Congratulations, people! It’s another holiday from Template Monster â€“ just something that you have already got used to. Except for this time it’s really big â€“ now it’s about our sixth birthday! And big holiday means big presents, right? We will return to the presents a little bit later in this post though. Now let us get sentimental for a minute and recall the major thing that we’ve been through during those years.
It’s been almost 20,000 templates, thousands and thousands of customers and hundreds of promotional collaborations during these 6 years. Hard to believe that we’ve made it here but it’s a fact â€“ we’re the best. But it’s not only about our efforts as your loyalty has also played a role in our overall success. And for that we thank you very much.
There are also tons of good things that we’ve done during this time. For example our social responsibility programs (â€œChanging the Webâ€ and â€œEnhancing the Future Webâ€) as well as launching an educational websites network that helps you in graphic design, HTML coding, PHP programming and Flash editing (refer to Webdesign.org to find all of our network’s websites).
And here we are now â€“ a year older but nevertheless fresh and stronger than ever. To prove that we have redesigned our own website, now it is optimized for a wider screen resolution and is much more convenient to use (not to mention the fact that we can place a lot more useful information for you on this increased space). Consider this a present #1 from us. Let’s say goodbye to the old design and welcome the new one.
Present #2 is a whole month of a 5% discount that will be active for all of the products presented at Template Monster until June 28th (see the page with instructions on how to use a discount). Hurry up to take advantage of it â€“ one month is not that long!
I guess you still remember our similar giveaway promos that we have held during last February and March (St. Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day respectively). What we have for you now has something in common with those promos except for the fact that this time it’s all even more impressive and you will love it much more than last time.
This time we give away a FREE Web 2.0 Iconset! Reflections, bright colors, rich surfaces and slight 3D style â€“ all of that is in the bonus iconset that you may get. Besides this time the iconset contains 75 (!!!) icons which makes it our record-holding giveaway.
The procedure of getting it is all the same â€“ you purchase something from Template Monster during the period of May 8th to May 31st 2008 and you automatically become an owner of this beautiful set of design masterpieces.
The Web 2.0 iconset we’re talking about is also available for regular purchases at Template Monster and is $55 worth so hurry up to take advantage of this opportunity and get it FOR FREE!
During the last two weeks we have held a survey for customers to have purchased one of our Dynamic Flash Photo Galleries. From this post we will proudly share its positive results with you.
The thing is that before holding this survey we have launched a second release of the Dynamic Flash photo Galleries which gave us the right to know what the customers’ opinion about the first version was.
It appeared to be that our customers are pretty happy about the first version of Dynamic Flash Photo Galleries and the first release’s features were enough for most of the audience. Additionally 76% of the respondents are going to recommend this product to their friends and colleagues. By the way we encourage everyone who likes this product to promote it with our affiliate program. This will monetize the way you feel about it The registration with the Affiliate Program is completely free and will be easy to use (please refer to MyTemplateStorage.com for registration and more details).
But we won’t deny that there was a couple of customers who were not satisfied with their experience of working with the Dynamic Flash Photo Galleries. Without any doubt we will keep working with these people to solve their problems and we’ll do our best to fix their negative impressions.
From this post we sincerely thank all of the customers who have taken part in our survey. As for the people who didn’t have a chance to take part in a survey we always welcome their feedback about our products in general and about Dynamic Flash Photo Galleries in particular. For example feel free to let us know your opinion in the comments to this post, we would appreciate that.
In the third release of Dynamic Flash Photo Galleries that we are planning currently not only we promise to fix all of the bugs that we were shown in this survey but we’ll also add new striking features and functionality to this great product.
What we have for you today is the new portion of templates for projects that are not standard (for some reason). We thought these would be interesting for you not only as for potential buyers but also as for audience that knows what the good design is. Anyways, enjoy the works below.

