black label text effect?

Okay, my first time posting here, I hope I'm doing all of this right.

I've been seeing a lot of a certain text effect on icons, and wanted to know how to do it. I did check the memories (this was pretty close to what I was looking for, but wasn't specific).

Here is an example of what I mean:

It's not always tilted like that; sometimes it's upright, but that's a basic example. Can you guys help me out?

Question about sharpening

I use PSP 7 when I'm making icons and I'm noticing that when I sharpen I sometimes get an almost jagged looking edge on faces and clothes like this:



I'm wondering if there are ways around it and so far the best thing I can think of is using unsharp mask rather than sharpen but I'm not sure what settings to use for it. I want the image to be clear but not rough like this one

Any thoughts?
