How did I do this?

I lost the original psd for this website banner (hard drive malfunction) and now the client wants to make a change to it, so I figured, no big deal I'll just remake it, only problem is, 1. I dont know what font I used, I downloaded it from the internet and dont remember what it was called. 2. I cant recreate that text effect. I know it was done just with text and blending styles - possibly including gradient overlay, stroke, drop shadow and bevel but I just cant get it right

Hi Nancy,
The font looks similar to Comic Sans MS in Win XP. There are also a bunch of fonts which look just like this at www.clipart.com in the Font section of the site.
The effect looks like one of the Plastic layer styles in PS.
Regards, Murray

This certainly isn't the exact font but it could be somewhat similar....looks right at about 60pt...just type your heading in to the sample box there to see.

not so much bothered about the font as the blending styles on it. At the end of the day the client isnt going to notice the minute details between different fonts.

Layer Style for text

Well perhaps this is kind of what you want. A black color and then use inner bevel style and technique smooth in the layer style menue

This is the wrong font but if the effect is close enough let me know and I'll guide you through it.
