BEAVERTON, Ore., July 23, 2009 — StockLayouts LLC
(http://www.stocklayouts.com), the pioneer of graphic design
templates, today announced a new template resource, offered
under its new brand, LayoutReady(TM)
(http://www.layoutready.com), that provides small business
owners with a large selection of agency-grade templates for
creating marketing materials suitable for high-quality
output on office color printers. The templates, which are
available for immediate download in both U.S. and
international "A" page sizes, are easily customized to meet
the needs of the business customer by using common Microsoft
software applications that most small businesses already
The royalty-free templates include customizable layout
files, carefully selected, high-quality, 150 dpi stock
photos and custom illustrations, including logo designs.
They are produced to exacting technical standards and
include page borders to accommodate trouble-free printing on
color laser or inkjet printers. LayoutReady templates are
designed in complete business sets and provide most small
businesses with all of the content they need to produce
professional quality brochures, flyers, newsletters, data
sheets, stationery, postcards, ads, menus and posters
without the expense of printing them on a commercial press.
According to Tami Cooper, President and CEO of StockLayouts,
"LayoutReady.com is intended for the small business and home
office user on a tight budget who wants to create marketing
materials that look as if an agency produced them." Says
Cooper, "Quality of design is enormously important, but cost
is always a consideration. On both counts, LayoutReady
provides a convenient solution."
LayoutReady.com provides a template editing guide to assist
in the editing process in both Microsoft Word and Publisher
software applications. Templates may be customized by
inserting text, changing fonts, size and style of text,
adding pictures and logos or editing pictures, clip art and
drawing objects. Stock photos may be swapped between
templates, removed or replaced with the user’s own images. A
template for use in one industry or business type may also
be easily re-purposed for another.
Once customized to the user’s needs, the marketing piece may
be printed either in the user’s office or at a copy center.
Special business card, postcard and brochure papers from
manufacturers such as HP and Avery can lend a professional,
finished look and feel to the completed LayoutReady design.
