Scaling up plans at home
Here's a round about way I just tried, successfully:
--Using a paper size scanner, scan the actual size, one section at a time. I was using a Peanut plan so, this was not too tough.
--In powerpoint, create a large slide (Design/page setup) the size of the original plan.
--Assemble the scanned pieces, without changing the actual size. You might have to set the white background to 'transparent' to get them to line up easily.
--Save the big picture as a PDF.
--Open the PDF in Adobe Reader X
--Print the file, Using the "Poster" setting and choose the tile scale of the desired scale up. I suggest adding the cut marks.
Hope this helps!
