Does anyone have a source for graphics that are up to 12 feet long?

Got a customer that wants to have a 4 x 12 of a waterfall.

How do I get these people?
hmm... the only thing I can think of is that they might have to commission an original painting for something that big... glad they're yours not mine! I'll keep an eye out for anything like that for you Eric. Good luck finding it.
Eric -
I think Lowe's ? sells scenic "wallpaper" that comes in large sheets (4'x4') that will do a wall area of 8'x12' They have several scenes - beach, forest, jungle (which had a waterfall) It has been a couple of years since I remember seeing them - maybe a google search of wallpaper mfg's or graphics shops will turn up something.
Find someone with a wide format printer.

One of our customers in New York has the capability, I'm sure. Whether they'd be interested or willing to do it I don't know, but here's their contact info:

PS - it won't be cheap ;)
My suggestion would be the wall paper. There are some wall paper manufacturers that produce mural sized scenes. Try seaching on the internet or talk to your local paint and wall paper store.
I ran across one of these in Texas about three years ago that the owner had that resembled a framed print. It looked great but he was a bit embarrased when I told him how he had installed it when it took up most of a full 8 x 12 wall. He had added the frame on top of the wall paper.

Any idea what the budget is? I have several photographers for whom we print with gorgeous waterfalls - we could print on canvas - wouldn't be cheap but would be stunning. Don't hesitate to call me to discuss further -

Give me a photo and we can do it at my shop. It would cost between $720-$1200 A little more info is needed for anyone to give a good answer. Do they want a photo, a painting, a drawing? What kind of paper do they want it on, or do they want canvas? What's the budget? Do they want a rainbow next to the waterfall?
Thanks everyone for directing me toward wallpaper sources, I think they will find what they want there. Tim and Hanna, those links were perfect.

If they don't, I'll be contact some of you to talk about custom stuff.
