LETTERING + GRAPHIC
DESIGN LEARNING

Happy Thursday! Today I have an awesome gift to share with you! My friends at Vecteezy put together an incredible set of 8 seamless ink texture patterns just for Every-Tuesday readers! I got so excited after I received them that I started playing around with them right away (see below). This free set comes not only as ai files, but eps files, psd files, a photoshop pat file *and* png files. Instructions on how to use them + ideas for use are all below!

Pin it for later!

 

8 seamless ink texture patterns

 

I’ve also put this set in the Resource Library if you’re an Every-Tuesday subscriber and would like to pick it up later. Please note that because this set is packed to the brim with file options, the size of the download is on the larger side. To ensure a full, successful download, you’ll need a reliable internet connection, and don’t open the zip file until the download has fully finished. Since this *is* a zip file, you’ll need to be on a desktop or laptop computer, and you’ll need Photoshop or Illustrator to best utilize the files.

Freebie: 8 Seamless Ink Texture Patterns

How to use the files:

ai files: open the ai file (in Illustrator CS3 or newer).
