Story about Document Icon
Submitting a document that has nothing written on it to your boss can be the hardest thing you could do, but technology has made that process a little easier. Our simple, downloadable design allows you to send your boss exactly what you intend to send him, nothing, just a free icon with no link. And, although your boss might admire the fact that you embrace the digital age, you might get fired.
You could also send or show these blank documents to your:
College professors—until they fail you, and you end up wasting your tuition money.
Potential employers—Of course, they'll realize that a cover letter and resume doesn't usually look like a 2X2 printed icon.
Parents—Just tell them that these are the new report cards, they'll never know what your grades were like for this quarter!
Remember, if the person you're showing it to asks you where you got that, don't say Icons8, we will deny everything.
