|low-cost ecommerce stock icons|
| 8:00 am on Jul 25, 2006 (gmt 0)|
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.

iStockphoto has some good ones, and you can get a set for about $5-10

Is it possible to convert webding/wingding characters into images to use?

Yes use MS word or MS Wordpad and the character map utility. from the Character map select the webding/wingding and copy. go to wordpad and paste the webding/wingding on the page and resize and colour as you wish. The when satisfied press Alt+print screen and go to you favorite paint / image processing program, select paste as a new image or paste into an existing image. Some characters are available directly in html by using © for the copyright symbol - sorry I cannot remember the complete list.

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.
