Today, I’m sharing with you a long list of paper texture resources. Most of them are free while some are paid. However, they are all of amazing quality. Some of the resources are links to direct paper texture bundles. But, some are links to large repositories filled with thousands of individual paper textures you can sort through.
If you’re working on some graphic design that needs a paper texture I’m sure you will find what you’re looking for in this list.
