    I wish the rockabilly ball posters were in a downloadable JPG format – the artwork on the posters is always so fabulous – it would be great to be able to put those on my computer desktop, or print them out and put them up in for people to see!

    I just realized my previous post did not make sense. If I wanted a low quality copy of the poster I could just drag the image from the webpage onto my desktop. Reasons to not post anything until coffee has kicked in. I mean “I wish the rockabilly poster was in a high quality, maybe PDF format, so when looked at in large format it would not look all pixelated”. Ok, done posting now. :)
