You will need:
Font and Tube of choice
I used the great artwork of Karincoma

VM Distortion/Flipper



Ok let's begin

Open a New Image 500x200

Now copy your Tube and paste it as a new layer

Rename this layer "Blur"

Duplicate this layer and rename the duplicate "Flipper"

 

With Flipper layer active

Click on your "Selection Tool" and set at rectangle and make a selection like so



Hit the DELETE on your keyboard
Selections> Select None


Add a Drop Shadow ... with the following settings

 



Apply Drop Shadow again but this time change the Horizontal and Vertical to 2.

Now copy your Tube and paste it as a new layer

Drag this layer to the top in your layer palette (if it's not already there)
And move the Tube to the left side of your tag


Once happy with the position of your Tube apply same Drop Shadows as before
Then crop your image 500x200

Layers> Merge> Merge Visible
