Free, high res paper and canvas textures

If you're a designer in need of digital textures, check out the free canvas textures at Fuzzimo and some paper textures from Dioma. CG Textures also offers plain, decorative and wallpaper backgrounds in their "Paper" section. (Setting up a free account is needed to download high resolution versions there, but it's well worth it).

To get Deming, the font I used in the graphic above, click here.

I use background textures on brochures, websites, headers, and more. If you have portfolio pieces or stationery designs you want to show off, consider layering the digital image on top of a fabric or paper background in Photoshop. Add a drop shadow, and you've got a lovely, fake "photo" of your piece. For inspiration, see how Minted.com presents their stationery products.
