try the modifier "add uvw map", and choose a shape according to the shape of your object.

its just a matter of unwrapping it properly. if its a curved flat object. add unwrap uvw and straighten it out in the map. the texture will follow the object.

He who says it cannot be done is interrupting the man doing it.
