Template submission guidelines

 

Clearly, branding is important to us here at Lucidpress, which is why we maintain a strong set of standards for inclusion in our template gallery. If you'd like to submit a template to us for consideration, please observe the following guidelines.

Templates must be unique. We check every submission for originality and will not accept templates created for other platforms.

Templates must remain exclusive to Lucidpress (i.e. not published on any other sites). We reserve the right to remove a template that has been duplicated elsewhere.

Templates must be well-designed and free of errors. Submissions that require excessive editing will not be accepted.

Templates must be designed within the Lucidpress platform and meet the following criteria:

  • If you use an image as the background, make sure it's set as the background, not just floating.
  • Set bleeds to 0.125 in.
  • Set Paragraph Styles. For each type in the document, you need to set a paragraph style. They can be named “Heading,” “Name,” “Footer,” etc.
  • Each type of page needs to have its own template, in case the future user wants to create new pages like the ones you already created.
  • Set the size for the document and for each page.
  • Use images from the following sources: Unsplash.com, Pixabay.com and Pexels.com.
  • Try to use no more than two typefaces to keep designs clean. Because the templates will be shared with others, we ask that you use our readily available fonts included in the product.
  • Ensure margins are aligned—objects to margins and to each other.
  • Ensure that all text can be edited. Do not use images for text.
 

For additional instructions on how to meet these requirements, please review this slide deck. Include the secret phrase “brisket” in your submission email, so we know you’ve read these instructions. We reserve the right to make edits to your template to match our brand standards and meet the needs of our users.

 

How to submit a template

 

Please email your submissions to templates@lucidpress.com. Include the following in your email:

  • Your name
  • Your template title
  • Your template, included as a Lucidpress shared link (anyone with the link can edit)
  • Your designer bio and link to your blog or website
 

Because we receive such a large number of template submissions, we unfortunately don't have time to email everyone back. If you do not hear from us within 5 business days, it's safe to assume your template didn't make the cut.
