The vendors listed here were qualified only by their presence on the web and their discovery by simple search engines. Business on the web requires the same care that life outside the web has always required. Try your own search on: panoramic print poster etc. Compare print sizes, print prices, shipping costs and warranty. Some vendors provide only fixed aspect ratios for panoramas. Others offer panorama by length for fixed widths or by the square foot. We haven't called their bluffs on how large they will really print. Be careful out there!
Not all viewers support the large dimensions of extreme panoramas. If a large panorama seems broken, be sure that you viewing software is capable of supporting the image size you are trying to view. IrfanView (at www.irfanview.com) is a program that was used to convert some of the larger .tif source files to the .jpgs on this site. It is downloadable without cost. It can also be used to crop a large panorama to a printable size and proportion. If you use it and like it, consider supporting the author.
Panoramic Printing Service Providers found on the Net
Cut paper is available up to 8.3" by 44". Printers that support roll papers allow you to produce prints of arbitrary lengths. For example the Epson product line includes the R800 for 4" and 8.3" widths and the R1800 and R2400 for up to 13" widths. Roll paper can be cut to length for printers that lack roll holders. But, check that your software supports long prints! This includes your print program, operating system and printer drivers.
SMUGMUG limits file sizes to 24 megabyte or less. Some of the panoramic files are built as .tif files from 200 to 900 megabytes. These files are compressed to save you download time and storage. If you have a really-really big application, you might want to print something too big for the SMUGMUG files. To see what resources are available for really-really large printing try searches on: billboard, vinyl printing, 'grand format' and 'building wrap'. Modern signmakers use inkjet printers up to fifteen feet wide! If you need a billboard or a building wrap that will show maximum detail from the source files, Email Me.
And don't forget to follow the terms of the license (personal or commercial) under which you purchased your panorama.
