I have an image that a ton of my parents absolutely love

One parent asked about making a wall cling of this image. It got my mind cranking. Its a small community, I am fairly well known for what I do there, and I know many many kids and families. I thought about rather than doing a one off, advertising it and seeing how many commitments I could get. I think that this could be a very successful opportunity, BUT, wall clings are rather expensive (from what I've found). From Mpix, the cost of a cling with a 1 ft width is $40. A cling with a 5 ft width is $90.
I would imagine parents would want a bigger image, but I don't I can't imagine that they would want to spend the $140-$150 I'd want to charge to even make it a profitable thing.
What do you suggest? Possibly just make a large poster?
Also, If I did a cling, I would probably plan on just doing a 4:5 ratio crop rather than a cutout. This was a real quick detail shot during a delay, and I didn't consider this possibility. It was in the turf, and I shot at 2.8...there is turf in the bottom edge of the helmet, and a not-well defined edge in the back of the helmet. I've started a cutout on it, but I don't think it would look good as a cutout.
