5 Light and Grungy Paper Textures

Last April I posted a set of 8 subtle grunge textures and it has been, by far, my most downloaded texture pack this year. If you guys liked that post, then hopefully these light grunge paper textures will come in handy as well.

Also, I wanted to get some input from you guys: would you rather me post frequent smaller texture packs here on Lost and Taken or huge texture packs less frequently? I'm kind of leaning towards starting to post more frequently (3-4 times a week) but with smaller texture packs, around 3-7 my eyes that would inject more variety into the textures here, while still remaining useful. Let me know what you think!

Click on the textures below to download the high-res version or download them all in a zip file at the bottom of the post. Enjoy!

Hi, thanks for the free textures. It's very helpful.
Not a lot of selfless designers like yourself out there..

I guess that to receive the business loans from banks you should have a great reason. Nevertheless, one time I've received a consolidation loan, just because I wanted to buy a bike.

Dude! You totally rock!
The quality and colors of these is far better than 90% of what's out there.
Thank you so much.
