Naturally Word only makes things as large as 22x22; but Publisher is available and it DOES go to 24X36. Yes! I've created four lovely posters, made them pdf (with some additional assistance from graphic arts because I was a bit dim there for awhile), and sent them off for printing. I should be able to get the final results late this afternoon or on Monday. Plenty of time to laminate them before leaving work on Tuesday afternoon.
