Copying a large document

Does anyone know a print/copier shop with a large flatbed (not roll feeder) copier - A0 or A1 - please?
I have a VERY large document with attachments fixed to it which I'd like to get copied. The attachments can't be removed. Around 1990 I took a similar document into one of those walk-in High Street instant print/copy shops & they copied it on a flat bed (A0 or A1 - can't recall which) copier.
Even on an A0 copier it will take 4 copies to cover the whole doc.
Now going back (& then phoning around) all these print shops only have large roller feed type copiers for large documents. You can't (of course) feed my doc through these.
I visit Leeds area, E Midlands & London from time to time, but anywhere in this country will do.
Hope this is not too OT - but once I have the copy the next stages are defintely DIY!
TIA

Depending on the quality you require, you could photograph it with a digital camera (many shots, of course) and then stitch them together.

You may have to phone around the graphics design type places to find out if they have that kind of facility you can use. I think you'll also find it a bit more expensive to do than it was back in 1990 though.

Much cheaper than 1990, IMHO.
1996 was when theis stuff became affordable, 2000 for cheap. By 2005 you;ll be able to buy the kit for less than using it for an hour in 1990.

Worth calling 'The Architect Shop' in York 01904 632313 Small place but packed with kit. Adam or any of the others there should be able to help. If they can't do it they'll be able to pass you on to someone who can.

Your best bet may be to photgraph it with a digi camera, use software to tidy it up and reassemble, and get the resultant digital file printed.
Depends on how acurate ou meed it.

There are some print programs that can be setup to print, say a poster, by dividing the subject into 0 from a photo or a scan or a CAD program .I have forgotten which print handling programs give this facility. Please someone help as I have a similar problem.

My epson printer driver will do this up to a point. Have you tried importing into excel and setting the print range? A big bodge but it might just work. Probably not very accurate sizing though.
