Creative Market : Free Goods of the Week / Spoon Graphics / Font Fabric / Lost and Taken / Dribble / Pixeden /  Lost Type Co-Op / Freebiesbug / Codrops Tutorials 

Because everyone loves free things, here’s another quick resources post. There are another handful of sites out there but these are the ones I check out most often.

My favourite is the weekly offers from Creative Market. Sometimes you come across goodies you wouldn’t have otherwise downloaded. But act quick because they change/rotate every 7 days! A few people asked about subtle seamless backgrounds, and Pixeden has some of my favourites. Freebiesbug is actually more of a collective site (to make browsing easier) but has the occasional exclusives. And I’m sure every theme maker has already heard of Codrops but they deserve a huge mention.

I have decided what I’m going to do for my next tutorial: How to use custom fonts with the @font-face rule and have it work in Firefox.

I see so many people doing this (incorrectly) so it only ends up working in Chrome. And they don’t even specify a fallback font for the other browsers.

I get quite a few questions about where I find my stock images that are used in live previews so here’s a list of my favourite (all can be found on the resources page). Most of these are free to use on personal and commercial projects but double check the licenses before use.
