See how the characters and edges 'bleed' a little bit and the whole grunge xerox vibe of it :))

It doesn't have a xerox vibe. In my opinion this is a scan of a laser printed low resolution raster image, or perhaps it's a scan from a badly printed newspaper. The dots are a halftone pattern. Basically it's just a bad print. For the ultimate authenticity you could print a low resolution raster image of some text on a laser printer, and then scan it.

Or, you can simulate it in Photoshop.

  1. Create a new document - say about 500 to 600px wide, and type some large bold black text.

  2. Do Image > Mode > Greyscale choose Flatten, then Discard

  3. Do Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur, with radius set to 0.5px

  4. Do Image > Mode > Bitmap. Set the method to Halftone Screen. Click OK.

  5. In the dialog that opens, set the frequency to about 20, leave other settings at default.

  6. Finally do Image > Mode > RGB, and then apply the Gaussian blur again to give this very slightly blurred effect:

Note: The reason I suggested the Bitmap halftone effect rather than the standard halftone filter was to make it look extra crappy. LOL!

  • Create an image of the type.
  • Save the image as a JPG.
  • Open the JPG you just saved (not the original image)..
  • Save it as a JPG again...
  • ....repeat.

Each save of a JPG will degrade the image. Simply keep saving a jpg as a jpg, open the saved image and resave until you are happy with the degradation.

You can try this : copy all the layer you have and merge them, then apply a tiny gaussian blur to this new layer and play with the Color Halftone Filter (in Pixelate) parameters (for this kind of effect, put 0 in all the channels). Then put this layer into multiply mode or something. It should do the trick. Maybe ad a tiny Median (Noise Filter) to this layer also.

(I talk about Photoshop here)
