InkBuddie - Screen Printing Effects

The much awaited follow up to the Vintage Design Co.'s No.1 product TexturePress is here. InkBuddie gives you instant screen printing effects, just by pasting your work into Photoshop. No need for actions or experience needed.

With a range of textures to switched on or off, you can create some truly amazing work in seconds. Taking inspiration from print design of the 1950s, the PSD adds effects such as:

- Halftones
- Ink Rollers
- Offset Print
- Subtle Edge Bleed
- Subtle Roughened Edges
- Print Knockouts

Please check out the videos first just to see how simple and easy it is to use.

InkBuddie uses Photoshop smart layers (smart objects), so all you have to do is paste your compound artwork in to the smart layer, save and you're done.

InkBuddie comes in 2 versions - Basic and Advanced. With the advanced version I've tried to push the limits of what Photoshop can do, but still making it easy to use and fully customisable. In the advanced video I show you how I put together the cover image and the download includes the Illustrator template to use to achieve the same results.
