I'm working on a 12x18 little league football poster for each player on my son's team. I got a great idea here last year. What'cha up to this year? I need some inspiration.

Last year for homecoming I made posters about that size for each of the senior football players that looked like giant trading cards. I have them on another computer right now that is busy loading video. I'll try to post one so you can see what I mean as soon as I can get it.

Here are some that I've made... The last few were inspired from the work of others I've seen here. Also, I didn't make it a large size when I made it, but should be easy to scale up.

Those are AWESOME Chris! Great ideas! Thanks for letting me take a look! I'll post what I come up with....I've got to make 20 so I'll probably have to simplify big time!

This is why I am addicted to this message board. Everyone is soooo nice and helpful. I have yet to see someone ask for help and not get a response. I don't post often, but when I have needed help, someone always jumps in to help!

Hey Tami - Thanks for sharing your ideas.....I didn't see your post until now! The lacrosse stuff is so cool! My boys play lacrosse and I don't see a whole lot of that around! Great work!

I'm glad this thread resurfaced. I completely forgot that I had promised to post what I had come up with.

This is a poster I did last year for the players to put out for Homecoming. They put them on the float and then used them for signs at the game. They were 16 x 20. I just wanted to do something simple that had the look of a trading card.

I do mine a little differently, they're more like a collage. Don't know if it's what you had in mind, but here's a couple from last year.



And a flag football just for fun:
