Where do you get your textures for backgrounds? A lot of web designers use the ones from Squidfingers or make their own. Print designers for years have had another solution though and it’s one I recently just discovered when I complimented a designer on a piece he had just printed for a jewelry store. He uses fabric patterns he finds at fabric stores.
It’s brilliant, really. I mean, you just scan it in and clean it up. For the web you would need to rework it considerably to ensure it tiles in a nice way however it’s a great idea when you absolutely need something original. I’m sure it breaks several usage restrictions however that’s for the lawyers.
