Update: WDL Premium After One Month

By / Aug 11, 2009 / Updates

Almost one month ago, we launched a premium membership option to our readers, and the response has been overwhelming. With hundreds of members already signed up and 6 premium files posted, we are calling it a success.

Our premium members have really been enjoying what we’ve offered, but when you charge for something on a website, there’s always a few that ask why. So here’s a quick answer. Web Design Ledger is a way to provide useful information and resources to web designers, but it’s also a business, which means it has to make money. We think offering premium content is a great solution. It provides us with a revenue stream to keep the site going, and provides the premium member with high quality design files that have a limited circulation, which means your designs will be more unique. Each file we post is worth more than the monthly fee, and as time goes on the number of files we offer each month will be more and more. At only $7 per month, it’s almost a no-brainer.

Here’s an overview of the premium files we’ve posted this month:

Go Media Ornate and Decorative Vector Packs (Value: $20)

Go Media is a well known design studio with a lot of passion for what they do. This passion definitely comes through in their Arsenal, which is a collection of high quality, hand crafted design elements that they’ve made available through an online store. They’ve partnered with us to give our premium members some of their best design elements. In this premium post, you will be able to download 2 of their awesome vector packs.
