Hello,

It's been so long since visiting this forum!! My mom is interested in having one of my photos blown up to the size of 22x28 inches, to fit in one of her frames. The problem is there's no Kinkos within driving distance of where I am. I've checked with Walmart photo department, Kodak online, and Shutterfly as well, but they all list their sizes on the website and it's the typical sizes you would find for a poster, but they don't seem to do custom sizes.

Where might I go to have this printed? MANY thanks for the help!

You might have to have the image printed on a standard sized paper and trim off the excess yourself. It's the sort of thing a local gallery would offer free of charge, but maybe not the big mass market businesses. If you don't feel confident enough to trim it yourself, I imagine a local photocopying / office services shop would do it for you at very little cost.

If you intend to mat the picture in the frame, you need to have the image printed with a reasonable border around it anyway.

Hmm, every place I checked only printed up to 20x30, so if I have 22x28, that wouldn't allow any to trim. :confused:

And she isn't wanting a mat, due to extra expense, plus we can't find any to fit the size of the frame.

Looks like MPix will go up to 24x36.

THANK YOU! I hadn't found that website. Gosh that is pricey. We might have to screw the idea. Mom's been trying to find a nice beach/sand themed photo to put in their bedroom, but hasn't found one the right size without having to buy a mat too. So I thought if I could take beach photos, it would save her a lot of money and we'd just enlarge it. Unfortunately this option seems to be just as pricey. :/

Just a suggestion....Might be better for you to get a 20x30 and buy a frame at Aaron brothers with their 40% off coupon (seems to pop up every month now).

Thanks, I'll check into it. She was trying to avoid wasting this frame since she bought glass to fit in it (which was not cheap), but I'll check out what you said too.

Holy Mother of God! What an ANNOYING website. Good price, though.

$10 promo on a 24 x 36 poster. I did their promo a couple months ago and thought it was really decent for the price. You might email their support and ask about what they can do for your size restrictions.

Wow that's a pretty good deal! I am a bit leary of ordering from places that aren't well-known (ie: Kodak, Walmart, etc.), so that's a bit of a concern, but it looks like a great place otherwise. Will keep in mind.

Right now she's not sure what she wants to do. We can't find any pre-made posters that fit, and it's going to be a huge hassle to take photos for her, get them printed, pay for it, etc. etc., so she's still thinking.

Thanks so much for all the help everyone. You've been very helpful. :)
