DIY Aisle Runner

I've been reading up on step by step instructions on how to make your own aisle runner with your monogram. I've opened up our monogram image in Publisher and expanded it out to 36x36 and I'm suppose to be able to print it out with numerous pages and just tape the pages together so I can start the tracing. But for some reason, it's only printing out a small portion of the monogram on one piece of paper. What am I doing wrong?

Hey!


I have never used publisher but I worked on mine today. What I did was create my monogram and save it is a jpeg. I created mine in powerpoint but I guess you could do it in any program. Then I inserted it into an excel sheet and expanded it onto multiple pages to print. This may not be the most efficient way, but it worked for me!


HTH!

I'm not sure but you could always take your design to a printer and have them blow it up for you.

Does your monogram have letters that overlap (I know this has NOTHING to do with printing it, but I have an idea up my sleeve....)

Hehe, thanks Sept27bride! I suppose I should just take it to a Kinkos and have it blown up. I appreciate your help :)
