    You just need to learn to use Adobe InDesign or Quark Xpress.
    You can make any page look any way you want to.
    If you need to use templates, whats the point! BE CREATIVE AND INNOVATIVE! Thats what mac is all about.

    They also used to have a subscription service for ad templates and ad clip art - I don't see that on their site now though. You can also look for magazines and books of advertising clip art - Metro Image Base was another, Dover has published umpteen books and CDs of advertising art
