    I am looking to get a few pics from alaska blown up to put on my walls! What is the best way to go about doing this (best = compromise of cheap and look good)

    probably the best/cheapest way to do it is to google "alaska posters"

    so you have higher resolution files of those files?

    Then I would look for a service online that will print them big for cheap and then frame them myself.

    I doubt Wally World will be able to print up a full size picture and I bet any place that can do that locally will be expensive. I would definitely look online before spending money at a pro photo shop.

    if you have hi res photos and you are only looking to blow up 3 pics then i would go to ritz or some place like that.... shouldn't cost too much for 3 copies and they usually have it done by the end of the day.

    then go to michaels and get it framed... maybe pick out the frame you want first or atleast just the size and have a couple frame style options

    custom fram sizes/styles can get pretty expensive compared to the price of the pic so you want to make sure you print your pics in a size that you can easily find a generic frame for... take into consideration matting when you figure sizes too if you want to go that route.

    Id try kinkos. They have HUGE copiers. I have had a lot of different things done for work. It all depends on the resolution the pictures are in.

    Or, if you have a few bucks, start an account at Redbubble.com thats where I host my photos, the quality is unbeatable, for a few bucks over wally worlds. Only tip is to brighten them up a bit, RB tends to print a little dark.

    Did you go to Dutch?
