How to Draw Text in Snapchat


ShaunAyala-Wanted-posterAs it is now, it’s a little challenging to add multiple lines of texts creatively to your Snaps so getting across your idea in one snap may get a little challenging. But every challenge has somewhat of a silver lining, depending on how you want to add text to your snap, the below tip will show you how to add text using the drawing tool! GENIUS RIGHT?!  I was reminded of this little nugget when a friend asked, “Shaun, how did you draw text so neatly to your “WANTED Poster Snap art story?” Well, keep reading, and I’ll share and show you how!

In the “WANTED Poster” I created, you will notice 4 lines of drawn text and 1 line of actual text with my name on it. Truthfully, trying to draw each letter, keeping the correct space, the right hight and readability is a struggle, The trick here is to use your text tool, type  the word you want, scale/position it, use your phones zoom feature and trace it using the drawing tool. It’s that simple! Okay .. let me now SHOW you what I mean.

NOTE: You will need a stylus pen to make this look as neat as possible.

Let’s start with recreating the below phrase “Learn how to draw text”
