I am super excited about today's post because I am able to show you all the amazing things we are doing with our new Click Simple library. So many fun things, it has been difficult to contain myself for the last few weeks!
The Click Simple library will be a new area of our website dedicated to a variety of digital template downloads. Current plans include...
- New Click Simple packaging templates, featuring concepts from a variety of designers.
- Shape templates contributed by Kim Hughes as well as other designers.
- The inclusion of the original My Timeless Templates.
One of the things we have been working on behind the scenes is the new formats that the templates will be available in, making them easier than ever to use. It is our goal to have each template available for sale in three different formats. To explain even further, each template will have THREE different buy buttons, one for each type of format. Since there are so many elements & pieces to each template, we felt it would be easiest to give people JUST what they would use rather than several versions in one download which could tend to confuse a lot of customers. So you would just need to decide which format is right for you and what kinds of tools & resources you prefer to utilize when paper crafting.
Our existing, popular printed format, which allows you to continue to print them from your home computer directly onto your cardstock. These downloads will include all of the printable templates as well as our popular, in depth design idea download for inspiration.
SVG format, which works well with the popular Cricut digital cutter as long as you are also outfitted with the necessary Sure Cuts A Lot software. This brings a whole new spin to the templates, allowing you to skip the hand-cutting and go straight to the assembly! Purchasing this package will give you all of the template files in SVG format along with our popular, in depth design idea download for inspiration.
GSD format, which is compatible with the popular Silhouette digital cutter (or any other digital cutter that utilizes RoboCraft software). This too allows you to skip the hand-cutting and go straight to the assembly! Purchasing this package will give you all of the template files in GSD format along with our popular, in depth design idea download for inspiration.
*Unfortunately, we still have a few bugs to work out with both the SVG & GSD formats for the templates (and we want to make sure everything is running perfectly before making them available for sale). Therefore, the two new templates being introduced this month will be available on release night in the IN PRINT format only.
*The GSD and SVG formats should be ready before the next release in January and will be added to the store as soon as possible. We will make an official announcement here on the blog as well as keep you informed via our newsletter when everything is ready.
*It is important to note that each file type is a separate purchase. So if you know that you want to purchase these templates in either the SVG or GSD format, do not purchase the IN PRINT format on release night. You will want to wait and buy the digital cutter versions at a later date so you do not have to pay twice.
*After everything involving these new file types has been fine tuned, we will gradually be making the Timeless Templates available in both the digital cutter file types. Each month during release week we will keep you up to date and announce which of the Timeless Templates are newly reformatted.
We will be going into greater detail about all the tech talk involved with the new digital cutter formats in the course of the next few months, including tutorials complete with screen shots and what not. This is going to be an amazing journey, opening up an entire new world of paper crafting to everyone! Thank you for allowing us to share our excitement!
