View Full Version : What is the best way to get that Dymo label look

in PSCS2? I have used the punchlabel font and tried tweaking it a bit for dimension but I am not real happy with it. Any tips or tuts out there?

I prefer the font called Plastique. I think it just gives a better label look. I put a block of color under it, then add a slight bit of bevel to both.

Thanks Nancy, I will try this out.

Where did you download the plastique font? I've tried punch label and wasn't really happy with how it looked either. Thanks!

I like DymoFontInvers, also available from dafont.com.
The letters are actually blank space and I put a solid colored layer underneath the text layer. For a little dimension, then, you can apply a thin drop shadow on the colored layer if you want.

There was a tutorial for making dymos over at www.scrapmommies.com a while back in one of their newsletters, maybe it's still there. I'll take a peek and see if I can find it for ya. The ones I make look just like the real thing, LOL. At first I was using the font called Chromosome Heavy but didn't have commercial rights for it so I had to find another for when I made freebies to give away. Now the font I use is Punch Out from Lettering Delights :)

Yep, the NL with the tutorial is still on their site. If you go to their newsletter page:
You will see a list of past newsletters at the bottom and it was in the December issue :) Hope it helps!
