This is not elegant, but it works.  Try a drawing program.

I have used Lotus Freelance on our PCs.  Unlike word processors or DTP
packages, it is so stupid that it will print type that is too large for
one page.  It is simple enough to tape them together afterwards.  I have
made titles in a font at least 6 cm high.  It is also trivial to mix
different fonts.
