Pushposters sell all kinds of band merchandise, from Posters to T-Shirts.
Pushposters.com is perhaps the most comprehensive music poster site on the net, and subsequently, the most reliable place to buy music posters period. Their stock ranges from pop acts such as Kyle and Mariah Carey, through alternate acts such as The Strokes and Nickelback, all the way through to heavier bands such as Cradle of Filth and Slipknot. Lets just say that everything is covered. If you can't find a poster or two for a band which you like here, I would be very suprised indeed. They also cover other music accessories such as tour books, calenders, badges etc. These areas are minor compaired to the posters section, but if you are looking for a particular item under one of these headings, it is more than likely that they will have it. -What are the posters like? The size, quality and origin of the posters all vary quite alot. The posters I have bought vary in size massively; 86x62cm and 150x100cm are the sort of size you can expect, although I have bought one poster that was over 2 metres tall (and at a very good price, I might add). Let us take, for example, posters of the popular Britpop band, Blur. A quick search reveals 26 posters currently available, starting as cheap as £2. They include release posters (advertising new releases) for the recent(ish) single Tender and album "13". Also older release posters for singles such as Stereotypes, tour posters, commercial posters (released simply for people to buy and put on their wall), aswell as some posters for their various solo career attempts. -How much? The posters are all reasonably priced, and range from as little as a pound all the way up to £25+ for rarely or larger items. Post and packaging adds a little to the price, but by no means an extortionate amount. Added to this, there is often a sale on. Their sales allow them to clear out a lot of their stock, and I have picked up several bargains. -What is
the site like? The site is easy to navigate, whether you are just browsing or looking for something specific. It is sometimes a little slow, but it is usually worth the wait. The help pages are comprehensive and usually solve any problem that you may have. The site uses the now standard 'shopping cart' method, so you can click on the posters you wish to buy, and then view a list of those you have selected. The payment methods are varied, and the secure server is, in my experience, reliable. They also offer an email service, which I got for a while, but stopped recieving due to silly bulk of junk mail. The service offers: Receive special offers + discounts FREE entry to monthly prize draw Receive updates on your favourite artists If you need a few more posters for your walls, you cannot go wrong with pushposters, who offer a comprehensive and reliable service.
Poster buying is not the easiest of things to do online, but PushPosters (based in Dumbartonshire but shipping throughout the country by 1st Class Royal Mail) makes it a truly easy and enjoyable experience. Searches are quick and efficient, and you can select the type of merchandise you are looking for. For PushPosters not only stock posters of various sizes, they have textile flags, T Shirts, Calenders, hats, keyrings etc of all sorts of musicians and bands... Prices are clear throughout the site, and you can view good sized images of all products. Payment is also very easy, with the company accepting all major cards, plus the likes of JCB and Solo. They are also one of a growing number of sites to use Paypal, plus non card payment options including UkSmart/SmartCreds. Postage is certainly fair at £2, regardless of quantity, given the very solid tubes that posters are shipped in. (Multiple orders of posters all come in one tube). I would highly recommend PushPosters to anyone for themselves, as a gift, or for a good resource of what's available, given their remarkable range. www.pushposters.com www.pushposters.co.uk
Pushposters does not just sell posters as its name suggests, it sells a whole wide range of music merchandise. I have ordered a couple of things, once unsuccessful, so here is my experience with the company. Whatever your taste in music, this website will have a product of any artist you wish to choose. Heard of Astrid? Cradle of Filth? The Banana Frogs? (OK so I made the last one up!) Well, I have, but they are not well known bands, but there are products on here from Astrid and Cradle of Filth. I could reel off a load more examples of various names that you may not have heard of, but that would just lead to a long review… (any churners reading, don’t even bother!) From the Misfits to the Spice Girls (what a jump!) you will not be disappointed with the range of artists. Another good range they have is the range of products. The name of the website is perhaps slightly misleading now as they have diversified into a much wider market, expanding their product portfolio and giving the consumer a better choice. Once upon a time there were posters available and that was it, but now there are T-shirts, calendars, key-chains, tour-books, baseball caps and even poster hangers available. Although I have never had a poster hanger, the website says it is "the cool way to hang your posters" who am I to disagree?! On the homepage of the website you will see ten posters which the site considers to be its best-sellers and its best new releases. These are situated in the middle of the page with their current poster sale advertised (more on this later) and underneath a couple of T-shirts and calendars to show to give you a couple of examples of what they sell. They have some calendars which are actually 75% off, but this is a limited few, some of the more unpopular ones, but most of their calendars have money marked off the RRP or their own standard price. The bottom third of the homepage is full of links to the new items that the site
