    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello all fellow PPO members,


    I need a little help. I have a 43 y/o Aunt who is very ill and will be passing away soon. She has been going through stages in here mind where she is re-enacting her youth and has been stuck in her 20's for awhile... going on 9 monthes now. She is in a nursing home in central Minny and as much as you dress it up, it's still (at least in my opinion) a pretty depressing place to be.

    She has been fixated on a snowmobile she used to own. Talking about it all the time and telling stories about when she used to ride with all my uncles and her friends.

    My mother and I want to get a poster/print of he old snowmobile, or at least pretty similar but have looked all over to no avail. I have personally searched the net high and low along with multiple retail outlets. My mother has done the same, but with no luck.


    I was wondering if anyone knew how to take an image off a website and somehow convert it into a large poster/print. Or if they new of any print place that could do it (national chain or local retail in Minny).

    These are a few examples of what I am looking at using:












    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated and price as you can probably tell is no object.

    I also would be will to compensate anyone for their time and effort if they have the ability to do this also.


    Thank you for taking the time to read this, as I dont normally ask for this kind of stuff .... but, she is a simple lady, who used to be very independant, who is a lot like me and has never asked for anything from anyone also.


    Thanks,

    mnjamie

    Sorry to hear about your aunt. I'm sure some folks on the site will be able to help you out. If you talk to the owner of the website or picture that you want you could get a higher resolution copy of the picture from them and easily blow it up to whatever size you want and make a print of it.

    First, have you found the picture of the snowmobile you are looking for?

    If so, next, right click and copy it. Transfer it to a portable flash drive, and take it to any print shop such as Kinko's. They can print it out any size you want.

    Or, email the webmaster or service dept of the website it is on. Explain why you want it, sometimes they will send you one for reasons like this.

    If you don't have the picture, we will need to know the make, model, year and color to help you search.

    First I'd like to say I'm sorry to hear about your aunt.

    Do you have any particulars on the snowmobile like make or color?

    I think color could be very important her.

    The three pic's I gave above would work great. I have some others saved also that could work. The main problem is the resolution quality going from the pic's on the website to a larger poster/print.


    Thanks to all that have already replied. Any other suggestions are very welcome also.

    shame about your aunt. i hope mine doesnt turn out like that.

    you might be able to make a fake one. like out of wood or something. it would be a ton of work, but it might be worth it
