An Introduction To Finding and Using Squarespace Templates

If you’re about to create a website, you might already be familiar with more traditional website building services like WordPress, Wix, Weebly, and Showit. These services offer drag-and-drop page builders and easy-to-use templates that let you create your own websites without coding experience. However, if you’re looking for something different or are just wanting to try something else, you might want to consider Squarespace. Keep scrolling to learn how to use Squarespace templates.


When starting a blog, templates are used to create a foundation for your blog’s design. There’s no shortage of excellent themes and templates to choose from when using Squarespace, so picking the right one for your new website can be a bit of a challenge. There’s actually an entire section of Squarespace templates called “Starter Sites” that are meant to be customized just for you, but they make choosing your templates almost as difficult as you make your final decision. There are well-crafted templates that are effective for non-creatives. This means you can easily have a professional-looking website up in a matter of hours!
