time, and I know they appreciate how creative I am.

5) I think that if I could compare myself to any major figure in history, I’d say I was like Hugh Hefner meets Jesus.

Next time you’re on I-295 or Route 1 during morning rush hour and you see a white Mazda protege coming up behind you, get the hell out-of-the-way. That guy’s me and [I just took my asshole pill], meaning I will honk at and flash you with high beams until you get into the other lane and let me tailgate the guy you were just tailgating.”

Wow, great stuff Collin.  Genghis Khan just called and said “…and people called Me a dick!”

Anyway, check out our complete selection here.  Buy one for yourself or for the “eccentric” person in your life.

Are you clever and witty? If not, at least do you think you are? If so, now you have an opportunity to show it to the world by coming up with a witty tag line to go on PosterHero.com.

Poster Hero add your own slogan

This is where you click

 

All you have to do is click the “submit you own slogan” link underneath the PosterHero logo at the top of the site.   From there you will be taken to the PosterHero facebook page discussion board. There is where you will post your slogan idea. If we like it we’ll put your slogan in our rotation of whacky tag lines. While you’re there give us a “like”, checkout our wall posts, leave your own posts or do whatever it is you do on Facebook.

 

A couple of ground rules for slogan submission:

 

1)      Let’s keep it PG-13

2)      No hate speech or any other derogatory comments. It’s not funny and we don’t want to get sued or nothing.

3)      Keep it short and sweet. It’s a tag line not The Great Gatsby. Keep it to around 35 characters (yes that does include spaces and punctuation etc.).

 

Ok, that’s it. Have fun with it and we’re looking forward to see what you peeps can come up with.

An evening with Kevin Smith and Red State

Posted in What's New with tags , , , , , on March 8, 2011 by posterhero

On Saturday I had the pleasure of making the trek to Radio City Music Hall to see the premiere of Kevin Smith’s upcoming film “Red State” (It will be in theaters Oct. 19th, 2011) along with the Q & A session following the show. It was the first show of the Red State Tour that Kevin & Company are taking on the road to promote the movie and build a word of mouth / viral marketing campaign in lieu of the traditional advertising campaigns that most films follow these days.  (For more info on the Red State Tour click here).  Below are just some of my thoughts on the film.

Full Disclosure: I have been a fan of Smith’s work since he burst onto the film scene with “Clerks” back in 1994. Being a kid from Jersey and being a product of Generation X, Smith’s prose resonated with me in a deeply personal and profound way. I’ve seen all of Kevin’s films (liking most of them) and I’ve seen him on his Q & A tours when he comes to the Philly or Jersey area.  I follow him on Twitter and on Facebook. So like I said, I am a fan (obviously) of his work and I tend to view his work through the eyes of a fan and not of a film critic. Also, this post is NOT a spoiler and really not even a deep review of the movie since that would require me releasing info that could spoil the film and let’s be honest, I am not a professional film critic so my opinion is to be taken with a grain of salt.

Now, with that out of the way.

Red State the Father

“Red State” is nothing like any Kevin Smith movie that you have ever seen before. Period. The Fat Kid from Jersey has grown up.  What Smith has created with “Red State” is a darkly satirical horror / thriller that captivates you with its jarring editing and lack of musical score. It’s loaded with blood splatter, machine gun fire and great dialogue between the characters (which is a Smith trademark). Smith takes you on a roller coaster ride throughout the movie and once you think you know what’s going to happen he throws you through a loop and the film ends with such a great little twist that M. Night Shyamalan should take some notes. Smith also gets a fantastic performance from Michael Parks as “The Father” Abin Cooper (see the teaser poster to the left).  Parks drops the hammer in this role! He makes Cooper a loathsome hatemonger while simultaneously showing you the charisma and power of rhetoric that this character must posses in order to manipulate his flock.

“Red State” may be Smith’s best work since the original “Clerks”. It is an original story wrapped in a usually played our genre that goes nowhere you’d expect it to.  I highly recommend that everyone go see it when it hits the theaters. It will be well worth it.
