Vertical Text? That's Downright Crazy!by blendenzo
This one's pretty straightforward. Just make a text object. (Or load up one of your favorites that you already have made. Anything with my website address on it will do...)
In Object mode, rotate the text object 90 degrees so that the text points straight down (press [R], type "90", press [Enter]). Switch to Edit mode [Tab], select all vertices and rotate -90 degrees. Exit Edit mode [Tab], and you should now have vertical text. This effect works best with monotype fonts (all letters are the same width). Also, you'll notice that punctuation gets messed up and you may need to scale the UV mapping a bit to get the desired result.
That was almost too short to call a tutorial. Good thing I added pictures...
