For this tutorial, we’re going to use two different fonts (Brandon and Shorelines that you could download in dafont.com). You can use any fonts that you want that you think would work together. Once you’ve chosen your fonts type in your text. I used Brandon Font for the “Crigger” and Shorelines for “Michael and Kendell”.

What we’re going to do first is the “Michael and Kendell”. Take the letter space and go down.

If you will check, the letters aren’t perfect so what we’re going to do is to choose “Ungroup”. What you’re going to see is that each letter will have its own layer, this way you can kern your fonts. Once done, select “Weld”.