osters on the site. The sale is bloooooming excellent, at least 25% off most posters, up to 75% off calendars, and some posters are over 50% off too. The balancing act then begins to determine as to whether it would still be cheaper to buy it in town or from here. I suppose the price is usually lower by a pound or so from this site, but not always so do keep an eye on the price and add on p+p when calculating the overall costs. I have ordered a Green Day poster from the site which was reduced by two pounds to £3.99, which was great and p+p was two quid, so I just ordered the poster anyway, as I did not think there would be any places I could find this poster. It arrived a few days later in this solid, and I mean solid, cardboard tube with shredded newspapaer or something on the inside for extra padding. The two pounds p+p is actually two pounds worth, not a rip-off! This cardboard tube is sitting in a cupboard ready for me to use it to take to university later this year OR if you buy two posters on two separate occasions you will have two thick solid tubes. What do we do with these? We get two people together to try and hit the living sh….. daylights out of each other! WARNING: Do not hit people with solid cardboard tubes, you may injure them. Unless they are wearing padding, in which case go ahead and beat them. To make it fair to start with, one tube to each person. Points can be scored on a hit basis, judges can be employed if you so wish, bit like boxing, with a point going to each participant with every decent hit. Dustbin lids can also be used as shields. Note: I will not accept any liability for any actions you take. I also tried to order a T-shirt…well, it said ‘Hooligan’ across the front in big bold letters, which I was quite eager to have! Finally a T-shirt that was my style. But, to my dismay the supplier of pushposters was not able to obtain another T-shirt like this. I sent many emails to their custo
mer service centre which were always replied to within a day, and to my disappointment they said they could not obtain this T-shirt from any of their other suppliers. Never mind I thought, at least they had bothered to keep in constant contact with me, and this did encourage me to stick with the site. Customer service is very important in my book. Ordering is easy. Fill in the usual details, like name, address etc. then they will send you to their secure part of the site in which you enter your credit or debit card details. A non-secure ordering page is also available to all those who do not have this security aspect on their browser and do not mind taking the chance. NEVER TAKE THIS CHANCE! You can buy vouchers from this site, which can be redeemed only here. Can I receive information from my favourite bands? Want to know the latest offers and new releases of your favourite bands? Well, go to the bands own website you bloody fool and sign-up to their own mailing list! No, on pushposters.com, can I do it there? Oh yeah, sorry. You can choose from as many artists as you like, and receive an email every time the band releases a new item of merchandise. Very handy. If you sign up to this you will also receive an email every time they have special sales and offers on. Occasionally a band will release a poster of which only five-hundred copies are printed (as an example) and pushposters will allow you to buy these purchases sometimes quite cheaply, but you gotta be quick! The prices can be very high though, a limited edition Blur, "Music is my radar" poster was absoloutely massive in size, but I think it was fifty quid! Most posters are about 80cm by 60cm (such as my Green Day poster) which was originally £5.99 I believe, but there is a wide range of poster sizes. Calendars are also in a massive range. Baseball caps are one size only, and T-shirts come in skinny (for the girlie
s) small, medium, large and extra large, although not all T-shirts have all sizes, so….yeah. Generally, great site, secure, easily navigated, sometimes cheap, good customer service, good offers and a wide range of bands to choose from. Ta. DAN
Pushposters.com is a website full of posters, T-shirts and much more all to do with singers. From Eminem to Atomic Kitten there is every band/artist you could want. It isn't just for Americans either, they put all the prices in both dollars and pounds. It is a great site and although you have to pay p&p the products are worth buying. Posters; There are a wide range of posters, from D12 to Destiny's Child. There are usually a lot of different ones for each artist. All a bit cheaper then in the shops so it is worth buying them on here but you have to add on a couple of pounds for p&p. Keyrings/tour guides ect; There are loads of other little things on here including things like keyrings. They are pretty cheap and great if you collect things like that. T-Shirts; There are loads of T-shirts and jackets, they go all the way up to X-Large so it doesn't matter what size you are. They do t-shirts, jackets and tight tops. There are loads to choose from and are all at quite a good price as well. The website is really easy to use and everything is labeled clearly so you can easily find whatever you want. The delivery is quick and all the products have good explanations so you know exactly what you're buying. This is a great website. The list of things at the top makes it easier to find and you can sign up for mailing lists of your favourite singers. You even get entered into a prize draw each month. This is worth visiting and has a lot of offers. Every week they choose a favourite band/artist and all their stuff is reduced by 10% which is great. I love buying things from this site and although I have to pay postage and packing the products are still great value.
