What software are you using?
If it's Vcarve, once you type the word out and hit enter, move it to where you want the text to be then click on the icon text on a curve. your mouse pointer will change and you can either curve it up or down. Very easy.

VCarve Pro (Not exactly sure how it is done in the Desktop version)

After you have your text vectors

You will also need another curved vector to wrap the text onto --- you can delete the curved vector line after you are satisfied with the results.
