Our DesignTemplate is now Adobe Illustrator CS1 compatible!!

Thanks to de-funk for letting us know that some people were complaining about CS1 compatibility for the Design Template.

We actually received one complaint about this issue, but we thought it was an isolated case. Guys, if there's a problem, let us know ASAP so we can fix it ya?

Anyways, we've re-saved the files as CS1 compatible now - you can download it here. We have one sight problem though....we don't actually have Illustrator CS1 to test.

As such, please test it to the maxes and let us know how it goes. You can either comment on this post, or just send your feedback to Also, any further suggestions on how to improve the site can be sent to

On a marginally related topic, we finally checked out Inkscape today. A pure Scalable Vector Graphics editor. Of course, like anyone, we're skeptical about anything that's free, but after downloading it, we were very impressed.


As you can see here, the interface isn't too different from Illustrator. It's been about 4 hours of tinkering, and my immediate impressions are this - No it does not have as many features as AI, but somehow, it feels alot smoother. Try it out for your self here.

We might consider supporting it in future, if there's demand for it. If you're an Inkscape user, and want us to come up with an Inkscape template for you to design Foldees cards for our next competition let us know at

I'm a proud Inkscape user, but I also have Illustrator installed so it's no biggie exporting to SVG from there.
