New cool 3D bevel text effect styles

Since a little time ago, you can use online a big collection of 3D bevel text effects. They are realistic and can be drawn in many different bevel styles.

It's interesting to notice that these bevel text makers were improved even more recently. Now you can use more rendering parameters, giving you a whole new set of possible bevel effect designs. When using this text logo app, I suggest you spend some time playing with the different configuration elements, so you can get the 3D bevel text you like most.

To inspire you to create you own amazing bevel texts, below I show you a metallic bevel text logo that was designed by using the new customization available at this 3D Bevel Text Logo Effect Generator application (click the logo to see it in full size).

A realistic icy text logo effect

In this tutorial, we create an iceberg logo effect where the text is made of realistic ice. This effect can be very useful anytime you want to produce a banner with a "cold mood", as when creating a Christmas logo.

To design this ice text logo easily, go to this online 3D ice text logo generator and configure it as just listed:
- Ice style: Glacial;
- Text: ICEBERG (write your message);
- Border damage: None;
- Font size: Very big;
- Margin: 5;
- Background color: 000040;
- Get as a transparent PNG file: unchecked;
- Font name: Dokyo.

It's the configuration you need to produce this frozen text logo (click the image to see it in full size):

Extra tips:
- this text logo can be created with an anti-aliased transparent background (check the "Get as a transparent PNG file" box);
- if you intend to choose a white or bright background, it could be a good idea to set a darker ice style (I do like the "Blizzard" one);
- if you want to design a different kind of ice logo effect, you have many different options at these realistic icy text effect generator apps.
