Get all 3 volumes of Paper Boy in one complete bundle and save!

Made for the professional creative — these comic book paper textures let you illustrate in Procreate and, like magic, your work will take on the look of vintage comic book printing!

These aren't just JPG's you overlay on your work — they're carefully crafted templates with nuanced texture and aging.

And the best part? The template does almost all the work! Seriously, if you can adjust a few sliders in Photoshop, you can get these effects. 

Which brings me to another great thing about this pack. You can control the intensity of the paper, the ink, and the textures with ease. So you can make the effect as intense or subtle as you wish. 

Plus, your art is separated from the effects so you can easily try your art out on any of the eight paper textures or turn the textures off completely!

What You Get

This comic book effect is one of the simplest packs we've ever produced. Just download the paper textures, browse the simple instructions (less than 100 words), and you're off!

  • Instant Downloads. As soon as you complete your purchase your product is added to your RetroSupply Account area and we email you a link to download the three volumes immediately.

  • 24 high-resolution comic paper textures. Designed to make your final art look like the original source material.

  • Simple instructions. PDF instructions with just four-steps simply diagramed so you'll understand how to use the effect like a pro almost instantly.

    Fantastic product!

    For some time I’ve wanted to give my illustrations and comic art a retro look, so when I stumbled across this product I thought I’d give it a try. I’m SO glad I did! Super-easy to use and the customer service is excellent! I’m including an image of my first piece using Paper Boy for Procreate so you can see the effect one of the range of templates offered.

    I will definitely treat myself to more from this range and would highly recommend you do the same!

    Always wished

    I'm a fan of vintage magazines, and these tools give me everything I've ever wanted. No more hassle of finding free textures on the internet, you just have to invest in this and frankly, it's a bargain, because despite the number of papers available, it may not be enough, but you can multiply them by combining and using your imagination. Thanks RSCO

    Adds great texture

    I used one of the comic textures and combined with the color lab tones it became a match made in heaven! Love these textures and brushes!

    A valuable asset to my ever-expanding arsenal of vintage Retro Supply products.

    Paperboy is the go too paper for any retro/vintage project work – I currently flit between all three and the choice of adjustments on paper texture and intensity is nice on various project work. I’ve been a big supporter of Retro Supply products over the years and I don’t see that diminishing any time soon! - Products such as ColourLab and Phantom Paper equally have lots to offer for someone like myself who has a passion for anything slightly “retro”, by design. I am extremely grateful that there are individuals out there who create assets that make my own creative process so much easier – thank you and long may you live.
