QUOTE (Nomake Wan @ Mar 24 2008, 06:02 PM)
Part of the staff (Midnight Star, Perry and myself) have discussed this, and I have an alternative. However, this alternative is useless unless we get contributions from YOU ALL!

I work at Office Depot at the moment, which means I get a pretty good discount at the Print Center. We're fully capable of mass-producing posters with our equipment, including having them laminated if necessary. We've done test prints before for large-format printers and they always come out looking great (assuming the source image was of high enough resolution).

So here's the deal. I'm fully willing to get a whole lot of posters printed up. But I need artwork! This is where you guys come in. I know we have some artistic members here, so let's get this going!

Submission Guidelines
-Must not be copyrighted artwork. No screenshots from Wangan, please!
-Should be limited to cars which appear in Wangan Midnight.
-Should contain an appropriate backdrop (Tokyo skyline, Wangan Expressway, etc)

As for resolution, that I'll have to ask the print guys about. I don't know what DPI our printers are capable of, so I don't know what resolution they convert to. But my coworker knows them inside and out, so I'll ask at work tomorrow.

Likewise, the size of the poster will determine the cost. I'm fully willing to make the cost of the posters equal to the cost of making them. Hopefully that won't be much more than $15 each, but we'll see.

Oh, and don't worry about logos. I'm thinking of taking the "Wangan Midnight" Japanese logo and then adding Expressway to it, similar to what Perry has in our banner (only with more color!). These can be added on afterward, so yeah.

I take it it'll only be for you US people?

Harder to get posters sent out...

I've sent posters to people in Canada before, I can't imagine that sending internationally would be that much more difficult. It will increase the price to cover the cost of shipping, but I see no reason why I can't mail them out.

Okay, more updates. I talked with the guy who runs our Design/Print/Ship center on prices and sizes, so here's what it'll be (assuming I actually get art from you guys):

-2' x 1.5'
-$20
-Images should be 2400x1800 at least

I would like to use original artwork instead of copyrighted materials if at all possible. Especially since I'm not allowed to put anything copyright onto the machines.

.... I got "no" ideas......
I was thinking of resizing the main characters cars (Z, 964 and R) and put them side to side (like the first episodes)..... but I have to find a bigger background to put them in.

The image is 2400x1800 but on what resolution? (I was thinking 300)

What do you mean, "what resolution?" By my calculations, 2400x1800 would just about equate to a 2' x 1.5' poster based on the DPI that our printers use.

DPI stands for dots per inch, think of the dots as pixels. 2' x 1.5' is 24 inches by 18 inches. So it becomes apparent that the DPI is 100 because 2400 pixels are spread across 24 inches. So the dots per inch is 100 (pixel)

Yeah, I agree. I absolutely love the banners on this site. If you guys could make high-quality versions of those and make posters out of them I'd be all over that.

I doubt it's going to happen. These photos came from a professional artist. We were lucky to get his permission to use em. They're not loyalty free. I doubt he'd give us the high resolution pictures to sell.

Like I said before, the banners probably aren't going to happen.
If you want to buy those pictures without the logo though, here's the photographer's website:

If we do end up doing bumperstickers, its probably just going to be a logo
