Free Hi-Res Rough Edge Old Paper Textures


Just by looking at these grunge paper textures, fun ideas keep pouring. Antique maps, lost love letters, wanted posters, parchment manuscripts… by the way the compass roses from my previous post might come in handy for that hidden treasure map ;).

So the zip file contains 5 high resolution thick old paper images (around 3500x4800px resolution). They have nice wrinkles and texture details with rough paper fiber and torn edges. Drop me a comment or share the post if you like them. Thanks!

  32. Sharon Turner says:

    I love these images…I do have one question, though. Did you make the red wax seal on the head page for this set? Those were very popular when I was young (1960s) but haven’t seen them much since. I was thinking they might be nice for SCA manuscript creations.

  33. Jonathan says:

    Nice textures… What’s the font that you used? Beginner Illustrator user here. Wanna try to do something special for my girlfriend’s birthday

  34. Sharon Turner says:

    If I could pester you just once more…could you explain to me how you made the seal? Dis you photograph one and produce in PS or did you…I don’t understand the complexities of the crisp depth of the impression nor the oozing overflow of wax out from under the metal seal – shoot, my vocabulary is failing me. You do not have a tutorial for it do you?

    • antoniu says:

      I made it directly in Photoshop. The basic idea is to draw a wavy circle, erase its center so you are left with what will be that raised edge – then play with the Bevel and Emboss (under top menu > Layer > Layer Style); and then add another circle behind the edge for the bottom part. I’m sorry I don’t have a full tutorial on this at the moment, but google “wax stamp photoshop”. I’ve seen some around. Hope that helps!:)

  35. Sharon Turner says:

    Actually, Antoniu, I think you explained it perfectly. I shall try and let you know how I made out. Thank You so much!
