Laser Photo Wizard Connected Text Generator
People love seeing fancy text, especially their own name. This feature makes it easy to make dramatic text signs. The connected text options is just what it sounds like, this generator will create text that is connect to a base or connected to itself. You can select the font and the size and other options. This generator will create an output image to be engraved and a black image that can be vectorized for cutting the image out. The basic styles that can be created are:
Text on a base
This is the simplest method and looks quite nice. It suffers from not connecting things like the dot on an i. You can glue the dot on or just forget it.
Text on a base with a surround radius
Adding a surround radius can connect thing like the dot on an I. Also selecting a better font make the text pop!
Text on a base, with extra space for a message
This is the same as the text on a base but extra space can be added to the base to leave room for text to be added when the item is engraved.
Text with connecting radius only
This text does not need a base as all the letters can be connected with the connection radius. Note how the connection radius was increased to connect the F to the a.
