    http://www.blockposters.com/

    This website will take your image, picture, etc and blow it up and send it to your computer so that you can print it yourself. It breaks down the image and puts in on standard paper and will make it any size you want.
    Best of all - its free!
    Don't be put off by the sample poster. I have used it and it is great!
    Imagine making a bulletin board with a giant picture of your class. Cover your door with a life sized picture of yourself holding a sign that says "Welcome to Xth Grade!" That would give those kids something to talk about!

    Very nice! A couple of years ago I used this one: homokaasu.org/rasterbator/

    Had problems with keeping the poster in the wall. The wall was not smooth and the glue was not strong. But it looked really nice while it was up :)

    How cool! Thank you for sharing this one. Can you imagine the lessons you could do? Okay so I think in teaching terms...LOL. Show a piece and ask the kids to write about their observation...do the same and until the last square or three is left to see if their observation was correct. I so can't coorelate to the standards right now (five hours of sleep does that to a person), but....waaay cool on being FREE!

    Sounds neat. My largest concern would be the ink used to make such a poster!

    Most of the one I have made are 6-8 sheets and I really try to use an image that has a white background to limit ink use.

    This is too cool! I think I would take bright, lots of ink posters to Staples and have them printed there.

    I just found out that my school has a graphic arts class and they can print these types of posters for us. Check if your school or the high school in your district can do something like that for you.
