It you have a big event coming up, such as a birthday party, anniversary or family reunion, you might decide you would like to have a banner for the occasion. You could turn to a professional, but if you have Adobe Illustrator, you can quickly create a quality banner that you can then have printed.
- Skill level:
Start the Illustrator application. Select "File" from the menu and choose "New." In the dialogue that appears, change the "Units" to "Inches" and enter the width and height you want for the banner. This should be the same as the size specifications you get from the printer you are going to use.
Select the "Type" tool from the toolbar on the left. In the options at the top, choose the font style, size and colour you want.
Drag a text box on the canvas and then type in your text.
Select "File" from the menu and choose "Save." In the dialogue, change the "Save as type" to "SVG." Name the file and click "Save."
Save a copy of your file to a disk and take it to your printer for printing.
