Text doesn’t have to be boring black-and-white. With Art Text 3, it’s easy to create stunning typography for posters, banners, newsletters—anywhere you need eye-catching text.
Start by browsing Art Text’s templates to get a sense of what the app can do. The Basic category is where to go for simple creations; since you can apply and remove any effect to your text, it’s easy to see how each one looks. Tab over to the 2D Text category for more-advanced effects: From watercolor textures (where the background bleeds through like it’s on real paper) to distorted type to type that’s cut out of an image, there’s lots to choose from.
If those don’t pack enough punch, try Art Text’s 3D templates, which make your words appear as if they were carved out of hyperrealistic materials such as stone, ice, and even cheese. With over 200 templates, along with bump maps, environment textures, and drop shadows, you’ve got endless possibilities for creating and shaping 3D type that pops off the page.
Once you’ve selected a template, tweak and combine any of the colors, textures, and shading effects to perfect the look using the panel on the right.
The Text tab offers options for adjusting text alignment, font, and spacing. But the Fill section is where the magic really happens. Here, you can add a color gradient, textures—over 500 of them, ranging from grass to metal—and realistic shading effects. As you change the angle and intensity of the light, the results appear in real time.
Need more than text to make your designs pop? Turn to Art Text’s over 750 icons and symbols for everything from invitations to sports banners to party posters. The app’s Layers feature lets you put these art bits on top of or underneath the type or blend layers together for complex compositions.
When everything is just how you want it, Art Text makes it simple to print your creation—or save it as a PDF, JPEG, TIFF, or even vector or CAD file for further tinkering in your favorite design app. No matter how you plan to use your text, you’ve got the tools to make creative typography easy.
