Mondo, beloved art gallery and purveyor of gorgeous geeky film posters, is giving its fans an unprecedented gift for Black Friday: a chance to buy prints from a cache of posters that were previously sold out.

It’s the first time the store has allowed online buyers to participate in its coveted “flat file” sale, which is normally only available to people who can stop by its Austin, Texas, gallery.

According to a Mondo blog post, the sale begins at 10am CT Friday, when around 400 of the site’s poster designs dating back to 2010 will (briefly) be available for purchase. Fans will be buying slightly worn but mostly “near-mint” versions of the posters at their original prices—and in many cases, they’ll be battling to grab the only copy.

Although you can purchase as many different prints as you can grab (and afford), you can only buy one of each. The sale will run through Sunday at 11:59pm CT, though if this sale is anything like most Mondo sales, prints will probably go much earlier. From the announcement:

Fans can expect over 400 different prints sold at original cost from artists like Aaron Horkey, Tyler Stout, Olly Moss, Daniel Danger, Ken Taylor, Martin Ansin, and many more. With just a few of each poster available, you’ll want to be there when the Black Friday countdown clock hits zero.

The Mondo site will go down between Wednesday and Thursday to prepare for the holiday sale. 

That should also give fans plenty of time to prepare for the melee.
