What is Word Art?

From its initial release on Microsoft Windows 95, WordArt has helped jazz up millions of book reports, signs, logos, and presentations. It was widely available and user-friendly, which lead to its use and abuse throughout the 90's and early 2000's.

Why make this site?

I remember turning in book reports for elementary school and spending more time customizing the WordArt on the cover than on the actual content of the report itself. WordArt was used and abused everywhere for years, and then suddenly it disappeared. I haven’t seen it used in years now. It just feels right to bring it back. I want to use it in iMessage. I want to slap it on business presentations. It’s funny, it’s nostalgic, it’s somehow beautiful. It's lovably tacky type.

Can I add WordArt to iMessage?

Yeah baby! After you've added all your words to your artboard and you've stretched, rotated, and positioned to your heart's desire, you can click the "Finish" button. This will save your creation as an image that you can copy and paste directly into iMessage or any other program or app that supports images.

Can I add WordArt to Google Docs?

Google docs

H*ck yeah! Once you're done with your creation, hit the "Finish" button and copy and paste your final image into Google Docs. Alternatively, you can download the image and drag and drop it in your document.

Is this an official Microsoft website?

Nooooope. They own all their respective copyrights & stuff. This is just a fan site.

Who made this?

My name is Mike McMillan and I'm a Chicago based web designer and web developer. I'm currently looking for new opportunities - hit me up if you have a project in mind or need a website.
