Default Large Format Printing

I would like to get a printout of the 12iS wiring diagram on either a C (18"x24") or D (24"x36") size paper. The diagram is eleven pages long and my preference would be to print it in color. Does anyone have any good recommendations on places that would print this for a reasonable price?

I looked at Staples and they wanted $69.30 for 11 sheets of size D in color! Many of the other places I looked at online didn't have paper options in that size, only poster prints.

You might have luck with a company that regularly prints architectural plans.

They can print with color and may have a better price point.

Good luck.

A Staples store or similar can probably do it...not sure if it would be a reasonable price...

Just checked with Fedex. They'll print the 11 pages for $395.34!

Really, try an architectural blueprint company. They do this all the time.

Exactly. Many places "can" do it, but will it be clear. A blueprint shop will have a high resolution plotter. Probably cheaper than anyone else.

Where did you get the 11 page PDF of the wiring diagram?

Thanks for all the suggestions so far. Looking for places that specialize in architectural blueprints (not generic printing or photos) did open up some local options that I couldn't find before. I'll contact a few to get pricing.
