The most joyful season of the year is here! And there are lots of cards to me made, calendars to be decorated, promotional ads to be created, twitter backgrounds to be customized. Whatever you may be doing, here are 7 Christmas editable graphic styles, created in illustrator, I hope you will like and find useful.
They can be applied to shapes or text. Once you download the .ai file from below, open it and type anything you want and then go to your graphics styles panel (Window > Graphic Styles) to apply your favorite effect. Depending on the length of your text you might need to do some tweaking. To do that, once you’ve applied a style, just go to the appearance panel (Window > Appearance) and there you will find all the fills, strokes, and effects that were applied to create that style.
If anyone is interested all the typefaces I used to showcase these styles are Google Web Fonts and can be found here: http://www.google.com/webfonts#ReviewPlace:refine/Collection:Righteous|Knewave|Spirax|Rammetto+One|Montez|Paytone+One
You can use these styles for any project personal or commercial. Please do not distribute them as yours.
If you do use them and it’s possible, post a link in the comments below and of course, let me know what you think!
