Professional printing services for Photoshop masterpieces

Software: Photoshop 5.5

Assuming I have created a masterpiece, and I am not satisfied with an 8.5" x 11" inkjet printout, nor does a color laser do justice to my artwork,...What does a budding daVinci do to get his Mona Lisa on a 24" x 36" sheet of high quality paper at a high-resolution so that I can hang it in the Louvre?

Seriously...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

A color laser just isnt going to do it. What you want to do is go to an Iris proof or go to a CMYK offset press. I have done some beautiful pieces via an Iris and the color is simply outstanding. Offset press is even better if you can find a good service bureau that can print that size relatively cheaply. Either way is going to be expensive. For an 18x24 iris i pay $75 and thats with a half price discount from the service bureau. (make friends with the guys behind the counter!!) For offset press it may be even more expensive depending on how many you plan to run off.
