How to do letterpress?

Recommended Posts


I'm new to Paint.NET and have been trying to get to grips with it.

I've downloaded a package of plug-ins which give me lots of different effects.

I'm wondering, is there a good way to create letterpress text in PDN? I've searched the forum and haven't found much.

I'm looking for something like this:


My background is grainy grey.

Thanks. :smile:

Looks more like embossed to me!

Letterpress (raised) type is used to emboss leather, card etc, which I'm guessing is what you mean?

Sorry - could bore you silly with the types of printing...

Whatever that is in the picture, is what I was looking for. Sorry, I'm not familiar with this stuff.

There was a tutorial for it but it was for Photoshop.

I thought I added the link to it? Here it is anyway: http://www.1stwebdesigner.com/tutorials/letterpress-embosed-text-tutorial/

I wrote a tutorial with a similar effect...just skip the part about shape3D

Thanks! That's what I'm looking for. I'll give that a try when I've a bit of time and I'll report back here with the result.
