Veer Introduces Redesigned Website with Uncomplicated Shopping Experience, Affordable Images and Fonts
CALGARY (July 2010) – Veer, a provider of affordable and reliable creative elements that makes it easier to be creative, today announced the launch of its redesigned website, veer.com. To celebrate, people who complete a full registration on Veer.com (see website for details) will receive 10 free Veer Credits that can, for example, buy 10 extra small images, or a font, a small image and an extra small image.
Veer now has more than 1.5 million creative photos and illustrations covering a broad range of subject categories, over 12,000 different contemporary and classic fonts and a selection of clever creative merchandise. Veer’s creative elements are priced so affordably that nearly anyone can add style to business, marketing and personal design projects ranging from websites and blog posts to business presentations and ad campaigns.
Simplified Veer.com Provides an Uncomplicated Shopping Experience
Veer.com now features a prominent search box on the homepage and a powerful search engine to make it fast and simple for people to find relevant images and fonts to meet nearly any budget.
Veer® images are available in six standard sizes ranging from extra small to extra, extra large. Image search results can quickly be sorted by price and file size, as well as other more advanced options if needed, to help people find the right image for their project at the best possible price. Once people find an image they like, they can easily buy (download a clean version), try (download a “watermarked” file to see how it looks) or save (put in an album to refer back to later).
Veer offers affordable single fonts starting at just $10. Veer has classic fonts, new releases from small foundries and independent designers, plus Veer Exclusives not available anywhere else.
Flexible Payment Options and Worry-Free Licenses
Customers can now conveniently purchase all images, fonts and merchandise either one at time with a credit card or with Veer Credits. Veer Credits are a prepaid option for shopping at Veer that provide savings of up to 56% over individual credit card purchases. Veer Credit packs come in nine different sizes, varying from 12 to 2,000 credits, with increasing savings for customers who buy bigger packs. Veer.com has examples of what can be purchased with different amounts of credits.
All images come with, at minimum, a Basic license, which provides an individual with unlimited web use up to 600 by 800 pixels as well as print reproduction rights up to 500,000 units. Customers can easily extend the license for multiple users, unlimited reproduction or product resale with a few clicks.
Veer is one of the safest places to buy images online. All Veer images are intensively reviewed by Veer’s experienced Content Editors for visual and technical quality as well as model and real property releases. Every image is protected by the Veer Customer Protection Plan, which provides customers free protection up to $10,000 in legal costs or damages if a claim is ever filed against an image.
Veer Creative Community
Veer also hosts the Veer Ideas community, a place for creative people to play, interact and share ideas with peers. Creative people can build personal profiles, share their work, connect with friends, join groups, and browse other portfolios to discover new artists. People can read the latest design news on The Skinny blog and post on the community blog, The Fat. Veer Ideas also has a wide selection of free Wallpaper downloads for personal use.
“We have built on Veer’s heritage in stock images and design to completely re-imagine how creative people of all kinds buy affordable and reliable images and fonts,” said Nairn Nerland, General Manager of Veer.com. “We created an uncomplicated shopping experience that lets people stay focused on what matters most: their creative work.”
People can make purchases on Veer.com in U.S. dollars, Canadian dollars, British pounds and Euros, and the website is available in English and German.
