I bought a post called Room Rulez from you guys, and i love it. people come in my room and read it and they are like WTF and they walk out.
Thanks for making GREAT Posters

Guys, I have an original “Have a Day” poster. I’ve always had a room in my home designed with smileys, and your poster has been one of the most talked-about pieces in my collection.
I got it a long time ago, sheesh I don’t even remember when! Either way, it sits right in front of me everyday and as a graphic artist myself, it’s a delight to see that you guys started from nowhere and got somewhere with this very piece. Makes my poster that much more special. Thanks guys.

I would like to go on record as saying that Mantis Design is the most polite and courteous website on the entire inter-web. Mantis
Design has consistently gone above and below what is necessary and culturally acceptable, and as an unstoppable, self-perpetuating energy…will continue to do so indefinitely. Mantis Design will open the car door for you, will pick the right wine to match your dinner, and will make sure YOU are satisfied before Mantis Design is. Mantis Design IS. And you ARE. So give Mantis Design a call, or wait a few days and then call. You won’t be sorry.

Actually don’t give Mantis a call unless absolutely necessary. But thanks for the sentiment STIVC@!

I want to know if you sell yours posters in my country, Perú, otherwise i will have to travel…

do you still have the poster what is sex
on June 7th, 2006 at 10:24 am
That poster was discontinued, and we doubt it will be reprinted. We don’t have any good digital files for it, which is why it’s not in the Manti-morgue.

I got an older version of the “Have a day” poster.
I wonder what “avehay a igpay atinlay ayday” means?
on August 9th, 2006 at 7:53 am
UPDATE: We now have “What is Sex?” on our site

omg! I’ve seen this in our school (have a day poster) .. can I buy it from finland?
on November 17th, 2006 at 4:14 am
Can I buy posters from Japan? If I could, please tell me how to.
on December 1st, 2006 at 9:46 am
Unfortunately, I don’t think that you can buy our posters in Japan. Apparently our quest for world domination has yet to be fulfilled.

Hey you two, I saw a calender that you made up of beer styles. Is that calendar available anywhere in Denver?
on January 19th, 2007 at 9:34 am
Hey Holly we don’t do that calendar, so I can’t help you with that one. Interesting though. I’d love to see it if you find a link send it this way!

I have recently purchased your “what is drunk?” poster and I love it. Being an avid drinker here are two good ones (I think) that I have uttered when intoxicated.
“Rye not?” -in response the question “want another glass jeff”?
“On a scale of 1-10… I am shitfaced”
If you make another one maybe those might come in handy
on January 26th, 2007 at 10:08 am
Thanks Jeff – we’ll keep those in mind!
on February 11th, 2007 at 11:57 am
i saw the pictures of Periodic Table Of … and ican’t see all of the picture.
Is it possible to you, to enlarge the pictures for a better view?
on February 21st, 2007 at 9:44 am
No, Kevin, what you see is what you get. The closeup should give you a good idea of what’s going on.
on May 17th, 2007 at 2:06 pm
I would like to know if there is any possibility of buying some of this posters here in Brazil.
on May 29th, 2007 at 1:24 pm
I was curious, i saw a poster of yours at my doctors office today,”it was about difficult people”, and it had an UNKNOWN author……do you guys still have a printing of that poster. circa 1998. If so i need it..it’s the story of my life
on June 4th, 2007 at 11:16 am
Yeah that poster was made a long time ago, and we discontinued it. It was a great quote, and since it’s anonymous, you might be able to find it on another poster somewhere. Good luck!
on August 7th, 2007 at 1:52 pm
Gerald is the nicest poster designer I have ever met. He is selling me my first Apple.
on September 1st, 2007 at 5:27 am
Hi there! Im from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and saw one of your posters titled “What is Drunk?”. I loved the captions on it and was wondering if its possible to mail order them or any other posters for that matter?
on December 2nd, 2007 at 5:51 pm
Es mi imaginación o falta una foto de los cazadores de zombies?, había dos donde salen Maribel y Brent…y ahora solo veo una, aun asi…felicidades

