Help with text asap

Can someone pleaase help me!!!
Im trying to make a logo… i want the text to be in a circular shape and the envelope distort is not doing the job… how can i do this? i want the one text on top of circle and one on bottom of the circle but want it to be a perfect circular shape … how do i make that happen because so far its not working… someone please help me!

Do you want to send me the illustrator file? Or a screenshot? I can’t look at it right now as we’re about to break the fast but I’m happy to look at it later tonight

i usually draw a circle and then type on the path.

I would do what Hadassy said, that’s what I’ve done in the past too
