Font display program

    Does anyone know of or feel that it would be viable to build a program based online that displayed user defined text in a variety of fonts and output them as images?
    SEMrush
    Its for a tattoo website so displaying input text,words,names in a variety of custom fonts would be really appealing, however I do not know whether it's either available of possible to build/run on a shared hosting account.

    Any input would be appreciated,
    Thanks
    Scott

    There is probably already one out there, though I haven't looked. It would be very easy to write one yourself if you know a little PHP, I could probably point you at a couple of tutorials if you need.

    It can certainly be done. myfonts.com does it. You input the text you want in any font and it renders it.

    Wow DCT, cool , I don't mind paying if you have someone.

    myfonts.com does it, however it would be cool if it could be done on one page/interface.

    A display method or scroll box that lets visitors see the fonts, highlight/choose a font/font size and then a text entry box.

    Fonts that can be updated/added/removed and the output being something they can save so an image display that users can be directed to right click and save as.

    Wouldn't want the images/output saved or stored though just displayed.
    That would be all the functionality it needed.
