Adobe Indesign Practical Layout Software.
How can you do the layout of a banner, poster, or sign which is over 48 inches? PageMaker and QuarkXpress cannot handle a banner 50 inches wide, yet wide format printers can print 50, 60 or more inches wide. A wide format printer can print 40 or 50 feet long, however long your system hardware and software allow (the paper in a wide format printer is usually a roll 100 feet long).
Of course you can enlarge a PageMaker or QuarkXpress file, and other solutions can be found, but the most practical solution is to buy Adobe InDesign. This software can handle a banner up to 18 feet long.
