Double Strokes in Adobe Illustrator

One of the most common questions I get about typography or anything design related really, is how to add a double stroke to an object in Photoshop or Illustrator. Well, Photoshop is a different story, but in Illustrator it’s super easy and in this tutorial I walk you step-by-step through using the appearance panel to do just that!

    Hey there.
    Great tutorial vid.
    I’m new to vector graphics and read on a few pages around the web that,

    “In illustrator you NEVER simply stroke text…The stroke cuts in to the typeface ruining thicks and thins. The professional way is to double the stroke and drop it in behind.”

    The above text is from this webpage, http://www.3232design.com/blog.cfm?id=60 .

    Forgive me if this is an ignorant question, but I was just wondering if your technique (which seems like the most obvious and easy way to do it) has any effect on “ruining thicks and thins”?
    Thank you!
