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.
