Website owners can directly benefit from the vibrant and healthy marketplace of templates. With so many professionals seeking to break into the market, many quality templates are given away at no cost. These free templates often have the same quality as premium or even custom templates, but without the high price. Free templates allow for anyone with a website, individuals and businesses alike, to have a website that looks great at no cost.
You can also purchase premade templates. When purchasing ready-made quilting templates it is best to select those made of sturdy acrylic that have been laser cut which ensures precision. These premade templates are available in many shapes and sizes both online and in quilt and craft shops. They will save you a great deal of time over using homemade quilting templates, will be 100% accurate and will last for a very long time.
Next, trace your patterns, tracing the parts onto your plastic or paper. Space the parts one inch in all directions, and away from the others. Use a measuring device, such as a ruler to draw one-inch lines around the outer outline. On your templates, create a dot. You want the dots to meet two seams per count. The dots are important to mark your stitching areas.
A furniture maker might be able to make a single curved shape like a decorative shelf support, using a scroll saw and an oscillating sander, just as fast as using a template router. But this would only be an initial occurrence. If the process is to be repeated template routing will be easier and faster. A router bit leaves a much smoother edge than a scroll saw and the edge will need a loss less sanding. Make the template using smooth gradual curves on MDF, by sanding to layout lines on a stationary belt sander.
Paid templates have licenses also. They may restrict the template to one use per fee. It it usually stated that you may not repackage the template and sell it for yourself. The license of the paid template usually allows you to use the template and claim the design as your own. One service that I have seen sells templates under a more liberal license which gives extended uses and greater privileges. Be sure to follow the restrictions in your template's license for your own peace of mind.
Templates are "short cuts", but a short cut the novice user may not wish to take. Most templates require a particular, and generally expensive, set of tools to fully customize. Prospective template shoppers may want to consider hiring an outside design firm to actually do the work on their selected website template. Some designers recommend this method, as it provides a basic short-cut in terms of rudimentary layout and design that can be invaluable. Pay attention to the template site's terms of service, though, as many will require the end user directly purchase the template and deliver it to the designer themselves in lieu of the designers making the purchase.
