Frequently Asked Questions

InDesign Templates

What are these templates and who are they for?

The templates you see on BestIndesignTemplates.com are Adobe InDesign files that facilitate the process of creating different publications: books, magazines, brochures, newsletters, flyers, etc. The process of creating an InDesign publication can take days or even weeks from concept to implementation. Those who do not have that kind of time can streamline the process by purchasing pre-made InDesign publications (often called InDesign templates or InDesign layouts). From a technical point of view, such publications are ready to be printed or distributed electronically; however, they only contain sample (“dummy”) content, so customization of the template involves adding your own content (text and images) into the pre-made template.

Our customers are often graphic designers who wish to save time in designing for their customers, and business owners and marketing professionals who don’t have the time or the budget to outsource.

Do you have a sample template I can download?

You will find a number of free templates in the “Free InDesign templates” section of this website.

I want a specific template. Can you help?

Sure! If you have a great idea for a template to add to our collection, just get in touch and we’ll do our best to design something. Once the template is designed, you will be able to purchase it just like any other template on the website – at no extra cost.

What is included in my template?

That depends on the template you are purchasing. Each template on our site comes with a description – be sure to read it before you purchase the template. The template description will tell you about the main characteristics of the template, and will also list all the files included in the template package.

Can I add more pages?

Each template description specifies how many pages the template comes with. In other words, this is a number of pre-designed layouts you can use ‘as is’, or as a foundation for other page layouts. You can also create your own layouts from scratch inside of templates, or copy layouts from other templates. All in all, there is absolutely no restriction on how many pages you can have in your own creation, and you can add an unlimited number of pages to any of our templates.

Your templates are very cheap. Are there any hidden fees?

There are no hidden costs. It is either a one-time fee (you pay for each product you want to download), or a monthly subscription fee (you pay a small fee monthly to download unlimited number of products).

Downloading Templates

How do I download the template?

Customization

Can I modify the template?

Yes, of course. You can change the size and the layout, replace fonts and images, change text styles and colors – your only limit is your imagination!

What software do I need to edit the template?

Please check the file description, as this information differs depending on the template. “Files” simply tells you the file formats that come with your template. “Software” tells you which version of InDesign can be used to open the template. Please note that all the templates come packaged in Zip archives. You will also need appropriate software to extract files from a Zip archive.

Can I open your templates on PC? What about Mac?

Our templates are platform-independent. You can open them on both PC and Mac.

I don’t understand how to change something; what do I do?

Please check the Help Documentation for your template. It is updated regularly based on feedback and questions we receive from our customers. To find the documentation for your template, please see the README.txt file in your template folder.
