preppy text tutorial version two
♥ Don't forget to credit mascara.
you'll be making this text (example in sign)
step one:create your sign, then on the same document, type out your text & kern it to your liking.
the name of the font that i used is: Mont Heavy DEMO.
while your color scheme is open, make a new document to create a gradient with the same pixels (width) as your text and your height as 1px. then colorize how you would normally as so.
add your blending option settings.
step two:rasterize the text layer. duplicate that same layer & move that layer down once and right once. then add a color overlay of #333333 (black) and rasterize. duplicate that layer and move it down and right twice. then go back to the second layer and add your noise settings.
rasterize all text layers.
step three:on your only text layer, add a 2px #ffffff (white) stroke. rasterize.
add a 1px scanline stroke. rasterize.
finish decorating & you're done.