That’s it for today, people. But just like last time – I promise you that soon there will be a new set of templates for non-standard businesses. It’s only a matter of time
Well, guys, here’s another brilliant idea from TemplateMonster that you will love. Let’s start it as a cable TV advertisement spot with rhetorical questions and answers Here we go:
(Q): Ever dreamt of finding a website design for your non-standard business???
(Q): Tired of not finding a template designed for your very own Beaver Farm or an Ear Massage Salon???
(Q): Looking for someone brilliant enough to foresee your needs that even your shrink didn’t know about???
(A): Well, consider it your lucky day as TemplateMonster is now brilliant enough to know what you really want. As if we read your mind!
Ok, enough of this cable TV tricks. What I’m talking about is that we have started producing template designs that are made for rare businesses or businesses that are not actually widely spread. Nevertheless we are totally positive that these designs will also have their share of customers’ attention. Here are some of them:
Will be suitable for any kind of limo service and although there are not too many of these services possible â€“ this design is nevertheless great. Even in case you invent some new revolutionary limo-related service we guarantee that this template will still be easily customizable for that. The design is glamorous and shiny â€“ just like these long beauties with wheels.

This WordPress theme was created especially for those who is interested in magic, magic history and theories; who was a witness of some mystical, paranormal or supernatural events and wants to tell about them everybody.

That’s it for now, folks. But I hope you don’t think we’re gonna stop here. Soon (VERY SOON!) there will another portion of templates of this kind, then there will be another and another… That’s right, never shall we stop!
After having launched Joomla and Mambo CMS templates last fall we have noticed that even though these two product types are strikingly popular the audience still wants more Therefore in response to this growing demand for various CMS products we have decided to be so kind and to launch a new CMS designs range which we have chosen to be Drupal Themes. Besides that you, our friends, were asking us over and over again about when we will finally start producing Drupal Themes. Anyways, here they are – brand new and yet so much impressive â€“ Drupal Templates!
To tell you the truth this CMS platform has been a subject of our interest for a long time now. I guess all of the webmasters have heard of it for its irrefutable bright sides. I mean by its functionality Drupal is quite equal to Joomla (and in some aspects it is even more advanced). Drupal’s developers even claim that it is rather a platform for developing content management systems, but even though so advanced Drupal is still an incredibly efficient CMS by itself. It has a system of personalized settings, access management system, polls system, a built-in forum and a diverse system of working with themes and templates.
This advanced CMS platform combined with a beautiful design is surely that something that will make your web experience truly unforgettable. Don’t hesitate to go and browse our Drupal Themes.
You’re going to love this, people, as almost a year after the first version of revolutionary Dynamic Flash Photo Galleries have been launched we are now starting a new technology of producing them that will result in an improved and enhanced interface.
But first thing’s first. All of the major updates and improvements are about frontend section, admin section and encodings. In particular the frontend section updates include XML support, navigation buttons in the gallery (“Previous photo” and “Next Photo” buttons). Also frontend improvements enable you to create as many categories as necessary.
In the admin section you no longer have to use “htaccess” as there is a “login” feature integrated now. Besides that there’s an errors handler added as well as the image editing tools (Crop, Flip, Rotate and Resize). And with the new â€œFonts loaderâ€ component all of the characters and fonts encodings will be supported.
The 23rd of March â€“ which is the day Easter is this year – is really close and it’s just about time to decorate everything that surrounds you in an appropriate way. We are sure you can take care of the in-house decorations and roasting a delicious lamb yourself. Meanwhile allow us to think about the website designs that would be suitable for this greatest Christian holiday.
Here’s what we’ve got for you this time. There is a product category of Religious Templates at TemplateMonster which will we will provide a discount of 20% for. This Easter special will last until the end of March 2008 giving you plenty of time for choosing and purchasing your own Easter design. Besides we remind that there’s another holiday special lasting concurrently this March and giving a 25% discount for the category of St. Patrick’s Green Templates as well as providing every single March customer with a free St. Patrick’s Day Iconset. These two bonus offers will not affect each other and you are absolutely free to take advantage of both of them.
Yes, today is the day! The whole world turns green â€“ rivers are filled with green beer, women use green lipstick and even RGB Gamma today tends to be a little greener than usually Anyways, lots and lots of holiday miracles that make us all feel so proudly Irish.
