My printer can only print on 8.5x11 sheets of paper and i'm looking to "blow up"/magnify a single word big enough that i can print it across maybe 6 pieces of paper and some how stitch them together.

Is there a program or method that would work best for this?

I'm using a mac.

Thank you!

Write your word in a program such as GIMP so that you can save it as an image file in the desired dimensions. You will then be able to open it in PosteRazor and export a multi-page .pdf file.

The PosteRazor cuts a raster image into pieces which can afterwards be printed out and assembled to a poster.

PosteRazor will do the trick and works with any image. Thanks a ton. –  mariozig Oct 17 '12 at 22:25

I guess that is a basic function for almost all designing programs.

I have tested by Adobe Illustrator creative suite 5. The steps:

  1. Input the word and make it to vector by "create outline".
  2. Enlarge to the size what you want.
  3. Print with "tile" option.

Try Excel. It is very good at splitting content across pages.

Could you expand on the answer with some instructions for the OP or other users seeing this from Google? –  Canadian Luke Oct 17 '12 at 17:03
