Paper Direct has a library of more than 1,500 templates, available only when you purchase a Paper Direct paper product. Paper Direct's customer service department confirms that the CD collection is no longer for sale, but the certificate and clickbook CDs are available on the website.

Tips and warnings
- Paper Direct has not updated information about the CD on its website. A call to customer service in January, 1, 2011 confirms that Paper Direct no longer offers its template library on CD, but you can purchase the certificate template library and the clickbook library on CD. Other templates are only available with a Paper Direct paper purchase and the additional cost for the template ranges from free to £1.90.
