    You can use this method also for text, but you need to turn the text into outlines:

    Also you can use a grunge texture into text...with this method:

    or using styles in photoshop ( you can download grunge styles), or using powerclip in Corel Draw.

    Can be dont very easily in photoshop.. Add a layer mask onto your font (download a grunge brush) and apply the brush over the mask! :)

    Hello such, thanks for your contribution, but it seems better to do it in Illustrator, the vector method. If you know of another method in Illustrator (FONT GRUNGE) I hope to share with me.

    In illustrator, try filter -> distort & transform -> rough edges. It will make the edges of the font grungy.

    Grunge Vector Fonts

    Just be careful not to create too many points and splines in you vector, else your font might easily kill your computer (not literally, but you know, slowing everything down... )

    This one is key.
    http://gomedia.us/zine/tutorials/distressing-techniques-in-adobe-illustrator/

    If you are going to use live tracing at all to do distressing, try and use AI CS5, the algorithm for live trace is better for grunge textures than it is in the more recent versions.
