Where do I get a Custom/Wall size map..Any suggestions?

Anybody know where I could go to get a map of the WHOLE PACIFIC OCEAN? My first thought was kinko's but I want to be able to set the Corner areas myself..? Basically the top left corner( NW corner of map) would be a little northwest of Japan and the top edge would be at about 40 deg.latitude and run to the Northeast of New York , (NE corner of the map). I want to be able to barely see the west coast of South America , somewhere around Chile (SE corner of map) and then all the way across the pacific to the West coast of Australia.. ! The size would match one of my bedroom walls, 10'-4" wide by 8'-0" tall. Get some size perspective on the area every time I wake up and sack out. It's GOTTA BE ENORMOUSLY HUMBLING!!

I would image that for something that size, you're going to have to do it in panels. Otherwise the cost could be enormous.

You're funny, and probably right. I spent the better part of a day destroying a world atlas and then trying to put it back together, (basically) on my wall. The coastlines and countries are many different scales. 1:10,000 is great for land but the string of Islands from Australia to Chile are scaled at 1:70,000. Just curious if anybody has some magic website or something where somebody does this sort of thing...

How about this one?

Oceania & Pacific Ocean Mural - EGI Maps| Murals Your Way

They have sizes up to 12' 8" x 9' 6" (including one close to the size you're looking for).

Could be wallpaper kits too.... - cheaper than the $650 for a 10x8 mural if you can find it.

..but a Pacific Ocean specific one may be harder to find.

Both of these site might be of some help. They allow you customize your wall decoration.
