Adobe InDesign templates are an easy way to give a head start to any project you are working on. A template is a type of document which has the ‘bones’ of a layout that you can build your project upon. If you have a layout that you often go back to, then you should look into the possibility of using a template.
If you don’t know where to look for good free InDesign templates, this post will come in handy for you. I have divided all InDesign templates by category to help you find exactly what you need.
No matter what you are trying to find, whether it is a free InDesign template download, or you don’t mind purchasing premium ones, this post will give you only the first-rate templates.
If it is your first time working with Adobe InDesign templates, this is, probably, your first question. I will answer it below and you will see that the process is not difficult at all.
There are only 2 steps involved, which means that you will learn it very quickly and will be able to work with any types of templates from now on.
Extract the contents of the .ZIP file you have downloaded. Pay special attention to the Font.txt file if there is one. If the designer used special fonts, this file will have links for you to download them. Go ahead and do that if you want to.
The folder with the template may include Photoshop files or Microsoft Word files besides the files for Adobe InDesign. We only need to open the latter ones.
Sometimes designers include files for the older versions of InDesign (for example, .IDML files are for InDesign CS4 or later). If you are using InDesign CC, you need to open the .INDD file. That’s it! Now you can customize the template to meet your needs.
