Pretty nice M posters and more.

I've been looking for stuff to decorate my garage and came across these awesome posters. Figured a lot of you would like them so thought I'd share.

M History: http://hiveposters.storenvy.com/prod...uction-history

M3 Generation: http://hiveposters.storenvy.com/prod...m3-generations

I just ordered those two, but there are so many other great ones too (non-bmw).

http://hiveposters.storenvy.com

I should note that I don't know how good the quality is as I've never seen them in person yet, but I'm assuming they will be good since the creator is a designer and its all his original work. When I receive mine I'll be sure to report back on the quality.

Update:

I did receive the 2 posters I ordered a few weeks ago, but was waiting to get them framed before I came back to post my review.



These prints are a good size to get framed. The quality is great, but they are printed from what looks like a high end consumer printer. It's not a bad thing in any way, but just worth noting that they aren't mass-produced poster prints. Resolution and colors are fantastic. If I were to nitpick, I'd say the light gray on the M3 poster bg is a little too warm for my tastes, but I'm a design so I'm far pickier about colors and stuff than most people. The BMW M one (right in my photo above) is fantastic as the background is pure white so I don't see any tonal issues.

Also worth noting that when seeing these two posters side by side, I much prefer the BMW M one over the M3. The M3 poster looks great on its own, but feels very plain next to the other. If you are going to have multiple ones side by side, I'd recommend grouping posters with a similar amount of "busy-ness" so they flow better together.

Would I purchase again? Definitely. It's very hard to find well-designed automotive stuff these days, especially posters. The designer who did these is very talented and knows what he's doing.

If the designer sees this, my recommendations:

Please roll the prints up so the printed side is on the inside. There were some light abrasion marks on one of the prints from pulling them out of the poster packaging. Also think the M3 poster would look cleaner if it was on white, not the light gray. Yes it makes the cars pop more, but I think the higher contrast of black and white makes the print pop more as a whole.

Awesome find! Ordering today... Fingers crossed on quality, but I have the same hunch given the seller is a graphic designer.

Thanks for posting!

Funny how they depict the earlier cars as larger when it's the exact opposite

does it bug anyone else how the m3 generation poster doesn't show the e36 or e30 special editions but it does for the e46 and e92?

I just spent over $400 bucks there...

Shirts, models, watch, posters, and a bunch of other randomness...

Make sure to type BMW in the search bar and see all of the other cool nick-nacks they have!

Is it just me or do those posters look like 8.5x11" pages?

Do they have the dimensions listed somewhere?


edit: found it... 16"x24. Not really large enough for my garage.

Mark, I like the designs but actually I think you can do it better. Time to step up!!!

I was wondering why there was a sudden increase in BMW poster sales.
I traced it back to here.

Thanks for the positive comments and to those who have made orders.

If anyone has any questions relating to the posters you can ask me direct.

I'm sure you won't have any issues with the quality.
They are printed on an HP Z6200 on 190GSM satin photo paper.
The level of detail and accuracy is very high, I design the posters as if they were for myself, something that I would want.

I can do them in any size. Standard is A2 420mm x 600mm
Shipping is pretty high because I'm in New Zealand so pretty far away from anywhere..



This is the level of detail to expect also


Cheers.
