    I would probably use the metal and rust textures the most. They tend to really spice up my designs when I use them on typography or other graphics.

  • Morgan

    mmmm… concrete and stone!

  • Rajesh Pancholi

    Which one you ask… I “wood” if I could : )

  • Devlin

    Great contest, I like the clouds texture pack. Getting decent pictures of clouds is pretty difficult.

  • Linda

    I just ran across your site a few days ago because of Twitter! Glad I found your site.. it’s great!

  • Tadd Mencer

    Clouds – hands down – are the ones I would use the most. I try and have as many cloud textures as possible. They’re so versatile you can do just about anything with them. Space nebula, explosions, grungy back grounds … with the right tweaking they’re perfect for anything.

    I’m working on a large graphic project and man .. these packs would DEFINITELY come in handy.

    Here’s some fingers crossed!!

  • Franz Jeitz

    I’ll certainly be using the Metal&Rust Texture Pack the most. I just love some good grunge textures to spice up my work.

  • gfxchick

    It was really difficult to choose but I think I would use “Wood” the most. thanks!

  • BryanZ

    I would love to have . . .

    METAL . . METAL and RUST (to the tune of Diamonds & Rust for those of us old enough to know the song).

    Bryan Z

  • Andrew

    definitly wood. I’m always on the lookout for a fresh set of grains, yo.

  • Joseph Sites

    I’d probably use the Metal/Rust texture pack the most, but I’m not seeing actual samples of the texture images on the site… so we’ll have to wait and see.

  • Ryan Brunsvold

    Great contest, thanks. I believe I would probably use the “Concrete and Stone” pack the most.

  • Albie


  • Michelle Hayes

    I definitely think the metal and rust textures will be used the most! It was a hard decision!

  • brisbane printers

    Hi and thanks very much for the contest.

    It’s a bit of a hard choice, but I think I would get the most use out of the ‘Metal & Rust’ texture range.

    Thanks again :)

  • Peggy

    I would probably use the metal and rust the most then probably the next most used would have to be the wood.

  • Steve

    I would use the metal and rust pack the most. I am working on a new layout called heavy metal so this would be perfect.

  • Cosmo Kramer

    I would use the wood textures a lot, you can never have to much wood. But the rest of them look great to.

  • Eduardo Lares

    Shoot I will use them all or any. I love creating abstract images for my custmers on their business cards and media so i would be extremly grat full for any of the packs. Thanks!

  • Brent

    While I think the metal and rust would be extremely interesting I would probably end up using concerete and stone or wood the most due to the fact that most of the design I’m currently working on has a very earthy feel to it.

  • Cthulhu Saves

    These textures look great. The metal and rust offerings would be what I’d use most.

  • Trent

    Definitely the wood textures…

  • NaldzGraphics

    il go for metal!!:)

  • Misa

    They’re all great, but I think I’d use the wood the most.

  • Allen Bivins

    I like the WOOD pack

  • Steve Scott

    Concrete and Stone

  • Vicky Boackle


  • Sandy

    clouds or wood

  • David

    I had an extremely hard time choosing between these textures. I could probably use each of them in different and interesting ways. Yet if I were to choose only one would want the wood texture pack.

  • Redbyte

    Definitely ‘Metal & Rust’ for me.

    BTW this is a really cool competition :)

  • Anonymous

    concrete and stone definitely!

  • Christian Castañeda

    concrete and stone definitely!

  • Jed


  • Ant

    I do a lot of underground design so definitely the Metal and Rust would go down well

  • Grzegorz Biziel

    Probably concrete and stone would be the most used, but I think all of them are great!

  • fREn

    I would use the pavement textures, and also metal and rust ;D.

  • Ed

    I think the bricks are for me. Need to close that “whole in the wall”. :=)

  • Kathy Scott

    Concrete and stone.

  • Jussi

    I dig bricks, so propably those.

  • Sean Bahr

    Hi! I would probably use the wood textures the most because a lot of my clients are resorters who like the woodsy/rustic look. Thanks!

