You can view my PSD template here:

Blue color scheme: home, about us, blog, contact us

Green color scheme: home, about us, blog, contact us

Orange color scheme: home, about us, blog, contact us

Let me know your feedback on the issues that were raised below.

My PSD template has been rejected for these reasons: 1) Your template has a good start but, as we have high standards, you will need to make some additional improvements in overall aesthetics and aspects such as graphics, layout, colors, etc.

2) Overall template typography needs additional refinements and improvements before it will be ready for ThemeForest.

3) Further, PSD template category required template with higher quality in terms of design and aesthetically. It has to be pixel perfect, details, professional, unique, eye pleasing and balance.

**I made changes to the template from my first rejection, resubmitted and received the identical rejection email pasted above so I resubmitted a 3rd time (with no changes) for a second opinion and a different reviewer said this:

This template is not ready for ThemeForest. Your template does not provide a unique enough design with the necessary design quality, features and options to compete in the marketplace at this time. It requires improvements in term of design, visual hierarchy, typography, layout and its aesthetic quality but most importantly, its uniqueness and how the design is executed.

At this stage in the design I am, unfortunately, not able to provide more specific feedback other than what I’ve stated above (the design needs overall, general improvements). With further improvements I may be able to provide more specific feedback.

Please also keep in mind that this item will have a higher chance of getting approved as a coded item since the standards for PSD are much higher.

for start

- remove the net background (use something else not so obvious or just solid color) - as they sad work on your typography, try different fonts and spaces (padings)

for start that’s my opinion but there’s a lot of work to be done. And as everyone here say we all get rejected but don’t give up it’s an amazing practice.

Thanks for the input! When you say ”...spaces (padings)”, do you mean the padding around elements on the template or spacing between letters/words in the typography?

Does anyone else have some feedback for me? I’ve read in other item discussions that the PSD templates category is harder to get accepted in. Anyone who is familiar with the Site Template (HTML templates) category – do you think this current design will get accepted as a Site Template instead – provided I take the time to code it?

Thanks for any help.

Does anyone else have some feedback for me? Either critiquing my PSD files or about whether it would get accepted as an HTML template instead.
