OK so for those who may have missed this thread, here is the formal thread offering super quality classic Mercedes Poster prints for Board members!
I have several large format HP Designjet plotters (4x now) I only use genuine HP Inks, printheads and Media. Many large format printing shops will use CIS bulk Inks for huge savings for example - but they will not last the fade quality that genuine HP inks have for example. To put this into perspective one set of genuine spare inks for one of my machines is over $1200! Therefore like most things in life, you get what you pay for. Using genuine inks etc prolongs the life of the machines and produces highest quality prints which will last for many, many years without fading. (200 years anti fade is what HP Say ) Gloss HP photo media is what I am using until further notice due to it’s superb appearance. I did also try a Pearl Satin media and didn’t really like the appearance of the print and it’s fragile nature which can be marked with the oil in your skin even. The gloss finish looks great and it quite robust. (Note for interior use only)
2no sizes of posters are available. These are A2 Size and A1 Size:
A1 594 x 841 mm 23.4 x 33.1 in A2 420 x 594 mm 16.5 x 23.4 in
Note that my advice is the larger the print the bigger strain on the original image to produce sharp results. In most instances A2 is more than suffice and gives best results IMO
Current pricing is as follows:
1 x poster = £26GBP + Postage
2x posters = £44GBP + Postage (£22 per Poster)
3x posters = £58.50GBP + Potage (£19.50 per poster)
£19.50 Per poster is the max discount for A2 sized prints
1 x poster = £44GBP + Postage
2x posters = £76GBP + Postage (£38 per Poster)
3x posters = £97.50GBP + Potage (£34.00 per poster)

Current selection is numbered as follows:
Dec 18 Posters Revision A.jpg
Note that this selection will be expanding when I have more time. Also – I am working on the fabled “Feuer & Seide” factory 500E poster to create a higher quality English “Fire & Silk” version which is a total start from scratch remake and will take some weeks before it is available.
If you want a large format poster of your own car – I can do that too if you provide a suitable quality image for me to use. Which will NOT be re-produced without your full consent.
All posters will be sent using international singed for priorty mail service. For example the cost to send a new 3 inch poster tube to USA is coming in at just £12 GBP currently (Including a new 3 inch postage tube). Purchases over 6no posters will also benefit from free shipping to most destinations. (UK – USA – Europe)
Posters are individually plotted off to order! So after an order is placed and paid for via Paypal’s “As a friend option” I will prepare the poster(s) within a few days at most and inform you when it has shipped.
Postage costs per country: (To expand as & when I am asked)

If anyone is interested in ordering posters please PM me! I hope members who start receiving their posters can also provide feedback
These are ready to mount with simple Blu Tack – no need to frame due to the high quality of finish (IMHO)
