A rule of thumb for 'how much resolution do I need for a print' is 300 dpi.

Good rule of thumb if you are going to be examining the print with magnification and if your printer really has that resolution. My big printer's real 24bit color resolution, determined experimentally, is 150 dpi.

My boss has a photo from a g10 printed five feet wide. It's maybe 72 dpi. If you stand far enough away to see the whole thing it looks fine.
