I'm looking for some new posters and/or prints to liven up my new apartment. Are there any good sites out there? I'm interested in modern art, maybe something with a vintage feel to it like this. I don't want to spend a ton of money, but for the right decoration, I'm willing to invest some dough. Thanks for your suggestions!
I have stumbled upon an awesome poster, but most info is in Japanese. I would like to know if anyone knows where I can but a printout or lithograph of this poster. The poster in question is this one. From what I have managed to deduce it is actually a modern painting (judging by this article), so I figured that maybe it is available somewhere, but does anyone know?

I want to put framed print versions of various playing cards on my walls - a few from the 1960's era Mille Bornes game, some from a deck of WWII aircraft identification cards. How best to achieve this? I obviously don't want to lose much detail in the creation process. Are there particular scanners, printers, and paper best suited to the task? Perhaps something a professional photographer would use?
I'm folding a thousand origami cranes, and I'm starting to get curious about the patterns on the Japanese origami paper I'm using. I think I recognize a couple of them, but I'd like to know the significance of any you recognize: maybe they are traditional textile patterns or have other uses? Are they a certain flower, fruit, or season? Or maybe they are entirely made up for these packs of paper. [more inside]

I want to buy four or five interesting posters to fill up my blank walls in my new place and make it feel like 'mine'. I'd prefer to pick them out in person, rather than buying online. I'm especially interested in 20th century art (particularly abstract or semi-abstract), nature or urban photography, vintage maps and prints, and almost anything art deco or art nouveau. I'm also open to serendipitous discoveries that don't fit any of the above. Is there a place in New York that stocks a wide breadth of such things? [more inside]

We love art prints, but we signed up for some subscription series and have managed to buy more than we can afford to frame. What's the best way to store them to make sure they stay flat and pristine? Typical size is between 11x14 and 24x36.

I run a little, very informal art project on a tumblr blog which has gotten somewhat popular. Recently people have been asking if they can buy prints. I don't have any prints for sale right now, and don't know much about how to set up an online store, or if there's some other method that digital artists find convenient. Would anyone be able to point me in the right direction with this? [more inside]
I tried this last week but got no response, so I'm going to ask again in a somewhat more general way. I'm looking for a good photo printer that is reliable, takes lots of different paper sizes, doesn't cost a ton, and is relatively cheap to run. [more inside]
I need to get 4 roughly A3 sized giclée prints produced from my own digital artwork for an art show and I'm looking for a printing company in the UK. I really need them by the end of the coming week. I live in a rural area so I need somewhere that does mail order. There is a general print shop in my nearest town but I don't think they'll be able to do the quality I'll need from an ordinary print (although I could be wrong I've done this before) I've tried a couple of companies with other things but I was not happy with the quality of one and the other has still not delivered a week after their quoted turn around time. Does anyone have any recommendations?
I fell in love this week with Maria Primachenko who is just so so good, like staring at the pictures on my screen in wonder and delight, and I badly want a full-size or at least reasonably large print to frame - I love them all, so any of her works would do. All I can find are some dubious quality replicas at Wahooart, but I'll settle for postcards at this point. I can't find any of the books or albums about her on my usual book source searches either. Any ideas?
I need to copy a bunch of photo prints (estimated at 80) to have made into duplicate prints for multiple people. (Reason: I found my birth family, and they all want photos of me from throughout my life.) The photos are many different sizes and ratios, like 3x5, 4x6, square, 5x7, etc, and some have been cut with scissors into odd sizes/aspect ratios. [more inside]

I'm looking for a specific artist who produces some very creepy prints, but I'd also be interested in any recommendations on a similar theme. One picture was of a dead astronaut, skull visible in their helmet, being held up by a ghost/spirit. Another was of a post-Chernobyl creature made up of parts of other animals, mainly horses, with human body parts as well. I think there were Napoleonic zombies in a different picture as well.

I would like to cover an entire bedroom wall in color photocopies. I have put this off for years, for fear of destroying my rental suite bedroom wall with whatever adhesive I used, but recently learned that some people have had success affixing images cut out from color copies (though not necessarily entire 11x17 sheets) to their walls using aerosol starch, and later being able to remove them without leaving any traces; others have failed to get the images to stick at all using this method. Have you experienced success or failure in attempts to do something similar? What are my other options here? [more inside]

My wife and I went to the ROM in Toronto last week and stumbled onto an exhibition of Beethoven 1-32 by Jorinde Voigt. Does anyone know if it is possible to purchase a print or reproduction of her work? Both my wife and I were blown away by the delicacy and symmetry of the drawings.
What is this non-permanent printer ink I've received in a print? I didn't know that ink couldbe erased with a simple pencil eraser, but indeed the postcard-sized print I received on relatively heavy paper (possibly watercolor paper) was erasable with a pencil eraser. I only wanted to see if I could slough off a speck of dirt, and instead skin color came off the portrait. What's going on? Is this kind of ink going to fade and disappear in a couple of years even under glass? [more inside]

I'll be exhibiting a number of my photographs at a small gallery here in NYC in August. Between now and then, I need to have the images (which currently exist only in digital form) printed.

Hi all, I am a neuroscience student and I'd like to get my mentor a print of one of Santiago Ramon y Cajal's famous drawings of a neuron as a going away gift. Unfortunately, I can't find anywhere that sells prints or photos of these drawings online, but I was able to find a book at my university's library that has larger (12" x 24") high quality images of these drawings. My question: what is the best way to go from book to print? Are there particular scan qualities or types? Particular types of paper/material to print onto? Places (FedEx, architecture firms) to go to? Any advice would be really helpful. Thanks! Brian
Seeking NYC print shop recommendations for nearly one-off prints. I have about 20 pieces of different, mostly standard sizes -- nothing larger than 11 x 17 and B4 -- that I'd like to make a very limited number color prints of (1 - 3 each). I have an approximate budget of 10 dollars per print I'd like to hew closely to and a number of quality and care requirements. [more inside]
