Ever since Access All Areas memberships were launched on Spoon Graphics back in 2009 I have wanted to be able to provide an alternative payment method to PayPal. It has been a popular request over the past decade, but despite several attempts, I never managed to figure out how to do it… Until now! I am proud to announce that Stripe has been successfully integrated, which allows you to securely enter your card details to unlock 100s of premium design resources, historic tutorials, and source files on Spoon Graphics.
I’ve partnered with the industry’s most talented designers to secure over $5,000 worth of premium design resources for Access All Areas members to download. By becoming an Access All Areas member, you gain access to over 300 items, including fonts, vectors, brushes, textures, and more. Access All Areas members also unlock years worth of tutorial content on Spoon Graphics too, covering a variety of tips, tricks, and techniques for Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator.
With the help of Stripe, one of the largest payment processing platforms, you are now able to enter your card details directly to sign up for a monthly Access All Areas membership without the need for a PayPal account. What’s more, your details are totally safe. Stripe is certified to the highest grade of security. I don’t have to worry about dealing with people’s sensitive information, it’s all handled by a global financial service, not some random designer called Chris Spooner you know on the Internet!
Website traffic to Spoon Graphics has seen a massive decline over recent years, which means revenue from advertising has also decreased. Sites like StumbleUpon that used to send tens-of-thousands of visitors per day no longer exist, and Google’s never-ending algorithm changes have seen old posts gradually lose their established search rankings.
I’m going to be focusing a lot more on the Access All Areas membership in the future by slowly transitioning Spoon Graphics into a completely members-only site, complemented by the Spoon Graphics YouTube Channel, meaning a membership will one day be required to download the kinds of resources I currently give away for free.
Don’t worry, there will be plenty more freebies released before then, but if you fancy supporting Spoon Graphics, becoming an Access All Areas member is the best way to do so… You also get loads of pro-grade design products in return!
