Large Scale Printing Using A Standard Home Printer

Friday, July 7, 2017

Have you ever done any sketches, line art, or rough drafts of art that you wanted to display on a much larger scale? But now you have to re-draw it again; that can be a pain in the butt for sure... at least that's how I feel. Well, I have a solution for you in this post! You can actually print your images much larger than you realize with a standard 8.5" x 11" printer! I learned this tile printing method early in my graphic design career in order to create quick mock-ups of posters, banners, or ads which I used to double check everything worked aesthetically, and to present scaled drafts to clients or my boss! In this post I'm going to teach you how to print your images as several tiles to create a large enough template for tracing, or larger reference material to refine as a completed piece!