I have been looking all over my area for the 2008 Calendar of the smiley face, and I can not find it no where….can you please tell me where I can find this calendar…it would make our family very HAPPY=)….we are in the Dayton Ohio area…(Huber Heights, Ohio)..Thank You So Very Much…..The Malarky’s
Please let me know when the Have a Day Calendars will be back on the market.
I am a teacher with a Smiley Face classroom theme. My students love your Have a Day and Have a Night posters. They also love your calendars and are so very upset that there is not a 2008 version. They continue to look at all of the past year calendars that I have saved.
on April 8th, 2008 at 9:31 am
i am interested in smiley calender or posters but unsure how to purchase or obtain.
i live in south lappland, sweden.
can any smiley help?
on May 4th, 2008 at 7:11 pm
Would you please tell me where I can buy WHAT IS LIFE?
I can’t find the poster here!
Thanks a lot
on October 30th, 2008 at 4:33 am
I’d like to know if it’s possible to ship Mantis Design posters to Brazil.
on October 30th, 2008 at 6:08 am
Unfortunately we do not ship posters to Brazil.
Also, What is Life has been discontinued, but I am hoping to give it a make over and re-release it.
on December 9th, 2008 at 10:55 pm
Are you going to publish a 2009 have a day calendar???
on January 4th, 2009 at 12:44 pm
I purchased your 2009 how to play guitar calender last night at a Hastings bookstore in Alamagordo. I am really impressed with it and would love to get permission, should my students ask to xerox the poster attached to the calender, or perhaps access to a place I can send them to. Yes, I know that they can all buy the calender, but I teach in an impoverished school district (El Paso Texas) and that is simply not an option for many of them. You can see from my website (hosted generously by Michael Daly of http://www.Sheetmusicdigital,.com) that I do everything in my power to put music in students hands. Is there anything you can do to help? Great calender by the way. I fully expect it to disappear from my classroom at least twice and am kicking myself for not buying multiple copies since I should have thought of that when I bought it (sigh)
on March 4th, 2009 at 1:01 pm
Back in the days of Trent Graphics, I was one of the many lowly matted prints slaves. My best friend, Olivia, worked there for a long time. I, too, had an original ‘Have a Day’ and some sort of Mixed Drink poster you did way back when. It’s great to know you’re still producing your insanity!
Thanks for the memories and have a _____ day!
on April 2nd, 2009 at 3:58 am
I see you may be redesigning and re-releasing the “What is Life?” poster. Please do! I absolutely love it and can’t find one anywhere. I will keep checking back here.
on May 14th, 2009 at 3:27 pm
Do you still produce your Periodic Table of Wine poster? I saw it at a wine tasters event and would love to purchase it for a friend asap. It’s terrific.
on August 15th, 2009 at 9:42 am
Where can I get a “What is a Drunk?” poster? Never laughed as much as when we seen it in a local pub.
on August 25th, 2009 at 6:39 am
This is a tough one, because it’s been out of print for awhile. Maybe here?
PS I am gonna try and get this one republished at some point.
on September 11th, 2009 at 9:48 am
Me too! Want to get “What is drunk?” poster. Discovered in local pub.
on September 14th, 2009 at 7:46 am
Would you please tell me where I can buy “WHAT IS LIFE?”
I can’t find the poster here!
Thanks a lot
on October 5th, 2009 at 9:28 am
Yeah that poster is out of production, so it’s gonna be hard to find any.
on October 6th, 2009 at 11:47 am
Please put me on the list to purchase 2 copies of the Periodic Table of Beer Styles.
Any estimate of publication?
on November 24th, 2009 at 10:59 am
I recently saw a poster entitled “What Is Life” by Mantis Design. Is it still possible to purchase this postyer. It is rare and beautfuly done. Claude
on December 14th, 2009 at 6:29 am
I was down in Atlantic City and saw a poster in a bar in the Tropicana. It had all quotes concerning drinking beer. Looked at the bottom and lo and behold it said town of water gap pa. I am from hackettstown. do you still have that poster? I would like to purchase some of them.
on December 15th, 2009 at 11:23 am
That poster is called “What is Drunk?” and is no longer in print. I am hoping to re-release it soon.
on December 17th, 2009 at 5:30 am
Have come across you old poster “Periodic Table of Mixology”.
Is it still available ???
on March 4th, 2010 at 7:13 pm
hello.. do you still have available the poster Periodic Table of Mixology……and if you do…..is it possible for you to ship it to seattle before march 18th?
Sent an e-mail about this, might as well post here as well. Looking for the “BIG SLICK” poster that has about 35 different nicknames for poker hands. Hoping you guys still have it somewhere.
on April 20th, 2010 at 11:02 am
I have some filter turned on…
on September 10th, 2010 at 6:28 am
Do you plan to re-release the Periodic Table of Beer Styles?
I would really like a copy or two, maybe three, maybe more.
on November 21st, 2010 at 2:08 pm
I see you have committed FB suicide. I’m about there myself!
Anyway, saw the poster at Spencer’s yesterday and obviously thought of you. Do you still want to use our attic and the boots for a pic for the haunted house poster?
Come see us after turkey day!

on May 27th, 2011 at 9:08 am
The periodic table you have here is really super.
I’m from Brazil, South America and was wondering whether I could copy/past the periodic table of beer style into my blog http://www.cervejadaoficina.blogspot.com/. May I ?
on May 31st, 2011 at 7:15 am
Its ok to post our designs on your blog so long as you put a link and state that it is “courtesy Mantis Design” and note that you are not the copyright owner of the work.
on August 5th, 2011 at 6:03 pm
Saw your “Have a Day” poster in a restaurant and have to have it! I am a teacher and it would be perfect for my class. Cant find it anywhere! I went on the website recommended and they dont sell it. HELP!
on August 31st, 2011 at 5:54 pm
These poems are street signs on the highway of living life.
on July 17th, 2012 at 3:33 pm
Any chance there will be a Have a Day calendar in 2013? I miss it terribly!
on October 8th, 2012 at 5:29 am
Looking forward to Have a Day & Have a Night posters coming back! With the current economy, we can all use a laugh and this poster does it for everyone. My teen son had it in his room for many years & now with him leaving the nest, I would like one for my workplace but it would have to be about 20 in wide max so I can hang it where we all can get a laugh!
