High-Resolution Grungy Paper Textures

High-Resolution Grungy Paper Textures - leading image.

With textured and organic designs a current design trend, I thought it useful to provide some high-resolution grungy paper textures. This texture pack was inspired by comments from a previous Six Revisions texture pack.

In this texture pack, you will find 6 large-scale, high-resolution (2592 x 3872 pixels) textures that are available to you for free for any personal or commercial purpose. The only thing you may not do is to distribute and sell them without prior permission.


Clicking on an image will direct you to their Flickr download page where you can get them in various sizes.

Alternatively, you can browse the Six Revisions Grungy Paper Textures Flickr set that I’ve set up for you.

Are these “free” for commercial use? Are there any legal restrictions on use?

@Julie: Yes, they are free for commercial use. The only thing I ask is that if you decide to distribute them or sell them yourself, ask my permission first.

Otherwise, if you want to use them for a commercial project, in any way shape or form – feel free to use them without restriction.

Great collection indeed, but more important is the idea of snapping your own textures.

You’ve set me off looking for texture…

Thanks for sharing info and ideas.

Hi, I found my textures on a site the yesterday which they won’t remove. I decided to go through the rest of them and I found yours on there too. We both have a ‘no redistribution’ underneath so I thought you should know. They seem to be targeting DA users’ stock.

I found yours here:

I started a thread on there to have them removed if you wanted to add to it:

Good luck.
