I'd go with my inkjet printer, cut, and apply to some other mapboard scrounged from thrift scraps. That'd be cheap. If I wanted to do it right, I'd find some way to mount in inside a big wooden frame, with recessed areas for reinforcements and such. OF course that'd cost quite a bit of cash.

Your way would be somewhere in the middle of thse two options.

I downloaded the alternate ancient looking map by Mattia but now what? Do i burn it to a disk and take it to Kinko's? Anyone have any experience with this type of thing? Excellent looking map btw.

OfficeMax would likely charge you about $40 for a full-size prinout, but they could do it. Otherwise, I would suggest you go with the suggestion to cut it up into 8.5"x11" chunks. Alternatively, OfficeMax or some similar place could print several 11"x17", for a little under $2 apiece.

Here is what I did. I already had a package of full sheet sized labels (8 1/2 x 11), which if you use some of the files you can get at BGG, are almost mandatory. The backs peel off, leaving a printed page with a sticky backside.
My printer...a cheap Lexmark...lets me (under "printing preferences"), take any pdf file and expand it into 9 separate sheets. After printing and trimming the borders, I had 9 map sections about 7" x 10". I happened to have a mounted board from an old crummy golf game, that was just perfect. I peeled the backings one at a time, and carefully attached each sheet to the board...and voila! Now mind you, I used a mounted board that only has one fold in it...so the board will not fit in the box. But it still looks great. With a little inovation, I'm sure someone can figure out how to mount the map to a couple of old Trivial Pursuit boards (C'mon, no one plays that game anymore).
Nevertheless, full sized label sheets are the key component, at about $12 for 25, or 100 for nearly $40. And you'll find a ton of uses for them.

Print it on outdoor banner vinyl at Kinko's. 36" wide, $8-10 per square foot. Worth the investment.
