    I have what might be a silly or perhaps obvious question, but I have been working in Photoshop for many years, and I am now just learning to use Illustrator. What I am wondering is if the “13 instant text effects” in this set are simply layer styles that can be applied not only to text but to shapes/graphics as well? As a simple example … if I create a star shape, can I then just apply the offset lithography effect to the shape, and it will have a similar appearance to the letter M used in the preview above? I apologize in advance if this is an obvious question to most!

      Hey Jen,

      What a great question, thank you so much for leaving us a comment and I can definitely help you with this!

      I believe that these are just text effects, but I will pop you over an email to get some more information from you :)
