Rubber Stamp Text Effect Introduction
Rubber Stamp Effect

Although this tutorial shows a rubber stamp effect on text, the same techniques can be used to create a grunge or distressed effect for text or for graphics.

This tutorial will show you how to apply a stamp effect to text or an image with Photoshop. In this case, we will mimic a rubber stamp, but this effect can also be used to create a grunge or distressed effect on text or graphics.

I'm using Photoshop CS5 for my screen shots, but the tutorial should be compatible with older and newer versions of Photoshop.

Photoshop Elements, GIMP, and Paint.NET versions of this tutorial are also available.
