Large sized 'Printing' help


#1

I want to have a high resolution 6ft x 4ft coloured print of a photograph to paste on my room's wall. But can't figure out whom to contact where in Islamabad/Pindi.

Help appreciated.

contact any circular road/waris khan road , near banni rawalpindi. there are shops of advertisers and composers. Just ask them to printer a 6 x 4 ft poster . They will tell u the paper type for such size . usually it is the art paper used. Costs will be between 2000- 3000 Rupees.

Thanks for the location. But the cost you mentioned is quite high for pinning up a poster in my room. My budget for this is anything less than a thousand.

Well that size is large and might make you print lots of pages but anyways if you got a decent color photo printer and you can cheaply get it refilled then trying do this

Upload your photograph on http://www.blockposters.com/ choose how many pages wide you want the poster to be, then it’ll convert your pic into pdf which you can print with your printer and then paste all the papers together to make a large poster.

I normally do the larger black ink ones with my black laser printer while the smaller color ones with my color inkjet printer.

I’d like to say many thanks for pointing this out for me. I guess I am going to go for this one. Though I don’t owe a colour printer but I am going to go to a net cafe of some sort and get my colour prints from there.

Well this thing use up lots of ink so i don't know how much would net cafe charge you per color print but to be on safe side do inquire rates from digital photo shop like Agfa and Fuji that are present in every city,or you could go to some computer market where they refill printer cartridges they also do printouts cheaply . My color inkjet normally cost Rs 100 to refill both black and color cartridges.

Maybe you can get it printed from some friend of yours who owns a printer and then get his cartridge refilled. HPs are popular because they're easier to refill.

F’lashback

using color printer to do slice printing is not recommended as the color is created by ink mixup each time .so color is of not the same quality and shades may vary with each print. at the end end you will have print with uneven color tones which wont go unnoticed.

your best bet is art paper .Panaflex is not answer for home wall poster size pic.
