    Thank you for the wonderful freebies you provide. It was a great introduction to your website and your work, both of which are favourites of mine now.

    These are really nice! I think I can use them now! Thank you!

    I miss being a member and getting the cool premium content you all have! Maybe soon! LOL

    Thank you,

    Thank you for the stained vintage paper textures Steven! I always love your freebies. There’s only one problem with the freebie and that’s the first sentence of the first page, but it’s nothing a little Photoshop magic can’t handle. lol

      Yeah, sorry about that. I didn’t even read the text until after everything was created. I actually noticed that when I was creating the preview image.

    These are really cool textures for graphic design work. I like the retro feel of them.
