All of the 139,000 items eMoviePoster auctions each year come to them from 1,993 collectors and dealers all over the world. You can consign to their three regular weekly auctions at any time, and they hold five major auctions a year with the best items that are consigned (and all linen-backed posters) in those auctions. Their next major auction will start June 8-20. The deadline to consign to this auction has now passed, but their next one will be in mid-August, and it is not too early to consign to it. Go to their Consign Page to learn about consigning to them, and what makes them different from other major auction houses. They have no buyer’s premiums whatsoever and they allow all their buyers to combine purchases over many weeks, which saves a great deal on shipping.
