Design And Sell Your Own Stickers With The Logo Creator - Page 2

The program comes with several built-in fonts which you can manipulate. You can format the text in several ways such as resizing the text, rotating the text or placing it on a circle. After that, if you think the text needs a little nudging you can change the spacing between the letters and between lines. After you get the text just the way you want it, you can recolor the text. By default the text starts out with a blue-green gradient. But you can change the colors of the gradient or you can change it to a solid colored text. You can also fill the text with an image instead of a color. Finally you can add special effects such as drop shadow, blur, emboss and outline.

For my sticker I decided to put "It's A Girl!" at the top. I changed the font and then the gradient a little to echo the colors in the little frog. Then I added an outline and drop shadow. Next I wanted to add my niece's name and I wanted it to look like the little frog was announcing her name. So I first chose a font I liked from the built-in font collection. I changed the gradient to add some contrasting color in the design. Then I added an outline and a drop shadow. To make it look like the little frog was announcing her name I put the text on a curve and rotated it until it was just above his little hands.
Each themed package comes with several detail elements such as geometric shapes, lines, orbs and swooshes. Of course you can manipulate these elements the same way as the image and text elements.
To finish my sticker, I added some purple "grass". I then added a black curved line under my niece's name to draw attention to that area. Finally I added a little balloon next to the funny frog and made him say Oh! Boy! And here is the finished sticker. One of many I designed all in one weekend.
One feature of this program that I liked very much was that YOU can copyright and sell the designs that you create with The Logo Creator software. At the Logo Creator website you will find more information, a user forum which includes a gallery, tutorials and a downloadable demo version of the software.
