10 Gnarly Grunge Backgrounds for Download

By Jessica Otte, April 9, 2014

Following up with last week’s Five Free Grunge Fonts for Friday theme, it’s freebie time again!

I scoured the internet to find ten high resolution grunge backgrounds free for download. They can be used for postcards, flyers and even large posters. I have set the resolution at 100 dpi to determine what the largest recommend size would be for print. Since they are high quality for print, they will also work perfectly for web projects.

Grunge is not just a style of music from the 80’s. In the graphic and web design world, grunge is a popular design style. Although it is not for everyone, it is a style that I really enjoy working with. Grunge has a dirty, eroded abstract look and feel to it. Fonts, backgrounds, photographs, icons, everything can be ‘grunged’ up! You can also download free grunge icons from one of my previous posts – Free Flat Social Media Icons For 2014

What can I say? I’m slightly obsessed with this design style, so I hope it is not a trend on its way out!

Below are low resolution samples of the grunge backgrounds. Click the “download” link at the bottom of the page to download the whole package! Trust me, you’ll want options.
