The application provides all necessary tools to create a banner from scratch, to use one of the available templates or to edit a banner you have previously created.

Another option for you is to upload a ready to print banner you have in your collection. You can drag and drop a banner, use standard insert image tool, copy and paste a Christmas banner template. Use any method you like. The result will be the same!

2) Cropping the Christmas banner

A Christmas banner will be printed on standard A4 pages, thus we need to fit the size of out picture to a desired number of A4 pages. The example banner is optimized to 12-page format. To make our image perfectly fit in the specified size we clicked 'Stretch Image' check box. The deformation would be minimal and inconspicuous.

3) Print setting

We create a banner without trims. To achieve edge to edge result we recommend to click two values 'Print overlap margins' and 'Print glue margins' to be able to align image correctly and precisely.

Then we choose the size and the algorithm of scaling of the image. You will see all available algorithms in a drop down list. For our Christmas banner we chose Bilinear algorithm. You can try any of the available options. If you will not like the result, you will be able to cancel the changes.

A major challenge of printing a large format poster or banner is to get all the pieces printed precisely and correctly. Using standard applications does not ensure proper result. With RonyaSoft Poster Printer you can easily get back to banner setting and change certain parameters.

5) Banner Splicing

After your Christmas banner is printed, we recommend to organize banner pieces in a proper order. The next schemes shows an order in which your banner pages must be aligned and glued with each other. To ease the task we recommend to make four modules of your Christmas banner. Align the 1st and the 2nd page and then 7th and 8th pages. Then align two blocks together. You will get the first module.

Repeat the same actions with pages three and four, 9th and 10th, and then align them in the second module. Make the third and the fourth modules in the same way. After the modules are ready, you will easily compile them in a single banner.
