    I make them in WORD with the help of the TEXTBOX function and different fonts downloaded for free on the internet and then installed in WORD.

    Just make the your own for low cost with the option of several hundreds of fonts, size, text and colours.

    Then just print them on high glossy photopaper. Cut to size and attached them to your base using glue or doubble sided tape.

    I've tried to do the same thing, but yours are the best I've seen. (y) How did you do the background? That's the bit I've had the most trouble with.

    Matt, When you put together a text box with Word you get the background color by choosing "fill" this can be white or a color of your choosing. I would also suggest using transparency film for your nameplates. The most important thing is to be sure you reverse the image with a photo program so you can mount your plate with the gloss side facing out.~Gary

    I'd appreciate some info on where you downloaded the fonts, too.

    I have played with the "word art" function. I like a few of these because the letters are "hollow" and the background colors show thru well.

    Ok, Matt, here we go.

    In WORD you go to VIEW and check the TOOLBAR, DRAWING.

    With that toolbar you can edit the shape of the TEXTBOX, colour of the frame, thicknes of frame, colour of background and colour of text. Some minor effects can also be added.

    Hope this helps.

    Heres a place to start:
    Free Fonts

    But I also recomend that you do a Google search on "FREE", "FONTS" and perhaps a particular style of fonts like "STAR WARS".
