How would one add outline to a text object? Do text objects even have outline support?

Should I instead create the text in GIMP or a similar program and import them in blender to replace the text objects?

In the text font panel choose [none] as the fill type.

Notice the bevel value.

Combine two text objects for fill and outline.

If your text is in 2D, you can just convert it to mesh with Alt + C and then Inset some faces for outline with I. For 3D text i recommend this short tutorial on youtube

Another way if you're looking for specific head-on effects:

  • Duplicate your text object
  • Select the duplicate and move it a little back
  • Make its material darker
  • Go to the font tab
  • Expand the Bevel section
  • Increase the depth
