Fonts

Hi, I have a question regarding fonts. I see shirts and signs all the time that utilize a font that has, for lack of a better term, and outline. Usually the outline of the letters will be in one color while the inside of the letter is a different. Similar to the lettering for Coors Light. Is this type of font something I can buy or it usually done via some kind of artwork? I hope this makes sense. Anyhelp woul;d be appreciated.
Thanks
Gary

also in photoshop, you can create the "outline" by going to layer, then click on layer style. now you see many options. you can fool around with the "outer glow" option. if you want to get rid of the original text, and just have the outline, you can select "color overlay" and change the text to your backround color. hope this helps!

While it can be done in photoshop, the work is best done in a vector progran such as illustrator, freehand or coreldraw.

By doing it in a vector program, you can make the art any size you want with no loss in quality.

In photoshop you can use the art at 100% or smaller, but as you scale the image up past 100% the quality begins to degrade.
