2.0 out of 5 stars Not really ready to use designs 22 May 2010
By I. Crouse - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I really like the templates in the book, I was hoping that the CD will contain files that I'll be able to edit, resize etc and print out to use mainly for packaging gifts I give to my friends and family. The CD contains only jpg-s of the picture of the already put together template and on the right side is a picture of the template. Those can't really be modified like other packaging CD's I have gotten with other books. I was really disappointed about that.

3.0 out of 5 stars A few good designs, but not enough!! 4 Oct 2011
By World's Greatest Aunt - Published on Amazon.com

As other reviewers stated, the CD contains only jpg images. Essentially, the CD is nothing more than the book on disc - basically just the pages of the book scanned in - it is actually convenient if you like to be able to view your books on the computer. In order to be useful, one must vectorize the designs themselves. I guess the CD is better than nothing - at least I don't have to scan in any patterns that I want to use, I can just import the jpg into my software and vectorize from there.

This brings me to the more important point - there are few packaging designs that impressed me. Most are rectangular boxes of some sort with different perforations for opening - a lot of variations on the same theme. Technically, these square/rectangular boxes may all be different, having different flaps, closures and cut-outs, but still, they're just boxes. Furthermore, I know I've seen some of these in other books. There are a few unique designs that I really liked, but one of the reasons I bought the book was because of the package on the cover - and it wasn't even included in the book!!

Was this worth the purchase price?? Well, I bought it used for 5 bucks, so I'd definitely have to say yes. After all, there are several designs that I can use without making any changes ... all I have to do is import the jpg files, vectorize them and they'll be ready to die cut. However, had I paid the full price, I probably would have been disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars I feel conned 11 Sep 2013
By SimonVA - Published on Amazon.com
Comes with a CD-ROM for no reason.
The design templates are in no other than .jpg format, hence far from ready to use and experiment with. Might as well have said that the owner was free to scan the book and experiment and save the CD.
Furthermore, the packaging on the cover of the book is not even in the book.
By the way, same problem detected with Packaging Templates
