Preppy Text V1
For this tutorial you will need...
• Any pattern or you can use this one
• Your desired pattern defined.
• A pre-done gradient or a desired colour scheme for the gradient.
First type out your text. Then create 4 blank layers, then drag your text layer right to the top.
Double click the layer to bring up the 'blending options' box, then go to 'gradient overlay'. Using your desired gradient match your setting's to mine but don't press OK.
Now go to 'stroke' and using the colour #FFFFFF (White), match your setting's to mine and then press OK and merge the layer down.
Double click the text layer again and go to 'stroke' and change the 'fill type' to 'gradient'. Using the same gradient as you did in step 2 match your setting's to mine and then go to 'pattern overlay'.
If you're using the pattern I provided then match your setting's to mine and go to 'Inner Shadow', if you're using a different pattern make sure the pattern isn't too bold but make sure it's still visible.
Now match your 'Inner Shadow' setting's to mine using the colour #000000 (Black) and then press OK.
This is my result...
