For ages the go-to Starbucks logo maker app, to put your own name in a Starbucks logo, was at http://www.festisite.com/logo/starbucks/. However, that Starbucks logo maker app disappeared several months ago, most likely the result of a cease and desist from Starbucks’ attorneys.

If you want your text to follow the curves of the background, however, you are going to have to get a bit more creative.
As by far the most widely used image editing program is Photoshop, here is the quick(er) and dirty way to create curved text with Photoshop:
And here is the more ‘correct’ way to do it, at PhotoShopTutorials.ws.
