If you want to up your Instagram game, you've got to post the most polished and eye-catching images you can. One of the best ways to do that consistently without spending tons of time and money on photoshoots is to use Instagram templates.
Today, we showcase 30 gorgeous and 100% FREE templates for Instagram from Placeit.
What Is Placeit?
Placeit is an online design generator that makes professional branding, promotion and marketing tools accessible to everyone. It provides both design novices and those with more experience with high-quality designs, logos, videos and mockups that they can customise online and download in a matter of minutes. This means that you can design all your branding and marketing materials directly from your browser, without needing complicated software.
Placeit is designed to suit a range of budgets, so you can sign up for either a low monthly or a yearly plan that will give you access to unlimited design resources. If you're on a strict budget and can only afford to buy one digital resource at a time, rather than use the monthly or yearly plan, you can create the resource you want and pay a small fee to download just that resource.
Not only does Placeit offer premium resources at bargain prices, it also gives away tons of awesome FREE resources every month. That's what we're looking at in this article.
