Managing a forum or developing a new social network? You’ll need graphics to use with your new system. While there’s no lack of alternatives on the market, why paying anything at all for something you’re going to use for your personal blog?
Ready-made icons are the fastest, simplest and most affordable alternative to ordering your graphics from an artist. While not all ready-made icons are created equal, the licensing policies of their suppliers can differ significantly. Sometimes you are hit with royalty payments, and sometimes stringent licensing agreements restrict your ability to use your purchase. There are, however, alternatives that cost you nothing at all.
Leaning towards bloggers and application developers, Aha-Soft offers something for nothing with its Free 3D Social Icons. Available to all webmasters, Web developers and computer users, these icons are absolutely free and come with no strings attached. No licensing restrictions, no royalties, no backlinks and no ads on your site or blog are required.
