13 Free Found Paper Textures

While rummaging through the closet the other day for some lost childhood artwork, I came across a lot of cool old paper textures that I thought I'd share with you guys. I'm still in love with my new scanner (hence all of the paper textures as of late), but I'll try and keep it fresh and add in a sprinkling of other textures too.

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!

Hey Caleb, that's great stuff, especially the aged notebook files!

Please keep up the great work! I gotta finish my motion graphics reel and send you a link, cause I'm using your textures everywhere lately, a few of those clips with your textures have already been aired on tv here in Germany... I really appreciate your work so much!!!

Just a few suggestions for future textures, not requesting anything at all: lawn, moss, sand, stone plates with weed/moss, annual rings from a tree, rough glass surfaces, industrial patterns, tire tracks, polished mineral surfaces, oil, smoke, bubbles, whatever :-)

Apart fromthis I especially enjoy the unusual textures. The wet mirror pictures were expetional for example! They stimulate my brain and trigger ideas for whole new designs...

Keep up the impressive work! Thanks thanks thanks!!!
Ceers, Alex

Is your site dead, or just down for the moment? None of the download (or sample image) links work, and clicking on them just "site is down."

Sure hope things are back soon.

Thanks,
