I do adjust the sizing sometimes.

What exactly are you trying to do with the text?

Never drag the text to resize, always do resizing via font size.

That's your problem.

Don't adjust the text by dragging it do it by changing the actual font size.

Thanks Plazz and MJB, I've been dragging so I'll have to try and adjust fonts and sizes instead,

As for what Im trying to do with the text, Im not real sure Ive been experimenting but havent been able to come up with much, I thought a simple black font at an angle would look good but none of the fonts Ive tried seem to work so, Im not real sure how to proceed.

Fonts suck. They either make or break the sig and I always have trouble picking the right one.

Simple and tricky don't work.

If you're going simple, you also gotta be subtle. So I'd suggest you just put it in a corner or middle side, and don't try and turn it or do anything else do it. You can also try and blend it colour wise. You don't necessarily want the text to be that visible unless it's conveying a message.

Here is a couple more attempts, its about as good as Ive managed to get.





I gotta agree MJB, fonts and text in general have been my archilles heel of sig making, its tough to pick a font and blending technique that works, Plazz seems to often have the answer as far as fonts go but I cant pickem.

Yeah text is probably the hardest part in a design, but once you get it right, you know it.

LOVE the Barnett one and I think the Overeem would be amazing with just the primary pic. Your work always seems to change. You got so many graphic ideas bouncing around in your head it amazes me.

Your font is still all choppy. I'm really not sure why it's like that now.
