50 of the Best Seamless Pattern Sets – Updated

There are no individual patterns in this post, only complete sets, with each set containing anything from 3 patterns all the way up to 100, and are available in a variety of popular formats: .eps, .ai, .png, .pat, .psd and .jpg.
You will find all kinds of varied patterns, such as fabrics, geometric shapes, flowery, retro, vintage, grunge, swirls, paper, dots, lines… and much more. And if all that is not enough we have also collected a selection of the best resources for you to dicover even more seamless backgrounds.

Throughout this Christmas week we are taking a look at the most popular and some of the most resourceful articles that we have published in the past year.
I promise that by next week normal service will resume with even higher quality articles, with even more resourceful posts and, of course, some highly inspirational posts. I can hardly wait!
As for now, why not enjoy some of our classics. Hope you have all had a great Christmas!
