Retro Striped Text Effect Photoshop Tutorial (+FREE Textures)

Over the years I’ve shared several tutorials showing how to create retro text effects mostly using Adobe Illustrator, so today I thought I’d mix things up and show some techniques for creating retro striped text effects with a 70s vibe using tools in Photoshop.
Photoshop’s Layer Style tools are the natural place to start, but as we’ll discover they don’t quite cut it. Instead, we’ll make use of the ‘Step and Repeat’ trick to generate an extended drop shadow effect that can then be divided up into coloured stripes.
This kind of retro text effect is ideal for creating T-shirt designs, so stick around until the end to see how my ‘Washed & Worn’ textures pack can easily make your artwork look like an old cracked T-shirt print.
