Image Textures Around Text

I am quite new to blender, and I can’t figure out how to properly add a image texture to some text, I know how to apply it and it works but this happens :

if Anybody knows how to fix the million small pictures on the curves I would be very happy XD

some info:
I’m doing this on blender render.
The texture is just any jpeg picture.
Texture added by the image or movie texture then from a file.

The texture is being mapped to the UV coordinates of the object, so every ‘face’ that makes the object has a little version of the texture applied to it. You want to try a ‘generated’ coordinate instead.
