Art poster buying

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?

Help me find this elephant poster

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?

Cool natural history poster for bathroom contemplation

Yellow album cover with three-headed monster sketch?

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!

Creativity made easy, I hope.

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?

Cheapest site for photo or art mugs?

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 want to see fast food diagrams.

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 need help creating some posters. I have no idea what I'm doing.

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!

What are the best photographs in the public domain?

I am decorating a new apartment and would like to put some nice pieces of art on the walls.

Where can I find a detailed poster explaining geological periods?

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...

Looking for cheapest place to buy metal frames parts for 22 x 34 poster

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.)

24x40 poster frame on the cheap and easy?

I have a 24x40 poster that I would like to stick in a frame. I am reluctant to go to our local custom framing shop, because while they do very nice work, the price is usually in the >$100 range, which is more than I can spend right now. I've done some searching online, and haven't found great results, plus it is hard for me to assess the good vs. bad websites to purchase. Any recommendations on where I can get this size frame (or another size that my poster would look okay in - does not need to be super professional-looking), hopefully for less than $50? I can swing by a store like Target, but don't want to get into anything too complicated like looking at flea markets.

It looks great but could you make it a little bigger?

I bought a print of a painting I love in the only format available: A full bleed art show poster on glossy 11"x17" bond. The painting reproduction is approximately the top half of the poster, say 10"x8". I can clearly see the grain of the canvas in the print, and it is entirely possible that the original painting is not much larger than the reprint. So my question is, is it feasible to have this print blown up to twice or thrice it's size without sacrificing quality? [more inside]
