Sticky Tape: Free Hi-Res Photoshop Brushes + Textures

Photoshop Brushes are an easy way to spice up your designs. Grab them, place them and you’re done. Ever since CS1 Photoshop allows you to use brushes up to 2500px large. This makes them perfect for webdesign as well as projects for print. This latest high resolution brush set includes 15 sticky tape brushes. They’re all between 2261px and 2500px large. For those of you stuck on older Photoshop versions I included the source files used to make the brushes as a texture pack. All textures are 2500px large and come in png format. This way no one has to miss out on this freebie release.

Photoshop Brush Set:



Download Brushes:

contains 1 .abr file in .zip archive – 15 Brushes, 19.4 Mb



Download Textures:

As always you may use the brushes and textures in personal and commercial projects without the need of attribution. You may not distribute, sell or claim ownership of them. If you want to share these resources with others I kindly ask you to link back to this article. Enjoy!

  1. Those are pretty unique and looks really good. With more and more “grunge” websites popping up, these could come in handy.

    Well done & keep up the good work!

  3. @Marco:
    Glad you like them

    I followed this tutorial published some time ago by BittBox:
    The key is to play with the different adjustments until you have a nice black/white image of the brush. I also recommend testing the saved brushes with a different colour than black to proof them.

  4. Nice set of brushes! These sticky bits come in handy for a lot of projects :P

  15. Very nice stickies.. really come in handy. thanks for sharing..
    what hand-drawn font have you used on the titles. or is it some brush/ texture applied to a regular font?

  16. I think that it is in normal type, just add a little brush

  17. The font is called “FFF Tusj” and is available for free here:

  18. thank you so much! love your work and love your generosity! you are awesome!

  19. Sticky tape? wow… interesting.

  20. cool tape brushes – thanks for sharing!

  21. These are great, and super-useful. Many thanks.

  22. I must be an idiot, but I have the 15 .png files, but no .abr file. How do I get these brushes into PS ??

  23. @ilium007: Have you made sure to download both files? The download button for the .abr file is located just on top of the textures preview.

  24. OK – Yes I AM an idiot….Thanks.

  25. Is there anything I should be doing in particular to get the tape to look, well, ‘tapy’ ???

    I kind of end up with a non realistic yellowy tape, I am after something a bit galssy. I don’t know quite how to explain !

    I am using be creating a new layer, getting the brush and clicking once on my photo…Is this the way to use it ?

  26. @ilium007: The best practice when it comes to brushes like these is infact to create a new layer and apply the brush on it like a stamp. Play with the fill color of the brush and blending mode of the layer. Try to copy the layer and overlay it on top to get different results.

  27. I have just had a play around, I guess I want the tape to not be transparent…

  28. Thanks so much! These are great! I’ll be using them very soon.
