How To Make Your Type Look Distressed and Add Texture PSD Tutorial

How do you quickly add texture to type in photoshop? You could do it yourself, but for $14, I’d recommend just using a preset like “TexturePress – Ink Stamp Effects” from Creative Market.

Here’s the affiliate link:

TexturePress uses Photoshop smart layers (smart objects), so all you have to do is paste your compound artwork in to the smart layer, save and you’re done. This is a product that I use every day posting artwork to my instagram account and it saves me a ton of time. Check out some recent work using it:

What you get:

2 x TexturePress PSD files (3000x2000px Landscape & Portrait)
10 Grunge Textures (PNG 3000x2000px)
5 Textures by Rob Brink (PNG 3000x2000px)
3 PS Brushes (200px)
