If you want to add excitement to a title, watermark, or other text in your Microsoft Word document, use WordArt. WordArt enables text effects such as skewing, shadowing, rotating, and stretching in a variety of shapes and colors. You can even include three-dimensional effects.

Examples of WordArt

Easy to access and easy to add

To add WordArt, first display the Drawing toolbar by clicking Toolbars on the View menu and then clicking Drawing. On the Drawing toolbar, click the Insert WordArt button.

Word displays a visually rich preview window where you can view the 30 built-in WordArt effects and choose the one you want to use.
