Default GatorBoard Pictures at Kinkos

I thought you all might be somewhat interested in this. About 2 years ago I took a picture of my car (then a 2002 TL-S) that everyone thought looked like a magazine shot. I enjoyed the picture so much that I wanted a much larger picture of it so I went to my local Kinkos and inquired about how to go about it. That is when I learned about gatorboard....it is like a really stiff/heavier styrofoam type of material. So I got a big picture made of my TL on gatorboard and then I had them laminate it.

I recently took a photo of my S2000 that I thought was "gatorboard worthy" so here it is on display in my room with my little limited edition 1/18 S2000:



Here is the Picture that I photoshopped first....messed with the brightness/contrast and added a border, and lastly a little S2000 logo in the corner:



Here is my first gatorboard picture, no photoshop besides the border and text in the bottom corner:





The price for each of these was about $95, the TL is 36 inches by 26 inches and my S2K is 32x26. Not too bad of a price if you really enjoy looking at your car.

very nice, but i definitely think the s2000 picture looks more like a magazine shot than the TL.

Instead of going to your bedroom to look at a $95 picture of your car, couldn't you just go to your garage and look at your actual car for free?

Nice job, they look great! I like the S2000 one better. It should have had its top down though.

Haha, thanks for the compliments.

Yes, I could just go down and look at my car for free but this way I get to look at it all the time in a much nicer setting than my garage!

As for doing it myself to save money....I would hate to see how that would turn out. I'm not very coordinated.

Holy crap.. maybe I need to make pictures for people for a living.. all of my art projects in college had to mounted in a similar way and it was waaaaaaay cheaper.
