Homicide Detective Poster for Police Detectives. This Homicide poster features a skull on a Ace of Spades playing card design on a grunge background. What is considered the dead man’s hand card combination of today gets its notoriety from a legend that it was the five-card stud hand held by James Butler Hickok (better known as “Wild Bill” Hickok) when he was shot in the back of the head by Jack McCall on August 2, 1876, in Nuttal & Mann’s Saloon at Deadwood, Dakota Territory. Reportedly, Hickok’s final hand included the aces and eights of both black suits.
Paper options: When buying this poster you can choose between the premium poster paper and the vinyl self-sticking poster paper. The 2 paper choices are very different and serve different purposes.
Vinyl Self-Sticking Paper – The self-sticking paper is vinyl and it adheres to your wall or any other surface much like a sticker. Just peel off the backing and slap it on your wall. It can be moved as often as you want and it will not lose its ability to stick. The vinyl will not be as brilliant looking as the premium poster but the advantage is you will not have to buy a frame.
Premium Poster Paper – American made next-generation 8 Mil Production Gloss Photo Paper that produces amazing prints. The gloss finish provides a wider color gamut for sharper details. This is not the cheap and thin paper used to make posters that are sold in the big box stores. Because the paper requires a ton of ink to saturate it during printing you must be cautious when handling your poster to avoid leaving a finger-print. Posters printed on this paper need to be placed inside a nice frame to protect them from dust and curious hands. Pair your poster with a nice frame and will become a piece of wall decor that garners attention.
