Resources: Tools of the trade
We use a variety of design resources in the production of our templates and freelance work. On this page you can find links to our favourite graphic design tools and resources and the services we recommend.

Photoshop brushes, patterns, 3D renders and more. DesignerCandies offer an incredible selection of free resources that are perfect for designing flyers. Along with being super high quality, all the resources at Dcandies are available for commercial use too!
DepositPhotos.com – Stock Photos & Vectors
DepositPhotos have become our go-to choice for high quality, low-priced stock images. Their huge library of photos and competitively priced image packs make them great value for money. We use DepositPhotos for most of the templates on FlyerHeroes – proof we only recommend the best!

How you present yourself and your work is key to your success. The ability to visualise how a design would look after being printed is a powerful tool that all flyer designers should take advantage of. The Infinity Bundle by OriginalMockups includes dozens of PSD mockup files for presenting your work like a pro!
