Want to create "Ballpark Script" logo

Hi, I want to create my own logo in a "Ballpark Script" type of font ... similar to as shown in the attached picture. Would someone know of a site where I can design a logo using such a script (hopefully free!).

Thanks!

For the tail just add a number to the end e.g.
Lancaster7

To get the multiple colours you would need something like Photoshop where you could build up layers of the font at different sizes and colours and then merge them.

Thanks Gary, I'll look into that. Any other ideas on maybe a fee site where you can "design-your-own" ?

Thanks

fee site
...do you mean free site?

To do that know - no.
I suppose someone would only charge about 50$ to do it for your. Quite cheap for a logo. But it is only about 20mins work.

There are no sites that will do this for free - this is a custom logo you are wanting to make.
All the free sites just give you a choice of logos and allow you to change the font etc on the text
Or use a graphics program to do it yourself

I agree with GaryC. If you go on Craigslist, you can probably find someone who will do it for under $50. And they don't have to be close to you. The free logo maker sites aren't what you need, they have no way to customize the lettering, only the selection of the font and the actual word(s) used.

It won't get more free than the solution Gary123 points out.

Download the font http://www.fontspace.com/måns-grebäck/brannboll-fet
Install the font
Type in the name of the club
Type in one of the numbers from 0-9 to get the tail

If you need outlined edges you have to use software like Illustrator (30 day trial should be enough)

If you get to there come back again and we'll teach you how to put the color and outline on it.

Perhaps this site may be useful to you - it's an online image editor Fatpaint: Web's Best Graphic Design Software, Page & Logo Maker. Free!
Fatpaint is the worlds most advanced online graphic design software, and the best online, free graphic editor for working with page layout and creating 3D text and logos. The reason it is so is the fact that it has more graphic tools and resources incorporated into it than any other online graphics program, while still being super lightweight. It contains a vector image editor, a photo editor and advanced page layout functionality that glues everything together. At first, it may seem a bit complex to start creating graphics with Fatpaint, but if you watch some of the tutorial videos, you'll quickly understand how to do the basic stuff such as photo editing, 3D text and page layout. So, before you head out to download or buy another graphics software or image editor, give Fatpaint a chance.

If you are willing to spend $52 dollars for a professional font, take a look at http://letterheadfonts.com/fonts/indianscript2.php

Who knows, you might create a design for someone else and recoup your expense.