Right, well pushposters.com is a site I have know about for quite a wile but never really visited until I thought that I wanted a poster of my favourite band slipknot, then I remembered a mate telling me about this site. When I first went on the site and looked around I was pleasantly surprised at the very large selection of posters, key rings, tour books and t-shirts available. Firstly the site has a very wide selection of bands merchandise all the way from heavy metalers such as Slipknot to the likes of Destiny’s Child so practically whatever bands/artists you like you will be able to find on this site. The site has many good features: - There is a side bar on the left with a full list of the different items they stock (i.e. T- shirts, posters….) - There is a mailing list you can sign up to so you can receive news on new merchandise in stock and general news. - there is a band of the week feature where there is a chose artist of the week and there is 10% off all the products associated with tat artist. What is also good for me in my view is that the site is a Smartcreds site so if you have a card/account and not old enough for a credit card you can still purchase merchandise of you favourite band. The Prices on the site are of a fair value compared to the street, although you do have to consider at least £2 p&p on to of your order. Over all this is a very good site and has a good range, some possibly not avalible in the shops, worth a visit at least.
If you are one of the privileged (!) few who is present on my ICQ or MSN Messenger (All folks with similar music tastes feel free to add me!) lists then you will probably know I’ve been decorating my room. A process which has involved a rather inordinate number of days spent staying in waiting for carpet that never comes with nothing else to do but write. But anyway, yes, as a result of redecorating I had to take down all my old posters and decided to replace them all with something a bit classier. Jaw firmly squared I set off a mission to find a large Mr Bungle poster and duly failed – in fact I was struggling to find anything worth having. The world only seemed interesting in selling me pictures of Eminem or plastic bimbos. However my darling woman reminded me about a certain www.pushposters.co.uk to which I duly browsed on over. While Push Posters sells things like badges, T-shirts and calendars their main bag of trade is selling music posters, quite a few of them as well. Giving in to my natural urge to search for Mr Bungle whenever presented with a search box on a music site I was once again disappointed. Life’s cruel eh? However after a brief stare at my CD collection I whacked Faith No More into the search box. One double take later I took in the fact there were several choices of Faith No More posters. “Hmm, that Angel Dust poster looks good – I’ll have that one”. Searched for Everclear, one dodgy one. Searched for Metallica, nothing great and of a size I wanted. Anyway, to cut a long story with a sharp implement (Save it – you’ll need it later in the opinion) I also ordered “Nine Inch Nails – We’re In This Together” and “Massive Attack – Mezzanine”. Although there are loads of posters for the more popular acts that tend to inhabit the top 40, you’re bound to find something you like in there – assuming you like music! I was in no rush
to get the posters, as when I ordered them I had too much wallpaper in plastic and not enough on walls but they still came fairly rapidly anyway. The posters were between £3 and £4 (Size is around 60cm by 80cm – divide by 2.5 if you are old and don’t understand metric :P) although you can pay getting on for £10 if the mood takes you with postage being £2 on top. Your posters come in a big old hefty cardboard tube sealed at each end with plenty of masking tape. Grab that sharp implement and with adult supervision if necessary (Excelle – I’m looking at you right now!) cut yourself a hole in so you can prise out the plastic end piece to get at your posters. The packaging did a great job of protecting my posters, no damage at all and you can even reuse it to store, um, really, uh, long spaghetti… Yeah, anyway… If you want any musical paraphernalia, but especially posters, Push Posters is well worth a browse. But did I settle for just three posters? No sir/madam, I did not but that’s a story for another opinion…
If you want a poster of your favourite band, then go to this web site. It is a site dedicated to the music world, where you can buy posters, T-shirts, keyrings, calendars and tour programs. I have been using this service for four years now to buy rare posters which would not be available in shops. I used to use the catalogue I got through the post but the online site is much better giving pictures of each item available, it also gives the option of online and off-line ordering. I first found out about pushposters through the adverts in the music magazines Metal hammer and Kerrang. The prices for the posters are on average the same as in the shops, but do differ depending on the size. T-shirts are usually around £12.99 which is quite good as some other sites can have them priced at a few pounds more. It has a very large range of products, much more than is usually available from most music shops and definitely a site to check out.
