Big Prints

Our friends at Photojojo just shared this rad new product with us. For $25, you can turn any photo into a human-sized print! There are tons of fun things you could do with giant prints like this (remember these??) But if you need a little inspiration, they also have a bunch of creative ideas on their website.

    These prints are basically blueprints, and available at any blueprinter (or called a reprographics shop nowadays). My family owns/operates a blueprint shop, and yes – I have LOTS of fun and take full advantage of my access to large format printers. The prints mentioned on this site are basically prints off a “blueprint” machine – so while they’re not super high quality, they are great for many applications. Support a local/family business by searching for a reprographics shop!

    Love this idea. Question: how come you don’t have a way to pin posts directly from your blog? It’d sure be a lot more convenient than copying and pasting every fabulous link

  • This is so cool, but does your photo have to be a certain pixel-size?

  • I saw this today and wondered why anyone not in a rural area would pay for this… since Staples charges $7 for the same print.

  • Hi there! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be ok.

    I’m definitely enjoying your blog and look forward
    to new updates.

    Thought I’d chime in on the question, re: pixel size. For us (a large-format printer), it’s more about the file itself being “full-size”. So if you want a 24×36 print, your PDF should be 24×36. (To see the sheet size of any given PDF, open the file in Adobe Reader, hover your mouse in the bottom-left corner of the screen, and the sheet size populates). Of course DPI (dots per inch) counts too – 72 is low (for most web-based applications), with 200 DPI being more ideal for large-format printing.

    Oh, I would LOVE to do this with my photography. I’m so glad I saw this. <3

    We just did this with my son’s senior photo for his graduation party (and 5 other of his friends also taking part in the same party). The copies were $7 each at Staples. No need to pay $25 to Photojojo (much as I love Photojojo).
