I would love it if you could mention #Safe-Stock-Resources in the next Pimps and Whoas. :D It's a collaborative effort by stock providers that care about our community to band together and pledge to provide safe and legitimate stock resources as according to :devart: terms and guidelines. We are highlighting stock providers that are known for providing quality and safe stocks for artists to use. By creating the group, we're hoping to avoid those who would abuse a stamp. The submissions process is thorough and each member is double checked before they are approved into the group. I went more in depth on the group and subject here: [link]
