Hey, all i did was scan the back of an A5 old 1960's comic onto my computer, i scanned it in at a wopping 360000 Pixils a square inch, This is the highest that my printer can print at and the bmp file took up 75mb's. Then beacuse the resolution was so much i could blow it up to A3 size without the quaility deterateing at all. At A3 the size of the image was around 260mb so make sure you have lots of space on your pc before you do something like this ^_^. Then i prited it off on A3 high quality photo gloss paper. The last thing i did was to stick it to my old cupboard Smiley

not very crafty i know.. but i am male lol

wow. That's an excellent idea.  I find myself buying cleap old comic books whenever I can find them because the ads are just so freakin fascinating!

My favorite one so far is an ad from a comic book from the 60's where for a whopping $9.95 you could send away for your very own pet spider monkey! No joke! It was like "It eats what you eat! Dress it in your doll's clothes!"

Amazing!

Thanks for sharing this idea!

holy cow-so i'm trying to imagine getting a monkey in the mail-i mean, was it just shipped in a box with air holes?!?  and what if the monkey was really freaked out-which it would be, after being in a box-did you just sort of open the box and stand back to see if he/she started flipping out in your kitchen?
wacky.

Do you rember the episode of Leave it to Beaver (I swear I watched it in re-runs, not quite that old...) I think it ws episode 2, Capt. Jack Was the name. Beaver sent away for an ALIGATOR....  
It was histerical, he kept it in the bath tub & charged kids to look at it. HE said if you put your finger in ther it wan't bite it off so much as it'll ssaawww it off. LOL

The poster looks great!! If anybody else likes these kind of images and doesn't have a mega-scanner, printer or spare pc memory (ahem...like me... Sad) to pull off a scan like this, you can download a set of free dingbats called Hey Kids! from a site called Letters from the Claw (just google the site). It has all these great 50s and 60s comix images in a dingbat font. Here's a couple more in case you're interested: (also free from Letters from the Claw): Horror Dingbats Eerie Edition (fab. Eerie comix grafix); B Movie Dings (scans from old b movie posters); another dingbat called Magic Catalogue (which is similar to the Hey Kids! dingbat only the images are like 60s how-to magic tricks!) by Daniel Gauthier (at Typoasis) and Monster Party by Mike Gaines (all your fave b movie monsters in a dingbat font!). (p.s.  Graeme: don't worry about it! crafty guys rock!)  Cool
