I’ve been busy researching cool science fiction and space posters as part of a project I’m working on: re-doing one of the walls in DailyTekk’s video studio. The plan is to completely cover an 8×8 ft area with awesome, well-designed space posters. Yep, it’s a theme. And if that’s not a good enough reason for featuring these posters on a tech site, well… space exploration and science fiction alike are both two of the biggest engines for innovation in our modern era.
Now there are several places to buy posters online, but I really hate most of them. One of my favorite online stores, though, is Society6 (which is a great alternative to posters.com and All Posters). I bought an awesome (large) print there that I had framed and it’s hanging in my office right now. Aside from having some of the best designs, you can easily customize items to fit your specific needs (whereas posters on other sites might only come in one size). Plus, these prints are all super-high-quality: gallery quality Giclée prints on natural white, matte, ultra smooth, 100% cotton rag, acid and lignin free archival paper using Epson K3 archival inks (and custom trimmed with 1″ border for framing).
I actually put together quite an eclectic mix of sci-fi posters (it took me hours longer than anyone should have spent on a project like this) so I thought I might as well share it with the world in case someone else wanted to do something similar (or at least have a great starting place which they can then further customize on their own). I could see people wanting to deck out their man cave or maybe a movie room, a kids bedroom or a college dorm room with these posters. Maybe even an office?! Maybe not. Whatever your reason for looking, you’re definitely in the right spot for the best (coolest) Star Wars, sci-fi and space posters.
So this group of posters represents a mix of real-world space achievements (think NASA, astronauts, rocket ships, planets and the solar system) and fictional entertainment (think Star Wars, Star Trek and Interstellar). I’m not sure if your taste is anything like mine, but I tend to like bright colors that pop, geometric shapes and artistic stylizations that are a bit outside of the box (things represented in polygons, pixels, etc.).
One other important thing: all of these posters have ...
