Textures are the patterns or the surfaces of anything that are created with a consistency in order to behave as simple backgrounds or wallpapers at different places and different walls. Though as time has passed, these paper textures (Pretty Paper Textures) are not only confined to walls but have also developed over the internet. These refer to those being developed in the graphics and designing sectors by designers through certain mechanisms. The mechanisms may include 3D evolutions as well according to the latest trends.

Since paper is the most widely used form hence paper patterns have developed in numerous numbers which are referred to as the paper textures. These paper textures include those cripples, crumbled, old-school, mainstream, vintage, old styled, old framed, ancient marked, shadowed, striked-out, lined patterns and aged paper textures.

How to Create Your Own Customized Paper Texture Templates

You can use many different products in order to produce your own paper texture template which includes Photoshop, Corel, and Illustrator etc.

We can also teach you to prepare one in just thirty minutes using Photoshop in the following way:

  • Firstly, you need to create a 1200×1500 pixel document. Secondly, you fill the background with the ‘cda040’ color from the paint bucket. Now, you make a new layer by clicking on to layer and new layer, over this base. The base color should be zero while fffff should be your background(awesome Backgrounds) color.
  • The next step includes selecting Clouds through Filer, Render and later blending its overlay by bringing it to become 35 percent opaque.
  • Following this step, you create a new layer by the same way previously used and go to clouds through filer and render options. After this, go to Artistics through Filter tab to select a dry brush and do a setting.
  • This includes changing the opacity level to blend only by 10 percent and then use the grunge brushes available as ‘c78709’, ‘b58323’ and ‘d3bc7a’ colors each over a new layer.
  • Next, use the other type of brush, the crack brush with the ‘cdc3b2’ color to give an added effect.
  • You now create a new layer by filling it with the fffff color and add a noise. Do this by clicking Filter, Noise and add noise.
  • The blending mode is ‘multiplied’ to have opacity lesser to 10 percent than before.
  • After collecting all the layers, now you copy or duplicate this group through hiding the original layers but merging them later on in the copied group.

Name this merged layer as paper texture or whatever you like and double click it to give it an ‘inner glow’ setting by selecting it. This will give you a burned effect and you can use the eraser to erase patterns from wherever you wish. These also get duplicated on your layer simultaneously.


  • In order to give the texture more appealing look, try incorporating layers with different styles to it.
  • Do not forget to add a layer as soon as you’re done with one thing and have changed its opacity.
  • Hide the layers after collected so as to edit them when later needed.
  • You can merge all layers through the shortcut ‘shift+control+e’.
  • On order to have lighter color, duplicate the layer, click control+u and put hue at +6, saturation at +10 and lightness at +15.

Do’s & Don’ts

  • Be perfectly sure that you are creating the layers correctly and saving them, else all will fail.
  • Make sure that the burn layer has been changed all the way or the desired effect won’t show.
