However unless you are an experienced web developer, you will often find templates you downloaded from these template websites hard to edit. All programmers and web developers know it is often harder to learn another programmer's code than building new code. And often a website template which looks great in preview mode contains code from multiple source with different coding style, makes it even harder to understand and edit.
To save time and eliminate the need for tracing the template over and over, use a rotary cutter and mat. Rotary cutters come in various sizes. The small ones are good to use when cutting curved patterns whereas the large ones are excellent for cutting large, straight lines and for cutting through several layers of fabric simultaneously. Once again, lay your well-ironed fabric wrong side up on a flat surface on top of a rotary mat to protect the surface, place the template on top of the fabric, and proceed to cut using the rotary cutter. No need to trace around the template. All you need do is cut around the edges of the template with the cutter.
A purchased template must be edited in order to fill in your own content, images, logo, contact information, etc. Custom flash or HTML coding should also be done in order to make the template truly match the theme of your website. Many of the web templates you found on different sites might look similar to a certain point, and are often overwhelmingly corporate feel. Also remember you are not the only custom who purchase the web template unless you buy an exclusive license of the template (costs thousands!). And even if you do, prior to your purchase other customers might have already purchased that web template and have used it. This might not be a great problem for a personal home page. But many corporate or serious Internet business websites would need template customization beyond just replacing text and images.
It is possible to fall into a number of design traps if you are not completely comfortable with web design. Those who have at one time used Microsoft FrontPage are aware that it is possible to build certain constructions that look the same but have different construction. This may look good when viewed only with Microsoft Internet Explorer. The same page view with Firefox or another browser may find that it is all out of shape and balance. The design skill that goes into the building of a good template will save a person from this danger. The template will have proper structure and consistency in its design. It will probably have commented areas which show where to type in the text. This consistency makes a good website and saves us from the pain of getting negative comments on our work.
As mentioned earlier, web themes are the better options for building an attractive website within just two days and the expenses associated with themes are also lesser. Rather than hiring a professional website designer, which costs more, it is better to go for paid themes, which is a one-time investment. However, if a person searches for premium website templates with some layouts and formats in his mind, he might not be able to get the required format since different templates follow different formats. In this case, a designer can help the person, rather than a template.
If you try to contact the template website you bought the template from, you will find many of them not able to help you with your required template customization. As you might notice, there are hundreds of web sites offering exactly the same set of web templates -- as they are just affiliate websites reselling websites templates and flash templates from a third party template provider. Therefore many template websites are just interested in selling more templates rather than doing any customization work, or might just redirect you to an expensive template update service so that they can collection commissions by referring you. They are mostly just 'Internet marketers', rather than web developers.
