You change the page size of your sign project in the printer setup. The max dimensions are limited by your printer's capabilities so you may need to switch to the PDF printer in order to enter numbers bigger than the size of paper your printer can handle.

If you want to use letter size paper and tape them together, then use the banner project instead.

Another method for printing on letter size paper is to use the oversize printing method.

1. On the Design Desk with your project open, click the Print button on the Standard toolbar or choose Print from the File menu.

The Print dialog box displays.

Note: Options in the Print dialog box vary depending upon the type of project you are printing.

2. Click Output Size.

The Custom Print Size dialog box displays.

3. Do one of the following:

a. Type the number of inches for width in the Inches Wide box.

b. Type the number of inches for height in the Inches Tall box.

c. Type a percentage of the size relative to the original project (100 percent) in the Scale box.

When you type changes to one of these boxes, the others adjust to maintain proportions of the project.

4. Type the number of sheets of paper to use either to accommodate the width in the Sheets Wide box or to accommodate the height in the Sheets Tall box.

Note: To ensure that your project fits on the same page, change the Sheets Tall box to 1.

The Print Shop adjusts the dimensions in the other boxes to maintain the original proportions of your project.

5. Click Show to update all the fields to the correct proportions, according to your changes.

6. Click OK in the Custom Print Size dialog box to return to the Print dialog box.

7. If you want to print just some of the tiles, or portions of each sheet, click Which Tiles.

The Tiles to Print dialog box displays.

8. In the Preview area, click the tiles on each sheet that you want to print.

9. Click OK to return to the Print dialog box.

10. Select other checkboxes and options, as appropriate to the project you are printing.

11. Click Print.

The project is printed.

Yes, the Output Size feature is the way to go for printing onto several sheets of paper that will be taped together to form a big poster. The banner project only expands in one direction. Good call, Brandy
