Chuck Green’s “Ideabook” is a fascinatingly useful resource. It features more than 300 prebuilt print projects on a CD, attached to a book that shows and describes each one.

Among the templates are everything a client could ask for: forms, calendars, labels, folders, CDs & DVDs, invitations, newsletters, and 300 more.

Separate books are available with prebuilt files for QuarkXPress or InDesign. Keep one on hand for when you need a quick, accurate design for an item you’ve never made before.

$59.95 from

Note: the description for the QuarkXPress version seems to indicate that it’s only for version 7 and lower — but QuarkXPress 9 will open those files!

    Thank you Jay. I still have design books from Quark 3.1 to which I have run back all the time, for they carry the fundamentals often missed in subsequent updates. I will sure get a copy.
