38 Attractive & Versatile Templates for Pages

I’ve long been a fan of iWork and Pages, and enjoy the design aesthetics of the templates included with the app. I recently went on the hunt for some third party templates that could make the Pages experience even better.

Some are free, others are commercial, but hopefully they will help to make Pages more versatile and powerful than ever before!

Jumsoft Pages Templates

This is a commercial package that includes over 100 Pages themes for $39. It’s a good price for the different styles on offer, and well worth investigating further. Here are twelve examples from the Jumsoft collection:

StockLayouts Pages Templates

These templates are commercial, and come in with a fairly hefty fee. They cost $99 each, or you can join StockLayouts for three months for $399 (this allows you to download 150 templates, and essentially works out at $2.66 per theme). It’s a really awesome deal if you’d like to build up a great collection of templates, but not so much if you’re only looking for one or two. Here are twelve really excellent StockLayouts examples:

One Eyed Goldfish

One Eyed Goldfish have an interesting range of templates. Some are far superior to others, but a few decent templates can be found in and amongst. You can either pay £50 for access to all the templates, or purchase them individually for £10 (around $16).

Other Free Templates

If you’d prefer not to hand over any money for a selection of new templates, these free examples may be appealing. They don’t have quite the same design quality as commercial offerings, but certainly expand the range of styles available!

Creating Your Own Theme

Macworld have an excellent guide for creating your own Pages theme. The basic steps involve:

  1. Start with a blank document.
  2. Add text, images, and placeholders (these allow drag-and-drop functionality for images).
  3. Repeat for the different pages you’d like to see in the template.
  4. Save your document as a template, rather than a standard document.

Have fun, and feel free to share any other great templates with us in the comments.

    I have been working on the newspaper template but it won’t let me edit the first page. Why?

  • ChickenWings

    because you need to go to Arrange then Make Background Objects Selectable.
