Every once in a while I come across a great website -- no gimmicks, no sign-up, no hard sales pitches, worthy of mentioning on my blog. Cooltext.com is one of those sites to bookmark. Visit the site and start creating your own button for website or blog. The process is simple, even if somewhat limited. Change text, font size button shapes, colors, and add effects. Once you "render" the button the site gives you all images necessary and even the HTML code to put on your site to make the images display or show their effects (such as change on mouseover.)
Best of all, unlike some other free sites, the images do not contained embedded links and advertisements.
