I'm a web developer - but I've been asked to make a graphic for a table top trade show banner.  The final banner is 33"x78".

The printer said something about being able to use 150 dpi - but I can't find any directions on the web.  The printer is gone for the week-end and the project is due early next week.

Can you tell me where to find a stock image large enough to use on a 33"x78" banner?

I use istockphoto.com all the time - but even their XXXLarge photos are only 12.5" wide at 300 dpi
         XXXLarge   12.5" × 18.7" @ 300 dpi

I think he is saying a 12.5"x18.7" photo at 300 dpi would translater to 25"x37.4" at 150 dpi.

Hope you can shed some light on this for me.  Appreciate it.
