I have lost the link to a website owned by a man who offers free web backgrounds. He has tons of really cool ones and particularly a lot with a retro feel. I think his name is part of the url but I could be wrong. Do you know which one I'm talking about?

Any any other good sites for backgrounds would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I'm not sure which one you're looking for, but here are some I've looked at in the past:

Thank you. I'll check those out but they aren't the one I'm searching for. I know it's one that has been recommended by web designers. I wish I could remember at least part of the web address. ugh..

Wow, I thought the website that I posted had nice backgrounds! I can't wait to make a new *personal* website *with a link back to the designer's page* to incorporate some of those! Thanks Jen!

Be sure to read the terms of use at any site. Groovy Lizard specifically states, " Free for use on your personal web pages or blogs only, in return for a link-back to Groovy Lizard."

Similar terms on the Boogie jack site.

Oh I know that! I was just wondering if that's who freespiritmom meant. Of course we should all read and abide by the terms of use at a site before using the images provided. I thought that was a given, thus why I didn't C&P the terms of use for the sites I linked. The artists already clearly state them on their respective sites. Are we supposed to put disclaimers with links we post? Sorry if so.

We should not be posting links to sites for background that prohibit use on commercial sites in a thread that is clearly asking for links for backgrounds to use on a commercial site.

Like I said, in my case, I was posting the link as a reference to help trigger her memory and see if maybe that was who she was thinking of. Also, GroovyLizard does offer images that can be used on a commercial site if they are paid for. (and actually, looking at her site right now, in her 'underware' section of backgrounds she asks only for a link back with no mention of 'personal sites only' like in her other graphic areas) So if anyone reading this thread chose to pay GroovyLizard for her work, they could use them. It's always up to the individual to read the terms of use and the prices and decide.
