If I use my printer, I can get like 50 pages of 8 1/2x11 sheets which need to be taped together. Need advice as to how to download a large descendant chart to have printed on one sheet at Kinko's, etc.

There is a company that provides such a service. Heartland Family Graphics provides such a service. Tim Lundin of Heartland Family Graphics has made posts in ReunionTalk.

It appears that a 50 page chart would cost about ninty dollars. I have not used the service and I am not connected to the company.

http://www.familygraphics.comYou just can't go wrong with Heartland Family Graphics. I have used them repeatedly and every job has been done to perfection and at a cost that was just a fraction of what the same job (with any images or color) would have cost me at a Kinko's, etc. (See here for my post last March (http://www.reuniontalk.com/showthread.php?t=150#post658) on why I'm so enthusiastic about Heartland Family Graphics and give it an unqualified endorsement. And the jobs I've had them do since then have only served to reaffirm they are the place to go to if you want things done right and at a reasonable cost.)

I second the recommendation of Heartland Family Graphics. They do a really nice job.

Not to beat the drum to death, but Tim Lundin at Familygraphics is probably one of the nicest, most knowledgeable and helpful people you will meet in the genealogy field. I have known him, and about him for years and have never heard a negative comment about him --- or from him. Do as you must for your layout and working files, but when you get ready to "go public", get Tim to help you. The results will stun your audience --- and yourself!

I agreee with the other posters' recommendations.

However, I have also printed out a chart I use as a working document at Kinkos. Saved my chart as a Word file on a CD. Had it printed, but on the blueprint copier (I think that is what it is called.). I told them I didn't want a high quality product, just the cheapest printout possible. Worked out very well.
