Text in a circle

You have the ability to overlay images and text and then move them forward or backwards in the layer structure. This gives you the opportunity to produce a much richer, diverse, layered design. You might think you'd need to go to Photoshop to do this, but we've got you covered!
You have granular control of the background color, the text color, and the outline color of the text.
You can add interesting design elements to your button with the Build-a-Button Design Center shapes tool. You can add hearts, stars, squares, rectangles, ovals, arrows, and straight lines. You can also change the size, thickness, color of line, and fill color.
You can save your artwork as jpg or pdf file formats. You can select how many images you save per page (1- 24, depending on the button size) to save on ink and toner. Or you can fill up an entire page for larger productions.
You can draw freehand right on the button!
You can change the transparency of images, backgrounds, shapes and text.
