How to make 3D text: Use our Interactive Typography Templates! A collection of 20 lettering templates that have dimensional shading effects. These layers of live type will automatically update when you change the font and wording.
You can use these for t-shirt designs, logos, product packaging, book covers, web banners, or anything else you can think of. These can be placed over ANY background, even place your type over a photo.
These will work with system fonts, purchased fonts, and free fonts. Some fonts will just look better depending on the template you are using, so it’s good to try different options to see what combination of template and typeface looks best.
The great thing about these templates is that you can always go back and change the wording, letter spacing, scale, or typeface and all the shading effects will automatically update. The backgrounds are separate from the type, so those are really easy to change to whatever you would like. Or even place your type over a photo.
Editing the colors and shading of the type can be done by users of illustrator who understand blend shapes, transparency, warp effects, and how to edit pattern tiles. If you don’t know this, not to worry. Instructions are included that will explain how to change the color and shading of the type.
These templates are compatible with Adobe Illustrator CS2 or newer (CS2, CS3, CS4, CS5, CS6 and Adobe Creative Cloud). Be sure to choose the extended license if you plan on using these on products for sale.
