Text Around Circle


OSNN Veteran Original
So I am trying to create a logo like the attached image.

I cant seem to figure out how to write like that around a circle, or even to get the right arch to it. I am doing this in Illustrator.

Any ideas?

Yes, in Illustrator there is the same thing, but it does not write at that angle, it would write the text normal, but just going around the circle. Understand?

In corel I would draw 2 circles and once the path of the iner circle is selected the text will follow that circle and look just like the text in your example.

couldn't you just write the text then use the appearance tab to arch it and use the sliders to fine tune the arch ?

When I used the Arch tool, it distorts it, does not look like above.

And when I write along a circle (yes 2 circles) it does not work, it always ends up looking like this:




Or something to that effect. Any other suggestions, maybe a tutorial lol

Do you not have the ability to define a path and then write along it or perhaps write the text then flow it along a path?

I assume you can, I just don't know it.

Of my years of experience I have never needed too, so I don't know how. I can't seem to find a good tutorial anywhere. So I am asking for help..

*EDIT, I think I figured it out, the text to path tool that I was using was not the actual text to path took, I played around with things and found it, and it works like it should.

Thanks guys.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
