12 of the Best Sources of Premium Vectors

There are a number of resources online for finding free stock photography, vectors, custom shapes for Photoshop, and all kinds of other useful items for designers. However, sometimes the quality you need will not be there with free items, and you may also spend more time searching for something free than it’s worth. There are certainly times when it’s appropriate to pay for quality work.

With that in mind, I thought it would be appropriate to put together a small collection of the best sources for buying premium vectors. If you know of other good sources that have been excluded from the list, please leave a comment.
