Affordable Posters: Design them Yourself

Affordable Posters: Design them Yourself

We've been wanting to make our own large scale posters ever since we eyed this print (maxwell's email didn't help quell our thirst for them either). But we really love this one because it's simple, it's to the point and we have no idea where to buy the original. So we've been looking into how to make something similar and not spend a lot:

And it looks like everyone's go-to will be ours as well. Kinko's offers some unbeatable prices on large scale printing and gives you options like printing to canvas. Since we can lay something out ourselves in Photoshop or Illustrator, we can make sure that we have enough resolution to blow the image/text up large without it becoming grainy. And since what we have in mind would stay black and white, we can even use the large scale copier they have for doing blueprints.

What have you had made at Kinko's or another print shop?
