SVG Logo and Text Effects (or SLATE for short)
is a WordPress plugin by dashed-slug
that helps you produce visually stunning text effects using
SVG shortcodes.

Use it to reinforce a brand identity, visually enhance your calls-to-action, or simply be more artistic,
with SVG text that you can edit at any time.
All this, without the need to resort to any image-editing software.

You can mix and match fonts, colors, fill patterns, and filters
to create unique text effects that draw attention to your content.

easy SVG text

Use shortcodes to insert fancy, eye catching, editable and SEO-friendly text into your posts, pages or custom content.


Out of the box, SVG Logo and Title Effects comes with Google fonts support. You may extend your font library with font files that you install yourself.

fill patterns

Letters are filled with a fill pattern of your choice. Fill patterns have parameters. Control various sizes, distances and colors to produce unique variations, or let the defaults work for you.

filter effects

Easily pass your SVG text through filter effects such as the built-in glow and drop shadow effects, or any other filter that you install via plugins.


Save time and use ready-made presets to style your SVG text. Then you can tweak the text settings to your liking.


Download or create plugins that let you use additional fonts, vector shapes, filter effects, fill patterns, and presets.


SVG text that has already been rendered once is subsequently loaded from a DB cache, for maximal performance. No compromises on page load speed!

safe fallbacks

Old browsers that don’t support SVG rendering will fallback to the closest HTML equivalent. Your text will be displayed no matter what!


Every release comes with PDF documents covering more than you will ever want to know about this plugin.

To get the documentation, navigate to the dashed-slug download area
and make sure to get the bundle release.

  • More Shapes extension:
    Extends the WordPress SLATE plugin to add more SVG shapes. Shapes are essentially SVG templates that allow more complex text effects.
  • WPBakery Page Builder Integration extension:
    If you have WPBakery Page Builder
    from wpbakery installed, you can avoid writing shortcodes altogether. Tweak your SVG text via a friendly graphical interface when you install VC integration.
  • Site & Page Titles Replacement extension:
    With most themes you will be able to easily apply SVG text effects to the site title or the page/post titles when you install this plugin.
  • Raster Fallbacks extension:
    Don’t settle for HTML fallback in legacy browsers. When you install this plugin, your SVG text is automatically rendered to cached PNG image fallbacks. Fallbacks are shown whenever SVG cannot be rendered for any reason.
