Vintage Letterpress Poster Design Photoshop Tutorial

In today’s Adobe Photoshop tutorial I’m going to take you through my process of creating a vintage style advertisement poster with letterpress print effects. We’ll start by laying out the design with a selection of fonts inspired by the era of wood type, along with some hand-drawn graphic elements using a limited 3-colour palette. Then I’ll show you some useful tricks to simulate the visual traits of old prints with the help of some Photoshop filters and my free brushes and texture packs.

  1. Hi Chris, old vinyl albums from the period can give you lots of inspiration.
    Do check out the covers of K-Tel collected hits on vinyl LPs.
    🙂 I do wish you'd mention this channel more in your mailing because these video's are a great resource too!

  2. Thanks for the tips. I have a question if anyone can help. How do you select the colours with the magic wand without having their layers selected, as you did in the video? It doesn't work for me, I had to merge all the layers and then, with this new layer selected, I could use the magic wand and pick each colour and create the colour separation layers…
