See below how the final poster will look when hung alongside the ship chart (don't worry that's scaled down massively and the screenshot will be 5-colour pixel sharp on the printed version) ...
Unfortunately I had to get my print order in last week but don't worry, I intend to put another order in towards the end of the week/early next week so this can be printed on the same run (I'm also going to get some copies of the ship chart printed, in case you or others want to keep the original copy safe in the box. The added bonus being this version won't have creases etc).
Ok, so 14 months after I said I'd get the screenshot posters printed "next week", I do actually mean it this time (well, provided there is still /some/ interest in them).
At the back end of November 2019 Mark and I were starting to go off my concept for the poster that features on the right hand side above, so that's been dropped
in favour of the following, as we thought that presenting the screenshot in the style of the box-art would be more fitting/authentic:
The above version includes the image that Mark updated the other day (note the preview features a distorted screenshot, but the screenshot on the print-out would be razor sharp, with no 'smoothing'.
There'd also be potential to do an Electron variant if any fans of the Elk version wanted one (as Mark has also recreated the screenshot that was on the back of the Electron Elite box). I could even do a second processor version if there was 'demand' as Mark kindly updated the standard Beeb screenshot to add the extra colours from the Tube version - as featured on the Acornsoft Screenshot poster:
Anyway, price-wise, printed on decent 170gsm Satin paper - either A3 poster (Screenshot or Ship Indentification Chart) would be £8.50 each plus £4 UK postage shipped in a tube, or £16 the pair plus £4 postage (£20 total, PPG preferred).
Of course, if you're ordering the Acornsoft Screenshot poster - or any of the other posters that I've got available at the moment - the Elites could be shipped with those at no extra charge (though I did ship 4 x giant Acornsoft poster orders out on Wednesday afternoon).
Edit: These are the poster designs I made back in November 2019 (using Mark's images of course) ... I forgotten I'd done one for the Executive Edition too (which features a different, 'space age' font for the embedded 'Front View' caption).
Note that Electron Elite features the wrong screenshot - the version in the snapshot below is a monochrome adaption of the BBC screenshot, however Mark has since re-created the actual screenshot that appeared on the Electron box, so I'd update the poster design to use this version (I believe the Electron version doesn't have suns, unless you're running jms2's co-pro version of course!).
