52 Effective and Free High Resolution Paper Textures – A Designers ‘Must Have’ Resource!

You can never have enough paper textures in your library of design resources. For me, it’s the biggest individual subject of resource that I have in my forever growing collection of downloads and today it just got bigger. Here I have compiled what I consider a very useful and effective assortment of paper textures. Use them as backgrounds, convert them into Photoshop brushes, edit them for textures or simply print them and go crazy – abuse and use them all for free.

However, if you intend on using them commercially please refer to the original creators terms and conditions. I have checked and the majority are safe for commercial purposes. Enjoy and be sure to share.

37 Vintage Paper Textures

Each and every beautiful, high-resolution vintage paper textures within this pack has been sourced from our rapidly growing private library of pre-1900 books (some are more than 300 years old!). While we primarily use these books to source illustrations, we have recently started turning to them for their perfectly imperfect textures. (Purchase $14)

94 Vintage Leather & Paper Textures

This superb collection of high-resolution vintage textures were collected from a 1789 pocket journal that we acquired for $110 (an absolute steal!). We were so excited to find this piece of history and even more so when we found what was within. (Purchase $19)