www.PushPosters.com claims to have the largest range of music posters in the world, now I know where people get those really cool posters that no one else has ever seen. I have used this site a couple of times and it is very good, since I have used it they have expanded their website to sell T-shirts, keychains and baseball caps (all to do with music I should assume). This is a new version of their site, which was uploaded on 19/03/2001 and so far has been very easy to use. ** The Website ** The first page that you see when you get to the site is usually the page, which will make up your mind as whether to stay or go. This homepage is very good, it is not too cluttered but it manages to display useful information. On the main page on the side column there are links so you can view you shopping cart so far, there is help on almost everything imaginable about the website, there is a link to join the mailing list (to receive updates about the website) and you can purchase and redeem gift vouchers. These are all neatly positioned in boxes, also displayed is their security stickers (this is a Thawte Authentic Site Secured by SSL). In the middle column of the page there are the following headings; Latest Releases, Mailing Lists, T-shirts and clothing, Keychains and 2001 calendars. • Under the Latest Releases section are the latest posters that the site has added to their site (these get changed at regular intervals). Under the Mailng List section there is a link to join the mailing list (it also explains why it is beneficial to do so). Under the T-shirts section are a couple of the available T-shirts that the site sells along with a list of the other clothing that they also sell (this is; t-shirts, long sleeves, hooded sweatshirts, hockey tops, baseball shirts, skinny fit shirts and many other items of clothing). Under the Keychains section are a selection of keychains tha
t you can purchases. There is also a link to the section of the site dedicated to them and other items such as wallets etc? I think you can guess what the 2001 Calendars section is, anyway it is a selection of the 2001 calendars from your favourite bands. On the left hand side of the webpage are the following headings; Poster Hangers, Win a Poster, Link to use We pay you, Discount Vouchers, Hot Searches and Top 30 Searches. These are links to the best selling artists on the website, you can see for yourself (these change every week depending on sales). You can also enter a competition to win a poster and purchase proper poster hangers. ** Navigation and Speed ** At the top of the webpage are the buttons; Posters, T-shirts, Calendars, Keychains, Tourbooks and Baseball Caps. When you click on any of these it will take you to the main page of their respective headings. When the page loads you will get an alphabet appear. When you click on any of the letters, or numbers a page will load with all the artists that relate to that particular letter or number. The search facility is just a very basic search, there are no advanced features. All you do is type in the artists that you are interested in and up appears a list of all of the items related to that artist on one page (if there are more than 12 items them more pages can be viewed by clicking the link at the bottom of the page). Overall I have been very impressed with the speed of the website, it has improved a lot since I used the site for the first time. The searching produced results quickly and the pictures that the website displays are not too big. ** Content ** The content of the site is very, very good. They cater for all musical tastes from you lovely pop rubbish like Britney Spears to rap from Eminen to metal and punk from the likes of Mettalica, Green Day, Papa Roach etc? They also have a lot of merchandise from less well known bands, which is nice for
a change. This content is updated as soon as any new items come into stock and the latest items are displayed on the main page of the website. The prices for the items are both displayed in British Pounds and American Dollars. ** Ordering ** When you first order an item you have to choose which country you live in, I should think this would deal with the way in which your order is dispatched to you it also sets you default currency to the currency wanted (either US or UK). Postage costs £2, but when you see the packaging that the poster comes in it is not too bad. The posters come in a very tough tube, which will protect them from being damaged. To order you have to register, which means telling the company the usual details about yourself like address, name, e-mail, phone number etc? You can also pay by the usual means of credit or debit cards. Delivery is quite quick with the order appearing within two weeks. ** My Thoughts ** This is a very good website in which you can find merchandise from almost any act, the more populor ones will have more items for sale. The best thing about this site though is the quantity of posters from small ones to absolutely huge posters that will fill your wall. These are all for sale at quite reasonable prices, you will probably find it hard to find the posters you see here anywhere else. Happy Shopping :-)
