Update April 2017: Now works with Illustrator CS5 and CS6
The Artifex Forge is proud to present this all-inclusive pack, which contains everything you need to create your own vector blueprint designs – patterns, graphic styles, brushes, textures and more!
I’ve always loved the look of blueprints, which are simply reproductions of technical drawings that document architectural or industrial designs and have been used since the 19th century. I find that the annotated elements really add to the design aesthetic, creating some interesting features which were never meant to be part of the end product but, by accident, give it a real sense of authenticity and life. With this product, now you too can bring this classic, dexterous feel quickly and easily into your designs!
Here’s everything that’s included in this comprehensive toolkit:
Transform vector text and shapes with these one-click effects. Simply select a vector and click on one of the 58 styles in the graphic styles tab. I’ve supplied them in white but instructions are included explaining how you can easily adjust the colors to suit your own design needs.
The Repeat Patterns:
20 realistic grid and blueprint patterns are included. They are the perfect base to your blueprint design – use them as a background or to fill vector shapes in your main design. Each has a transparent background so you can add a color or gradient behind. They are supplied in white but I’ve included instructions explaining how to adjust the colors.
This set of 37 Illustrator Brushes is perfect for adding that extra bit of authenticity to your designs. The range includes arrows, measurement arrows, dots and dashes and a border brush. A pressure sensitive version of the brushes is also included.
The Paper Textures:
Fold and crease overlays in .TIF format. These contribute to the pack’s realistic look. Simply place them over your design, set the transparency to multiply and adjust the opacity. The creased paper measures – 3508 x 2453 px. The folded paper measures – 6949 x 4950 px.
The Bonus Robot Illustrations:
I was having so much fun creating the screen shots for this project, that I decided to expand them into a mini illustration pack! All are vectors and can be edited as required.
A very thorough guide on how to load, apply and then edit the effects is supplied. Please read carefully all the way through as it provides all the information you might need on how to load and use these effects.
Software compatibility: Adobe Illustrator CS5 and newer.

hi, I was love this but I don’t have Illustrator or PS and was wondering if it would work in Procreate?
Zack Parks –
Thanks for getting in touch and This is a great question. Unfortunately Procreate does not currently support AI files, so you would not be able to use these resources. We can pass your request for Procreate versions of this product to the designer :).
I received an email about from Design Cuts for Photoshop packs and this item was featured. It looks like it will only work for Illustrator, but wanted to check if it would work in Photoshop CS6.
Thanks for the assistance!

Thanks so much for leaving us a comment.
I am delighted to see you are interested in this pack and I am glad to say that the designer has listed this as being compatible with Photoshop CS5 and newer -so this should absolutely work in CS6 :)
You can scroll down on a product page to view the files included and to see which softwares the designers have tested it on and listed it as compatible with.
I really like this ,I don’t have Adobe Illustrator though. Will the designer be making a version compatible with other programs such as Clip Studio,AutoDesk Sketchbook,or Medibang?

Thank you so much for reaching out to us Francisco!
We currently do not have any alternative files for the Vector BLueprint kit, however, we are always happy to pass on any suggestions or requests to the designers for you so that we can hopefully include something similar for you in future :).
Maybe this will be included in a future bundle?
Annabel Smith –
Thanks for coming back to me Francisco!
As you may know, we always include new items in our bundles, and this particular pack has actually already featured in The All-Purpose Vector Supply Kit. If the designer releases any new similar products, that would be compatible in other design software, I will certainly add in a request for you to see if we can feature this is a future deal for you :).
Will these files work with Photoshop Elements 15?
Annabel Smith –
Thanks so much for getting in contact with us Kazzaweez!
The designer has only listed this pack as compatible with Photoshop CS5 and newer. We don’t work with PSE ourselves in the office so I am unable to test this for you to see if these resources will all fully work for you, but I would be more than happy for you to purchase the kit, trial it out and see if the actions will work for you. If they don’t, I will happily refund you in full.
I have popped you over an email to go into a little further detail about software compatibility with you so I hope this helps :).
Nancy Zimler –
Does this work in CS4? I otherwise only have CC version of Illustrator.
Thanks so much for your comment!
The great news is, this pack will work in Adobe Illustrator CS5 and newer, so whilst this won’t work in your CS4, you shouldn’t have any problems in CC :)
