    It will be better if you have the actual film and scan that instead of the photo. Then you can blow it up big without losing the details.

    if you can send it for drum scanning, it would be best
    but drum scanning is done from positives and not prints

    if you have the negs it is best to have it enlarged to the size that you want - best quality
    if you have the slides also can do that

    or send fro drum scanning.

    cheapest option is to enlarge to A4 size and use a flatbed scanner to scan it at the highest resolution that is possible.

    BTW how is it printed? Ink jet?
