Article and photos by STR8OUT.
I have 20+ old bodybuilding pictures that I've found over the years and I wanted to turn them into Bodybuilding Inspirational Posters. The ones I have saved are all high resolution black and white photos so I'm guessing they would turn out ok.
I just ordered 7 posters from here www.posterburner.com. The 24 x 36 posters were $20 each plus $4.99 shipping so let's see how this turns out!
I ordered 7 of them on a "test run". Posterburner has a little meter that says what the picture quality will be when you upload your picture and all of mine said "great quality" but all of the images I uploaded were at least 2000 x 1000 resolution.
Posterburner has an "expert" go over each poster to make sure it printed ok. There is also a money back guarantee in case you really don't like it.
I just got the email that they shipped them as well so that is some seriously quick turnaround times for that many posters!! Ordered yesterday and shipped today.
I received the posters Monday morning but I didn't get a chance to buy frames for them until yesterday. Walmart only had 5 of the 24 x 36 frames in stock so I bought them all ($16 each).
The frames are pretty nice actually and you install the poster from the back (they are not the "c" clip edge ones). I mounted my favorite 5 posters and I'm keeping 2 on the side in case I want to mount them too.
They turned out great I think. These are really big posters and they don't look fuzzy at all. I didn't get to hang them up yet since I still have a few more machines to move in from my garage, I just haven't had time yet with how busy it's been in life! Here are some pics I took with my blackberry:
After reading STR8OUT's post on BB.com, I decided to try posterburner.com. I scanned some photos out of Arnold's bodybuilding encyclopedia, one of Arnold and another of his longtime workout partner Franco Columbu, two of my favorite bodybuilders.
I also added this text to the poster: "One Rule: Rack the weights you lazy shit!". Walmart provided the frame and the total cost was $45. See the pics below.
