How can I get my text to follow the path of both the top and bottom lines in adobe illustrator?
Select the text. (Can be live text, no need to create outlines)
Object > Envelope Distort > Make with Warp...
Bulge from the drop down menu.
Move the top,
Bend slider to the left until you are happy. Negative values cause the distortion to work in the opposite direction -- so a reverse bulge.
