Templates and Assets
As an author, you could supply templates, assets, or both, depending on the types of items you design. Let’s look at the differences below.
What is a “Template”?
Customers buy templates on Placeit, which is the name for the final product that is downloaded. This could be a mockup, a logo, a flyer, etc. See below for some examples of templates.
What is an “Asset”?
Each template can be made up of multiple assets. The design template below, for example, is made up of 4 assets.
Customers are able to swap in (and out) assets to create a template that suits their needs. As an author, you earn money whenever your assets are used in a final, downloaded template. You can read more about earnings on Placeit here.
How will I be notified if my items have been chosen for Placeit?
If your items have been chosen and published on Placeit, this information will be sent in a monthly Placeit email.
What happens to my item when it is published on Placeit?
Your item may be edited slightly before being published on Placeit in order to make it viable for Placeit users to customize and interchange graphics, icons, fonts, backgrounds, etc.
In some cases lines of text may need to be removed or elements reordered, but no large changes to the file will be made.
If you would prefer your items to not be made available for Placeit, you can fill out the form here to opt-out. You will be opting out your entire portfolio, as individual item opt-outs are not possible.
If you have any items already published on Placeit when you opt-out, we will endeavour to remove your items within 30 days. This timeframe also applies if you remove any items from Elements that have also been published on Placeit.
