I am coming down off of a big E3 highthis week! There were lots of great announcements, but I'm especially excitedabout Nintendo announcing two new Metroid games, prime 4 and Samusreturns; or another, another Metroid 2 remake.
So I thought this would be a goodopportunity to highlight part of my collection, this Super Metroid print.
Thisis the only video game poster I have hanging up in my living room.
It's alimited edition, It's hand numbered and signed by Samus herself.
I have number688 out of 2,000.
Not only is it one of my favorite pieces of official Samusartwork but another really cool feature is that this poster glows in the dark.
I'll show you more of that at the end of this video.
I was lucky enough to pickthis up from a good friend of mine but originally this limited edition printwas only available through the Nintendo Power Supplies Catalog.
I pulled out myold catalogs to show you more about it.
This was featured in the winter 1994edition.
I did glanced through the other catalogs and I didn't see it listedanywhere else so I think this was the only chance to get one of these.
It wasoriginally listed for $15.
Now I did order other pieces through thesecatalogs.
If you guys have any interest in that, show it in the comments andmaybe in a future video I can go through the catalogs and show the itemsthat I still have.
Now let's take a look and see what it looks like in the dark.
The catalog claims it's 10 times cooler at night so let's just see what youthink.
As much as I love this poster there aretwo things that I don't like about it.
If you can figure out what those two thingsare, please feel free to comment.
And I just want to thank you once again forjoining me in this quick video.
I hope it was enjoyable and that you learnedsomething new maybe.
I am hard at work at finishing other videos so if you'd liketo see more, obviously subscribe.
Either wayplease have a great day!.
Several customers orders are placed into a single group, for greatest efficiency once assembled, the jobs are sent to plating.
Here, the plate maker sends each job to an thermal infrared plate imaging machine.
Aluminum plates containing an infrared sensitive emulsion, load into the plate setter where it wraps around the imaging drum.
The drum spins at a dizzying thousand RPMs as an infrared laser exposes an image onto the plate.
From there, the now exposed aluminum plate moves to the processor, a four-step treatment is applied: developer chemical, water, buffing and gumming for further scratch protection.
A place for each color in the CMYK file are printed for transfer to the press.
RushMyPrints utilizes three Komori offset printing presses for all of our printing.
Maxed out, the Komori press can print a stunning sixteen-thousand sheets per hour.
The Pressman takes the aluminum plates and hangs them on ink units each corresponding color.
Cling sheets are fed from the back of the machine.
Printing jobs in California can be tough to get done on time, which is why it’s important to have an expert printing service and commercial printer available to you at all times.
A series of conveyers and rollers rapidly shoot each sheet under cyan, magenta, yellow, and black ink units.
The rollers even distribute shoot ink to the plates, which offsets the ink to a blanket roller than in turn applies ink to the paper, coated sheets are then fed through aqueous coating unit and run across heating elements for drying.
Every few hundred sheets, the pressman pulls a sheet for analysis.
He scans a color bar along the bottom edge for color accuracy.
Visual inspection is also needed to check for highest quality, after printing the sheets move to the cutter.
A large industrial cutting machine slices up to 1,000 sheets.
Each job is then separated for transfer to their Particular finishing processes.
From there, your booklets are placed into a machine for scoring and folding.
A conveyer allows for continuous loading of jobs for maximum efficiency.
After the worker activates the machine, each booklet shoots towards the folder plates where up to four folds are applied along with scoring.
The final step is stitching.
The stitcher loads your booklet pages sequentially into the saddle stitching machine, the gathering chain pulls each booklet to the stitching unit, which places two wire stitchings along the edge.
The booklets then move to the trimming unit, slicing off the remaining edges.
The result? A high-quality, quick turn booklet ready to ship via our in-house mailing facility to your customer’s door.
