What is a PLR Template?

A PLR template is an important tool for bloggers and entrepreneurs who wish to save time and money creating printable products. It stands for Private Label Rights, which means you can take a purchased template of digital content and use it as your own. You may also hear these referred to as white label or commercial use products.

PLR templates are popular because they provide the building blocks needed to create printable products without having to start from scratch. This is one of the best secrets to save time and money creating products. Templates are an affordable solution to creating beautiful printables, even if you are not tech savvy!

These templates come in many different forms including ebooks, articles, blog posts, graphics, planners, worksheets, and more created by professional designers or writers.

You can customize them for your brand and audience to create a completely unique product.

How to Find and Choose a PLR Template to Create a Printable


If you are looking to create a printable but don’t have the time or resources to design it yourself, using a PLR template can be a great option. PLR stands for Private Label Rights and refers to digital products that are pre-made which you can purchase and customize as your own.

There are many different types of PLR templates available to create a printable, so how do you choose the right one?

When it comes time to choose the right PLR template for your project, there are a few things you should consider.

  • First, think about the type of printable you’re creating. This could include anything from greeting cards and invitations, worksheets and coloring pages, journals and planners, ebooks, workbooks, or even wall art. Once you know what type of design you need then it becomes much easier to narrow down your options from there.
  • Next, determine which template format will work best for your needs. Canva Templates you can customize and then download as a pdf or jpeg, Word document formats like .docx and .doc; PowerPoint formats like .pptx and .ppt; , etc.
  • Finally, Start shopping for the template type you need. You can find PLR Templates on marketplaces such as Etsy, or buy directly from a quality PLR Provider. This article details a list of trustworthy providers I recommend.
