I have been shooting with a D700 for over 10 years. It is still my primary camera.

I have printed up to 20 inches x 30 inches to hang in my house.

Based on the results I have seen, I would not hesitate to go larger. 20x30 is large enough for my needs, though, so I don't have any experience with anything larger.

I don't really do much special. I shoot in raw, lightly process in Capture NX2. Typically just a quick global color adjustment, and rotate. If necessary, I will crop, but I have not printed a significantly cropped image at 20x30. I also load the color profile for the specific Costco printer I use.

I then save the image as highest quality JPG and upload to Costco for printing.

The prints cost about $10 each and I have been happy with the results.
