Hello fellow ballers,
Over the last while I've acquired a few vintage 1950s "Learn to Water Ski" brochures/booklets put out by a couple of outboard motor companies at some cost on eBay. I scanned a few pages from them in order to create some posters for my cabin which has sort of a vintage water ski & vintage outboard theme going on. The original images were pretty low resolution so to get them to where they look nice printed out at a way bigger size and much higher resolution took a TON of work and a fair bit of know-how in Photoshop. I spent several hours working on each of the three images I scanned to get them to where they are now. The SIA ad explains why it was so much work it in a little more detail. I have printed these images out to make 11" x 17" posters and the results are very pleasing and the images are fun.
I'm barely asking anything for the images which you can take and make your own posters from for display in your cabins or man caves, etc. I'm thinking that if a number of people are willing to pay a little for each of them I MIGHT make minimum wage for all of the hours I put into cleaning up, doctoring and bringing these images to a high enough quality for printing at small poster size. But that's not the main point really. The main thing is to make the images available to the water skiing community so others can enjoy them and maybe get compensated a little for all the work that went into creating them.
There are three images and the price is $4 USD each or all three for $10 USD. Fellow Canadians get them for the same price but in CAD. (Got to look out for my homies, y' know!
Here's the link to the SIA ad if anyone is interested to take a look at itski-it-again.com/php/skiitagain.php?endless=summer&topic=Search&category=Misc&postid=50057
