Since we will now have that ability to capture some of the great art on here for FREE, I have a question. It would be all well and good for me to print this stuff out on my home printer but can you take a file to somewhere like Kinko's and get a higher quality printing, maybe on some sort of art stock type paper?

I haven't seen seen any art yet and I can already picture my world improving!

I probably would have to do a out of house print place too cause I switched to a new printer and it bites. Too cheap and I do like to print out reference photos. It's just not good enough.

But yes, you can always email the photos to where ever you want or bring on any form of storage, but I don't know what the highest quality prints look like from the print shop.

We dont have Kinko's down here, so I dont know what theyre like. But as TeaKEY said, most print places will accept images in file format - be it on disc or CD, emailed, or USB drive/flash disk/jump drive thingy. And yes many of these places will have nice paper and high quality printing. Shop around, all of them should have display samples of different papers and print qualities.

I dont know who in the states does this, and all that. As I said above, shop around.

Yes, you will be able to do this! I have done many 11" X 17" posters for bands and my magazine. As long as the artwork was created at 300dpi and at the actual print size, it will come out awesome. I do all my stuff at Staples, but Kinkos and Office Max and places like that will be able to do it also.
Just a thought, but it may be wise to keep all the artwork at a consistent size (such as 11" X 17") because that is the largest size most print shops can do on their color copiers. Anything bigger will probably cost a lot more too!
This is gonna be cool!!!

Standard size sounds like a good idea, 11" X 17" sounds good too.

Hewey,

I'm working on another one, but it might take a while longer.

I think I PM'd everybody with Tikiracers details. Im sure I PMd some people multiple times, and I might have missed someone. If I missed you let me know and I will PM ya his details.

Happy, Happy, Happy!

Hey, am I too late? I have a photo that I would like to submit. I've got the Racer's contact info. So, I'll just shoot him the image.

Great idea!

Hi Hewey,

I am fairly new to Tiki Central, but would love to create an illustration also!
Is there still time? Is there a deadline?

Here's a link to see some of my art(pics on both pages)
