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!
Today’s freebies is a photoshop vector template of 3 skateboard decks. You can add your own design by clicking on the smart layer for that deck design. Do your design then save it and it should show up on the board with the highlights / shadows and the correct shape.
