    In adobe illustrator cs3, go to effect > illustrator effects > warp > Arc Lower


    expand appearance once you have the right "bend" you're looking for and go to Object > Path > Offset Path to generate the white box around the lettering.

    You can do that with illustrator using the type on path tool for the curve.

    Start with oblong circle to get the right shape and then use the type of path tool to type out the text and convert to outlines.

    For the outline you would select the text you just outlined. Then go object ---> path ---> offset path.

    Play around with your setting till you get it right.

    In Flexi you can also se the distort and rotate it to get the same effect.

    yeah, but type on a path also rotates the letter... his example shows a "flat-top", requiring the "Arc Lower" option.

    I don't think that feature is available in Flexi basic.

    Your right, I was wrong about the type on path. I should have looked a bit closer at his pic.
