To get you ready for Christmas, I will be posting lots of free printables. Today I will be sharing six traditional style holiday and Christmas wall art printables. These signs are sized 8×10, but I’m also going to show you how to blow them up so that you can get them printed in larger sizes. You can actually use what I am going to show you with any of our other free printable wall art. Be sure to check back this month, as I’ll be posting more holiday themed free printables throughout the month.

How to make prints into larger sizes:
These free printables will automatically print out size 8×10. If you’d like to make them larger, I am going to show you how to easily make them larger and have them printed. I like to get my larger sized posters printed at FedEx Office. They have an easy to use online printing system. You can upload your image to their website and they will print out your order. You can either have them ship it to you or you can pick it up from the location closest to you.
Once you have the file open in Adobe Reader, increase the view percentage to 800%.
Then go to the edit menu at the top. Then go down to take a snapshot.
Next right click your mouse on the image to bring up the selection menu and choose Select All.
Then right click again on the selected image and click copy selected graphic. This will copy the image to your clipboard.
Now all you need to do is open the free image editor on your computer. On a mac, it’s called Preview. On a PC, you can use Paint. Since I have a Mac, I’m going to be showing you how to do it in Preview.
Open Preview then go to the file menu in Preview then down to New from Clipboard. This will create a new image in Preview from the image that you copied in Adobe Reader.
Lastly, save this new image as a JPEG file. Make sure you choose to save it as the best quality.
It may seem complicated, but basically all you are doing through the steps above is blowing the PDF image up to a larger size, copying it to your clipboard, pasting it into a free photo editor, and saving is as a high quality JPEG file. Once you have the file saved, you can upload it into any printing service and have the file printed at a large poster size.
