Paper based print on headliner?

ok so the time has come i have no choice
but to replace the headliner in my 95 xj sport.
the process of replacing the cloth is easy enough,
problem is that i've known this day was coming for a long while
and I've extensively searched for a unique fabric/cloth that will fit the overall theme/build of this baby and i'm coming up unfulfilled.

so, my question is this:
has anyone attempted and/or successfully applied any sort of paper based print on a headliner? has a vast array of large prints/posters with better designs & patterns than i have been able to find on a fabric or cloth.

the idea being to pull the headliner, go through the usual process of replacing the cloth, then applying the print over top of the fabric with the necessary holes for the center light and whatnot. seems like best idea would be to laminate the whole kitten kaboodle assuming i could find a laminate machine that the whole headliner could fit through.

just wondering if anyone has attempted this and could give me any pointers or tell me if its worth my time before i jump in headlong.

thanks in advance

Your idea sounds interesting. I would experiment with another piece of material besides your headliner. Maybe clear polyurethane sprayed over it would work. But abrasions and punctures are gonna be hell on it. Google "tapestries" and see what you come up with cuz I really think you'd be better off with fabric.
