Hi, In a few days I’ll be submitting my first Envato file to themeforest, It will be a PSD Template, I have a few questions that i would like to ask.

1. Does my .PSD Template need to have a Wireframe/360 Grid kind of thing? (Blue lines)

2. Along with the .PSD file in the .zip, Will i need to include a readme file (If so, what do i need to include?)

3. I’ve had a quick look at the PSD Template section, all of the PSD Templates that I’ve had a look at have 3+ different pages, Do i need to do the same for my PSD Template or can i just do 1 or 2 pages?

4. Has anyone ever noticed that, designing PSD templates is just so much fun? (:

I think thats about it.

I also need to fix up my Envato profile page… Its so out-dated…

1.) I don’t think it’s required but it might help it get accepted.

2.) Yeah, a README is required. Maybe include instructions on how to change the color theme, logo text, images, etc. From my experience, you pretty much have to write a README for people who have never seen a computer screen for it to get approved.

3.) More pages/options makes it more likely you’ll get accepted, but technically you could submit 1 page and it would be fine if the design is really good.

4.) Ehhhhhhhhhh

The PSD category is the hardest one, don’t be surprised if it gets rejected.

Maybe i should post a screenshot of it before i submit it? get the community feedback and all that…

If it doesn’t get accepted, I’ll move to Site Templates and try again, while giving the .PSD away for free. (:

It would be cool if you posted some screenshots so fellow authors can CC prior to submitting because reviewers don’t usually leave specific comments as it’s not their job to do so.

Also, I’ve seen some themes using other peoples social icons, even if there allowed to be used for commercial use, is the option there to not add any credits in the description?

It is sometimes a condition of using the icon set (if you have gotten it for free) that you link to where you got it from, otherwise it is either
- To demonstrate a footer/copyright info section
- There because sharing is cool

Hope that helps :)
