In this special tutorial, we will discuss how you can design your own styled 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed graphic using Adobe Photoshop. While there are literally hundreds of these kinds of graphics available on the Internet, It is sometimes best to have your own style graphic so that you can add your own personal touches to your themed materials to come up with highly personalized product catalogs, sales booklets, commercial posters and event flyers and pamphlets. So read carefully the steps below and learn how you can create your own Satisfaction Guaranteed graphics. 1. Of course, first fire up your Adobe Photoshop and create a new document. Use any dimension that you need for the size of your graphic, but it would be best to use a 300ppi resolution if this graphic is for printed elements.

2. Now, we will create the seal or badge shape. Luckily for you, Adobe Photoshop already has that custom shape in hand. Simply click on the custom shape tool first in your tools panel.

4. Next, just draw out the SEAL shape by clicking and dragging the shape into the canvass. Hold down the SHIFT key while doing this to make sure that you get a more uniformed shape with constrained proportions. Color this shape as you see fit for now.

14. Next, we add some text. Let us first add the easiest part which is the 100% number. Simply use the text tool to write 100% in big bold letters. Then, rotate the text a bit so that it is slanted. Do this by hovering your mouse over the text selection box and then moving your mouse once the rotation cursor appears.

15. Now we will enter in the words for the border. To do this, we first use the pen tool to draw a half circle path on the border area. Then, we use the type tool and click on the FIRST ANCHOR of the path. Afterwards, we just type in our text, while they follow the path that we set.
