If you have a great printer, you can DIY at home—just get yourself some sturdy poster board, some spray glue, and a wooden handle and you're good to go. No Martha Stewart? Fedex has one-day turnaround and may be the cheapest route—given inclement weather, opt for foam core mounting and lamination ($40 for 18" x 24"; multiple locations in San Francisco and Bay Area–wide). Prefer to shop local (and pay more)? Try Accurate Printing in SoMa (760 Bryant St., union-printing.com).
