I use the OpenOffice drawing program to create large
posters all the time. It has a posterize printing
feature. You can add as much clip art to the libraries
as you wish. I also use it to create greeting cards,
envelopes, books, programs etc. Triplefold flyers,
business cards or newsletters can easily be created
with OpenOffice writer. All in Linux or Windows.
