***Update: There appears to be enough interest for me to attempt to sell some of these so I’m figuring out the best & fairest way of doing it since the sizes are extremely limited. I will likely do some sort of online store so they can be purchased on a first come, first served basis. The launch date & time will be announced at least 24 hours in advance so everyone gets a fair chance. Like I mentioned the sizes are extremely limited & will likely sell out fast. I believe for all 6 pieces & all possible sizes, I have around 40 items left.***

If there’s not much interest I plan on giving them away to bands & for some contests on IVM & social media so now would be the time to act. They will not be reprinted.
