I'd like to notify you about a project just launched on fr.wikipedia.org.
We put in place a partnership with a first printer to distribute
posters of commons' pictures and diagrams (when displayed on

There is a link, now visible by everyone, on image pages that proposes
"Obtenir un poster de cette image" e.g. "Get a poster of this image".
This links opens a menu proposing several (but currently still only
one) printers. When you click on "Order with WikiPosters" (name of the
first printer), you are redirected on the printer website that
proposes sizes of posters. The poster is sent within 24h. The poster
is delivered with a page containing licence and author info (if GFDL
only, it is also provided).

The first printer is established in France and already donated 500€ to
the Foundation, 500€ to Wikimedia France and will keep giving 1.50€
per poster to Wikimedia France. Giving to Wikimedia France allows the
printer to deduce in France 60% of the donation.

An example... (only English and French user-languages display the menu)
