preppy text v23 tutorial





the steps

1. Ok so to save time, download this text psd -> {CLICK HERE}

2. Color your text like this -> {CLICK HERE}. Then, choose a font. Here's what I have so far:


3. Duplicate the layer twice. On the 2nd layer, use the move tool to move it to the right 1 time and down 1 time. Hide ALL the effects that are already on the layer (like inner shadow). Add a color overlay.


Add glitter by clicking "Filter >> Noise >> Add Noise" >> rasterize it! >> match your settings to mine.


I have this now:


4. On the third layer, move it to the right 2 times and down 1 time. Add a color overlay again. This time don't add glitter!


5. You should have 3 text layers now. Create 3 new layers. Merge 1 new layer with each text layer. See how my text layers look clean now?


6. Now merge all 3 text layers together. Add a 2px white stroke.


Add a 1px scanline pattern stroke.


I added a little bit of grunge to the text.


Now I added reflecting text. If you don't know how to do that than {CLICK HERE}


Then I added optional text and a pattern behind the text!
CLICK HERE if you don't know how to do optional text (I have multiple optional text tutorials), or CLICK HERE to use one of my optional text psds.
CLICK HERE if you don't know how to add a pattern behind text.
