The use of paper as a surface where web designers can draw some vague concept for design inspiration that comes unwittingly like a flash in their minds, is already an acknowledged fact. Whether it is some unique concept of a logo, or a header, or a wireframing idea, web designers often grab the nearest pen and paper to visualize his thoughts before they fade. During one of these creative wanderings perhaps came the use of paper, not as web designers used to know it, but as a texture or background of the design project. Since then, the use of paper texture became increasingly popular.

This popularity is of course not without reason. A web page with a paper background tends to be more friendly or passionate in its approach thus, endearing to its readers. This is true especially if the paper is soft or delicate in its appearance. From this perspective, web designers have learned to use a specific look of paper texture to evoke a certain emotional response from the readers. From a burnt paperback, to a wrinkled or a torn and yellowish scrap, each has its own distinct use that only web designers and artists appreciate. I say only, because only artists and web designers appreciate the beauty of a paper texture which is dirty, or yellowish, stained, burnt, you name it.

But looking for a paper that can best achieve the design concept is not an easy task. That is why, it is best to have a sizeable of collection of these artworks to save you from trouble when the need arises. Luckily, many web designers and photographers are willing to share some of their works as their contribution for the betterment of the whole design community. For our part, we are taking the initiative to bring some of these works forward by publishing 260 plus of them here. These wonderful paper textures won’t cost you a thing because they are free to download.

I know that there are many others that I failed to include here because of one reason or another, but if there is anything you know that can be of help to others, please share them by writing a comment below. After all, sharing is the main purpose of having this article. Sharing this post to your friends therefore is a great idea. Happy viewing!
