The WordPress Themes I Use and Trust
Below is my hand selected list of Premium WordPress Theme providers that I trust both from a support and quality perspective. There are thousands of WordPress Premium Themes to choose from. It can be overwhelming. So let’s make it simple for you!
While even I can get my head turned by all the cool themes out there, I’ve found out the hard way to not go too far off the beaten path. I stick with the companies and developers that I’ve used for my own sites and that have already proven the test of time. Including the fact they will still be around after I put all the work into integrating their theme into my site.
You don’t want to find out what it is like to put all that time and effort into integrating a new theme only to discover down the road that the developer no longer updates their products. Or worse — has gone out of business.
If you are not familiar with how WordPress and WordPress themes integrate there are important considerations before you make your final decision. We should discuss the features, layout and structure of the theme to make sure it meets your site’s goals and your preferred setup.
First, be sure to read my article on How to Choose the Right WordPress Premium Theme so you are familiar with the important variables you need to consider when choosing your WordPress website’s theme.

Being themes are a downloadable product, as is standard and customary for downloadable products — all sales are final. That means you own the theme whether you end up using it or not.
I can personally guide you on what theme will not only visually meet your requirements but more importantly work the way you need it to so that your site is effective and successful. So let’s make sure you make the right choice before you spend your hard-earned dollars!
