Hi,

I have never used Adobe Illustrator - I am more familiar with Photoshop.

 

I want to make some designs for Hats - to be embroidered by a printing company - they have lots of requirements and I need help please.

 

I just want to use text but it has to be a certain heigh and width etc.....and I don't know how to do it in Adobe Illustrator.

In this video https://youtu.be/aEfsyYe26Zg?t=158 they explain how to edit the text WILD for 3D puff emboridery but I don't know how they are manipulating the text, they seem to stretch it to increase size but you can't do that with Text?

Can somebody help me - I want the text: EDTECH big stretching as big as possible and then smaller below the words: Vault

 

If someone can help and provide me with the file and how to do it I would be SO grateful!

 

It's not letting me upload the .ai file - here is a link: Printful template

 

Thanks!

Jose,

 

To see the actual height/width of the actual letters, you can tick Use Preview Bounds in the General Preferences, and then you can set the desired H (and W if needed) value(s) in the Transform palette; you can hold Ctrl/Cmd+Enter to keep proportions.

 

Remember to untick Use Preview Bounds afterwards.
