*Exactly* - your above comment, taken in context with the original
post I was replying to, highlights exactly what I said: that for some
the likes of Template Monster can sometimes work out cheaper than
actually designing it. I've never used a Template Monster design for a
client, only for personal projects, but that is because my clients are
actual designers and it's their job to do that pesky Photoshop stuff

Heh, nice.. for most of us though our limit is a little lower than
$1000 - but I see his point.
