Printing letters ABCetc to fill an A4 sheet???

  Noels 10:05 30 May 03

I am organising a stall at our local village Faire and wish to create a banner using A4 paper one sheet for each individual letter. So far the largest font size (72)Word 2000 is still only a couple of inches tall. Any ideas on how to fill an A4 sheet would be welcome.

Thanks in anticipation

One way would be to look in clip art for your letters, insert the letter you want, then expand it to fit the page. J.

In Word, open Format, Font and in the box you can type any font size you want.

700 TNR will give you just about a full A4 sheet.

To clarify:

700 TNR - I mean 700 point Times New Roman. Other fonts will vary in size somewhat.

Just tried that one. By removing all borders, I managed to get it up to 830 with TNR

Works though and is very easy, isn't it.

Done this for years making flag banners for the local WI fĂȘte. Reminds me - another coming up soon, oh well!!

look for a font with the initials TT by it.

These fonts will scale up to any size you want and remain true. Others may pixel-ate or loose proportions. Having said that, I am only regurgitating what I have been told and have never tried this myself.

have followed this thread with interest but using office 97 I can only get up to 72 if I try to type in anything over this it just defaults to the 72. Does it not work in 97 or am I doing something wrong.

Got it. As I thought I was doing something wrong lol
