How to Create a Distressed Letterpress Print Effect in Photoshop (+ FREE Textures!)

Photoshop Effects
In today’s Photoshop tutorial I’m going to show you how to add grungy, distressed, ink stamped effects to your type, logos, or illustrations. The effect resembles the letterpress printing style, or any other impact print method, like a rubber stamp, or an old typewriter. I’ll show you how to distress your clean digital artwork to give it a fuzzy, irregular appearance as if the ink is bleeding to distort the outline of the artwork, causing some areas to blend together. I will provide you with my free Dirty Surface textures to simulate how parts of a stamped print don’t have enough ink coverage, giving it that lovely textured retro print look. Then we’ll use those same dirty surface textures to finish off the artwork with a complementary dirty background to completely transform the clean digital art into a cheap letterpress print with gritty details.
