TUTORIAL: a discreet and yet effective text effect

Let's make something discreet today. In this post I tell you how to make a text effect that looks like simple, but has subtle features. It works well when you want a professional text without any exaggeration.

You can get this by using a text generator as told here:
- Text: Simple (type the text you want);
- Font size: Normal;
- Margin: 3;
- Background color: FFFFFF;
- Font name: FancyPants.

So that's the produced result (click to enlarge):

Extra tips:
- if you try other fonts, choose complex (but not irregular) font faces to balance the more discreet effect;
- don't think this text effect is too simple. It has nice properties to make it pleasing to eyes: shadow, subtle illumination and a slight 3D border;
- you can create many simple or complex text effects text generator catalog.
