Custom folder graphics
Last year someone made me a custom tv folder: link (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1081913)
I was so pleased with the result and didnt know if anyone could possibly make me a few more?
All in the same style, as if they were original folders that came on the mac...
with or without the underlined bit.
The D from disney, and the full disney logo.
The pixar text...
Hope some one can help me out...

I'm not sure how Apple achieves this effect, but it is quite a bit more difficult than it looks (at least done accurately to match perfectly).
This program does an okay job at it (Iconic). http://www.iconicosx.com/
You know what they say... once you go Mac you ain't never gonna go back.

Have a look at the free commercial icons from this company: Icon Factory. They make an application called candybar that will customize folders and icons for you.

The Layer and any Effects applied to it "pass through" the Mask and are applied to Layers below. What is white in the mask allows the Layer to pass through, what is black is "blocked", and any level of gray un between white and black allows that percentage to pass through.
So your Mask is the 'D' inverted: the letter is white, everything else in the mask is black.
The upper Layer should be set to Multiply. I played with the percentages and found somewhere around 50% gives the right look.
You then apply a Bevel and Emboss Effect to that upper Layer.
That should get you there.
