Help with Printing

Postby clive » Thu Jan 18, 2007 11:30 am

I was planning on doing a model of Thunderbird 4 (the yellow submarine) working from photographs of the sub :D . I enlarged these up to 30inches (650mm long) with Photoshop in *.jpg format then tried to get them printed which is when I had a fright because to print one image is around £25 anyone got any bright ideas of suggestions of a more economic way of printing

Work out how many A4 pages the plans take up and edit your plans ( make sure there is an overlap ) into A4 size and print them off on your home printer. All you do then is stick them together after trimming them to size. It isn't the best way to do it but I managed to enlarge a set of plans for the projected H class German battleships up to 72" this way and the detail is still there.

Have you tried Staples, they are competitive on big prints.
