Since you're talking windows.... My wife's an elementary school teacher and prints multi-page banners all day long with Printshop from Broderbrund (sp?). It can be purchased for a fraction of the cost of Illustrator or QuarkXPress. The versions she'ss running we paid around $20 US, I believe the current version is Printshop 10 and can be had for around $50 US.
