30 Linen Textures for Web and Print Designs
Textures remain to be an element that is widely used by designers in different graphic presentations such as website, banners, posters, brochures, magazines and even in video footages. Textures are also versatile. You can use them in many ways and in different styles. You can come up with striking art pieces if you are able to implement textures effectively along with typography, lighting, colors and other design elements. In Photoshop, you can easily add textures by putting it in one layer and then experimenting with the blend modes. Textures can also add dimension to any design.
Here, we searched the web for quality fabric linen texturesthat you can use in your designs. Linen, if you still do not know, is a textile made from the fibers of the flax plant and is valued for its exceptional coolness and freshness in hot weather. Since linens have been around for centuries, you may use these textures, especially the grungy ones, to create realistic vintage look in your artwork. For example, you can use a scanned image of an old book with linen covers to create a vintage looking background for a vintage-themed website or poster. The clean-looking linen backgrounds, on the other hand, can give a website or a book cover, for example, a modern and natural look.
Most of the textures that we include in this post have creative commons licenses which allow you to use them for free provided that you credit the source or you link back to their respective sources. Please check the terms and conditions of each texture before using them. If by mistake we included a texture here that is copyrighted, or if the license has been changed, then please let us know so we can immediately remove it from this list.
