Wall Charts / Large Size Printing?

I have the need for several large wall charts (approx 45"x20" and/or 40"x15") showing monthly OHLC commodity futures prices (CL & NG initially).

Rather than pay a lot of money for something that would probably already be out of date I was thinking that maybe I would make my own by utilizing a large format printer at a local shop.

Has anybody tried anything similar? Curious as to what quality/size digital image I would need in order to print something like this and for it still to look good enlarged like this. Also looking for recommendations for generating such image. I have all the price data but don't have any suitable charting software that could create something like that.

I would use Excel or something else that can generate vector graphics as opposed to 'printing' a screenshot of a charting package.

R could do it for sure.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
