Printed on 135 x 41 cm SILK (although it feels like a synthetic material so maybe SILK is a working name for it. Have asked for some details).
StykerMedia (http://www.strykermedia.com.au/) on the Gold Coast in Queensland Australia supply prints like these for surfboard graphics so they've got experience with these being encapsulated in epoxy. $25 per print (cheaper for larger quantities) + delivery makes it about half the prince of dye sublimated PBT and has the advantage that you can actual find a supplier of it!!!!
The image is a photoshoped version of The Great Wave off Kanagawa which is one of the series 36 Views of Mount Fuji by Japanese artist Hosukai. I found it on google images (using the 'large' search option) and added the sky because the original is a grey and dull.
Colours came out brilliantly, 300dpi resolution, no pixelation (which was a concern as I pulled the image from the web and put it into a pdf). Website says that wets out completely clear. My plan is to use 2 layers of glass and encapsulate it in between. Will most likely use 4 oz s-glass as the last layer as its apparently much better for impact resistance due to the 30% greater strength and 3 times the strain to breaking (3.5% compared to 1% for e-glass)
