I take them to Office Depot or I use PosterRazor. PosterRazor is free software, works very well.

Would a ups store do it. And is there a size limit at staples? I'm making a Sign for someone and they want it 48"X24"

OfficeMax is about $0.08 per sheet of 11X17" where I go.  I just copied really large Intarsia patterns for the Eagle I just did.  Went to the local print/graphics place and they charged me $1.75 a sheet!

I take the normal pattern to Office Depot and have them enlarge them. I have had to have them do some on the plotter because they were too big for a printer.

I use the local library if necessary. I have an A3 printer and with PostErazor I can print most of what I need.

I bought a epson all in one printer it prints up to 13"x 19" from computer but has a 11" x 17" scanner bed. I was tired of making trips to town to get large copy's it was worth it to me.Here is a link to the the one I have.  https://epson.com/Cl.../p/C11CC98201-N


If someone has great passion for what they do, its not considered work.

I use excel.  It will print out across multiple pages.  Tape the pages together with clear packing tape.

Thanks for sharing that info.  I was thinking it would be nice to have something like that with the added scanner.  Will check it out.

I use "print" that came with my computer and select the size I want and it prints it out on my printer using multiple sheets of paper.

Can someone explain more on how to use PostErazor? I haven't down loaded it yet because I am afraid of not being able to use it.
