Default templates vs hand folding

I have been doing bows for a while now and am pretty good at folding them. I have always done all of them by hand and they look great. I have just gained my first wholesale account though. If I used templates, would things go faster? Is it just going to be another thing to hold in my hand while I'm folding the bows that I'm basically folding around or would it make me quick as lightning?
I want to make money and get several more stores, but I don't want to abandon my four children for constant hairbows either.

I always hand fold mine, but I am considering investing in some templates with my tax refund... I'd like to know if its faster also.

I have the NBNG templates and I can do several bows in a row, lickity split. I haven't timed my self, but I've tried free hand folding and I totally failed at it. I had to keep starting over, my loops were all wonky and I just was frustrated. Now, I enjoy making bows and I can get them done fairly quickly. I wish I had the talent to free hand, but alas I don't.

I hand fold quicker than anything. I can get a twisted done in no time.

Does NBNG show you what sizes each bow should be? Is that what it means by template? Or what? I'm confused at what they are showing me here? Reluctant to buy them as I spent 25 bucks on instructions last July only to now NOT be happy with them and basically use only free instructions and trial and error. LMK, pleaes

The book has a chart that shows finished bow size, template size to use, ribbon length and what size ribbon that bow looks best with. The templates are actual templates and are very sturdy: http://nobownogo.com/category_22/TNT...-Templates.htm You won't regret investing in the templates. For the twisted bow the templates only help you with even loops, but she has great instructions in the book on how to actually twist your bow. It took me a few tries to actually get the twisted to look like I wanted it, but now I'm very satisfied with how they look. Hope this helps.
