At the beginning of this year I set up my own digital shop over at creativemarket.com. Since then I’ve been selling my pre-made vintage logo designs as sets that people can buy and download to use in their own design work. Each set contains 6 editable vector .ai logos that use free fonts that can be freely download on the web. To view and purchase these sets, please go to:
To download a free sample, which contains a logo from each of the 4 sets that are currently available on my shop, click here:
The zip contains both the original and outlined files and also a text file of fonts used in all the logos.
Click below to download the PSD template with live text to edit with all the effects applied to the layer.
Below is a tutorial run through of how I did it.
1. Create you word you want to letterpress. In my case Letterpress (original, I know!)
2. Add a INNER SHADOW to the text layer.
Blend mode needs to be MULTIPLY at 50% Black.
Distance 2px and Size 4px
3. Now add a DROP SHADOW to the same text layer with the settings:
Blend mode set to NORMAL at 28% white.
Distance 1px and Size 2px.
4. Last thing to do is add a GRADIENT OVERLAY to again the same text layer.
Blend mode NORMAL at 78% Opacity.
Set the GRADIENT from Black to Dark Grey.
Style to Linear, which it should be set to by default.
Angle 90 and Scale 100%.
And hopefully you should end up with something like this!
Here are a collection of mediocre photos from my collection run through a blur filter in Photoshop CS6 to create some really nice background which look great as the main hero image or background in a website design. I have included below the Photoshop Action with the blur settings. Hopefully it will work.
