    The illusion of curved text that wraps around an object is possible in TLC by entering each letter of your message one or two at a time. Then resizing and by placement you can create the effect. I have exagerated it in the first example in order to show you. It takes a little time and experimentation but it can be done.

    The same effect can be done with paintshop pro or similar programs and then you can import them for use in TLC. It took me a couple of minutes to find the cylinder effect but it does a great job.

    Many desktop publishing programs like The Print Shop or The Print Master by Broderbund have the ability to shape color and exports text and headline text that plays nice with TLC as is for those that need or want something easier than Adobe's PS. Besides assorted clipart, fonts you can print businesscards and letterhead by specific card stock.

    Another way to get the effect of wrapping around is to use a swoosh as a template and place individual letters following the shape.Then remove the swoosh.
