How to Enlarge Posters
Hello friends! Have you ever had classroom posters that you would like to make bigger? I have! Luckily one of my sweet colleagues, Melissa from Melissa's Lil Learners, showed me how to enlarge my favorite posters and I couldn't believe how easy it was!

First, you're going to need Adobe Reader. Don't have Adobe Reader? No problem! You can get it free here.

Step 1: Open up your posters in Adobe Reader. Select file and then print.

Step 2: After you have gone to the print screen, under page sizing and handling select Poster. Below the poster selection, check the box that says Cut marks. This will show you how your poster will be divided among the pages it prints on and where you will need to cut it out. 

Step 3: Under Tile Scale, type in the percentage that you would like your posters to be enlarged to. I typically do 150% which makes my posters 11.5 inches wide by 15 inches tall. You can play with the percentage here! 

Step 4: Print your posters! It will come out in several different pieces like in the picture below. Cut out the pieces and glue them together. I typically leave some of the white space so I can easily glue it together.

Step 5: Laminate your posters so they will stay looking nice all year! 

Ta-Da! There you have it! I hope this little tutorial was helpful! If you're looking for the same poster seen in the pictures you can get it here with more inspirational posters!
