The “Step & Repeat” Trick for Creating 3D Text in Photoshop

In today’s Photoshop tutorial we’re going to create a colourful 3D type effect, which is ideal for making fun lettering pieces or quote designs. We’ll start by creating a custom type layout using a ready-made font as a base, then I’ll show you the clever Photoshop “Step and Repeat” trick that produces the cool faux 3D appearance.
Vibrant colours are used throughout to really brighten up the artwork, which are enhanced with shading effects using Photoshop Layer Styles. The whole design is then finished off with subtle texturing with grainy details.
Stick around until the end to get your hands on my Subtle Grunge Photoshop brushes so you have all the tools you need to create the effect yourself.
