If you want to resize, do that now before adding any text
Add the copyright info and license number for the JM Leotti tube
Convert to raster
Effects, plugins, Eye Candy 4000 - Gradient Glow:
On the color tab choose white
On the basic tab 8, 25, 100, draw box checked
Lower the opacity of this layer to 70%
For my text I used Easy Street, #225060 but any nice script font would do :)
I gave it the same Gradien Glow as the CR
Merge visible and save as a png file
