Printing problem.


im making a sign and I need letters that are 4000 pix. These letters fits a A5. First in open office I can only make 96 pix letters so I use gimp. The problem is how to print a A5 on a printer that takes max A4. I want to tejp the two pages together. Any ideas how to print?

Split the image into 2 pages using GIMP. Crude, but guaranteed to work.
