Paper Artifacts | Texture & Ephemera

We Travelled Across America to Find the Best Paper Textures

A collection of 43 historical paper textures and ephemera collected from trips to everywhere from Seattle, Washington to Mobile, Alabama.

All textures are high-resolution and were scanned in at 800 DPI TIFFs and saved as high-quality JPGs. Making them large enough for just about any project but not so big they're annoying to work with.

I find myself going back to these textures every day. That's how much I love them, haha!

Here are the paper textures you'll get:

  • Old World War II report paper
  • Retro map of Los Angeles
  • Rare full-color vintage medical images
  • US government propaganda manual
  • Summer camp manual
  • Bus tickets
  • Graph paper
  • Old packing material
  • Cardboard
  • Classic postal service envolopes
  • Financial register
  • Record club envelope
  • Vinyl record sleeves
  • String tie envelopes
  • Doctor's assessment sheet
  • Screw packaging
  • Bingo card
  • Old business card and much more!

We've processed the textures so they're on a white or isolated background. This makes them easy to place on other backgrounds (like the wood on the preview images).

We've had this pack in our private stash for a while. I find myself constantly using them for all sorts of tasks.

Here are some recent ways I've used these textures and ephemera:

  • Setting the Blending Mode to Multiple and using it to add a fast texture.
  • Placing one of a wood background and using it to mockup a logo.
  • As the starting point for making new brushes.
  • Creating seamless patterns for a website.
