    Hey all,

    I'm playing around with text right now... Just trying to figure out how to do some effects and play with different fonts - no biggie. I'm trying to replicate the famous "Tapout" logo (just to see if I can do it)

    Anyone have any idea on how to make this? I'm trying TLC and Photoshop CS3; I also can't quite figure out the font they used....

    Heyya Skitzo.

    I remember reading about this logo somewhere.
    I think it was created with Microsoft Word Art.

    If you have MS Word, check out Word Art (that should be included with it). See if you can re-create the logo this way.

    Cool idea.
    I'll see if I can give it a shot using TLC.

    Broderbund PrintShop and Print Master both have Word Art in it also ..you can shape it, outline, insert images, even gradient coloring and whole bunch of other options.

    Well, here's my quick attempt at it using Xara Xtreme Pro, but I had to edit the 'a, u, and t'. I tried it in Word, but I didn't have a decent 'outlined' font to play with. I tried in TLC but couldn't curve the fonts the way I wanted to nor could I redraw any letters. I think the original artist did a lot by hand versus a program generated effect, but just my 2 cents. Later.

    Awalk - now that is on the money!! What font did you use?

    Wait a second.... let me try something...

    Yep, Marc was correct; It was done in Word. I don't know how to do the outline but here is a 5 second rendering using "impact"

    At first, I thought the name of the type font might be "STOP," but when I looked it up, it was probably more futuristic than the font used for this logo. And, yes, the type mod can be done in MS Publisher - with the outline using the Word Art subprogram. But, the special work done on overlapping the "T" will probably have to be done in Illustrator. I like the simplicity of that logo.
