Surfaces of rectangular shape (panels) are the most common you will need to decorate. Therefore, we have created this category for you, where you might find some appropriate rectangular design or ornament.
If this should not be the case, we hope we will at least inspire you with a certain ornament to make a similar one on your own. The collection will include designs and ornaments of various styles, motifs and degree of complexity. When choosing, pay attention to select a rectangular vector design with the appropriate height-to-width ratio, as scaling in one direction will not yield a satisfactory result i.e. the design will be deformed. All the rectangular designs that you can download here are under Creative commons attribution licenses. For those who are dealing with vector graphics, svg and eps file formats have been made available, and for those working with 2D CAD software, the designs are downloadable in dwg format.
