HP® Officejet 7500A Wide Format e-All-in-One Printer from Staples and in that post I shared a Child's Art Work Poster Print I created using a template I made in Photoshop Elements. I'd like to share the template with you, click here to download the file at Dropbox.

My template has been sized to fit in a NYTTJA frame from Ikea that are only $3.99, doesn't get much more affordable than that! Since it's an odd size at 11.75"X15.75" you can resize the template to fit your frame. To do this, I suggest choosing all of the layers, except for Layer 1. The simply drag all of them at once onto a new blank file that has been sized for the frame you'd like to use. While all the layers are still chosen, drag the corner to resize for your new blank file.
If you have not used clipping mask before, here is a tutorial I like, but a quick online search will yield many options for you to check out. You may be able to use this template with other programs that use layers but I only have experience with Photoshop Elements so I am not sure. But since the template if free to download, it's worth a try! If you do try using it on another program please let me know the results.

If you do not have a wide format printer, you can have it done commercially, I suggest the Costco Photo Center for well priced enlargements. The 12"X18" prints are $2.99 at my location, which will fit the template as it's originally sized.
This might all sound confusing but it really is easy with a little practice!
