Next, draw another path and type “Adobe Photoshop Tutorials” or your wanted text as I have done below. You may need to go to “Edit” and then “Transform” to get the text to the right angle.

Next,select the “Ellipse Tool” and change the option back to “Shape Layer” in the options palette, and draw a circle with #fcfcfc as the color and change the Fill to 33%. Put this layer beneath the merged text layers in the Layers Palette. Name this layer “Seal Base”.
