Look in your Microsoft Word program. I think there is a way to do it there in Wordart.

Did you want to print inside the body of a circle or print around the edge of a circle? Both of these techniques can be done using WORD.
HTH!

Words around the outside of a circle: Like THIS?

Open a new document

Click on INSERT

Scroll down to PICTURE

Click on WordArt a dialog box will appear
I choose the box on the upper left (outline)

Click on OK type in what you want Click OK

Your outlined words will appear in your document

Find the small WordArt dialog box
To the right of Edit Text you will see abc

Click on abc and choose your shape….. you may have to alter the shape by dragging it around some…

At this time you can click on EDIT TEXT and change your font, bold, italic whatever you want it to be

Also click on the little paint bucket/brush to choose your outline and the fill for the font…

As you are doing all these things you must have the small little square around the text to do anything in WordArt



Shape of circle: Like THIS?

Open new Doc
Click on Auto shape and make a circle the size you want
Look up and see and click on INSERT
Scroll down and
Click on add text box
You will need to right click on each circle and text box to format them to have no fill
Drag the square text box over the circle
You should see the text box and the circle inside it
Center you text and type in the TEXT box, you may have to add a few spaces here and there to make the text fit the circle.
When you have the text the way you want it.. again right click on the text box and then the circle to format and click on no line for each…….

Are you using Photoshop CS or higher? You can easily create a circle text path in it, here's a quick tutorial:

If you are using Photoshop Elements, I can create the path and email it to you to use. Elements can use the text path, but cannot create it.

Thanks again Caroline for the info, but how do you change the font? I managed to do the circle but couldn't figure out that part. Any help from anyone would be greatly appreciated.

This is a good tip. It took me a few min to figure out...as I have office 2007...and I haven't used it as much as I did office xp. If you have the more current version of office...it's almost the same directions as above...but the insert is a tab on the top and word art is over to the right...don't click on picture...it'll just bring up files. Once you've followed the word art and picked your art style...the second box will have a funky looking 'A' that you can click on...if you just place your curser over the letter 'A' you'll see that it says "change wordart shape". The rest of the directions are all the same. HTH

You're welcome! You cannot "create" this in elements, but you can use the ones created in Photoshop.
