We use Powerpoint and Word for Windows to do a half size version of the final 
poster (cut and paste to a half-final-size piece of white poster board).  It 
is then photographed to make a negative (about 8x10 inches).  We then send it 
out to a local blueprint shop where they enlarge it to final size.  Process is 
called a photostat roll and cost about $120 U.S. for a 4x8 foot poster.  Turn 
around time is about 48 hours from negative to final print.  Hope this helps.
