Free Craft Downloads:- Paid Membership

We've put off having paid membership for a long time, after all, it's pointless having a site called "Free Craft Downloads" if you are going to charge people! The other thing is we actually enjoy doing it and somehow it seems wrong to charge for something you are doing because you enjoy it.

Unfortunately the costs of running the site are going up and up and every few months we go through a situation where things get remarkably "tight" and stressful just trying to get the money to pay for the server etc.

So here is what we've decided.

Everything which is in place at the moment will stay the same, all the papers will still be free to download and we will continue to produce the free papers on a weekly basis.

The Paid Membership of the site will be something completely new and everything in it will be "in addition" to the content we already have.

Paid Membership will include the following benefits:
  • The ability to download each weeks sets of papers as a zipped file rather than individual papers.
  • Access to zipped files of past sets which includes 10,000s of papers (we will eventually make ALL past sets available as zipped files)
  • Unique Premium sets which will only be made available to paid members.
  • If that all isn't enough there will be a very special sign up bonus which will be worth more than the sign up cost in its own right!
We will be working very hard to ensure that paid member receive the best value for money possible whilst  not decreasing what is on offer for the normal web site visitor. By doing this we hope that everyone will be happy.

If you have any comments or further suggestions we'd be very happy to hear them.
