New Shadow System

December 4th, 2012

Cool Text Logo

A drop shadow gives a logo extra flare, and often makes it look more smooth and professional. Unfortunately, only a few of our logos have had the option to add a shadow, and they gave you practically no control over how it looked.

Until now, that is!

Shadow Options

We’ve added a new shadow system to Cool Text. Now most of our styles have shadows available. We’ve also standardized how shadows are done, so a shadow on one logo will look the same as a shadow on another if you choose the same settings.

The new shadow system has options that give you control over how your shadow looks. Control how blurry the shadow is and change it’s offsets. Set to no offset to get a nice glow effect. Change the opacity to make it lighter or darker.

Come and add a shadow to your logo with Cool Text’s new shadow system!

New Molten Core Logo Style

November 17th, 2011

It’s getting hot down here at Cool Text. Volcanoes are erupting, spewing molten metals and rock all over logos in our new Molten Core logo style. This lava never dries or cools off – it just burns and flows, giving your logo a cool animated look. The best part – we deal with the volcanic ash and poisonous gases, and let you enjoy the logo.

Customize the gradient to give the logo animation a different look. With the right gradients, your logo can look like flowing water, liquid metal, or even molten gold! Customize the font, size, and background color to give your logo just the look you want.

Turn up the heat with our latest Molten Core style.

Straight from the earth’s outer core!

Aliens Invade, Bringing the New Particle Logo Style

September 15th, 2011

Now you don’t even have to travel to a galaxy far, far away to give your logo that science fiction edge you’ve been looking for. Just enter in the coordinates for Cool Text and try our new Particle logo!

The effect is designed to mimic particle traces from bubble chambers that were used to discover the elementary particles that this particular universe seems to be built out of. A bubble chamber is a vessel filled with a superheated transparent liquid (most often liquid hydrogen) used to detect electrically charged particles moving through it. Charged particles create an ionisation track, around which the liquid vaporizes, forming microscopic bubbles. Very cool stuff that definitely qualifies for Cool Text!

Customize the color of the particles (dark colors work best) and watch your logo go out of this world! Or select dark green and the “Outline Only” option to give a circuitry effect – perfect for androids and robots alike.

So honor your quarks, leptons, and gauge bosons today with:

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.
