im thinking on doing 3 separate ones in the house but the first will be in the finished basement - thinking the mountain lake for that one but i can change my mind if you guys like some others on those pages - so many to choose from

I've never seen one in person, but I could see it being a fun addition to a man cave.

For printing, I would stick to good quality stock. You might want to talk to a printer as different papers absorb ink differently, which can affect overall colour saturation. Generally speaking, you'll want a gloss finish and something heavy like 120-pound paper (or heavier). Heavier paper will also resist curling as it ages. Depending on how you're affixing to the wall, you might want to consider dry mouting the mural on a board first (think what you'd see on display at a trade show -- this need not be thick board or expensive). Again, it will help with longevity.

Pretty sure agent lives in southern Ontario. He's not getting much for mountain scenery.
