Sketchup isn't really for making signs.
Try this.
Start - Programs - Accessories - Paint

.
Never, under any circumstances, combine a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

HI Harry

Just to add to your post, in Paint.net you can make the fonts 780 and the norm is 72 in most programs...if that..

That's to say one letter can be 8" x 11" and in any font you have on your machine..
