Lotus Elan

Period Lotus Dealership Posters

PostPost by: elanfan1 » Thu Jul 02, 2020 6:32 pm

Some people expressed an interest in having copies of the Winner’s Choice posters that were displayed in Lotus dealerships I believe around 1971/2.

(NOW PRINTED AND AVAILABLE). These are the same dimensions as the original 20 inches wide x 30 inches high. It’s fair to say they look very impressive in the flesh.

These posters are printed on a great quality 250g polypropylene sheet which has a grey backing similar to a blackout blind. Noticeably high in quality in your hand, they are crease and tear resistant (but not proof! So still handle carefully please). They have a light satin sheen rather than being glossy. I’m really pleased with the result.

As was pointed out to me and brought here to give relevant details in this the first post - if your garage is a little damp it should not affect these posters unlike paper which may curl and get foxing marks.

I’ve investigated post and packing - they will be posted in a heavy duty cardboard tube with plastic end caps which should be ample to protect them through the various postal systems.

Prices:

One poster 2nd class no tracking in the UK £25.00

Rest of World Intl Economy no tracking £28.50 (unless you live somewhere odd where the Royal Mail charge more!). I have checked and these prices are good for France, Italy, USA, Japan and Australia.

If you want 2 posters I’ll do 2 for £45 incl post and packing in UK and £48.50 overseas. Payment by PayPal (as a friend to save charges please or direct to my bank). Send me a PM for orders and queries please.

I’ve just placed the order with the printer, I should be collecting them on Tuesday all being well. So next week I’ll be looking to get in touch to take shipping addresses and payments. Thanks for the interest so far.



Can I remind everyone that these are BIG, bigger than A2 at 20 inches wide and 30 inches high. They will look very impressive in a study, man cave or garage.

I’m hoping that next week there’ll be some feedback from recipients in the next week or so. With luck this will be positive and may encourage a few others to buy.

I collected the posters from the printers earlier this evening. I’m now in a position to collect dispatch addresses and the payment.

Will be in touch individually.

Thanks so far. Hopefully will start getting some feedback soon.

Cheers
Steve
