We've just started offering our custom cryptocurrency and math based posters on https://bitographs.com. Each poster is composed of text as returned by the getblock API call that can be customized to start from a block of your choice. Commemorate that moment in Bitcoin history with the text describing the block in which it happened -- forming a nice looking, unique poster that also holds useful information!

We accept Bitcoin and a variety of altcoins as well as Credit/Debit cards, and we donate 5% of all sales to https://www.changetip.com/tipme/changecup which goes to help feed the homeless in NYC.

Thanks! It's printed digitally onto synthetic paper which has some nice qualities (like being waterproof and tearproof, and and it springs back to it's proper [flat] shape nicely after it's been in the tube during shipping).

All of the art is created digitally and printed via an HP Indigo 5600 (http://www8.hp.com/us/en/commercial-printers/indigo-presses/5600.html)

We take in what block height and color you want for your poster to be printed with and generate the data. So the idea is that you may want to commemorate an event that happened on the blockchain (e.g. maybe you want the information detailing the first Counterparty burn block, or sent a transaction to someone special, or got married [https://bitcoinmagazine.com/17066/first-blockchain-wedding-2/], or even the genesis block). We will take the block height and generate the text from the getblock API call (so it contains the merkleroot, hash, confirmations, height, time, tx hashes etc.), and then form it into the proper logo for you. As you can see from the images, the text is properly wrapped to form the logo so that you can actually read it and it makes sense (the text continues from one end of the space to another, and likewise from one line to another).

The Bitcoin poster contains the first 94 blocks worth of data if you start from the genesis block, so it's a nice little way for me to have a bit of Bitcoin history on my wall.
