Download 6 additional Growl styles

So now that you’ve installed and setup Growl, you might want to download some additional styles, if none of the included ones really catch your eye. Or, if you’ve been using the same one for ages (guilty) and want to mix it up a bit.

2020 Update: Growl is something you’ll probably only want to use if you’re running a version of macOS (OS X) earlier than 10.6. The vast majority of the features available in Growl are now built into macOS via the Notifications. This guide remains online for those of you running 10.6 or earlier and still want to use Growl.

The ‘official’ Growl styles site,, has (at this time) 40+ additional styles for you to download.
