BIG PRINT – low cost

I have wanted to post on this for a while. I recall going down to Kinkos and other places where you can get a BIG PRINT made of your photo. By BIG PRINT (Ok I’ll stop shouting) I mean something say 2 feet x 2 feet or more. But when I looked at the price it was a nice chuck of change. If you are lucky enough to have access to a large format printer you can maybe con them into a printout – if you pay for the paper, or some of the ink use…but you can’t probably play with it to see it its what you really want. (I’ll need to do a post here on all the variety of papers now available.)

So I came across this post in Sugar Bee Crafts by Mandy that offers a pretty clever solution and gives you a fairly nice printout. This was always possible but the resolution was never quite there from the photo side. Today’s digital camera, along with some software (apps to you tablet folks), we can now enhance photos fairly easily making it possible to print at low res and still get a fantastic result. Here is the article for your perusal.
