Creating templates that get accepted into the Inkd marketplace isn’t difficult. To help Inkd provide template products that qualify as great design, we simply look for any submission to showcase three core components:
However, there are several tips that can not only make creating templates easier, but help your design catch our eye and a customers:
Initially, Inkd can only make your designs available for sale in the file format that originally submit to us for review. Designs contributed in both Adobe InDesign and Illustrator are most popular. Apple iWork pages are becoming popular as well. Adobe Photoshop files are well liked by some customers, but these must have all shapes as vectors to be accepted. QuarkXPress and CorelDraw have a smaller audience.
Designers who submit more than one file type can reasonably expect to sell more than those who only submit one file format. However, we realize that this is often not practical. Over time Inkd may even convert your designs into additional formats, and submitting one well designed template is better than submitting nothing at all!
