    Anyone else seen this and love it as much as I do?! I don't know when I am going to be able to visit WDW and so for the first time I think I am actually going to call Deliverears or whatever it's called and have them ship it home to me directly :goodvibes! I love his art, it's just awesome!! I would love the large original artwork for 20 grand but I think I'll have to make due with the tumblers, coasters, postcard set and maybe even a pillow sham :lovestruc! Gonna cost me a mint in shipping but I'm worth it!

    We were just over there last Saturday and picked up the coasters. They are awesome. We are going back to get some of the other stuff (especially the glasses). The postcards didn't impress me to much. Not because of the way they look just for what you get for the price.

    Went to look today.

    Cute stuff.

    The $425 LE 300 giclee sold out at the Main Street event and the DTD event.

    I'm sure you are thinking...."they sold 300 $425 prints????"

    Well...no.

    They sold 10 $425 giclees at each location because that's all they ordered.

    Yup....20 out of 300.

    The other 280 havent been "gicleed" yet.

    The smaller, non LE version of the print is $35.00.

    It's only $35 because it's smaller and not "gicleed".

    The pillow, which is quite cute, is $62.00. It must have giclee on it to command $62.00.

    They have glasses, coasters, postcards a button down shirt and a tshirt....none gicleed.

    I spent 10 minutes with the sales person and she said the word "giclee" at least 300 times....one for each LE.

    Definition according to Wikipedia...

    Giclée (pronounced /ʒiːˈkleɪ/ "zhee-clay" or /dʒiːˈkleɪ), is a neologism coined in 1991 by printmaker Jack Duganne[1] for fine art digital prints made on ink-jet printers. The name originally applied to fine art prints created on IRIS printers in a process invented in the late 1980s but has since come to mean any high quality ink-jet print and is often used by artist, galleries, and print shops to denote such prints.

    I used to have an ink-jet printer.

    Who knew I was making giclees?

    we were in WDW this past January and Shag was at Magic Kingdom signing autographs at an event. We didn't try to get one, but love his stuff.

    Will they only have this merchandise for a short time, or do you think they'll have it through the summer? We'll be down in a month, and I love the motif!!!

    An absolutely incredible Eyvind Earle print.

    He's the artist responsible for most of Sleeping Beauty.

    LE 24/50.

    Love his art. It's the movie that's dull.

    I asked a cast member when I was purchasing my stuff(and we know how some of the answers are) that with the exception of the limited prints, that everything was open edition. So they should have them at least until the end of the 40th celebration. But that is no guarantee.

    Thought you all might like it but I'm at work now and had saved the podcasts for my commute so I hadn't heard the discussion yet :p.
    Kevin you make me laugh, thanks for explaining about the gliclee, I've often wondered! I googled the artist you mentioned, beautiful, moody, I love that too now :).
    Mike I am teetering between World and Land so I haven't called to order yet but I should just go ahead since there would surely be more souvies
