Cardboard Textures and Objects: High Resolution Pack

Cardboard textures and objects can be used in numerous ways to give a design a raw and realistic look. Check out bern unlimited, Blog.SpoonGraphics, Jamie’s Italian, and The Resume Girl to see various uses of cardboard textures and objects in web design.

In this article you’ll find 20 free cardboard textures and objects for designers.

Cardboard Textures and Objects - Leading Image

You’ll find a variety of very high-resolution textures and pieces that you can use in any manner you choose.

They were taken using a Nikon Digital Single-Lens Reflex (DSLR) camera at 2,896 x 1,944 pixel size at a low compression rate (1:4 compression ratio). Note that some photos were cropped to save on file size, but all of them retain the same scale from the unprocessed images (i.e. they weren’t resized in an image editor).

Note: Even though you can use these textures and objects for commercial work without attribution, it would be greatly appreciated if you did! However, you cannot redistribute these textures and object without attribution.

At the bottom of the page you’ll have the option to download all the files. Alternatively, you can browse the whole set in the Six Revisions Cardboard Textures and Objects Flickr set and just grab the ones you like.

If enough people find this useful, I can follow this up with a second set of cardboard textures and objects and create a brush set based on these photos. So just let me know.
