How to create custom lettering online

Let's begin this discussion by looking at a few services to create personalized writings online. All you have to do is identify the service that seems to you best suited to your needs and then use it by following the instructions I will give you. Those listed below are all free and usable by all major browsers.

Cool Text

One of the first online services that I invite you to try to create lettering with custom fonts is Cool Text, considered one of the best of its kind. It offers a large set of fonts to customize, allowing you to choose the color and shading effects to apply to them.



If you want to create customized lettering with Cool Text, the first thing you need to do is click here to connect to the main page of the service and then press on the type of writing you want to use for your creation, choosing one of those available.

After making all the desired changes, press the button Create Logo, wait a few moments for the writing to be processed and then click on the link Download (located at the top left) to download the personalized text on your computer.

Flaming Text

As an alternative to Cool Text, I suggest you use Flaming Text, an online service that allows you to create writings and logos offering ample customization possibilities. Basically it is free, but it applies a watermark to the work done, which can only be removed by subscribing to a Premium subscription, with costs starting from 2,99 euros / month.

To create customized lettering with Flaming text, click here to connect to the main page of the service and select the type of lettering you want to use, choosing one of the many available. In the new page that opens, press the button Edit logo and fill out the form located next to the item Logo Text typing the text you want to use for your personalized text.

Then use the indicator placed on the adjustment bar next to the item font Size to change the size of your writing and click on the drop-down menu next to the item Font to select a font other than the default. Pressing on the voice AdvancedInstead, you can access a whole series of advanced options for customizing the lettering (available only for Premium users).

If the result obtained is not yet to your liking, you can make further changes to the work done by pressing on the tabs Logo, Shadow, background e Image and take advantage of the appropriate commands and options available to change the shading, colors and much more. When finished, press the button Next and, on the page that opens, presses the button Download to download the image containing the personalized text on your PC, or press the button Buy Logo to purchase the version of the image without watermark (to be used, possibly, also for commercial purposes).



Keep in mind that you can also share the writing on social networks or request the HTML code by clicking on the appropriate buttons. For more sharing options, just click on the item More options.

Graffiti Gen.

Another great service that I suggest you try to create custom lettering is Graffiti Gen.. This is a simple (but absolutely great) resource that allows you to create custom graffiti-style lettering.

If you want to create custom lettering with GraffitiGen, the first thing you need to do is click here to connect to the main page of the service. Next, type any text you like in the section Your Text, choose the type of writing you most want, placing a check mark next to the font you prefer, and select a color by clicking with the mouse cursor on therainbow ring which is located in correspondence with the desired shade (to be precise, in the point where the color of your liking is).

Image Chef

Do you want to create customized writings to insert inside an image? Well then take a look at Image Chef, a free service that allows you to do just that. Its only "flaw" is that it applies a non-removable watermark to its works.


To use Image Chef, click here to connect to its main page and select one of the many models available by clicking on it. On the page that opens, then, type the message you want to add to the image in the text field under the heading Add text and modify any other elements of the image using the fields below and those located on the right side of the page. Then press the orange button Preview to view the changes made to the image with the inscription.
