These Illustrator actions are inspired by vintage comic text effects from the 1950's. Based on a coloring technique from back in the days, the actions produce an authentic color offset by overlaying yellow, magenta and cyan. And for even more vintage comics awesomeness I have added halftone variations, 3D shadows and text outlines typical for vintage comic book text. All of that in Adobe Illustrator.

The actions come with a bonus ĘC a color chart to help you achieve genuine colors just like in the old days.

Here is what you get.

- 25 actions for Adobe Illustrator

- Adobe Illustrator swatch (includes 2 halftone patterns and 63 colors)

- 2 Adobe Illustrator graphic styles created especially for the actions

- BONUS vintage comics color chart

- detailed instructions on how to customize the action settings and the final text

This pack has everything you need to create amazing vintage comic book text effects in seconds (and in vector format). Grab it while it's hot!


- Can I customize the text after running the action?

Yes. You can change the overlaying colors, the amount of color offset, the halftone color, the shadows, the outlines. The size of the halftone and the 3D shadows are the only settings which have to be finalized while the action is running. Make sure to check the video tutorial or read the quick-guide for best results.

- How do I install the actions?

Paste the actions, the color swatch and the graphic styles in the respective Adobe Illustrator folders and load them once you open the program. Detailed instructions can be found in the quick-guide.

- One of the actions doesn't seem to produce the desired effect. What do I do?
