The wonderful thing about a CSS file is that even if you're working with premium business templates you're still free to make minor adjustments to font, background or sidebar colors. As long as the template license allows for minor changes, there is nothing preventing you from further customization of colors of the theme to make it better correspond your business requirements.
Sawing, rasping and filing are time consuming and tedious to way to make templates. It is also difficult to make a perfect curve with hand tools. Accurate templates are most easily made with sanders and routers.
Is the PSD template user friendly? You want to ensure that the PSD template is easy to work with when editing with image editing software like Adobe Photoshop. When working with these template designs the idea is to customize them by inserting your wedding photos into the appropriate spots within the design. You don't want a complicated template design that contains too many groups and subgroups, etc., making it more difficult and time consuming to work with. You need a template that is both elegant and at the same time, one that is constructed with a simple flow giving you easy access to the different image locations. Essentially, you want to get in easily, add your photo, resize/edit to fit and get out, without spending too much time and effort.
The quality of the backgrounds is another factor to watch for. If you're looking for a landscape background, for example, you could ask yourself the following question: was it taken from an actual photograph or was the landscape created with an image-editing program like Photoshop? Sometimes both options could work well as long as the Photoshop background was made in good taste which is usually the case if it was designed by a professional designer. The thing to keep in mind, when making a decision, is that the templates you choose to buy, that will make up your wedding photo album, will last a lifetime. Therefore you want to make sure that you choose very elegant designs.
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.
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.