Besides don’t forget of another part of holiday which is closer than you think â€“ it’s right here, at Template Monster. In case you forgot here’s what it’s about: during the whole month of March 2008 there will be a 25% discount for the St. Partrick’s Green Templates product category. Plus a free St. Patrick’s Iconset along with every single product purchase during this period. Another thing you might wanna know is that there’s another holiday special coming up this month that will run concurrently to the St. Patrick’s Special and will also last until the end of month. Take a guess and think about what particular holiday I’m talking about (tip: it’s one of the year’s greatest Christian holidays). In other words, soon there will be two discounts for you from Template Monster. What a March, huh?
After having such a good time with the St. Valentine’s Day special, we decided that giving away different bonuses is really good business and a lot of fun. In fact we’re so inspired that we decided to organize even greater bonus offers. This time it will be a bonus program for St. Patrick’s Day – the year’s greenest day!
This Bonus will include a FREE St. Patrick’s Day Iconset that will be available to every single customer that buys any template from Template Monster during March 3 through March 25, 2008. This Bonus is similar to our St. Valentine’s Day Bonus as the Bonus Iconset will also be available for purchase just like the rest of our Iconsets (check out the Holiday Iconset). Another part of our Green Bonus is the price discount for any St. Patrick’s Day Templates – very green and very Irish for St. Patrick’s Day.
Can you smell it? This is the scent of a new life starting as the winter ends, the scent of spring. The essential ingredient of this spring scent is the smell of the St. Patrick’s Day beer. We at TemplateMonster are big fans of St. Patrick’s Day and our celebrations are never limited to simply drinking green beer although always include it
Anyways, our special way to celebrate this year is the new templates category called St. Patrick Green Templates. They are all either of the Irish green color scheme or have the Irish motifs present in their designs. Right now the category has only several templates and designs but we constantly update it as there appeared to be a lot of green templates in our collection. By the way our favorite one is the Irish Pub Flash template, perfectly fits our spring cheerful mood
Here it is! The whole world – and especially the Internet – has turned romantically pink and Template Monster is no exception. As you may have seen we have produced many templates of different types for this holiday. But special efforts were directed to production of St. Valentine’s Day Templates for Joomla CMS – that have now become one of the sales leaders here and a favorite product type.
But here are some more surprises for you! In addition to traditional Joomla Templates we have even managed to produce 4 Joomla 1.5 Templates right before this holiday – and they are so wonderfully romantic! As we have previously mentioned Joomla 1.5 is a new updated and enhanced version of Joomla CMS and it has been officially released less than a month ago. We are sure that these beautiful, new designs will make a truly lovely present to you from your new Valentine’s Day Cupid – TemplateMonster.com
This year Cupid is shooting his arrows at each Template Monster customer to bring you the romantic holiday feeling. Just for this holiday we have designed a beautiful St. Valentine’s Day iconset that is actually a main part of our holiday bonus offer. We will give this iconset absolutely for FREE to each and every customer who buys any template from Template Monster throughout the month of February 2008. The romantic icons from this set are also available in the Iconset products section on Template Monster and you may purchase it without having to buy a template.

It would be a real shame to miss this opportunity to please your customers or visitors with these beautiful little romantic icon elements. Especially since they be “yours” for FREE.

Today in the age of instant messaging it seems hard to believe that it could take so long to reach someone. This would be expected for a person who does not have an email address or who lives deep in the jungle. Believe it or not, that’s exactly what happened is this situation. We were trying to deliver our Golden Gift Certificate to the Winner of our Christmas Lottery. Over and over we tried to reach the lucky Winner but all we got were unable to deliver messages. It became obvious that the lucky Winner had entered an invalid email. What a shame, huh?
Because of the invalid email address, clarified after numerous efforts to contact the Winner we had to choose a new Winner. The new lucky Winner is Takis Poniros, the graphic artist and web-designer from Greece – that beautiful country of history and culture. Takis is a customer that has used our services for about a year and is now lucky enough to be rewarded for it with something more than just customer satisfaction from his template purchases – although it’s his customer satisfaction that made him our continued customer. The Template chosen by Takis, our Christmas Lottery Winner is #17735 – great choice, a product from our brand new Premium Templates category! He plans to use it either for his own website or for one of his clients. Well, the Template Monster Team wants to extend big congratulations now to Takis and to wish him a Happy New Year full of design successes.
