    Thanks to both of the people who replied. At present I don't know which program to use. I wondered if there was something already in my existing programs I could use. I don't have Photoshop, Illustrator or inDesign. The only picture editing programs I have are Seashore, PhotoImpression and, of course, the apps that come with my Mac. Is there a free program out there that would do what I want?

    Thanks Louishen
    I had already installed Inkscape but haven't got to grips with it yet. I am in the process of trying out Scribus. Thanks for your recommendations.

    You can also download a free, 30-day trial of Photoshop or Illustrator from Adobe.

    I prefer Illustrator, but you do as CrimsonRequiem stated..

    Layer's Magazine has a pretty good tutorial for something like this:

    Type on a Path in Adobe Illustrator | Layers Magazine
