Styles and Materials
Art Text comes packed with a wide selection of text styles, surface materials, and effects. You are not bound by any of the presets, let your creativity take flight by playing around with textures, surface bump maps, environment textures, light spots and shadows, and other settings to come up with new materials.
Art Text implements 3D modeling engine which helps to convert any text, symbol or pictogram to 3D. Our graphic design software embeds 3D renderer together with tons of customizable 3D materials to ensure super realistic results every time.
Special 2D materials open the door to an array of visual effects, such as bumping or embossing, you may also apply a glass, plastic or gold finish, you can make the surface glossy, matted, bright or faded, as well as giving your graphic a fascinating watercolor, oil paint, pencil or drawing look. The most demanding users will find the material editor handy for creating their own Shading Materials.
Go beyond simple color fill by applying photo textures to give your text a grunge, nature, wood, paper, stone, or a watercolor texture as well as many more surfaces. All textures are tileable, allowing you to achieve uniform surfaces no matter the setting of the texture scale.

Art Text 3 WOW
I had already thought Art Text 2 was AWESOME — never imagined that you fine people could improve on an already perfect software - but YOU DID - AND HOW!!!!! Art Text 3 is SUPERB. The templates and choices of layout and texts, 2D and 3D and backgrounds abundant - and OMG - I could go on and on and on! Thank you so much for this very affordable PROFESSIONAL software! Good luck to everyone! Continue the great work!
A Great App That Just Got Better
...This is, for its intended purpose, a stunning graphic tool! Very quick & easy to use. The combinations of effects possible is almost limitless (almost, but not quite, limited only by one’s imagination!). The only thing that would make Art Text 3 a truly awesome app would be the ability to add your own textures and masks (not customized versions of the presets) for use with 3D text & shapes.
