Here is how this file works.
In your layers panel you will find a bunch of folders, two of them grouped up above, five others below.
All you have to worry about is the top two.
- The first of the two is called "Deltas" this is where you find all your silver arrow-shapes that are all trek-like.
- the second one is for all the other shapes that add to the arrow-shapes. this is what makes your plaque different era's in my opinion.
All you have to do is select what shapes you want to be visible on your plaque by hiding/unhiding them
Now, just below that (in the Green layer called Shadow) this is where it gets tricky. First you must clear this layer, CTRL+A and DEL. Next you have to CTRL+Click the "deltas" and "backs'' layers that you have visible, then fill that selection on the Shadow Layer with Black. Looks much better doesnt it.
Lastly, is the Color layer (marked in blue) all you have to do is fill this with the color you want your plaque to be shaded. Have fun with this. I reccomend silver, (which you will find in my Metallic Swatch file) or blue, or copper works really well.
All the other layers are pretty straight forward, just edit them with the text tool.
One last thing: Please credit me if you use it for your own plaque.
