Why do my sliced letters look bad?

I’m working on a small project for a friend. I’m slicing letters but when I separate them I notice they look unaligned. Is it the font I’m using (I’ve already tried different fonts) or am I doing something wrong? Is it an optical illusion?

Answer

They are unaligned because that’s what you are literally doing…you are cutting letters in half and then misaligning them by spreading the parts apart.

Normally, when this ‘overlaid banner’ technique is uses it’s truly an overlay. You’re not cutting any letters, but just overlaying on top of whole letters.

What would help in your example is to use a base font that condensed (ie, taller than they are wide). That way you can overlay your banner without having to manipulate the original type much. Something like this as a suggestion:
