I mistakenly got the last poster I hung custom framed, which cost way more than the poster did. So what are my best options for hanging a poster nicely? [more inside]
Someone made a cool image illustrating some large number (more than 30 but less than 100?) of puns/proverbs/idioms in Chinese (I think Mandarin, but don't remember.) There was a key in English to each of the puns/proverbs/idioms, but the image had no words on it. Naturally, I lost the bookmark and can't find it now that I want to show someone else. Can you help?

I'm looking for a poster from the 80s of Steve Wozniak. Wozniak was depicted as a wizard holding an orb with lightning coming out of it. It may have come from a convention that Wozniak spoke at. Can you find a picture of this poster? [more inside]
A friend bought a '3D poster' that now proudly hangs in his office. It has become quite a conversation piece and he would like to know if it is based on a well-known Biblical painting or based on Greek or Roman mythology. He would like to know the story of what's depicted. Does anybody recognise it? Thank you in advance.

I'm looking for a poster size print of this photo. Any ideas where I could find one?
I want to buy a print online of a Klimt painting in the public domain (specifically, this one). Lots of places sell prints of this (and everything else under the sun), but it's impossible to tell whether there will be differences in the quality of the print from the jpeg. Are there any shops that make better prints than others, or things I should look for when choosing a print, or does it not matter?
My mom really likes this image of an elephant balancing on a ball and wants it as a poster for her office. Unfortunately, it seems to be out of print and I can't find it anywhere. She has rejected other similar images--she wants this one. None of the images I've found online are high-res enough to print as a poster. Anyone know where it can be found?
Is there a place that will let me create posters of my own artwork on their printers if I work there? Anyone have experience with this? [more inside]

We have a big, blank wall over the toilet in one of our bathrooms that several of us naturally spend, over the course of the week, a good number of minutes staring at. I'd like to find a graphically interesting, information-dense poster on some aspect of natural history, cosmology, geology, botany, etc. that I can put up there so that we can put this time to better use.

At least I think it's an album cover. Trying to identify the image on this poster. The photo is from the mid-1980s. It's a black line drawing of a Cerberus-like three-headed monster/dog on a yellow/gold background. Thanks!

My family has a World War 2 era poster of enormous sentimental value. We would like to have the poster properly framed for display in a way that will best preserve it long-term, and we would also like to have a duplicate or two made for other family members (since not everybody can have the original). Where do we go for something like this? [more inside]

As an illustrator/letterer living in Toronto and I want to start selling my posters, but I need to know how to handle the post-designing aspect of things (type of printing, best standard paper stocks, type of packaging, type of shipping/drop-shipping, pricing, ...). It is an overwhelming endeavor but I have to start somewhere. Any comprehensive, step-by-step resources on this sort of thing out there? [more inside]
So my friend just completed post for her movie and she asked me to do a simple poster for it. The movie is about how the growth of the feminist movement in Northern Ireland under British rule. I am giving her many options, some of which are specific to the time and place and some of which are more about women in general. Thoughts? [more inside]
I'm trying to make a 24x36" poster from some Excel tables. They're somewhat complex -- half-finished example here (Flickr link). I exported PDFs from Excel and used Inkscape to arrange them. But Inkscape can't handle this much stuff at one time without becoming unusably slow. How can I arrange the layout while keeping everything vector? [more inside]
I need this poster from allposters.com (I think?) of John Stockton shooting a basket while X Basketball player tries to block him. It's shot from behind from the other end of the court and a very famous picture... X Basketball player is Charles Barkley I think??? Is that a thing? Can you help me a) find this poster and b) get it shipped to me this week. Thank you very much.
I just want to design and print a poster online. Snapfish, Shutterfly, and Vistaprint don't seem to offer what I thought would be pretty basic design tools. I don't want to make the default photo collage; my idea was to use this kind of gridded layout, but with rounded corners on all the squares. Some would be replaced by photos, others would be white text on black. Where or how can I do this?

20 3/4" (w) x 28" (h) poster, can't afford to custom frame it. Which is better: 1) a standard 22x28 frame, with a little extra space (or matting) along the width of the poster; 2) a 24x30 frame with 1 1/2" mat on either side and 1" of mat at top and bottom each? [more inside]

I have some artwork that I want to put on coffee mugs for friends. Though I see a few DIY sites, I am not sure what resin to use to hold up in microwave so would like your recommendations on commercial sites. I may eventually do bulk orders if I decide to sell so if you have any recommendations that would be different for bulk orders, I am game for those suggestions as well. Vistaprint was around $20-25 after all was said and done. Thanks, and enjoy your weekend.
I really like those diagram posters they put up in fast food restaurants that show you the proper order of burger toppings, or the correct distribution of pepperoni slices per pizza. I'd like to see more of them, but Google is failing me. Maybe I just don't know the proper name for them. Surely somebody has a Tumblr of these or something, right? Ideally they'd include retro ones that go back a few decades. C'mon, hive mind, show me some taco assembly diagrams!
I'm volunteering for a local organization and we're putting on an outdoor gear swap in a few weeks. Somehow I have been tasked with creating a couple of posters to publicize the event. I don't know the best way to go about doing this. While I feel I have a pretty good eye for graphic design, I'm not sure about the best software to use for creating posters or how to find good images to include. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

I am decorating a new apartment and would like to put some nice pieces of art on the walls. I love some of the photographs in the Library of Congress collection and have thought about having them blown up and printed high-res. Which brings me to my question: What are the best high-res images (in the public domain) floating around the Internet? Or collections of public domain high-res images that I can turn into posters?
I'm a teacher and would like to make a few custom posters for my classroom for next year. I'm pretty decent with Illustrator but don't want to invest in it for rare projects such as this. I need something that will let me a bit more nuanced formatting than just a word doc. Any ideas?
I'm trying to brush up on my geology, a science that pretty much passed me by, which is frustrating when people I work with casually start talking about Cambrian this, and Triassic that. Where can I find a large poster / chart detailing all the geological epochs and periods? The chart produced by the Geological Society of America is a good start, but it would be more useful if it was, say, annotated with important events ("Angiosperms evolved here! Gondwana separated here!"), and it it had maps of the positions of continents on it at various times. Has anyone seen anything like this? My searches for geology posters have mostly turned up pictures of mountains, or "Geology Rocks!" logos...
I plan to go to Lowes or Home Depot and get the backing and plexi but want sturdy metal parts to make a very basic black 22 x 34 frame. The stores have the dimensions but the quality is so utterly crappy I want to get something sturdy. Many of my posters have the 22 x 34 dimensions but am going for cheapest online site that is dependable and then will build from the parts myself. I had found a site years ago but no longer can find it anymore. (Tried IKEA as they at least look a bit nicer but no luck on that dimension.)
