From greetings cards and party invites to festive mockups and backgrounds, check out the best design templates for the holidays.
It’s safe to say this year has flown by, which means only one thing—the holiday season is here! With most of us juggling dusting off those decorations, buying thoughtful Christmas gifts, and planning (and eating) feasts with friends and family, anything that can be done to save a bit of time on end of year projects is a win if you ask us. One thing we know is sure to be quick, easy, and guaranteed to bring some cheer, is using Christmas design templates.
Christmas and holiday graphic templates are themed pre-made templates that can be used to produce festive season’s greetings cards, party invites, leaflets, and so much more! Professional designers create the design templates, which you can then download from Envato Elements and customize with your own information.
You can either pick your favorite templates or be guided by the latest Christmas design trends and holiday color palettes. Once you have the subscription, you can download as many free design and video templates as you like.
Quite simply, anyone! They’re easy to use, so you don’t need to have years of experience under your (Santa) belt before you can get creative. For example, designers can use graphic design templates to create collateral for their clients, and small businesses, social media influencers, and marketers may use them to create their own content.
Flexibility is the key here! Design templates can be used in a whole range of contexts, from social media, to email campaigns, to PowerPoint presentations, to physical content like leaflets.
