Quoted from a previous post

For Text:

you need to create an image of your text in a program like Photoshop.

Just make sure it the size of the image is in multiples of 16 - i.e. 128x256, 32x256 (or any variation).

Make the letters white, and the BG black, and save as a Tiff or TGA.

Then in the emitter properties go to the Change shape tab and then import the image (via one of the "Import Image..." buttons).

For more on this, just check out the pIllusion help files: Tutorial 3: "Particle Shapes"

If you're using a multi-colour logo rather than just simple text, you'll probably want to save it out of Photoshop with an alpha channel rather than just making it black on white.
