You can print whatever you want – It all depends on what your standards are quality wise and how much time you are willing to put into making something better.
I have shot digital since 1995 (@ 320 X 240 then, up to 10 MPx which is what I shoot now). I have also shot film (since 1960) on 126, 127, 110, 35mm & 4X5 (I still love film and miss my old Crown Graphic).
I have printed photos of a lesser resolution than they should have been – I wanted that 4X6, 5X7 or 8X10 even though I knew they would be less than optimal, because I only had a low res file and wanted the photo anyway.
One trick to making a smaller resolution file print better is also to gradually grow it in your photo editing software – Instead of doubling the image resolution, try bumping it up 5-10% at a time using multiple steps – This makes it easier for your program to interpolate what needs to be created and gives you an overall better image than one done in one fell swoop.
If you’re happy with 8X10’s from 2MPx files, great – I would not deliver a wedding album built from them.
