preppy text tutorial version three

♥ 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: Museo 700.

have your color scheme open. use the first color of your scheme and change the first color of your text to match it. then do the same for the rest of the colors.

add your blending option settings.


step two:

duplicate your text layer. on the second layer, move it down and right once each. add a color overlay of #000000 (black) and set the mode to "overlay." duplicate this layer and move it down and right three times. add a color overlay of #333333 or any dark grey you prefer and change the mode setting to normal / solid.

merge all text layers and add a 2px stroke of any light grey and a drop shadow. rasterize.

finish editing your text with decoration & some optional text.
