Any ideas where I can get some decent office type posters in Dubai. Maps of Europe, World, the normal stick it up in the office type stuff. Have tried Borders, Magrudys (sp?), Geant, Carrefrour etc etc but am obviously missing something here.... Obviously K will be awarded for useful snippets of info... Ta.

No idea but for a thinking-out-of-the-box solution do a high res image search on google and take your selection of groovy images to one of those photographic shops that has an HP canvas printing machine. Shouldn't cost you more than 500 odd dirhams per print and you'll have something that no-one else has and on high quality canvas... If the printer really knows what he is doing he can emulate texture as well, but that'll cost ya more.

Thanks for the input.

SYB - Good idea. Got some of my own photo's blown up and they came out alright, so I might go with that solution. IOU k, gotta spread... apologies

Bubbauk - Got that one, but was hoping not to have to do on-line (too impatient ) but if nothing else comes through it may have to be that.

BC - Doh, never even thought to look. Was in there Sat as well. Will try again this weekend.

Thanks again to all and k duly awarded where poss...
