The boyfriend fell in love with this $40 hoodie at Heartbreakers (so weird for him to do)...

...and since his birthday's coming up, I wanted to stencil the image for him. As you can tell in the picture - it's pretty big.

Do any of you know of any way or anywhere I can go to get this enlarged to that size so I can stencil it? Any way would be preferred, as I'm kind of cheap.

I'm a little confused at what you're trying to enlarge.........you want to make this shirt for your boyfriend, so you just want to take this picture and enlarge it to a size so that you can stencil it on a shirt you already have?  And also crop out the sweatshirt in the pic, right?

It can be done with photo editing software like Photoshop, or just print the picture out yourself, cut out the sweatshirt part, and then take just the stencil part to a copying place and enlarge it to the size that you want.  You might have to do it on more than one piece of paper, then piece it together.

I hope that helped.

I will trade my ephemera scans for your ephemera scans - please PM me if you are interested!

I'm sorry, I should have been clearer. Yes, I want to stencil the image on the shirt onto another sweatshirt, not the whole picture itself.

That did help. I'll try it out.

I work in the copy center at Staples, and we have large format black and white copiers. Most stores should have this, but we can make copies up to like 48 inches wide by however long, and the black and white copies are only .50 cents a square foot like that. It's super easy, too.m

It's not as easy as it was
