    Has anyone ever done this? I'm looking for company that can take a digital picture & print it on fabric --- large enough for a BB. I've done some preliminary research but haven't seen where I can order directly.

    Is fabric an absolute necessity? You can have large-size posters made easily enough.

    Maybe Kinkos. They can print on canvas, which is technically fabric.

    What's a BB?

    You might entertain silk screen.

    You could print it on an iron-on patch and then put it on the fabric yourself. I made t-shirts that way once - they are expensive but it may work for what you are looking for.

    BB - bulletin board. I would preferred fabric, less chance of damage but may consider posters.

    I've not used this company, but it looks promising. $18 a yard is not bad for custom work! Let us know who you go with, and how it turns out, ok?

    Bet to you.

    I'm curious if you want one large BB sized picture on fabric or if you want fabric to fit a BB with a small picture repeated all over.

    Teachling - You've got me curious now. What are you planning to put on the fabric and what will you do with it on the BB?

    One large picture. I have several pictures of nature, we've taken on vacation & would like to use one as part of my welcome pack to school BB. Perhaps have something along the lines of 'Welcome to the wonders of ......' uhmmm, need to work on my slogan. Any way, that is sort of the vision. Would appreciate any additional suggestions. ;)

    You could also do a Back to School Power Point and use you pictures in it.

    Interesting that you suggest that--- I am planning on doing a DVD/movie that will highlight some of the things we did this past year, along with a couple of students sharing their experience in the 4th grade. Something to get them psych about 4th gd.
