We have also found that, in our experience, our customers usually start off using one of our products and then expand to several products quickly, so we felt it was best to offer all 1,800+ components and frameworks for a subscription fee that starts at $395 per month for a team of 5 developers. Additionally, we might be able to offer discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our product specialists today to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.
