Would be interested in seeing a lot more templates to pick from - maybe users can submit some?

@bentossell yes! great feedback! templates, and custom css are definitely on the distant road map. There are things I want to ship first: timeline for company events, a changelog for product updates, investor page (similar to the teams page now), a FAQs section, a pdf view. Thanks for checking it out!

@wnmio sweet Think about how people do product log/change logs and maybe there could be something cool there in PR form :)

@wnmio I'm with @bentossell on this one regarding custom css templates. As a founder, that press kit needs to have my entire branding on there. Would love to know your thinking around company events prioritizing higher than that.

@imcatnoone @bentossell Hey Cat, thanks for the feedback. I know that branding is an important factor, especially when it comes to PR. My thinking was, since you can upload a logo, customize the main color scheme and the rest of the press kit is very simple, you are still able to make the press kit look part of your brand. And I think if you look at a few examples, it holds true: http://locketapp.presskithero.com/ http://sealedmessenger.presskith... http://inapptics.presskithero.com/ http://teletextio.presskithero.com/ http://granular.presskithero.com/ http://campuscrate.presskithero.... http://article.presskithero.com/ They all look very professional, simple, yet the branding is still clear and visible. One other point I would like to make as well: I think this way is also preferable from the eyes of a reporter. A simple, maybe even familiar design, only slightly branded that just gets the information across. I think a press kit should not be viewed, and therefor not be designed as a marketing page. Journalists are the target viewer. Maybe @thejournalizer can chime in here with his opinion from the point of a journalist? On the other hand, I hear your concern. Its just a hard(er) problem to solve, hence it was planned for later until all the core features are solved.

This is pretty cool — I would definitely consider using a tool like this. Though perhaps add a few live examples in addition to the static screenshots?

@alexdbauer thanks for the feedback! Thats a good idea, I will add a link to a demo press kit...(probably the one of pied piper :))

This is a very good idea for helping entrepreneurs to start PR processes in a more structured way. Maybe it would be useful to add multiple languages support.

As a journalist who typically profiles startups, yes, please have some sort of press kit :)
