I have used WordPerfect quite successfully to make such a poster title.
You can choose fonts (ctrl-F9) and select sizes in the range of about
140-200 then each letter/word will fill a page.  By choosing a 11x8.5 
page setting and left justification, you can essentially space the 
words in such a way that they are  uniform distance from the left margin.
You can now paste the sheets in such a way that the letterings are
fairly uniform.  
A print preview option, (ShiftF7, v) helps you to get a good preview of
what the printout is going to be like.
Although I have not really tried to, you may also be able to set the 
paper type to a continous sheet and avoid the hassle of pasting it.
