Paying attention to all the subtle flaws and marks that are left from under-inked printing or simply the passage of time, the Artifex Forge has carefully captured these subtle textures from genuine vintage printed ink to give you the perfect finishing touch for any retro design.

The brushes are ideal for adding texture to more than just emulated print - try for yourself to see the superb texture depth that comes from layering these brushes! Even better, you don't need to apply brushes in a complicated and time-consuming way to achieve the effects demonstrated in the preview.

First, use the large, sparse print noise brushes to cover big areas easily and efficiently. Secondly, apply the light print noise brushes on areas where you want stronger texture. Finally, use the halftone, clustered print noise and random print texture brushes to finish your design with those all-important extra details. It's as easy as 1, 2, 3...

Here's a breakdown of everything that's included:

9 Sparse Print Noise Brushes

These are ideal for adding light texture to large areas quickly.

8 Clustered Print Noise Brushes

Great for adding small areas of texture - as used on the print blocks in the first page of the preview.

6 Light Print Noise Brushes

Great, all-pupose texture. For large and small areas.

9 Light Halftone Brushes

Big patches of screen-tone texture.These look particularly good in corners.

10 Random Mark and Scuff Brushes

A selection of less regular texture brushes - use these to add extra details to your designs. The parallel lines can make the edges of your document look as if it is subtly warping due to excess ink.

A quick reference guide

This will help you find the right brushes for the task in hand quickly.
