Template Site


Ah, the template site. This is what most of the small websites you'll find around the web were built around. Someone, somewhere developed a theme (likely giving it away for "free" or an unbelieveably low price); a few years later 10,000 websites are using that exact same template.

Templates have their uses.

There are perks; some template sites are fairly nice, with a lot of prefabricated parts (some of which even cross-browser tested to prevent looking horrible on odd/non-standard devices). These are no silver bullet (no matter what their sales material says). They still take work, and sometimes more than just building from scratch. They can also, sometimes, provide a site you can live with for substantially less than a custom creation.

Value originality? The template site is not for you.

It's quick and dirty, easy for even novice developers to poke around in and eventually get something halfway decent.

Personally I detest templates - they make the web boring! Even so, they serve a purpose, and I offer them.

The starting price of this package is typically enough to complete the entire template with information and images customized to you.

A quick note about template sites.

You can't do much to a template based website besides change what's already there. Most templates are a mess internally, built to sell with no regard for maintainability. If you need a quick solution and know of a theme you like, this package can work for you. If you cannot find a theme that contains everything you want, you'll come out ahead financially by building a custom website rather than trying to heavily modify an existing solution.
