How to Make Fancy Letters on the Computer


Fancy fonts and letters can be created in your word processing program. Microsoft Office has "WordArt" that can be used to make large fancy letters with ease. Other programs such as Power Point will allow you to make fancy letters on your computer or use graphics from various websites. Digital scrapbooking programs are another source that can be used to create fancy letters on the computer. Using "WordArt" in the Microsoft Office program is one of most convenient options for many people.
