Welcome home banners or banners for other purposes can be made easily using desktop publishing or word processing software. Printing large banners can be a challenge, depending upon the design, because printers are not designed to print continuously. Printing a banner starts with designing a banner that can be printed and hung with continuity. With a little planning during the design phase, you can create a welcome home banner that you'll be able to print and display at your next homecoming event.

- Desktop publishing software
- Printer ink
Design your welcome home banner using a desktop publishing program or a word processor. Almost any of these programs will have a template for making a welcome home banner. While you can design your banner without a template (printing will be the same), a template allows you to take advantage of template graphics, and "welcome home" is already laid out for printing.
Set your left and right margins as low as your printer will allow to decrease spacing between the letters in your banner. Go to the "File" menu, select "Page Setup," and use the down arrow button next to the margin dialogue. Aim for a half-inch margin if your printer allows it.
Open your banner in the program you created it in. Go to "File" and click the "Print" option. The print dialogue box will open. Choose landscape mode in the page orientation dialogue.
Place ample paper in your printer and click the "Print" button to continue with the printing process. Your welcome home banner will print one page at a time. Tape your pages together to create a single welcome home banner.
