  • 1 x troubleshooting cheat sheet for when things get weird.
  • Free updates.


Key features:

    Really?

    Just purchased it a couple months ago, and it was absolutely crazy XD. The distressing effect produced by this stuff is insane, It boosts my design process so that I can save a lot of time and working effectively between projects. Bit of regret that I don’t get this vector effect earlier. I really hope that TGTS keeps on doing this kind of effect and stuff :)

    Next Level

    True Grits Hardwear is helping me take my work to a next level. I appreciate the ability to pinpoint the textures as opposed to the blanket textures.

    Why didn’t I get these sooner?!

    I love this. I can’t put it any simpler.

    I. Love. This.

    These actions work so good and are easy to work with and the results are just what I’ve been looking for. To say that this will aid in your creative work is not even half of it. If you don’t have this then make sure to change that, you won’t regret it!
