WrapPixel – Free and Premium Dashboard Templates
As a designer, you’re always on the hunt for good templates. Whether it’s for inspiration or for instant utilization. WrapPixel is directed at web designers, developers, and agencies that are looking for high-quality resources to make their lives easier while saving lots of time. Every month, new content is added to WrapPixel, that’s a promise. Here, the range goes from affordable to free. Certainly, you’ll find a bunch of dashboard templates to take with you.
In the area of admin templates, there are a few free and premium Bootstrap admin templates to explore as well. Prices range from 12 to 18 USD. The respective live demo is a handy way of quickly checking out the quality. Each dashboard comes in three variants, all of them being fully responsive, and provides plenty of extras. For instance, thousand of icons, diverse demos, hundreds of example pages, UI elements, as well as color schemes are included.
Whether you’re looking for a mini sidebar, MegaMenu, range slider, stylish tooltips, tabs, or treeview: lots of modern techniques are applied. That’s no surprise either, as the templates were only created on the 10th of March 2017, and already received their first update on the 28th. The templates are based on Bootstrap in version 3.3.7. As files, all PSDs, HTML, JS, and CSS were packaged. The layout is kept responsive (set up for IE10+, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Edge), and well documented. I recommend testing the free offers.
Of course, as a Photoshop fan, my first click on the homepage went to the menu item PSD Bundle. Behind it, a whole package of high-quality templates is hidden. Currently, there are more than 140 templates in this collection. For the individual user, they charge 29 dollars, and at 89 dollars for multiple users, it’s not that much more expensive. The button “View Live Demo” starts the show. Then, it takes a bit until the 140+ examples are loaded. A click on the preview opens the respective template further down, letting you check the quality quite easily.
With that many files, there’s always a wide variety to discover. Variations of orders, used colors, shapes, special content, and even the length of the individual templates varies. Generally, the quality of the graphic templates is high. Here, I recommend you take a look at the offer yourself and click through the provided templates.
The themes are sorted into 15 categories. These range from admin dashboard, to agencies, medicine, e-commerce, landing pages, properties, blogs, WooCommerce, and Prestashop, all the way to blogger templates, so they cover a lot of ground. The one thing all templates have in common is that they base on the Bootstrap grid, and exclusively use Google Web Fonts.
This way, turning the graphics into a functional website is ensured. You can tell that lots of time and ideas went into the production.
Although a couple of freebies are listed between commercial offers, there’s a menu item with this label. Because of that, you are able to see all free offers, such as dashboard templates, at a glance. The quality is equally high, which you can tell by the amount of demos, UI elements and fonts, the files, example pages, as well as the visual realization.
Some of these products are available as a pro version with additional extras. So you do end up booking additional premium content quite quickly. After the latest update, you can see that these free gimmicks were not a one time thing, as the provider also keeps the freebies up to date.
WrapPixel promises lifelong free updates of all dashboard templates and PSD files. No matter which template was downloaded, whether it was free or premium, you can be sure to receive all future updates. Further products are released on a weekly basis. For problems, there’s a 24/7 support at your side. The templates were created and documented very well though, making it simple to use and customize them.
Via contact form or the live chat in the bottom right corner, you can ask questions prior to purchase. Payment is uncomplicated, and can be done via credit card or PayPal. A newsletter keeps you up to date, but you can also follow the typical social media channels, as there are Facebook and Twitter.
Discover the Blog
The blog is also worth checking out. From time to time, you’ll find giveaways on there, giving out licenenses for a product, for example. Informative articles are provided as well, explaining topics such as the difference between the free and pro versions, giving advice on website speed, as well as an overview of the prettiest admin templates of 2017.
WrapPixel is a rather new project on the market, and of course, the business wants to impress with quality. While there’s enough competition, WrapPixel can definitely keep up, providing tons of useful extras and great support. I recommend testing one of the free templates, as it can easily be turned into a pro version as it is.
This way, the free variant gets to prove its value in a live application, and the upgrade follows if needed. With their mostly flat, and user-friendly design, the Photoshop files of the free demos are very much worth trying. It can’t hurt to place this provider in your favorites to grab some additional freebies.
