Anyone know of any decent PS tutorials to create a coffe-cup-stain effect?
Make it for real and scan it. It'll take a fraction of the time and you get a cup of coffee out of it.
haha! Best solution ever.
Its not really that hard to do. Do a search on Google for 'cup stain vectors' paste them into your document and give them a light brown colour overlay.
Tweek the transparency and give it a darker outline. Sorted.
Making your own is always the way forward for many a reason other than getting a cuppa yourself
They will always be unique, its quicker, more fun, and gets you away from the screen....wait a minute - is that last one a good thing?
As the other guys have suggested making your own is always good as you'll know it's unique! and really is pretty simple assuming you have a scanner. I did the exact same thing for a stationery design I did on a project back at Uni, I was working on the branding for a fictional fairtrade coffee company and added the coffee stains to the business cards and letterhead!
If you get really stuck let me know and I'll see if I can dig out my scans for that.
Good point Greg, I've still got a couple somewhere too so I'm happy to send them if you aint got a scanner (you could give Greg and me feedback out of ten to see who's the undisputed king of coffee stain making).
Ooo so it's a coffee stain - stain off!
Gentlemen get your coffee cups ready!!
Let us know how you get on Tom.
