What Can HTML/CSS Templates Do?

For starters, CSS templates are a thing of beauty, especially when they’re free, since developers can actually make use of them without having the need to find a designer, or design one. There are a lot of developers out there who do not have the time to design, which applies to designers as well as those who are pressed for time to code their Photoshop files.

It goes like this:

  1. Design is made using Photoshop (or other Photoshop Alternatives)
  2. File is converted to HTML/CSS
  3. Developer converts HTML/CSS template into a fully-functional and feature-loaded website

If you are in a hurry and you don’t want to spend a lot of time on the design or codes, then you’re in great luck with these CSS templates from 2011 and 2012!

In the market, things like these cost several hundreds of dollars, so we’re not only helping you save time researching, we’re also actually helping you save money!

Want to Learn How to Build One?

There are a lot of free PSD templates on the web that you can download and try to convert. Here is an in-depth PSD template tutorial with its follow-up HTML/CSS conversion.

Making Things Responsive

      I am sorry, Tim, but it’s necessary evil, however if you come back you shouldn’t see that popup for a while, until you clean the cache!

    Flat HTMl pages / templates do very well on search engines, I know it is rather time consuming to build HTML pages but there are platforms like Dreamviewer to help you, once you import one of those great looking template in to a software package, its not too bad to develop a decent website. Of course updating them is a bit of a pain though. lol
    Thank you for sharing above templates, sure it will be useful to web designers and for someone looking to to a DIY job.

      Hey Charles,
      you are right about that, we don’t expect too much getting for free..or maybe in our days we expect too much? Free icons, free templates, themes – design industry is quite generous! Can you tell which one you consider using, and for what causes? In past I loved to use these templates to skin them, modify and give away to clients these customised,personalised versions..sneaky..what about yourself?

      Oh, and just checked your own website, I love your header man! Waiting for X-mas decorations there – hope that feature box is working well! It is the best placement you can possibly have and Derek Halpern from SocialTriggers made damn sure for us to know that :)

    These themes are superb, highly elaborated designs.
    Hats off to the designers…!

    I downloaded two themes, Light Grey and Designa. I have good enough knowledge in html and a little about php.
    But how to edit these themes to suit them for my website http://vsagar.com?
    I tried to open the pages of these themes in MS Frontpage, but the design gets disturbed.
    Will you please be kind enough to suggest me as how to edit the pages of the themes and put my material in the pages?
    I can only edit the pages using some GUI application….
    Please help…

      Hey Charles,
      you are right about that, we don’t expect too much getting for free..or maybe in our days we expect too much? Free icons, free templates, themes – design industry is quite generous! Can you tell which one you consider using, and for what causes? In past I loved to use these templates to skin them, modify and give away to clients these customised,personalised versions..sneaky..what about yourself?

      Oh, and just checked your own website, I love your header man! Waiting for X-mas decorations there – hope that feature box is working well! It is the best placement you can possibly have and Derek Halpern from SocialTriggers made damn sure for us to know that :)

    Your popup div window thing when you first come to the site is really annoying.

      I am sorry, Tim, but it’s necessary evil, however if you come back you shouldn’t see that popup for a while, until you clean the cache!
