1930s Pulp Scifi Magazine Cover PSD Template by garryts 1930s Pulp Scifi Magazine Cover PSD Template by garryts
If you check out my Gallery regularly, you know that I have been having a little fun with some faux 1930’s-style pulp sci-fi magazine covers. Having done quite a few of these, I realized I had ended-up with quite a set of resources in Photoshop - ideal for a template.

So here it is; my Do-It-Yourself 1930’s Pulp Scifi Magazine Cover Creator :-)

Download from here: [link]

To use the template as shown in my illustrations you will first need to download a series of fonts from dafont.com. The template contains a layer with details of all necessary fonts.

The .PSD file is pretty large; there are a LOT of layers:
• Halftone Overlay: simulates printing effect achieved using dots
• Overall Grunge: Group of several layers to add dirt, wear, creases to the image
• Text Boxes: This Group contains a series fof sub folders for all the text layers. These are:
⁃ Date month & price (the only stand-alone layer)
⁃ Magazine Titles: contains all the variations of the magazine name and style
⁃ Bold Slogans Top - Left paginated
⁃ Slogans Top - Centre Paginated
⁃ Bold Slogans Top - Right Paginated
⁃ Sub Slogan - Right Paginated
⁃ Sub Slogan - Left Paginated
⁃ Bottom Text - Left Paginated
⁃ Bottom Text - Right Paginated
• 2 x Filter Effect Groups: Strong Vintage & Soft Vintage Tint. These are to aid blend your image layers together
• Spaceships & Robots Layers: All images of spaceships & Robots. Generally, these are cut-outs
• Background Grunge Layers: A group containing grunge effects that apply to all background images
• Space & Sky: A group for all background images that feature space or sky
• Landscapes Layers: Images of planetary landscapes
• Colours & gradients: backgrounds that are colours or coloured gradients


Usage
Personal Use
Have a ball - do whatever you want with it!

Commercial Use
It is possible to use the template for commercial work BUT PLEASE REMEMBER THE FOLLOWING:
• You will need a commercial license for any of the fonts that require one for commercial work (if you use any of Nick Curtis's fonts, drop him something anyway - he'll appreciate it!)
• Similarly so for any 3d models used; you should NOT use the renders of robots or spaceships within the template for commercial work


Whatever you do with the template, I would love to see it - I had loads of fun making images with it and I hope you do to!

really nice - these covers look better than some sci-fi mags published nowadays. (for example the really famous 'Asimov's' - the content is great, but the front page design is crap)

That is so cool, thank you. I have been admiring your covers for a while and they remind me of those from when I was a kid.
