Folded Paper Textures

Hi-Res Folded Paper Textures

What sort of designer doesn't like a good set of quality textures?

It has been almost 3 months since a freebie was last posted on DCandies, so we’d better get the ball rolling again!

This pack of designer-candy contains 10 high resolution creased-paper textures. They come with a subtle half tone dot effect and are perfect for adding interesting paper-fold details to your work.

I created this set of textures a few months ago for my own personal use. I needed some high resolution fold textures to overlay on a series of vintage flyer designs.

The designs I were working on needed a subtle halftone print effect adding to them. I tried a various techniques, such as using the super useful halftone dot patterns across the page, but eventually settled on a more subtle usage – limiting the dots to the paper fold creases.

I scanned in a bunch of folded paper and processed the images in Photoshop. Using a variety of masks, I isolated the creased areas of the paper and added the halftone effect. In my opinion, the end result turned out great, and far more interesting than your standard set of creased paper textures.

This overlayed halftone pattern looks even sweeter when you invert the colours of the texture.

  • Hi, im loving this textures, but i can’t achieve the same overlay effect, which technique did you use?

    Thanks

    • Adam McIntyre

      @disqus_hwpaywVCXL:disqus , sorry I don’t have the PSD in front of me. You’ll just have to cycle through the blend modes. Sorry dude!

  • Antoinette Van Kleeff

    Great textures!! Thank you very much πŸ™‚

  • Thank you! ThatΒ΄s what always is needed.

  • Muntasir Mohamed

    Hey, I think these are absolutely great! Could you please explain how you got that blended effect in the pictures above? I can’t seem to find a way to do so πŸ™

    • Adam McIntyre

      Hey @disqus_KE412FVMA4:disqus , I can’t quite remember but it was simply a blend mode. Cycle through them in Photoshop and you’ll surely find the one πŸ™‚

        This is what i was wondering as well. I tried all of them all, but you can’t reproduce the reflections and light play that make it look like a real printed piece with a simple blend mode. You can see those folded reflections on the ‘DC’ letters above, almost as if you printed the letters on matte newsprint stock, folded the paper and photographed it. Hmm. If you didn’t photograph it, I wonder how you got the effect? Nice work, btw.

        • Ame

          GOT IT!
          1. Open one of the textures in Photoshop.
          2. Type some text in black.
          3. Set text to COLOR BURN.
          4. Duplicate text layer.
          5. Set duplicate text layer to 80% opacity.

          Done! Hehehe!
