    Can anyone think of a font that looks like a flowing ribbon? Like a 3-d script maybe, I have been looking for a couple of hours and just can't find what I'm looking for.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Thanks, I found this one, but what I have in my head may not exist. I'm thinking the ribbon actually making the letters, like a script. Maybe its just to late and I need to rethink it in th morning.

    All I know is how to give you that banner like ribbon wave in Flexi.
    1. First type out the text
    2. Then go to "Effects" & then "Distort"
    3. Finally select the banner shape you are looking for and adjust where needed.
    Sorry if I couldn't be more help.

    How complex are you looking to go?
    A bunch of words or just a title logo?
    You can get a pretty good ribbon effect by laying out your text as a single flowing path duplicating and off setting the dupe and then using a blend between the 2.
    If you want a twisting turning ribbon you can make a ribbon brush in something like Xara and then apply it to the path to get that effect.
