I have a couple of those in the "catalog", they're of high quality. But I've always been partial to this one (non Box):

I have a slightly different version of these posters up in my office. Great conversation starter:

Wow that picture looks amazing. Do you do your own photography? The lighting is perfect!

No I actually have a buddy of mine who is in the movie industry and he gets to use studio equipment. There was no added lighting, in fact the pictures where taken around 2am. The original files for each picture was 16.7mp @ 15mb per file in Jpeg and 30mb per file Raw.

Ohh...and it has nothing to do with the equipment or the lighting.....My car is just sexy!

I've got the "ghost" one of the Boxster S where you can see through the metal to the interior, engine etc. It's a 987 but let's see if anyone will ever notice.

I also found a 14" Porsche emblem from Ebay for the garage.

Well, a really nice background always helps!

Great website for all Porsche Makes and Models..

I like to use this one for my desktop. This is where I found and fell in love with the RUF, RK Spyder. They have some great pictures of it and allot of earlier boxsters. This is how I was able to make my Sypder spears/stripes on the back of my car. I copied from them.

Do you know someone who gets you good deals on printing also? Any idea how much I would be looking at to get a custom poster printed?

Heres the best part...Ready...COSTCO.com. They print anything any size anytime all the time and they ship it to your house for CHEAP!. Check them out. All you have to do is upload the file and select what you want. You can even have some of them the same day, just select the nearest costco and pick it up.

TriGem... $10 for a 20x30 poster... Am I reading that correctly? That's a hell of a deal. For Costco members only I assume? For that price I might start getting funny posters of me as gag gifts... lol

Do you think a 6mp Canon will give a decent poster?

6mp should be just fine. The lowest I have every tried was an 8mp and it truned out great. I don't think you will haven any problems.

I was thinking about making t-shirts of my car just to wear to the gym. Everything at those prices are so tempting.

I actually think you can still place an order without being a costco memeber. I know other departments of their online store charge an additional % for non members. Not sure how much more though.

Nice. Any idea what font you used on your poster? I think i'm going to get a good shot of my car and make it look like an official Porsche poster like yours but have it say "Nurburgring sold separately."

Not sure about the font. I know its the same exact one that Porsche uses on their posters. My friend did all the work on it. I can find out if you like.

If you can find out it would help me out. It looks like the correct font and I want mine to look as professional as possible.
