Asking for your Internet *Eagle Eyes*

OK, before the movie we went to tonight, I stopped at Barnes & Noble and purchased a 1000-piece puzzle entitled "Greetings From America." It's a picture of all the stamps in a series put out by the USPS in 2002, one for every state in the union.

Here's what the puzzle looks like.

http://gifts.barnesandnoble.com/Toys-ga ... 2Pid=18508

If you click on the image it will expand but it only prints out to about 2/3 of a page. I love the idea of completing this puzzle but I have a problem in that there is no poster of the completed puzzle inside the tiny mailbox-shaped box that it comes in. The only image other than the one I found on B&N to look at for reference is on the side of the mailbox and only a few square inches.

I'm basically looking for a bigger image of the puzzle that I can print out for reference. The one at B&N could do but it's really distracting because, for some reason, the image has all the outlines of each separate piece in it, so it's not very clear.

The puzzle is produced by a company called Sababa Toys. I looked there and could pull up a better picture either. If any of you could find a better picture than the one at Barnes & Noble's website I'd appreciate if you could post the link. Thanks!

.... Bingo!

It is on the US Post office site - it's a stamp series! This image jumps from smallish to really large, but it is a start...The second one might be better...

Cool looking puzzle ... I'd like to get one, other than B&N & USPS, can you get the puzzle anywhere else?

Thanks, Fran! It looks like it's the same size image as the one I found last night, only clearer.

Honestly, I'm not sure but if you go to http://www.gababatoys.com I think they had a list of all the retailers they sell their products to.

EDITED: Fran, I just now looked at the google link you sent me. I went crazy when I saw that one because the image was huge, but then I noticed it's different. Those stamps are 34-cent ones and the puzzle I have has 37-cent stamps and the images are different. Great find, though! I wonder where I could find that puzzle.

Re: Asking for your Internet *Eagle Eyes*

Hey - I think I found a 37 cent stamp illustration....

On a print preview, you can customize the size to about 25% and all the images fit on one page, but smallish.

This is fun! I love the internets!

Re: Asking for your Internet *Eagle Eyes*

The other thing I have done in the past - do a screen print (control + screen print key), paste it into Word and edit the picture, removing the extra stuff. Put half of the picture on a page if you like. You can enlarge it or shrink it as much as you want.

Wow, Fran, if you click on that image, it blows up beautifully!
