Free Services For Converting Text Into ASCII Art

There is a Linux program called banner that generates ASCII art from any text feeding to it.

If your Linux distribution doesn’t provide one, or it’s not possible to simply install it on a production system, just get an online ASCII art generator to do it.
Instead of calling the banner program to print the static ASCII art in the text console (for drawing attention to the warning message), just generate it once and copy it to file or shell script.

There are plenty of these generators in the Internet. For example, here are two neat and simple websites offer this free service:

Free online generator converts text into ASCII art.

The art changes automatically when you change the font (click the font field and then use up/down arrow key to change).

There are 4 different banner fonts!
