Newbie Vintage Text Technique


I was hoping someone could give a few pointers on replicating a "vintage" ("retro" or "classic" could also probably describe it) text effect/technique. I've tried finding a good tutorial for it, but haven't had any luck so far. Basically, I am trying to replicate something like this:

I am hoping to use it on a logo I am creating, that is composed of slightly stylized (shape-wise) text. I have tried doing it in both Photoshop and Illustrator, but have had some problems with the perspective part of it; that is, I get an involuntary 3D-effect rather than the "stamp" one in those images.

Any suggestion on how to do this? I am especially aiming for the style in the first image, which has a kind of four-tone to it.

Re: Vintage Text Technique

the first one could be achieved with a style of;
stroke & drop shadow...then make the 'fill' of that layer "0"

the second just has a white drop shadow
