This would also be a good read. Making fine prints in your digital darkroom: Getting started

If it is a digital file it will be printed either by injet, color laser or dyesub. Those are your choices.
I once had some 35mm negatives scanned. Stitched them together in Photoshop, then had a 6x7 neg printed. I was able to use that neg. in the darkroom. It wasn't convenient or cheap, but it is possible.

Ive tried WalMart, MPix and NPL. My final pick is NPL.

WalMart
Fast turn around, upload pix, ready by the time I got there
Expensive
Print looked like pure garbage, I wasted my time and money

MPix
Fast turn around, fast service and ship to customer
Affordable, even after shipping
Picture was a bit dark


NPL
Fast turn around, fast ship
Affordable, even after shipping
Test 1 was without correction. Photos were a tad dark, colors not 100% what I expected
Test 2 was WITH correction. Photos were 99% of what the screen showed me. Very pleased.


Andrew
