I've been looking at stock icons for our website - standard eCom stuff like a telephone, mouse, email, padlock etc.
Plenty of sites selling these (and great quality to). Generally these come in huge themed packs for over $100 - which I would happily pay except for the fact that I haven't found a single pack that covers our needs. Paying for 2 packs including 100's of icons to get 10 icons I would use would be overkill.
I've found one site that allows you to buy single icons (min. 10) and will also create custom icons for $15, but half the site doesn't work so I've no confidence in them.
Would be interested to hear other peoples experiences, and any recommendations welcome by sticky mail.
Thanks, numnuts. That's basically what I had in mind. Since it hadn't been mentioned, I was afraid maybe I was doing something that didn't work as well as I thought it did (didn't show up correctly in certain browsers or something). AFAIK, all the common little "webby" icons can be found there. As an "old codger," I still use ASCII code for the copyright symbol, etc., but one advantage of using the web/wingdings for images is that, at least in my experience, they resize really well.
