Typing LARGE numbers on the computer

I need to make a sign 8" x 11 " that says 63. How can I get the numbers that large, when the font stops at 72, and that is too small?

If you are using PSP, this is one way. Crop around the 63 and then open Page Setup and put a check mark on the 'Fit to Page'.


small?

What are you using to create your sign? For example if you are using MSWord. I
agree it will only show you 72 points on the scale. But if you click on the font
size (highlight it) type the font size you want and press enter. For example
entering 432 will give you a 6" character.

Bea...slight adjustment. Go to Page Layout FIRST and click on Landscape and
resize your margins, then type your number on the page, etc.





Hi Bea...I see Michael has replied with the same thing I was going to say,
but since I had just made this example I'll post it anyway. This was done
in Word: Type your number on the page, then highlight it. Go into the size
box and key in your own figure--click Enter. In page layout, click on
Landscape...then back on the page itself, stretch out your margins where I
put the red marks. I have this one set at 500. - Vicki

Bea, you can type any number in the number space. 100 or 150 whatever you
want.
