So without further ado let's get down to work. Create a document (425*300px) then create a rectangle 425*300 px of color(1) , add a 3px stroke of color(2) and align stroke to inside. Then we will create typography. I am using font american captain(131 px) . Create typography and align it horizontally and vertically to the center. Now we will make some steps to give our typography a retro-look. First of all make a copy of your type and place it somewhere. It will be needed, if something goes wrong with your main type. Now right click on your type and create outlines. Then go to object -> compound path -> make . Converting to compound path is needed in order to edit all pieces of type simultaneously. By now your type has to have no stroke and no filling at all.
