Let's start out by creating a new file. I used a 500 x 500 pixels canvas set at 72dpi, and I filled my background with a white color. Save the blank fitted template below and insert into your canvas.
Now lets add a custom fitted using the Horizontal Type Tool. First set the font family to Wingdings, 110 pt, crisp and white color shade. In a new text layer type 'z' which is a 'no smoking' logo.
Under Layer Style(Layer > Layer Style) add a Drop Shadow, Inner Shadow, Outer Glow, Inner Glow and Satin blending options to your text layer. Then set the layers blending mode to Lighten.
With all that blending options added to your text layer the regular white logo should now blend into the fitted.
Here we have another fitted with a different logo. Type '@' to get the icon on your text tool.
A spiderman fitted? '!' on your text tool. You can experiment with different icons, the layer styles from step three will do the blending.
Custom Fitted Logos.
