Can you tell them that's a silly request? A screenshot, by definition,  
is limited to the screen resolution.

If it's too hard to educate their art department, just make a  
screenshot and adjust the dpi in PhotoShop to 300. They won't notice.

Or do what OLPC's PR does, fake the screenshots in illustrator. Eben  
certainly has a lot of them lying around.

If you *really* wanted to get fancy, run Sugar inside a VNC server of  
say 12000x9000 pixels at 2000 dpi. Sugar is designed to be scalable to  
all resolutions so in theory this should work. In practice you'll find  
there are some things that are not really scaled.
