Posted in Freebies • Posted on 42 Comments

So, in lieu of this, we have compiled the ultimate roundup of 750+ style sets for you! Layer Styles are great resources, and can really save you heaps of time when designing something. They provide a great base of styles that are easily editable later on. It doesn’t stop there; don’t forget that they can easily create web buttons, icons, and Web 2.0 text styles.

        Reading through this is the same thing as reading through SERPs. A lot of these roundups are simply mindless and add no more value than a search engine. These aren’t hard to find. 750 is just overkill.

      Must take a whole lot of effort to spend your time going from post to post criticizing everyone else. We’re sorry you got stuffed in your locker everyday and bullies took your lunch money. It’s not our fault! We all know your type and nobody cares what you have to say. Find another hobby besides being an a-hole.
