Why do I need an account?

We offer 2 levels of account. Standard account for registered users; this enables you to download the FREE grids, search and browse for PECS. All PECS not included in the FREE grids will be displayed in low resolution and in black and white ONLY.

The subscriber account is charged as a one off payment of just £19.95. This enables you to view the PECS in full colour, add them to your grid, save grids, load grids, duplicate grids and print grids in 4 sizes.


How do I pay?

You can pay online via PayPal by clicking on the subscribe button in the dropdown menu for your account, or by going to the Pricing page.

A PayPal account is not required to subscribe, we accept all major cards through the PayPal gateway.


Why are the images in Black and White?

All images are displayed in Black and White until your account has been upgraded to a Subscriber account (See above). Once you make payment online through the PayPal gateway you will be re-directed to our site and your account will be automatically upgraded.
