How to create a "name tape"?

Recommended Posts

Is there an effect that will make a font look like a sitched military name tape?

Examples: http://tinyurl.com/m3m9thq

 

Alternatively, is anyone aware of a font that already looks like that?

The font used in those name tapes is Franklin gothic condensed, but I need to simulate the "stitches".

 

Thank you!

Thank you for your reply, but it didn't work for me.

 

This tutorial creates a nice textile weave pattern: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/20033-plaid-fabric-texture/

 

Unfortunately, when I tried using it on black text, the result looked nothing like I need.

 

 

 

I already have the background and only need the foreground text.

 

Thank you.

Create the weave on a separate layer and cut it to match using a selection of the text as a stencil.  Try different layer blend modes to make the weave pattern overlay the text.
