Follow along with today’s how-to guide to create a letterpress style poster design with overprint effects. Authentic poster art of this kind would traditionally be created by hand on a letterpress print machine, where the transfer of ink from roller to paper would naturally create the texturing and overprint appearance. Instead, we’ll be using Adobe Photoshop to mimic the style of vintage prints by using digital fonts, textures and Photoshop effects. Along the way, we’ll go over some useful techniques for creating type layouts, producing effects that realistically replicate the appearance of printed ink, and I’ll show you how layer masks can be used to apply textures that make your clean digital art look like an authentic hand-made print.
