DelliStore: A Free Professional CSS/XHTML/PSD-Template

Over the last months we’ve heard numerous complaints about the lack of quality in our freebie releases. We are aware that our readers have high expectations and we try to do our best to meet them in our posts. In this post we release a beautiful high-quality (X)HTML/CSS-template (including its PSD-source) that will hopefully meet your expectations and come in handy in your projects.

DelliStore Template Link

This template, designed by the design agency Dellustrations and released especially for Smashing Magazine and its readers, is a full px-based, cross-browser-compliant (X)HTML/CSS-template (IE 6, IE 7, Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome). It consists of 4 custom pages; the PSD-source is included in the release package. You may modify this template for a e-commerce web site, restaurant, pool and spa web-sites and other caters, ventures and facilities.


As always, the template is completely free and may be used for any private or commercial project without any restrictions whatsoever.

    nice one… why is there no more of all above option ?

    (SM) Because that option wouldn’t make any sense.

    Looking nice if you have a restaurant. Strange is that the template on their own page still costs 29,99 $ ???

    “…designed by the design agency Dellustrations especially for Smashing Magazine and its readers…”? Hm… As someone stated before: They sold it on their site long before releasing it here and it´s still there…

    (SM) The release pack was sent to us 4 months ago, but it was released only now.

  12. 13

    Thanks SM for the amazing release ! appreciate it a lot : )

    thanks :)) … nice one

    this looks forced and oversized, just as one of previous WP themes.
    though, I agree, more templates are more than welcome, just not in this style.

  19. 20

    Looks great, i was thinking about doing a template very similar to this

    Nice template, its should come handy somehow. It could always be useful somehow even if you’re not going to design a deli, restaurant website. Just modify it and use your imagination instead of complaining for god sakes. It’s free!

  23. 24

    typo on the services page…don’t think you necessarily want everyone to ‘sing up!’ ;)

    Awesome freebie. Not really sure why people have complained about quality, though. All SM free releases have been great.

  25. 26

    I like learning how to do things. So, more articles please.

    Maybe a little Gimp, too :-)

    How about less of those 50 or 100 or 25 or 10 or 1293 things you must do or see or whatever type web pages ;-)

  26. 27

    I find it hard to believe why people would complain about free stuff. IT’S FREE. Let these arseholes spend a lot of time creating something and have people complain about it.

    Thanks for the freebit!

  27. 28

    It took me 10 minutes to realize that this is not a two story building.
    The loading of the site will most likely be slow with all those pictures, but i can see how it might be usefully in some cases.

    What’s with smashing magazine and all the free templates? Aren’t the use of templates very self defeating in the design world. We shouldn’t rely on creating website designs as cookie cutters for those too lazy to create something unique or hire a designer…this is problematic and I see more and more people thinking it’s okay to use this stuff for their businesses instead of creating unique content. I love smashing magazine, I think you guys have great articles for the most part, but what’s next… logo templates? Dear god please stop with the website templates.

    I think people should stop complaining a bit ;)

    They’re free templates, so I’m already happy enough that someone is willing to put time into making something that looks better than average for us. Most free templates look like absolute (excuse the language) poo, so this is a welcome improvement.

    Besides that, you can’t really make everyone happy all the time, as some templates appeal to other people than yourself.

    Keep up the good work SM :)

    p.s.: I do believe that visitors are expecting a high quality output from SM, wether it’s templates, articles or other things. As long as SM looks after that level of quality I think we’ll be fine :)

    Thanks for the template! Nice 1

    Very Nice Themes
    Thank For Share :)

  40. 42

    Good looking theme! A couple of the id names are implying presenation a bit too much though (leftcol, rightcol). Lables should also be associated with their respecitve inputs. Would also have liked to see skip links as well. Enough of the complaining :)

  41. 43

    Thanks for this free template. The PSD-File and the comments inside are very interesting.

    As somebody who doesn’t make PSD mock-ups in his sleep and is interested in seeing articles about all aspects of web development – thanks for a well commented and fully sliced, cross-browser compatible PSD.

    The PSD doesn’t seem to be sliced at all?

    This is gorgeous, thanks so much for sharing!

    A nice looking CSS/XHTML/PSD Template. I would like to see it more in the future, also EE or MT themes.

    Yea it was broken for me but after trying again it worked.

  47. 49

    this is fantastic. thanks so much SM. as well as a beautiful template, it’s very handy for a hands-on learning tool. pick it apart, see how things are done (PSD, CSS, etc).

    it boggles me that some complain, or offer the “no use to me…” comments. beat it h8rs… your comments only waste time. yours, and ours.

    keep up the great work SM, it’s VERY appreciated!

    to Justin Woods (May 2nd, 2009, 5:39 pm) – Listen idiot, it is not God posting this website templates, but people, normal human beings, earthlings. And, it is for free. Keep the name of the Lord out of it. And show us something usefull like this template being made by yourself.

    Nice. Slices is missing?

    To Dave (May 9th, 2009, 3:44 am)

    Are you fucking retarded?
    Read the post by the guy you responded to a few extra times and see the fucking irony of your comment when you say “And show us something usefull like this template being made by yourself.”

    The whole point of his post was that giving away free designs isn’t helping the design/development-community as a whole.


  59. 61

    Incredible theme, definitely one to save, thanks a lot Smashing Magazine!

  60. 62

    I don’t understand what people are supposed to do with these. Why would anyone use a design someone else made knowing that there are going to be hundreds of duplicates that look exactly the same? Especially when the subject matter is so specific like this theme.

    I could see this being useful if it showed the process of creating the artwork in Photoshop.

  61. 63

    wow! thanks

  62. 64

    Incredible! Nice for my preschool site, but alas (or is it me) it’s not Internet Exporer proof.. or am I doing something wrong? is the site and in firefox it looks great, but IE (6) isn’t PNG proof.

    Gorgeous template though and thanks for sharing!

  63. 65

    wooooooooooow beutiful

  64. 66

    I have problem with IE 8!

    Firstly: little schmuck – Justin Woods (May 2nd, 2009, 5:39 pm)
    Stop crying to God about your problems regarding your
    Webdesign business feeling threatened by Smashing
    Magazine’s awesome work that they provide.

    Lastly: pondscum – Ludvig (June 24th, 2009, 10:30 pm)
    Go wash your mouth out with soap and please,
    don’t kiss anyone with your mouth, it’s so filthy.
    Oh and if you feel as threatened as justin woods
    is about your business too, then it’s time to pick
    up the pace in your work abilities, isn’t it?

  66. 68

    Its amazing

  67. 69

    great job

  68. 70

    I think it looks fabulous, and great quality for a freebie. Don’t want free templates/don’t like it – then don’t use it, and let the rest of us enjoy ;-)

    @Addy – great use! (and looks fine in Chrome btw).

  69. 71

    KooL ! I’m using it right now ! Who would have thought !
    Thanks A Bunch !

    I’m a bit late to this party but wanted to comment anyway.

    I can’t understand the amount of negative comments here.
    If you don’t like it, don’t use it.

    Mainly though I wanted to say thanks to SM for sharing a
    great looking FREE to use template, it’s much appreciated.

    I think one of the best ways to set up a site is with some psd web templates. PSD is the best out there, it’s only natural that you’d use it to design your site.
