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.
