Turquoise Flag-Tip

Another hit on the list!

Hey folks, there’s been another hit on the list. I’m happy to announce the release of the upgraded version of our distressed poster mockup templates.

The goods

There are still 15 templates in the pack. They are all:

  • Cleanly layered,
  • At least 1200×1000 pixels,
  • Smart object enabled,
  • With a customizable level of “grunginess”
  • Either in a poster aspect ratio (4:3, 10 of them) or in  a CD/LP aspect ratio (square, 5 of them)

What do they do?

People who know my design work might know how much of a textured, grunged out, and worn look lover I am. And people that do that know how long it can take to build up that textured feel. How many hours spent in Ps moving layers around, tweaking blending modes, etc?

Hate or like it, sometimes you don’t have enough time to do that. This is where these templates come in. One of the usage scenarios for these is when you’re wrapping up some art in Ai, and you need to quickly simulate the textured look the final product is going to have.

Below is an example of what the templates can do on the poster resulting from Steve tutorial’s based on our vector set 22:

The good news

We’re having a promo code to celebrate the update of the templates! Just use distressedsmartobjectposters at check out to get $9.99 off the purchase of the pack.

On that note, keep your eyes peeled for an Arsenal release of a new contributor, and for the long announced Arsenal survey. Both should drop next week.
