Downloadable templates
« on: March 12, 2013, 01:43:53 PM »
My boss is currently in the process of updating out website and making it more interactive. She's having it created in such a way that clients can pick a template, illy, PS, quark, Indy etc., download it and design their job and submit back to us as a print ready pdf. What she would like to know: are the templates formatted in a particular way in order for them to be uploaded to our site in order to be downloaded by a client? I've posted a site as an example of what I'm referring to. I suggested to her that I should just download a few of the templates and check them out, but she does not want to do that for some reason, thinking I suppose that it is stealing.  :hangme: Also, if it's the case that every conceivable size template created in every page design app, is there a site that offers all these for free or a fee? Thanks for any advice.

Probably just formatted in the application that created them and then zipped for upload download would be my guess.

I've done something similar in the past and that is all we did. I was never able to find a site that offered preset templates but did find a few here and there that I happened to barrow.  :grin:

Thanks for the replies! Yes I hear you---see my noose thingy in my original post. That implies in a secret, low key tone that yes, I want to just down load those free templates and use them as I wish but I've got a sissy standing over my shoulder.  :lmao:

4Over has a bunch.

You'll still end up getting JPGs or totally screwed up templates from desighners who think they are helping.

Thanks Jim but that almost makes me  :puke2:

I hate when people use Photoshop to do page layout. :shoots_self:

I prefer this one:

Or this one:

http://old.4over4.com/free-illustrator-design-templates.aspx

or even this one:

Look closer. That link pops up photoshop templates. Beside the PS logo is Indy, Illy, Quark.

I posted too soon and didn't realize you did look closer. Yes I agree, red flags to all PS template users.
