Welcome to Textcraft
 
Design your own logo or text for your website, blog, videos, screenshots, forum sig., artwork, Minecraft server, wallpaper, computer games etc. Textcraft is a 100% free online text and logo maker, and is also compatible with iPad and Android tablets.
See the guide below and also the faq for more details.

New! Added Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Hindi, Arabic, Greek and Cyrillic fonts.
 
Enter your text
 
Type your text into the box shown as "Your text here". You can have a single line of text, or up to 3 lines. Press "Create" to create your graphic using the current settings. When you're happy with the result, click on "Download" to download the file.
Use the "host" button to upload the image to Photobucket, or you can also click on "View" while you're designing your text to see how it looks like against different types of backgrounds.
Text & Border Size
 
Use the text size buttons to change the size of each line of text. You can change the size of each line by first clicking on the text box for that line, and then using the size buttons. Change the size of the border around the text by using the border size buttons.
You can also change the color of the border by clicking on the color swatch here. Whenever you change the font size or border size of the text, the image will automatically update.
Text Styles
 
You can choose a different color and font style for each line of text. Select a font by clicking on the font name, eg. "Square". The available color and texture styles for that font will appear. Scroll through the styles by using the right and left arrows. Select a style by clicking on it, and press the "Create" button to update your text using your new selection. Hint: Styles for each font are a combination of textures and solid colors. Click on the right or left arrows to get to the page with solid colors.
You can have different font styles and colors for each line of text - see details for the "Multiline" option.
Settings
 
Textcraft lets you apply some special settings to add some wow to your text. Click the "Create" button after changing these settings to update your text. drop shadow: The drop shadow option creates a darker shadow underneath your text. This can really help add depth to your text. 3d style: This option will change the perspective of the text to look as if it's receding into the distance. It's not the same as a full 3d render, but can look good for Minecraft and some other styles of text. glow: Two different glow options are available: Localized Glow This creates an unusual glow that takes it's color from the nearby edges of your text. This can look great with some styles such as lava, but may need some experimenting with. Colored Glow This is a glow using a specified color. Select the color you want to use with the swatch to the right. Note that very dark colors won't work here since the color selected is an "addition" to the overall glow, so you may need to use a strong color with this option. Note: Glow will usually only apply to the first line of text - see the multi-line option for more details.
fit lines to max width: This is a useful setting if you need your text to be created at a specific width, for example to fit as a logo on a page. This setting will ensure that the longest line of text is no bigger than the width you specify. Click to enable this option, then use the slider beside it to select your maxium width. A ruler will appear underneath your text as a guide to the selected width. 24-bit color images: Specifies whether to create the image with 24-bit color. Leave it turned off for smaller, optimized file sizes, or enable it for higher color fidelity in large images.
 
Minecraft style text
 
Use the Minecrafter and Minecraftia fonts for classical Minecraft style text, or use one of the existing text styles such as "Minescript" or "Achievement Get". Hint: You can get the Creeper face using the Minecrafter font by entering an upper-case "A".
Other text styles
 
Textcraft has a built-in style database which you can search or add to with your own style settings. The most popular styles for this month are displayed initially, or you can view the newest or top 200 styles in addition to searching by style name or submitter name. Click on the sample "Tt" text icon to load that specific style. Signup for a free account to save new styles you create.
After logging in, you have the option of saving new styles by using the "Save style" dialog box. Enter a stylename of your choice, then click the Save button. The style will be saved to your profile, so you can access it later. You can currently save up to 50 styles, but there is no limit on the amount of text you can create using these styles. You can also share the URL of your profile page to show your creations to others, or use it as a group page.
Multi-line option
 
This buttons controls whether "multi-line" mode is enabled or not. The default is switched on for multi-line mode. This means that you can have different styles of text on each line 1 to 3. Click on the text input box for each line to indicate that you want to change settings for that line. The styles box to the left will update with the current style for that particular line. You can change the text style and size settings individually for each line.
Multi-line mode off - Click the multi-line button to switch it off. Now any style settings you select will apply the same to each line of text, so for example, each line will have the same font size, font style, border size and color etc. Also each line will have glow, if glow was selected. When multi-line mode is switched on, for stylistic reasons, only the first line may have a glow effect.
Hints & Tips
 
* Keep transparency details by saving the file instead of copying and pasting - each image created on Textcraft contains a .PNG alpha channel which means it will smoothly blend into any other graphic, as long as you save the file directly from Textcraft (either using the "Download" button or right-click and "Save as.." in your web browser). * Not happy with the available sizes of text, or need to slightly tweak the font size? First select a large text size, then use the "fit to max. width" option to reduce the generated text size down to the right size. * Need hex colors? - you can specify the exact color you want for borders and glow by editing the hex value displayed in the color swatch popup.
* Use 24-bit color images for hi-fidelity work and extra software compatibility - usually having the 24-bit color option off is better for web optimized images, however you might want to use the 24-bit option for large images with dropshadows or if you're using older graphics applications which don't fully support 8-bit PNG files with transparency (eg. old versions of Paint Shop Pro and Photoshop).
