When looking at an old paper, one cannot help but associate its appearance to a past event.
It is a sort of a tool that effectively reminds us of a distant memory of our past – lost love, happy events, sad memories, or perhaps a historical event that helped shaped our lives. That is why, web designers make good use of a old paper texture to evoke the feeling of nostalgia and authentic look on their web pages. Finding a good old paper texture or background may require a lot of effort.
As designer you can either grab your camera and shoot a photograph of an old paper, or you can use photographs created by others. Luckily, there are some really good free resources with old papers textures available where kind hearted photographers and designers have shared their textures. Through their efforts, we can now view and compare these old paper textures as much as we like on the web, and take a pick based on our personal preferences and needs for our design. To further simplify your life I’m rounding up 90+ of some of the most beautiful old paper textures that I believe can be very useful for any designer. Old paper textured look really awesome with retro fonts and western fonts.
Here, you can download old papers which are nicely wrinkled, torn-edged, rough, smooth, stained, and many more. If you find this article useful, please don’t hesitate to drop us a comment and share this to your friends. Also let us know if we missed some great resources!
