preppy text v9 tutorial

I did not want to make the stripes on this tutorial seamless. Feel free to make yours seamless if you want. I didn't feel like making mine seamless.

What you'll need:
  • One of the Photoshop Programs


  • What you'll be making:



    The Steps

    1. Do steps 1-13 on this tutorial to create your striped pattern.

    2. Do this tutorial to create your checkered pattern.

    3. Type out your text in whatever color you want. It doesn't matter because you'll be doing a pattern overlay anyway. Make sure your text is kerned, if you're kerning it.


    4. Right click on your text layer and click "Rasterize Type."
    Right click again and click "Blending Options."
    You're going to add an "Inner Shadow", "Gradient Overlay" "Pattern Overlay", and "Stroke."


    Use the striped pattern from step 1.




    and you should have something like this



    5. Create a new layer (layer > new > layer > ok) and drag it under your text layer. Right click on your text layer and click "Merge Down."

    6. Go to Blending Options again and click Pattern Overlay again.
    Blend Mode: Color Burn.
    Opacity: 43%
    Pattern: grunge pattern I provided.

    7. Do step 5 again. Go to the Blending Options again and click "Stroke." Match your settings, but with your checkered pattern.

    8. Do step 5 again. Go to blending options again and click "Stroke." Match your settings to mine with your scanline pattern.



    You're done!
