Anyone have any tips for printing online and Emailed blue prints in PDF format. If I print 1 page it is too small to read. If I blow it up then I need to keep printing each page spot by spot. Then I end up with an overlapping pile of mess.

I printed out a plans once and it was soo small. So I cut out the images and stapled them together. Handed it to someone and said heres your next job. It was about the size of a book of stamps.

Can I take a PDF to a printer to be put on a normal size print paper? If so how much does that run?

If you have a Kinkos, they have the equipment to print large format.

Ditto on the Kinko's. I generally download to either a 3 1/2 disk or to my brand new handy dandy 128 MB USB JumpDrive. I then take it to Kinko's and they do the download there and print out for the scale required.
