So here's my problem. No matter what texture I use or setting I change, my textures always zig-zag all over the object and it looks awful.

I've followed YouTube tutorials to see if I was missing something, but I don't appear to be.

I'm uploading a picture to show what I mean:

If someone can please advise me here as it's holding up my sponsorship logo.

Many thanks!

    $\begingroup$ Have you UV unwrapped the mesh? Maybe you could upload your blendfile? $\endgroup$ – gladys Aug 14 '15 at 12:11

  • $\begingroup$ you can upload it to some hosting service (e.g. pasteall or blendexchange) and put the link here. $\endgroup$ – gladys Aug 14 '15 at 12:24

Convert your curves into a mesh in object mode ALT+C, but I would make a copy of curved mesh just in case. Then I would go to the topview in edit mode and U --> project from view. Then you can add your texture to the mesh
