New Iced Style Freezing A Logo Near You

April 13th, 2011
It may be spring, but icy winds are still blowing in here at Cool Text, freezing words into our new Iced logo style!Create a logo with an icy feel, and customize how much ice there is, as well as the color. You can have any color of ice you like! Cover your logo completely in ice, or give it a light frosting. Also, you can change how thick the ice looks. Make your logo appear as though it is under several feet of solid ice.Also – you can control how far the ice stretches upwards from your logo.

As always, the text color and font are fully customizable, as well as the background. Use a solid color background, or choose from one of our textures.  The ice is see-through, so if you use a background, the background will show through. Otherwise, whatever is behind the logo will show through the ice.

Now, you don’t have to travel to the north pole for your logo to get:

New Chromium Style Now Available!

April 6th, 2011
Chrome is all the rage these days… it’s a web browser, an operating system, a shiny finish to put on your tire rims or bathroom faucet, and now…there’s a new Chromium Cool Text style!

Chromium is a slick new style to give that shiny edge to your logo. The logo glows with its own brightness, which is fully customizable in color. Use one of our gradients to brighten up your logo, or pick you own color from the color chooser to give your logo the look you want. Or, if glow isn’t your thing, set the glow to the background color and it’ll disappear.

Chromium also has a cool new sparkle effect, just in case that glow around the edge just isn’t enough shine for you. The sparkles will come in the same color as the glow.

And now…sick of that silvery chrome color? The color of the chrome on your logo is fully customizable as well. If you can find it on the color spectrum, we can chrome it!

As always, the background is fully customizable, and there are hundreds of fonts to choose from.

We here at Cool Text give you:

Season’s Greetings and Announcing Live Logo Previews

November 24th, 2010

Season’s Greetings from Cool Text!

Our elves are lovingly working away at hand crafting each custom logo and our reindeer are happily hauling them to you at the speed of Santa’s sleigh. The fonts are all twinkling with holiday cheer and the Story Book style buttons are hoping to be attached to gifts soon.

The elves are very excited to announce our new live preview system for rendering logos. Now with each alteration to your complimentary custom logo design the image will magically be refreshed to show the change. We’ve really taken the Grinch out of coming up with spiffy keen logos and buttons.

Live previews means over three times as many images are sent out. To keep up with demand we’ve added oodles of extra elves for your logo rendering pleasure. Most images are fashioned and delivered in less than a second. Instant feedback means you can iterate fast and get the exact look you want.

Have a Happy Holidays and thank you for using Cool Text. Be sure to come back often and render lots of free images to keep all these elves from slacking.

“Once again we find ourselves enmeshed in the Holiday Season, that very special time of year when we join with our loved ones in sharing centuries-old traditions such as trying to find a parking space at the mall. We traditionally do this in my family by driving around the parking lot until we see a shopper emerge from the mall, then we follow her, in very much the same spirit as the Three Wise Men, who 2,000 years ago followed a star, week after week, until it led them to a parking space.” – Dave Barry

Now on the Twitter

November 2nd, 2010

Cool Text is now on the twitter. The profile is over at http://twitter.com/cool_text

Feel free to follow since it won’t be heavily updated. Pretty much announcements only.

Now Rendering Faster!

October 6th, 2010

Cool Text now has a faster rendering system.

Where before when rendering a logo you would be put into a queue with a page that would refresh, so rendering a logo would sometimes take 15 seconds or more. Now you will go directly to the result page and the rendered logos will appear much faster.

Please come by and check it out.

Now Providing Image Hosting and Unicode Support

September 17th, 2009

Cool Text is now providing web hosting for our rendered images. Previously the only way to use Cool Text was to download the images and upload them to a web server or an image hosting site. We can now host the images for you on our servers.

This makes our service easier to use than ever before. When a logo is rendered you can now get a simple HTML code that can easily be copied and pasted onto any forum or social networking site.

Also, we’ve recently added Unicode support to Cool Text. Non-latin characters will now use a Unicode font instead of being rendered as question marks. In the future, we will be translating Cool Text into additional languages that use a non-latin alphabet.

We hope you enjoy the new changes. Thank you for supporting Cool Text and please tell all your friends about the free service.

Button Renderer

November 2nd, 2008

We’ve been hard at work on an ALL NEW button generator.

It’s now available at http://cooltext.com/Buttons

The new generator gives you COMPLETE CONTROL over the design of the button.

New Mouse Over Effects:
- Bright
- Spot
- Glow
- Emboss

When a mouse over effect is selected, two images will be rendered for the
button and a simple javascript snippet will be generated for you as well.

New Button Shapes:
- Rounded Rectangle
- Squared Rectangle
- Pill
- Ellipse
- Circle

New Button Effects:
- Flat
- 3D Sharp
- 3D Round
- Bordered
- Metal 3D
- Gel
- Glass

New Shadow Styles:
- Drop Shadow
- Glow
- Mirror

The new button generator is built on a completely different rendering engine
and doesn’t use the same queueing system as the rest of the site, which means
that the new buttons will render very fast.

There are a few example designs we’ve made that can be viewed at the bottom
of our home page or via these links:
http://cooltext.com/Red-Button
http://cooltext.com/Orange-Button
http://cooltext.com/Pink-Button

The old button designs are still available at http://cooltext.com/Old-Buttons

We’ve also made some simple cosmetic changes to our site design based on user
feedback.

Of course, every service provided by Cool Text is still 100% free and can be
used completely without restriction.

We hope you enjoy the new changes. Thank you for supporting Cool Text and
please tell all your friends about the service.
