how to print a large tree #general

I went to my local FedEx store where they will print your tree as a banner.  You need to transfer the tree document to a thumb drive and bring it to FedEx or send it  as an email attachment.  Talk to them first.

Wrt: does anyone know of a home printer that will take continuous paper
 
My Epson P800 (new model P900) can print 17" wide up to 590 inches (maybe longer) on roll paper, on Windows. It is more limited on MacOS. It's designed for professional color photo prints, so it might be overkill for some. There are other models as well, like the P400 and P600 that can also print on 13" rolls. The roll feeders are extra cost on P400/P600/P800, but the P700 and P900 include them. The P800 and P900 can print on 3" diameter rolls (about 100'), while the smaller printers are limited to about 20'.

There might be other brands available as wel.

You can also print an image of up to 24x36 inches as a poster. This can be done by any photo lab. If you use FTM to make a PDF of the tree you can then print that PDF as a poster. You may have to customize the tree's layout to the needed dimensions.

Other people have responded about how to export a printable tree in Family Tree Maker 2019.   The question then is where to get it printed, presuming you want it on one sheet of paper.  I was able to work with a local printing service that had a printer with a continuous roll of paper in order to get my tree printed.  Alternatively, there are online services that specialized in printing large family trees.   See the article https://www.familytreemagazine.com/projects/how-to-print-family-tree/ for information on these.

Family Tree Maker 2019 has a facility in the Publish mode for exporting a tree as a one-page pdf. You can find it by clicking  on the Share  icon, top right..  You can then print the saved file in any size you chose with a suitable printer. I've  printed copies of an A4 print-up with details too small to read on an A3 sheet at my local library, where the copier enlarges to A3 if required.  Alternatively, a commercial printing firm can work on your one-page pdf to your requrements.
FTM  also has a facility to produce a  tree in book form, which I haven't explored myself.  But I have pieced together  trees from several A3 sized pages (all printed at local library) by just being careful to produce them all to the same scale so that the  lines match from one sheet to the next.

-- FamilyTreemaker allows you to export you tree you've constructed and saved in the Publish mode as a single-page pdf file. You can the print a copy of  this at any size you wish with your installed prinr programme. Most home printers don't print on paper larger than A4, but I've been able to enlarge my A4 sheet (which had details too small to read)  on a copier at at the local library, which allows sizes up to A3.  Alternatively there is  a facility to print the tree in book form in the FTM 2017 Publish mode, By clicking on the headings in the Publish mode, and/or right-clicking names on the original tree you'll find lots of other editing facilities as well.

Printing a large tree. If you want to print on a number of pages
there are many ways to do so, but to print on one large page, you
will need to use a plotter. *

I produce a tree in jpg format from "Agelong Tree".
I load Agelong from a GED file I produce from the software
I use, but does not have a way to produce a
"nice" (subjective) tree.

I take the JPG file on a flash drive to a print service
I find near most city halls where people
copy, or print,  blue prints. Be sure they print
the file at 100% and not as some programs save the
file. I have used only 2 locations, one required
TIF format and the other PDF. Each was able
to convert my JPG to their formats.

I have 1600, 1300 are linked and I get a tree of 40cm by
18 meters. 

Additional question: The largest home format printers I find
are A3, does anyone know of a home printer that will
take continuous paper?

* In the olden days, before 2005 or so, there were dot matrix printers
and software to print sideways on continuous paper.

That is not true.  You can use FTM. I use the 2017 version and you can you for example in the publish tab the descendant outline tree where you can put any facts you want too. And you can print it out the way you want.
