    I'm going Warped Tour this summer and the band I'm going to see (Angels & Airwaves) wants us to make huge white flags so they can see us in the crowd. I wanted to know if any of you can blow this image up for me. it doesn't matter if it gets distorted cuz i'm gonna be stenciling it onto "iron on" fabric. Anyway, please make it as large as you can get it - preferably 2 or 3 feet across.

    Here's a link to the Image...

    Thank you so so so much for doing this for me. :)

    I did it in Preview (Tools - adjust size), bit fuzzy.

    Anyway this should be 3 foot wide.

    Here you go – I vectorised the image and then enlarged it to three foot wide, so it should be reasonably sharp for you.

    If anyone ever has a similar problem, vectormagic.com, it works quite well. It will vectorized almost any image, its about $2.50 per image or $5 for unlimited.

    Be careful at kinkos, they are pretty much as useless as it gets to image printing. Their large format printing usually runs about 8-10 bucks per SQUARE foot...keep that in mind. There is a great tool called rasterbator that scales up any image to super large format using individual sheets of paper (8.5x11) which is much cheaper to print if you wanted to go that route.

    If you are printing black and white, look up large format CAD plotting/printing in your area. They are fairly cheap, less than $1.00/sq ft. and can be done pretty much instantly if they are not busy.
