First off, thank you for being a customer at Iconfinder and help support the icon designers as well as us.

Iconfinder Pro was launched in 2014. Since then we have made numerous improvements to continue to add value for subscribers. Most importantly, we have added an average of 60,000 new Premium icons per month with continually increasing quality from the world’s most talented icon designers.

We believe Vectr offers users one such opportunity. Continue reading
