This is the main difference between traditional templates and the ones designed for nonprofit websites. A template that is created for a corporate or a content-based website will usually be inappropriate for a nonprofit project. Contemporary websites encourage interactivity and this feature is even more important for a nonprofit website.
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.

I have researched many websites that offer wedding PSD templates and found very few that meet the conditions mentioned above. One of which I found to be very good is called howto-planet.com. I have talked with the people at howto-planet.com and actually ordered one of their wedding template packages. I used it myself and found it very easy to work with Photoshop. In addition, I must say, their designs are beautiful. Right now they have 3 or 4 different wedding template packages and I am told they will be adding many more in the near future. I think they are still offering 1 free template sample so that buyers can try it out for free before they purchase their packages. They also display all their designs-images in high resolution so that you can actually see what you're getting. If you want to check out the site or to request a free PSD wedding template see the bio section of this article.
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.
An excellent way to begin an online store is by means of using a shop template such as those provided by Prestashop Templates. You can select the niche in which you are most interested since the eCommerce Template is arranged by category on the site. Also the associative solution is conveniently an open-source package. One inference of an open source solution is that the shop software and eCommerce Templates are available for use by anyone wishing to make their own modifications.
