    The Steps

    1. Type out your text and color it using this tutorial.

    mine looks like this so far:

    2. Right click on the layer and click "Rasterize Type." Right click again and click "Blending Options."

    You're going to add an Inner Shadow, Inner Glow, and Pattern Overlay. Match your settings to mine. For the pattern overlay, use the stripe pattern I provided.

    mine looks like this:

    3. Duplicate the text layer (Layer > Duplicate Layer > Ok)

    4. Click on the original text layer. Click "Filter" > "Other" > "Offset" and match your settings to mine:

    mine looks like this so far:

    5. Create 2 new layers, drag one under the duplicated text layer and one under the original text layer. Right click on the duplicated layer and click Merge Down to merge it with the new layer. If you don't see the Merge down option than make sure you Rasterize Type. Right click on the original layer and click Merge down.

    6. Merge the 2 text layers together now. Now the text will be on one layer. Go to the Blending Options and click "Drop Shadow." Match your settings to mine with the color 2b2b2b

    mine looks like this so far:

    7. Create a new layer, drag it under the text layer, right click on the text layer and click "Merge Down."

    8. Go to the blending options. You're going to add a Pattern Overlay and Stroke. Match your settings to mine. For the pattern overlay, use the grunge pattern I provided. For the Stroke, make the color 2b2b2b

    9. repeat step 7.

    10. Go to Blending Options. You're going to add another Pattern Overlay and another Stroke. For the pattern overlay, do exactly what you did in step 8. For the stroke overlay, match your settings to mine with your gradient.

    11. Stop there or repeat step 7 and then Stroke at 1px using your scanline pattern. Create an optional drop shadow:
    Distance: 0
    Size: 3

    Finished Product:
