About Letterpress Textures 1
Letterpress kit 1 includes 5 high-res rolled ink textures. The textures can be used to give your work that old letterpress relief print impression.
I designed this set of textures to complement my new typeface called Circus Freak. So I've elected to give away the font with the textures.
It has four styles that can be used with the textures to get a printed effect.
Using the textures to get that vintage letterpress texture effect
I use the textures in Adobe Photoshop, but you could use them in whatever application that supports .png images and layer masks.
- Open the texture
- Copy the texture
- Create a blank layer mask on your artwork.
- Alt-click your layer mask
- Paste the texture into the layer
- Scale and rotate
- Apply a smart sharpen to the texture
- Alt-click on the layer mask
Now sit back and appreciate your work. To get the most genuine effect with a chromatic typeface like the Circus Freak font, use a different texture for each layer. Or use the same texture but flip it horizontally and vertically.
