I'd like to print a very small run of posters (maybe 15 each of 6 or 7 different, related designs) soon. What's the best way to go about this? [more inside]

Sometime during the summer of 2008, a website popped up with maybe 10 or 12 political, printable posters. Does anyone still have the link? [more inside]

I have recently run across a large cache of hong kong film posters from Thailand circa 1970s. I am thinking of buying them and am trying to research if they have any value. I am not getting great results from the internets. Any brain power out there that might point me the right way?

Where can I find this poster
from the movie 'Qui etes vous Polly Magoo?' without paying $900
? Also can you recomend any movie posters that have similar design (in terms of style)?

Anyone remember a website that had lots of old movie posters which I think were possibly from Russia but of American or western films? [more inside]

With the joyous event of the election of a Rudd Labor Government here in Australia, I'm thinking of commemorating the win by taking the front page of a few newspapers and turning them into one of those hard wood posters you can buy from some music stores and poster shops. I am reliably informed that this process is called 'poster boarding' and from the few places I've looked at who do it professionally, this is going to set me back anywhere between $100 to $300 per poster.
So I'm wondering if this is something I could do myself. If so, what do I need to buy, what do I need to do (a step by step process would be nice) and, importantly, how easy/hard will this be for a first-timer to do?

My boyfriend got a cool promotion but he's keeping the same office so I want to celebrate by giving him a new framed poster. Please suggest some good places where I could order one online. (The poster, not the frame.) [more inside]

I have some jpeg images that I'd like to blow up and print on glossy paper to frame and hang in my room. Is the easiest/cheapest way to go to a local kinkos or copy shop with a usb or are there cheaper alternatives to printing poster sized prints online?

Anyone know of any good large-format (5 foot by 3 foot poster) printers in the Portland, Oregon area? I've been burned by the wrath of Kinko's too many times and I need it within 48 hours. I know the right outfit could do it in just a few minutes, and I don't care what it costs. [more inside]

Movie posters normally carry images that look hand-drawn
. Even 'real' landscapes
, or people
, are frequently represented in this style. Why do studios do this? And are these images really drawn by hand, or are they just photoshopped photos? [more inside]

Frame-wise (or not) what's the best way to display posters like these
(sized 12 x 18)?
I just bought three of them and it feels wrong just to put push pins through them.

William Eggleston, man I love this guy. I've been to a couple of exhibitions of his work in London and thought they were great. His use of colour in documenting the South is astonishing. Where can I buy posters of his work?

On the London tube there are posters called "Above Ground" that show an above ground view of the route of the train you're riding in relation to various landmarks, museums, major streets, etc. Does anyone know if these posters can be viewed online somewhere? [more inside]

You know those posters put up en-mass on hoardings (the plywood around building sites and whatnot). There are some really cool
ones for a certian upcoming movie I've spotted around Toronto. How can I get my grubby little hands on these? It seems like with so many printed and put up, it shouldn't be hard. Just peeling them off the wall never works.

I am trying to remember the name of a free little Windows app that takes a .jpg as input, and supersizes it, splittling it into 8.5 x 11 (or whateve size) .pdf sheets.

We're looking for a cool poster of the periodic table. This
are considerations, but we'd rather have something more interesting. A poster of one of the early designs would be especially neato.
