Do you need more Apple Pages templates than the program comes with? Perhaps none of those templates are exactly what you need for your project. This article will give you some great resources on where to find templates for Pages.
Apple Pages templates come in handy when you need to save time in creating your projects. For instance, one basic letterhead template can help you create several different letterhead designs because the elements are already in place. All you have to do is add the elements of your current project. The iWork Pages templates that you're about to see will not only help you design letterheads, but they are great for designing business cards, brochures, presentations and much more.
iWorkcommunity - Apple Pages Templates
iWorkcommunity has hundreds of Apple Pages templates for people to use. They are organized by categories, which include resumes, education, newsletters and more. I liked their Other section the best because it has a variety of templates, such as recipe cards and greeting cards. This site is community-based, which means that the templates are submitted by their creators.
Stock Layouts has over 1,000 templates for Pages. You can find templates by product, such as brochures, newsletters, business cards and presentations. Alternately, you can search templates by industry or application. In order to use the templates, you must buy them individually or opt for a $299 subscription, which lasts three months. Prices vary among the templates, depending on what they are. For instance, a postcard template costs $69 while a brochure template costs $99.
What I liked best about this site was the optional designs that I saw when I clicked on a restaurant menu template. While the prices didn’t vary, I enjoyed looking at the different designs on the templates. If you don’t want to spend the money, you can get some inspiration.
