Get 19th Century American Wood Cut Type Effects Instantly (Innovative Photoshop Action)
In the early 19th century breakthroughs in printing technology transformed print forms away from hand lettered script styles and into industrial, hard edged blocks of type.
For over a century print companies like Hamilton Manufacturing, Empire Wood Type Co., American Wood Type Mfg Co. and Eastern Brass & Wood Type created beautiful type for mass consumption. A huge variety of gothic, antique and slab fonts were used to create gorgeous advertisements, notices, posters and more.
In the 1920s wood type product began to decline due to faster due to offset printing technology. But wood type still lives on through a handful of printers that still practice this tradition.

Inspired by public fonts in New York in the 1970s. Authority pays tribute to the almost unnoticed but powerful effect type have on our lives.
From waiting on a cold morning to catch the 307 to Morton West High School, to the rain and snow worn stencil on a postal box. Public typography is a part of the little spaces in your lives where life actually happens.
Government designed fonts were chosen to communicate authority and help grease the gears of the day-to-day grind.
Authority beckons back to these days with it's mildly condensed feel, squared corners and strong feel.
We've also added another dimension to the typeface by creating a typeface for each time period in the fonts life including: Standard (freshly printed), Rounded (Slightly worn and used) and Aged (worn down by the day to day interactions with the world).
Use it for bold, striking headlines and subheads. Use it for the base of logos. Use it to bring Authority to your work.

Note: These chalk brushes were made using our 5-Step-Vectorization Method. The result is extremely realistic chalk brushes, so real, they're hard to tell from the real thing!
Drygoods refers to dry food and other miscellaneous household goods. The term was often used during the late 19th and early 20th century.
The DryGoods | Chalk Brushes for Illustrator Pack is a throwback to these stores.
Due to the ever-changing assortment of goods chalkboard signs and A-frame signs were used to advertise the days specials.
The DryGoods set equips you with 23 chalk Illustrator brushes. These brushes were created by using a variety of different chalks. Each with different amounts of wear and tear (for maximum diversity in your work)
Finally, we scanned them in at 600 DPI, post processed the scans in Photoshop, used premium auto trace software to convert to vector, and then minimized as many points as possible.
Admittedly, with something like chalk you still end up with a lot of points.
The result is a set of chalk brushes that look extremely real. Even though they're vector (as you can see from the examples) they look just like real chalk!
Be sure to view the Product Details tab for everything you get!
Here's what you get when you buy the pack:
Do these brushes include fills or layer styles?
Nope. These are just standard brushes for vector artists. No fancy do-it-for-you stuff in this pack. We're going old school on you ; )
Are these brushes pressure sensitive?
Again, no. They work great with a Wacom but they also work equally well for adding a chalk sign look with a mouse.
How did you get the effects in the example?
Just using the chalk brush set! I used the chalk brushes to add outlines to text, scribbled with thicker chalk brushes for fills, and then contained them in clipping masks (if you're not familiar with clipping masks look it up now! They are crazy awesome!)
