Denver Actors Fund opens online merch store: Posters, puzzles, shirts and more

poster1.4_CrossYou can order this poster online instantly, in a variety of sizes. Or you can buy it as a jigsaw puzzle. Note: If  you want a poster, we would prefer that you order a print directly from John Moore, or by using the PayPal link below. Simply put, we make more money for the Fund if you buy the posters directly from us. Here’s how to order. (All other gift items below are only available online.)

Poster Options


By John Moore

The Denver Actors Fund today launched an online store where supporters can get all sorts of merch, from posters to puzzles to T-Shirts and more.

The signature item is a poster made up of 134 members of the local theater community, all wearing Denver  Actors Fund founder John Moore’s cheap, and in some cases crumbling, sunglasses. (Order it here!) To date, more than 164 men, women and dogs have been featured in the series, with more in the cue. So, sadly, not everyone who has appeared in the series made it onto the poster. (Sorry to all. But … can Part 2 be far behind?)

So who is actually on the poster? See below for a full list.

You can also order the poster as a 10 x 14  jigsaw puzzle, with 235 pieces (and 134 pair of sunglasses).

The Denver Actors Fund’s new online store also offers the fund’s brand spankin’ new logo adorning all kinds of fun items:

DAF MERCH 1Here’s more fun:

*Key chains
*Commuter bags
*Water bottles
*Coffee mugs
*Trading cards
*iPhone Cases
*Spiral Notebooks
*Canvas Bags
*Tote Bags
*Neck Ties


Anything you order online today could be on its way to you tomorrow.

In accordance with the Denver Actors Fund’s proud FULL TRANSPARENCY mission statement, know that the online store keeps 80 percent of your purchase price. The DAF gets 20 percent.

Given that, please consider that we have also ordered 1,000 actual posters, size 20 x 28, and we are charging $20 for those. That’s $7.50 cheaper than the same size poster online, and all but the printing cost goes directly to the DAF — a much, much higher percentage of your purchase price.

So, as we stated in the caption above: If you want a poster, and time is not of the essence, we would prefer that you order your print directly from me … John Moore. Simply put, we make more money for the Fund that way. Problem is, they are ordered but not delivered yet, so they will not be in-hand for 5 to 7 days. So … if you need a poster for Christmas, order it online right now. It ships to you tomorrow. All other gift items are only available online. So order away. We’ll be happy with our 20 percent … and knowing that you are helping us get the logo seen.

To order a 20 x 28 poster print from John Moore, simply drop an email with your quantity and contact information to I/He/It (these pronouns are killing me) will take it from there.
