          The word it self is using a drop shadow and a warp. Create your text in the top tool bar while the text is highlighted, click on the warp text icon, as shown in the attachment.

          Then select arc and finally adjust the bend to your hearts content.

            I was in the middle of answering this when that PITA Security Shield fake virus reared its ugly head on my system, but I'll add my two cents worth albiet a bit late.


            The only thing I'll add to Silkrooster's reply, is to use the Arch as opposed to the Arc preset, which will keep the character verticals vertical.

              I figured out how to warp the text, but I can't figure out how to get the outline on the text. Would you happen to know what font is being used in the picture?

                In Illustrator terms the text is using a stroke with no fill. Therefore, use styles to give the text a stroke and change the fill to 0. Don't change the opacity as that will effect the style. The fill will reduce the opacity of the text without effecting the style.


                For the stroke, play with the position setting as that will effect the sharpness of the corners for the stroke.

                  For the solid drop shadow, set the Opacity to 100%, the spread to 100%, and the Size to 0Px.


                  The "G" and "R" remind me of Helvetica, in a condensed version.