  • Katie

    I think I would use the Concrete & Stone textures most often, they would be such excellent resources for grunging up a background or any other type of graphic. I’ve got a real soft spot in my heart for grunge. ^_^


  • maxwell ariss

    I think I would definitely use the metal/rust pack the most, only because Im a sucker for grunge designs.

    Dont get me wrong though, I would make use of all the texture packs ;)

  • Matthew

    I think I’d use rust the most because I don’t have many rust textures currently.

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  • Pamela

    I would probably use Metal and Rust the most, but they are all great. I’ve never met a texture I didn’t love.

  • Sarah Balderas

    I definitely love textures, so I can foresee using the metal and rust textures the most.

  • Jonathan

    I’ll use the Metal and Rust textures the most, probably because I’m sort of addicted to them.

  • Josh Bader

    I LOVE WOOD!!!

  • greg anderson

    i would use the wood templates mostly.

  • Anonymous

    since I am a sucker for wood-textures in all its variaties, Id go with the wood pack.

  • Calle Höjer

    Since I am a sucker for wood textures in all its variaties, Id go with the wood-pack

  • saul

    I like textures cuz they make 2d more tasty and deep and i woul use the metal rust textures to grunge my design

    I think clouds would definitely get the most usage. So many different uses for them. Granted that goes for most textures, but clouds especially!

  • Paula

    i want to use them all

  • Jami

    awesome contest….i would probably use concrete or wood the most….looking forward to hearing who wins!

  • Monique Rizzo

  • John Mindiola III

    Metal and rust for sure. I live in a big metro area!

  • jmaturo

    good “wood”

  • Marc Hughes

    The metal and rust for sure.The concrete ones could be a lot of fun too though.

  • Daniel

    I think the Metal & Rust one would definitely be the most used and most practical of all of them.

  • Carah Kristel

    I would use the metal and rust one the most. Grunge is so popular right now.

  • Mike

    Textures are the basis of 99 % of my work and i would love to have a free pack from colorburned. thanks guys!!

  • Mark

    Concrete and Stone for me, hard to find really good quality textures like these.

  • Andrew

    Heck, I’m sure I’d use them all…

    But probably wood.


  • Ariel Jakobovits

    I would use the wood textures.

  • David

    I’d you rust the most as it’ll go with the rust that I can see on my old PC!!

  • Frank Pellon

    Would definitely use the pavement pack ALOT, working on multiple layouts that involve carsd and construction and the pavement would help me out big time

  • Els Dens

    Great textures!
    I like the stone texture pack the most.

  • Kenneth Ballenegger

    Either Concrete, or Metal & Rust.

  • marcushiro

    anything that is organic. wood textures would be nice. cheers!

  • firebubble – Logo Design UK

    I really like the wood, clouds and pavement packs but I think if I had to pick one I would have to go with the wood texture pack as I can think of lots of ways I could incorporate these textures within graphic design projects. Thank you for the post, love these freebies!

  • Alex

    I would probably use the concrete and stone textures the most. I love incorporating grunge textures into my designs and they really give the design something extra. It would be a huge aid in my designs as a college student as it is often difficult to find good textures online, and time constraints make it difficult to find my own textures in the real world.

  • Sean

    Wow these look great, would love to win these! thanks!

  • Amy Stewart

    Excellent textures. I think I would most likely use Wood the most.

  • Santaigo Madrid

    Hi and thanks very much for the contest.

    Difficult all textures are amazing, but I think I would get the most use out of the ‘Metal & Rust’ texture range.Secondly clouds

    Thanks again

  • Nikki


  • Juan Pedro Gonzalez

    I would have to say ´Wood´, for sure.

  • Jason Esquenazi

    I believe this is a trick question, if I won received 300 free textures, there is no way you will hold me down to just one. I’d use them all!!!! muahhhhahahhhhhahahahahaaaa (evil laugh)

  • Cameron

    Definately the clouds pack. I am constantly vectoring clouds.

