250+ Free Cardboard Textures and Backgrounds

Cardboards, especially the  “brownish” types, are very useful for creating backgrounds for websites, posters, brochures, and other print materials. When used as overlay in Photoshop, cardboard textures can add a new dimension and make you designs look more natural and raw. There a lot of websites out there that incorporate cardboard textures. And, take note, the themes of these websites range from vintage to modern designs.

In this post, we put together over 250 high-resolution and high-quality cardboard textures. These textures range from flat brownish cardboards to corrugated and ribbed types to grungy and vintage. For easy browsing, we grouped the textures into different categories. The last group are texture packs, with each set containing around 10-20 textures.
