This can include an image rich template for an online store or event templates.
The design preparation is the next step and involves our graphic department designing the professional Joomla templates. This step is one of the most extensive in our template production process. The graphic designers aim is to create templates with graphics and images that are unique in comparison to our competitors to ensure our customers receive a template that best matches their needs and requirements.
