We’ve compiled a collection of 91 templates for Google Docs, which is an online word processor included in Google Drive. It’s an excellent alternative to Microsoft Office, and as long as you have a Google account, you can access it for free.

This list includes useful and varied options, which range from letters to all sorts of work and educational documents, as well as designs for personal use.

Most of the templates here are designed by Google. In 2017, the company removed a large ecosystem of third-party templates. However, we’ve managed to recover some of them and have also added some recent ones created by other companies and individuals. Please note that we’ve focused only on templates for Google Docs and not for other Drive apps such as Google Sheets.

As you’ll see below, some of the included templates don't have a direct link. This is because, as they’re official templates, Google generates a personal link. To access them, you may need to look for them in the template gallery.

How to Edit Google Docs Templates

Google Docs Template

In this collection, you’ll find 3 types of templates. Some are already in edit mode and are automatically added to your Drive when you start working on them. Others open in a preview page, and to use them, you need to click the Use template button or use the Make a copy option at the top right of the screen, under the File menu.

Additionally, there are read-only templates. To use them, you need to create a copy–click on the File option in the top toolbar and select Create a copy from the drop-down menu. This will create a duplicate that you can edit in your own Google Drive.
