Justifying text with Illustrator

I am wondering if there is any way to justify a block of text and make it look good. I know how to make it justified in Illustrator CS3, but it will be spaced out, I know justified means to make it even throughout the size of the text.

I have something like:

And make it for its all even? Any good way to do that?

Thanks,

Ryan

An option is to kern the letters and then use justified.  You may have to play with it for a while to get it right, but that will make it look better.

What is kerning the letters? Is that a feature in illustrator?

Kerning is adding spaces between the letters.  Now that I think about it, it probably won't work.  Here's how to do it.    http://www.ehow.com/how_2001394_kern-letters-adobe-illustrator.html

What if you changed the layout of the text a bit.

That may work better.  If none of those options work for you...just give it a little style.  For example, add a light gray line to the left of it and keep left justified.  Sorry I couldn't answer your question

Alrighty, I can give that a go. So there is no other options?

Thanks!

Unfortunately the justified feature is always hit or miss.  It just depends on your text.  You can try to change text sizes around.  Maybe increase your name and make the others a little smaller.  Give a little emphasis on your and then justify it.  Sorry.
