Looking for suggestion on who to use for "inexpensive" decent quality sports poster for high school soccer. Boys soccer senior night is in October. Would like to give each senior a poster of themselves, with their name, number and position on it as well. Has anyone done anything like this? Your experience would be greatly appreciated.

John 7D, gitzo and stuff

John,
Here's some from a member of POTN. I haven't used any of his stuff, but I do like the posters.Action FX (external link)

Here are some others:

Artistic Action (external link)

Easy Digitals (external link)

There are a lot of other samples here on POTN.

I also use Artistic Action for templates but the cost can really add up depending on how many you purchase. The good news is that they can be used year after year and are easy to modify. If you are not familiar with Layers, templates is the way go and the also makes learning the basics of layers easy.

For affordable posters I have always used Winkflash.com. The quality is actually really good for the price.

Can you take my picture on some railroad tracks?! No, that's illegal now. I'm really sorry.

Mike - Thanks for responding. Cost is a big factor here. Will look into this. Was looking for something simple and inexpensive as we will be "giving" these to the boys.

Kompressor - Thanks. I don't think I have heard of this site before. I will take a look and see if it is something that will work for us. I appreciate your help.

Even if you were to purchase only one from any of these sites, It will give you a good base for learning about layers and soon you will be designing your own. Once you have something designed, I recommend Costco for inexpensive, yet quality printing. If you have a calibrated system, you just need to tell them to turn off Auto Color Correction. Go with luster finish instead of glossy.

A 16x20 print at my local Walmart is only $6.99 for the 1 hour service. It's a great deal for these types of Senior gifts that you are looking to go inexpensive. Designing the poster can be easy or complicated. I use Elements not the fullblown Photoshop and get good results.

+ Easy Digitals has some great poster templates. You can watch tutorials she Kim Kunkel has that for the most part posted on You Tube. So if you loose your place or way you can watch the video over to regain your perspective. I would also suggest you check out MPIX for printing, at www.mpix.com (external link), they do good work their quality and selection of papers and printing options is awesome.

Richmond Pro Lab has posters built into their ordering system, have yet to see any but from everyone who's ordered and had them drop shipped they tell me awesome. My cousin ordered some prints, threw one in for free and after seeing it the requests have been coming in to shoot this and that from those he showed, so does the trick. Searching around there are some REALLY bad ones out there, same with memory mates...so if you find a good one grab it quick.

A few years back I did basketball photos for my son's HS basketball team, they were hung on the wall of the gym for the season. The booster club purchased them to give to the players.

Click here to check them out (external link)...no cookie cutter templates were used. :lol:
