My preferred method for creating lettering is CAD. There is greater precision than with any other method. (Yes, some equal CAD's precision but not exceed it.)

Take a look at:

It will give you the correct letter sizes and placement, but not the correct letterform, since they were doodled on the drawing.

Illustrator type software such as Adobe Illustrator or Coral Draw rival true CAD systems in accuracy, since they draw vector images over the raster original of the photo. The main advantage of illustrator type software over CAD is that the illustrator software gives you more control over line weights, and it geared more toward outputting text. Cad software will draw the shape you need. but will not interface well with the decal maker's output device.
