Art Text Lite is a layer-based design application for turning text into art and creating logos, application icons, web graphics, and buttons. With Art Text Lite you will get professional results without the steep learning curve of Photoshop or Illustrator.

Full version is available for just $19.99
The full version includes the ability to import your own images and textures, edit and create shading materials, as well as draw your own and edit the supplied vector shapes. It also includes 360 templates, 600 vector icons, 250 materials, and more.

Some ideas for using Art Text Lite:

● Catchy headings for promotional brochures and fliers.
● Unique titles for Keynote presentations
● Icon for an upcoming iPhone/iPad application
● Logo for a new business venture
● Web graphics for a client's site

Customizable Templates

The Template Gallery in Art Text Lite comes with 35 fully customizable templates (360 in full version) for headings, buttons, icons, and logos.

Work with Vector Graphics

The library of 28 vector icons (600 in full version) and shapes gives you a full palette for designing a company logo or graphic for the web. You can also import vector artwork in EPS format or use the powerful Vector Editor to create shapes from scratch.

Materials, Textures, and Fills

You can give design elements any look you want in Art Text Lite. The collection of 40 materials (250 in full version) give objects a realistic metal, glass, or plastic look that can easily be customized using the super easy parameters or the advanced Material Editor (in full version only).

A texture is basically an image file that you can use to fill a shape or text, and Art Text Lite comes with 190 of them. The full version allows you to import your favorite images in widespread formats. This can be a great way to frame and add fun captions to beloved photos.

Art Text Lite can also give letters and objects a radial or linear gradient fill with up to three colors. Add a gradient, stroke, and shadow to text to get some striking typography.

Bend and Warp Text

Bring text to life using 20 adjustable vector transformations (full version contains 4 additional transformations based on Bezier splines). Wrap text around objects or just give it a unique look that stands out.

easy for beginner

We are getting married next month and doing pretty much everything ourselves. We are giving out wine glasses. So my printing project was to make a thankyou note shaped like a donut that fit around the stem of a wine glass. Specifically I needed to make the text print in a circle. Also, I should mention that I have really no expertise in this area of printing graphic design and page layout at all, though I'm pretty good with technology in general.

It took me just about an hour and a half, coming from absolutely no knowedge of the software, to get it right. It's trickier than you might think to not get the text upside down or backwards. In any case, I am working with a a mac mini bought in 2013 and had no problems with crashes or anything else. This is a very intuitive and easy to use app. It did what I needed it to do easily. And thank you and best of luck to the company that makes it.


I’m a graphic designer and use Photoshop often. Sometimes you need just a piece of headline type and you need it fast. This app fits that bill. I would have given it 5 stars but it’s kerning capabilities aren’t all that great. Maybe it was the font I was using? Otherwise, I highly recommend this app.

Good, stable, handy

easy to work with - simple - not fancy — serves the purpose for occassional use. i am not a graphic designer - but I am able use it for a variety of projects at home and at work
