Actually, you may find that many printing stores -- especially the larger
chains like Kinkos, et al, will not do copies or enlargements of book covers
(hardcover or paperback) because of fears of copyright infringements. Because their policy is a blanket one, it doesn't matter if it's today's bestseller or a book from decades ago...they simply won't do it.
And, yes, I speak from experience. :-(
Your best bet is to go to a smaller outfit...they'll typically have less
concerns in this area.
