Do you need to design a brochure, business card, letterhead, envelope, postcard, datasheet, flyer, or newsletter in a hurry? You can find artistic, original designs for affordable prices at Inkd: a growing community of designers and the businesses who need design work.
Each design comes with a royalty-free license and is fully customizable. Most files are Adobe InDesign or Illustrator, though Photoshop or QuarkXPress files are available upon request. If you can’t find a design you like, you can hire a designer on a freelance basis or make a special request.
When a print template is sold on Inkd, customers can contact the graphic designer directly for associated services such as helping to customize the template, development of a new corporate identity or designing a matching website.
If you’re a print designer, you can sign up to be a contributor and receive royalties on each sale. Prices range from $39 for a flyer or business card to $99 for a trifold brochure.
