The high-resolution PDFs can be taken to a places like FedEx/Kinkos or FastSigns for quality printing on posterboard. Or, for a really nice look, get them printed on canvas (the website easycanvasprints.com does good work for a decent price). They are grouped below according to size–12×18, 18×24, and 24×36.
