I was looking into InDesign print templates from DigitalRiver and Envato and need ONE USE clarification. I am comparing them to one-off self-publishing services such as Blurb, Lulu, and CreateSpace, Amazon. I would appreciate clarification on the following hypotheticals. As a guide, I saw an InDesign business template was $18 standard and $900 extended license when end-user sales are projected. I believe I understand most of the basics.
• #1 Standard “book” template-PERSONAL. I use the template personally to write a variety of books. First, as manuscript and drafts. One day, I may sell my books.
• #2 "book"templates and “business templates” AS A SERVICE. I do the same as above but for clients. Most not for sale, some may be for sale. Self-publishing folks might see extended licenses as expensive. Large publishers, not an issue.
• #3 Photo book templates for both person, family, and business clients. A family wants a photo book and may buy one or two. Other photo books may be wedding photographers.
#4 - I buy a resume template. I use it to produce templates for myself, family, and friends. I then want to charge clients for setting up their resumes. I read somewhere (I think) that freelancers might NOT need to buy a new template for every different use when they “getting the product out there?” I could be wrong.
Where do Envato and DigitalRiver theme designers get one-off or self-publishing PRINT runs. Are some themes “Blurb” ready or is it PDF export only?
As you can see, I like and want to investigate print templates. Any links to other info would be welcomed. Thank you.