  • Anonymous

    metal & rust would fit the work i have been doing latley!

  • Cyndi Masters

    I follow you on Twitter and I think I would use the wood textures the most!

  • Timothy Sternberg

    I would probably use the metal and rust textures the most.

  • Maxim Barkhatov


  • http://none RICKs

    Metal and Rust i love the look of my wallpapers with a unsaturated texture and a overlay.

  • alex

    I like wood!

  • Elizabeth Williams

    I’d probably end up using Metal & Rust the most! These textures are awesome. Makes me miss Mayang ):

  • Tonya Froemel

    Metal & Rust i think is the one id use the most

  • yannik

    clouds definetly

  • Leah

    First off, I would totally use them ALL! But, forced to chose one, I would go with metal and rust.

  • zohar avgar

    I would use the pavement textures

  • SE7EN

    I’ll choose “Wood”

  • Jana Knepper

    I believe that I would be able to use the “Pavement” texture pack in all of my designs regardless of the style of assignment. It has a good variety of tones(contrasts), depths, line work and over all textures.

    Thank you for the opportunity and good luck to everyone! =D

  • kindle

    concrete and stone, most definitely.


    wind and water

  • susan varney

    i would love the metal and rust

  • Deborah Stinson

    Concrete and Stone. Or Metal and Rust! Can’t say as I would probably use them all!

  • Walie

    I work do mostly architectural work, so i would use the metal textures

  • Matthew Haltom

    I would definitely use them all because they are a great resource, but I would probably use the clouds and/or wood textures in many of my designs.

  • Dermot Holmes

    Metal & Rust, nothing like a bit O grime!

  • Allan Levitt

    Chances are I’d go for Metal & Rust. Though the Concrete & Stone one is very, very good too.

    Nice packs all-round.

  • david basile

    Metal & Rust

  • Alassea

    I’d pick the Metal&Rust Texture Pack :)

  • Kelly

    wow, all fantastic! I would say the Metal and Rust textures would come in the most, but I could certainly use the whole family!!!

  • DeeAnn S

    I think I would get more use out of the metal and rust set.

  • Laura

    I would use metal&rust the most…but they’re all great!

  • jffryclough

    i’m all about wood, so wood is good, understood? you should…

  • Doug

    Roses are red, but violets are blue. If I had cloud textures, fun designs would I do!

  • djp

    love something new

    For me the wood textures would be great.

  • Rudella Custer

    Absolutely metal and rust! Awesome textures in all 6 though.

  • Kristine Chan

    Wood would be great for websites!

  • Anthony Hedden

    metal and rust

  • Joanna Smith

    It’s between Concrete & Stone and Metal and Rust. I do a lot of digital artwork and I can see myself using either one of these on a regular basis. It really depends on what type of project I am working on and what I want to express at that time. These are awesome tools!

  • Adrian Lamont

    I would use the brick textures the most.

  • Marcia S

    I love the color and organic vs machined textures of metal and rust. What a cool giveaway!

  • Melissa Hong

    It’s a toss up for me between “metal and rust” and “concrete and stone”! Ultimately, I’d have to pick the stone though. Looks great.

  • walter

    I would probably use the metal the most. ty!

  • Jonathan Cutrell

    I’d have to say in order: metal and rust, concrete and stone, pavement, wood, clouds, then brick. But I would use every single one eventually.

  • Kyle

    The stone textures are amazing! Thanks for the opportunity :)

  • kathy pease

    id use the concrete and stone the most :)

  • Tammy

    I love the pavement one, I’d use that quite a bit I think!

  • jjean

    Clouds, I use them all the time

  • Gianna

    I love the clouds texture pack :)

  • melissa

    i like concrete and stone quite a bit!

  • Donna K

    I would like the clouds

  • Carole

    I’m just partial to clouds so that would be my first choice.

  • Heather C

    Not sure if my post went through, so trying again. I choose clouds.

  • haize.rava

    Rust and Metal

  • Sharon
