Text effect

What is this text effect called? Embedded? Sticker? I found free actions for those but the effect I want isn't really embedded and the sticker action has white border all around. Are there are actions/tuts out there to get this specific effect? Thanks.

Re: Text effect

Hi Denden...

To clarify... are you looking assistance on:
a. Identifying the font style used?
b. How to "wrap the text around an object," such as a puck, a bat or whatever?
c. Getting the depth effect of the text?
d. How to get the "8" (or another number) on top of the puck?

Knowing which of the above will hopefully help.

Also: It would help if you described your project, perhaps upload a sample photo or two with a brief explanation of where you're trying to go.

Re: Text effect

Hi, Danny. I'd like to know how to make the text (number 8 and the kid's name) look like it's painted (or glued) on the puck with a natural look (i.e., not Photoshopped). Is that what you mean by "depth effect"?

I'm planning on doing the same thing: putting a number and a name on a puck. I'll try doing a Transform to fit the text on the puck but I'm not sure how to "blend" the text with the puck. (Update: Based on your suggestion in your email, I Googled "displacement maps" and that technique might just be what I'm looking for.)
