We discovered (quite by accident) that a program called
"Announcements for Windows" from Parsons Technology, does a great job
of poster titles for little $$$$$$. The program is primarily
designed for making greeting cards, but has a "banner" option what
works very well for scientific posters. It will print on a laser
printer across 4 sheets of paper and putting them together is very
easy. You can get a copy of the program for $29.95 from:
