Free For All: Templates for Every Project and Purpose
Templates are one of the most useful free resources any creative professional can have on hand. They can save hours spent measuring items by hand, calling vendors for specifications, or searching Google for increasingly difficult to find information. Armed with a well made template for the project you need to produce, you can get right to designing — y’know, the good stuff.
This month’s Free for All is about templates (and mockups). The topic has grown from just a section of a Free for All, but as I was writing it, several friends and colleagues asked me to include a template for this or that or a blank product shot of this or that for packaging and clothing mockups. Before I knew it, filling these requests had turned into the better part of a Free for All on its own. Thus I filled in the rest of the article with some of the best templates and mockup materials I could find in a variety of areas — more than 300 templates and mockup images in all!
There are three full pages of resources here, so keep clicking when you get to the bottom of this page.

What can I find free for you? Want more free fonts? More Photoshop brushes? How about more online applications that do this or that for free? Tell me in the comments what you’d like to see in future installments of Free for All, and I’ll do my best bloodhound impression to track it down for you.
