This lab does great work. Tell them your file size so they can tell you what kind of quality to expect.

ran by the guy's place today, the car was "dirty" and took a few pics to see what file size we'd be working with....

Don't now how big you are looking to go but at www.shutterfly.com you go up to a 20"x30" for $23.00. Used them many a time.

Thats a killer price for 24"x36"....What doesn't that place have. They need a funeral home, a hospital wing, and a daycare and they're set! :D

That car pick is great, however if would be ten times better, and the yellow paint would "pop" more if it would on a different road. The gravel is NOT benefitting that car in any way whatsoever. Picture it with fresh black asphalt under it and it would be much better. Well...my :twocents:

I agree, but at the time he was pretty tied up with other cars in the shop, and we were just trying to get an image to see what quality we'd have.

from wal-mart:
For the clearest poster-size prints, photos should be at least 1600 x 1200 pixels

our pic:
4048 x 3040 pixels

I think it's going to be very stunning in detail for a poster print:)

we'll get it all hooked up next time he get's it ready for a car show.
