Banner-making machine

Ever been waiting for someone special at the airport and seen others there with those big welcome banners and wished you'd been just that little bit more organized? Help is on the way for all us procrastinators.

A vending machine that allows you to create your own banners sits at Schipol airport in Amsterdam just waiting for you to type in a greeting. You choose the size and design and the machine will print it out for you in less than three minutes.
It will create a banner in whatever language you want. The banners cost between $5 and $20 depending on size.
Congratulations to Oliver Janssen and Thibaud Bruna who invented this machine. I wish them much success. Hopefully one will be at the next airport I find myself waiting for a loved one.
