    These footers are all fantastic! Can you purchase these footers for your website or are all of these custom designed and not for resale? Either way, it gives me many ideas for our client websites and even some great ideas when we redesign our own website. Thanks again for sharing this collection.

  • Interpix Design

    A lot of these are meh. The example from amuki blogspot is interesting but it’s also very busy. The title of Carsonified’s footer says it all: footers are boring stuff. It should probably stay that way.

  • Michael

    Wow! I am impressed. I will have to start paying more attention to the footer.
    Usually I only go there when I can’t find what I am looking for higher in the page.

  • geoklix

    great article, great list.

    Thank you!

  • Rune

    I just launched this site with a creative hand-drawn style.

    The footer fetches a twitter stream an is styled using @font-face.

    Not sure if it is OK to plug my own site so blatantly here lol. Just delete my post, if so.
    Great list btw.

    Really strong use of customisation to make the footers stand out from the standard boring 1 line T&C we all see too often.

    Great finds!

  • iraq website
