100 Grungy Paper and Card Textures (Plus Bonus Tutorial)

Professional Quality Textures Perfect for Your Design Work

We’ve listened hard to the Design Cuts community, and we know how much you guys enjoy creating work with that special vintage, creative, hand-crafted feel. One of the easiest and best ways to add this kind of detailing and depth to your work is paper textures. We teamed up with our friend and professional photographer David Hampton to bring you guys the best paper/card textures we’ve seen anywhere.

Grunge Up Your Design Work, With This Huge Texture Collection

We set out to bring you the most comprehensive paper and card texture pack available anywhere. This pack includes 100 high-res textures, featuring a range of grungy paper and card surfaces. At just $10, this pack is ultimate value for money. This collection includes:

• Stained papers
• Crumpled papers
• Rough cardboard
• Washed out papers
• Mottled/ripped cardboard

These textures are perfect for adding a grungy or vintage touch to your design work. They’re incredibly easy to use and you can drag/drop them over your work in a matter of seconds.

Each texture is 4500px X 3000px (15″ X 10″), and 300 DPI resolution. This means that they’re perfect for digital and print design, even suiting very large scale works.

To produce these textures, we teamed up with professional photographer of 20 years; David Hampton. David has beautifully shot these textures to ensure they’re pixel perfect and incredibly sharp, even at full resolution. They’re rich with artistic detailing and gorgeous design touches. We hope you’ll love them!

These textures come in high-res .jpg format, and so are compatible with Photoshop, Illustrator, Photoshop Elements or any equivalent software.

    I appreciate the shout out and the display of my images. I still think this is a great texture pack. It actually made me want to explore the use of more textures in my work. It also inspired me to make some of my own.

    I look forward to more resources from your new store.

    Congratulations Design Cuts Team…

    I’m SO EXCITED to be the first one to post and wish you all well with the “NEW” Design Cuts Store!

    LOVE the Grungy Paper and Card Textures. YOU GUYS are so inspirational to all of us.

    Would you believe I took a digital shot of my banana peel yesterday for the texture! Who does that stuff???? Everything I see, I see in textures! I find myself thinking: How can I use that?

    LUV & HUGS to you all! THANK YOU for changing so many creative lives!

      Aw thanks Roz. We’re total texture addicts too, so I often find myself staring at random surfaces and imagining how it would work as a texture.

      As always, your support means the world to us. Keep creating, and keep being awesome :).

        Thank You Tom for the kind words!

        I just shared these textures and the other tutorials from the Mockup Templates with my membership.
        – I’m a little later to the party… I feel so ignorant… I could not figure out how to find the page links ;) THEN I saw the section on Tutorials and clicked in there and used those links. Geez, who would have thought! ;) I’ve spent the last 3 hours figuring all of this out and I’m still not sure I did it all right, but I got them shared. That’s all that really matters for now. I sent you an email, but know you will be VERY busy with the NEW deal on Tuesday. So take your time! Can’t wait to see what it will be! It’s like a BIG SURPRISE every other Tuesday!

        RE: Textures
        – I’ve even been doing food textures ;) I’m getting nuttier and nuttier everyday. Every time I see something I wonder if it could be used as a texture or a background somehow ~and run for the camera!

        I should be working with the Mockups this week now that the eCards images are updated!

        THANK YOU Tom & EVERYONE at Design Cuts for all you do for ALL of us creatives!

        Some texture packages from 2 Lil Owls Studio would be beyond fantastic, if not on the store, hopefully another deal soon.

    Hello!

    This is a wonderful pack!

    Have you considered making some that are not grungy as well? A smooth clean card board, or cardboard paper stock could really highlight some great design as a background.

    Thanks so much,
    & keep up the great work,
    Hannah

      Thanks so much Hannah, that’s a fantastic suggestion, and I’ll pass it onto David (the photographer behind this pack). I’m sure we can come up with a cleaner pack to help you.

    I am continually frustrated by an inability to download the products. Despite the latest deal being split it will download up to 2/3 and then stop and/ or time out. I have limited bandwidth.
    Surely we can use dropbox?

    Hi, can you please confirm which monetary denomination the pricing goes by? Is it Australian dollars or American? I ask because I followed a link from GDB (Australian). I am based in the Euro zone btw.

    Reply

      No worries Sharon. All the pries are in US Dollars at the moment, but we’re planning to add a currency add-on, so that everyone can select the currency they prefer to use.

    i have no idea how to use this, i want to design a company logo from your templates??

    Reply
    • Tina Muller

      Hey Grant,

      The set you purchased are actually just textures, which means you can use them to make your logo design look a bit more papery, and give it a cool texture, but you’ll definitely need more than these textures to create the logo. Do you need help with using these textures, or would you like some useful links on how to design a logo?

    What about a throw back day to an old bundle alongside the new bundle? I just found you guys in November 2014 and I made the mistake of looking at the previous deals and what I had missed… I’ve bought all of them since November and would totally buy the old bundles. Let me know! Thank you.

    What would be really great is you made a back with “scenes” that you can place cutouts on. With this quality but a wall with a floor in front or just good surfaces to place cut outs of bodies from waist up.

    Also a pack like this but with more concrete, glass with drops or such would be awesome.

    Otherwise I love this pack. Thanks!

      Thanks for your comment, I can certainly help you with this.

      The great news is our 100 Grungy Paper and Card Textures pack doesn’t have a time limit and can be purchased any time you like :). Did you have a current project in mind for this pack? I would love to hear about what you’re working on :).

    Hello Design Cuts folks,
    I have just found your site thanks to Sebastian from Photoshop Artistry (and thanks to the deal you recently made for his members) and I must say I really like it here. I like this 100 grungy paper/postcards texture pack which I may be getting soon (as soon as I stop trying to resist…which won’t take long, I know that much).

    As for the ideas for future, I would also be up for a glass texture pack, that might be interesting. Or maybe a wood/trees bark texture pack?

    I started using textures in my photos quite recently. It is a great fun. I am just an amateur photographer liking older manual focus lenses and having fun combining things together from time to time. So thanks again for a new place to go to socialize and spend few bucks a month…oh dear….

        What kind of resources do you mean? Like a real life source or a pack from around the web I might spot and like?

        Extensive Textures, Patterns and Backgrounds Bundle – yes, I am going through that literary right now. I still hear your old-school cash register ringing :) Awesome stuff. I will happily send you some new stuff when I make it. Or you might spot it on my twitter feed ;) @poutniksantiago or Poutnik Santiago on Flicker. Nothing extraordinary, really. But I appreciate your interest.

    Hello… I’m a newbie and just finding my way around but hoping these textures might work well for my new business I’m launching. I’m not a graphic designer though and wanted to download the samples pack to send to my graphic designer to see if they work for me. Sometimes what I have in my head doesn’t translate :) The link appears to be broken though – I’m getting a 404 error when I click it?
