Freebies: Grunge Essentials Pack

It’s that time again!

PSDFAN is giving away it’s second freebie for all the loyal visitors here. This time I have designed a great grunge essentials pack for you guys to use in your designs. The idea is that the same images seem to crop up in grungy designs, but often it can be hard to find good quality images to use. All of the following images have been hand drawn by myself to help save you some time, and all are free to download. Best of all, each image is on it’s own layer in the .psd, so you can literally copy and paste it onto whatever background you need.

I would love to see how anyone uses these freebies, and as always I’d really appreciate any social bookmarking efforts!

What’s in the grunge essentials pack?

The following images are available for free download in the grunge essentials pack:

Post it Note

Paper Clip

Sticky Tape

Coffee Stain


Here are the elements combined

Just to show how easy it is to put this grunge pack into use, the following image took me less than 60 seconds to make, I just pasted the images together and applied a couple of drop shadows:
