More Top Typewriter Text Templates From Envato Elements

One of the special things about Envato Elements is that you can download as many templates as you want, as often as you want, for one low monthly or yearly fee. So if our featured template isn't quite what you need, here are some great alternatives you can try instead.

  • Typewriter Opener | AE  is a great choice when you need an opener that offers typewriter text. The template offers three versions, and all the scenes have different animations.
  • When you need an energetic typewriter text intro, look no further than Typewriter Stomp Intro. Pair it with some great upbeat music and hook your audience from the opening of your video. 
  • Is "futuristic and grunge" your aesthetic? Glitch Auto Generation and Typing offers the typewriter text feature you're looking for, but it's also added a pixelated quality to the font and plenty of glitch effects. 
  • Typewriter Pro doesn't offer that iconic typewriter text, but it does offer the action of the type moving across the page, and you can change the font to any typewriter font to complete the retro look if you want to. 
  • Looking for something a bit different? Try Lyric Video and Voice Over Template. It picks up the sound you use in your video and synchronises it with the typewriter text on the screen. How cool is that?
