    I got stuck with a huge commercial framer lot (they went bankrupt).. now in ths business...have purchased several large lots since then. Mainly interested in wood moulding lots 10k ft - 100k ft (consider some mdf), large print lots, frames, mirrors, supplies (corner protectors, hangers, etc.). Based in New England..will travel anywhere if worth it. If smaller lot close to me..may consider. Obviously, looking for liquidation inventory. Cash paid.
    Email me here Ill provide cell phone/email.

    Well, we have been selling off our inventory of prints for the last couple years, but we regularly have prints that are offered to us in bulk. Let me know what interest you.... Themes? open edition? limited edition? sizes? quantities?

    How many prints do you consider a large lot? Do you buy multiple boxes of polystyrene moulding? By "frames" do you mean pristine manufactured frames or do you have use of second hand, damaged and odd size frames as well? I have to move one of my shops soon (they sold the building) so I'm looking to get rid of stuff.

    Hi Ed...so I suppose depends on type of prints quality. What I have now are tens of thousands of prints from publishers like Felix Rosenstiels Captiol Prints Galaxy etc. So depends on quality/cost/resale potential. Since I was forced to get into the secondary market..now have created outlet for thia stuff..so always looking for more inventory. Frames..thinking of ready mades..new condition..but if they are unique/old/vintage with dings..maybe. Willing to talk? What part of country?

    Thanks Charlie. I'm in Maryland. I think I've got somewhere between 100 and 200 prints. I don't know what's sellable and what's not. I've never been able to sell prints of any kind. I would assume that these are not ideal. I'm guessing that's a no to poly moulding? I have tons of that. The frames I've got are numerous but I've mostly been selling to artists who don't care about quality. Maybe I'll get some pictures together for you. Right now I'm moving it all to a storage unit.

    We still have people coming in looking for WW II aviation prints of Lancs, Spitfires and Hurricanes, by Coulsen Young and others. Rosenstiles and Solomon and Whitehead were great sources. Anyone got any?

    We do a lot of framing of WWII aviation prints, some signed by the original pilots, for a client who owns a large aviation company here in the Phoenix area.
    He collects all kinds of WWII aviation stuff, mostly U.S.
    Prints, jackets, and we just framed the actual nose art from a WWII plane for him.
    I have also framed some British and Canadian aviation pieces for him.
    I can check to see what his sources are, although I think that he buys most of his pieces at auction.

    Doolittle Raid..

    I believe that this is an American pilot who flew with the Canadian Air Force if I remember correctly. I framed it about 8 years ago.

    Hi Susan,

    But depends on what we can sell them for in long-term, if we can. We're usually looking at thousands/tens-of-thousands, publishers closing, contract framers, out of business. etc. Unless limited editions, or collections. Depends.

    What do you have?

    Hi Charlie,

    We have about 100,000 fine art prints and about 2 million postcard size fine art prints we are looking to liquidate. You can see the inventory at www.collotypeprints.com for a listing of artists and images. We are in New England as well and can easily palletize for shipping. Each image has a number and everything is clearly marked.

    Let me know if this is of interest to you.

    Thanks,
    Ken Green
