Polka dot patterns have a lot of uses in design, both web and print. In fact, these patterns are usually used for stationary, children’s design, package design or fashion design, among other things. Patterns can even be used as overlay on top of your artwork in Photoshop to add some texture. For websites, patterns are usually used as background such as for social network sites like Twitter. Polka dots are also popular as background for scrapbooks and even for cloth and textiles.
The first five sets below are Illustrator swatches while the rest are pixel patterns in the following formats: JPEG, PNG or PAT. All are seamless or tile-able, which means you can use it in any canvass size without worrying about resolution since the design repeats seamlessly.
