Below are some customer testimonials on their experience with iThemes premium WP themes:
“I’m so happy that I found iThemes! I’ve been searching for themes to use for myself and for my students. What I love about iThemes is the fact that they have tutorials, demos, and an active forum to help me build my wordpress website. Plus, the themes are beautiful! and can work for me in so many different types of websites. I’m a Theme Club member and love it! Thanks so much iThemes for finally giving me the kind of themes and support I need with WordPress!” -Christina Hills, WebsiteCreationWorkshop.com
What nice things CAN’T I say about iThemes Builder? As a business owner, I can’t always be “in control” of every project leaving our office. But with iThemes sites, I have the comfort and ability to make changes on the fly with ease. Support has been great and there are always new themes from which to choose and build upon. During this recent election season when so many politicians needed sites in a hurry, iThemes was indispensable. Thanks for making a product that is worth every cent!

What’s not to like about Builder? I love everything about it! Lot’s of child themes available which give you a great place to start, and the style manager gives you an easy way to make each page unique. I highly recommend Builder to anyone wanting a super simple, flexible and easy to use WordPress theme. –Rona Newby
Builder makes me feel like a web geek, except I know nothing about code. It’s truly a powerful set of simple tools for the everyday person to get on and market their information or product to the world. We have a cartoon here in the UK called “Bob the Builder” and the slogan goes – “Can he make it, Yes he can! ” I feel this is totally appropriate for iThemes Builder as well.

Builder has changed the way we approach developing websites for our clients. We previously used Thesis and thought we had the best possible solution. Boy we were wrong. It is really hard to pick our favorite feature. Extensions, child themes, and amazing easy CSS management are just some of our favorites. Keep up the good work!

I have been designing sites for clients for almost 10 years and I use to code everything by hand. As you can guess, this took a lot of time and was not too good when a customer wanted a big change in the layout or wanted me to add some special features to a site. Over 2 years ago for a period of one year, I designed sites using Joomla but stopped because it was too complicated for my customer to operate. I then took a look at WordPress but I was lazy and I did not want to learn how to code a WordPress template from scratch. I did try most WordPress templates systems but they all have some limitations and then I discovered Builder. WOW! What an eye opener. Now, I can’t believe I hand coded all those years. With Builder, I can now build sites the right way. I start by building the functional aspect of the site with all the bells and whistles the clients want. I can move stuff around, add widgets and functionality then I can simply code the CSS for the final look. Hey, if the customer wants to change the structure of the site, no problem, a little Builder magic and it’s done! On top of Builder, the iThemes teams is simply awesome and the support is A+. With iThemes and Builder you also get a complete set of child themes that you can modify and you can spice up the site with the amazing set of plugins offered by iThemes. One thing that was also very important for me selecting Builder and the whole set of plugins of iThemes was the speed at which they fix bugs, issue updates and add new features. On that count, iThemes is second to none. If you are serious about building real useful and functional WordPress sites, Builder is your solutions, there’s no doubt about that! Builder is the strongest solution out there, period!

I love the Builder theme, it allows me the creativity I desire without having to be a coding expert. I’ve used it so far in designing a couple client sites and it’s great to be able to envision what I want and then use Builder’s flexible layout tools to make my vision come true. Also the great selection of child themes gives you a head start if you’re in a hurry. Thanks iThemes for making website building so easy! –Will Brown, Indigo Skies Design Studio, http://www.indigoskiesllc.com
I have actually used ithemes for years now starting with the bchurch theme. I have always loved your themes. However, I was not on the design side and having not started a business yet I just loved it for the cool look and them being well coded. So, I had continued using the theme including Life and so on. However, once I started designing and Builder came along I was blown away. I was always intimidated by design because I was not as proficient in code as I thought I needed to be. When Builder came along it took away all of those fears. I have since gotten pretty familiar with Builder and its ease of use. I have been able to build sites that I love and that my clients love. On top of its ease etc., with the newest release of Builder things are just getting better. For someone who has always considered a novice Builder has helped me feel like I can get some really cool stuff done in web design. Most important, it allows me to bring extra income into the house for my family. Thanks Builder! –Dion Evans, http://www.dionevanslive.com
Just a short note to say thank you so much to the iThemes.com team for Builder it really has increased my income online. I have been building blogs for a few years, only using free themes with very little “Uniqueness” to my sites. Mostly because I didn’t know how to build sites that were better. I have the ideas, but didn’t know how to produce my vision. With Builder, the sky is the limit on what I can design. It really is simple, and the online community is there to help if I do have a question. So thank you so much for this perfect tool, that really is worth many times the price based on my increased income. A truly great investment. –Bill Ivey, WI Info Products
What can I say? After months of trying to figure out how to build a website, I discovered Builder. I know that it is especially wonderful for designers and those creating multiple sites, but it was a Godsend for me. My resources were short and I needed to figure it our on my own. The tutorials, the forums, the support was terrific and I now have a site that WORKS! No code to write, amazing flexibility, complex enough to do what I want but simple enough that I, a total website novice, could figure it out …….and I can manage it myself!! It is SO worth every penny. And thanks for having a version that we little guys can afford. Love you ithemes.
–Bonnie Burtraw, http://www.TradeFatForLife.com
I am 50 years old and don’t know much about creating a website. Plus, I am completely new to WordPress. Finding someone who could teach me what I need to know about WordPress and provide an awesome website creation tool was gold! My grand kids love to make towers using building blocks. If you’ve ever done this, iTheme’s Builder makes it easy to set up your own website. Much more flexible than I thought it would be. I’ll be making several sites now. Super support from the iTheme’s team! –Ron Moffitt, http://www.ilovewordsearchpuzzles.com
My company Jebaire Publishing is a small independent book publisher. Tight budgets preclude us from hiring big fancy website builders to create sites for our authors. I am so glad that I ran across Builder. I’m not tech savvy by any stretch of the imagination but with builder I’ve been able to create sites for our authors that look nice, have some depth, and just plain work. I’m enjoying the process so much that I think I’ll just keep learning with Builder and continue to save my company money. –Shannon Clark, Jebaire Publishing, LLC, http://www.jebairepublishing.com
Builder has been a life saver. I struggled with edits and was forced to use canned designs which always came out..canned. Builder has allowed me design freedom and made it easy to provide user maintainable websites for clients. Builder is easy to learn and very well supported via online forums. My Builder success led me to also get the Backup Buddy and it is flawless as well… Keep up the great work ithemes!! –Glen Stadig, http://come2community.org/2011/
Since I discovered Builder, I have been integrating it into all of my client work. No longer do I need wireframes; With Builder and the Style Manager, I can do live layouts much quicker. Then, I don’t have to re-do a bunch of work when the client approves. I can polish up the live layout, plug in the content and go. Thank You For Builder!
–Dave Gammage, YourOwnWeb Consulting, http://www.YourOwnWeb.com
iThemes Builder has become my ‘secret weapon’ as a WordPress website developer. It’s easy to use, with incredible support. The iThemes team is constantly working to make Builder the best theme framework in the world. When I first got it, it was outstanding. They’ve since added new features (like widget content and duplicate widget) that have made it phenomenal! Builder is easily one of the best investments I’ve made in my web design business!
–Valerie Cudnik, CDG Marketing & Web Design, http://cdgtraining.ithemes.com
This past spring I bought a subscription to Builder at ithemes. The main purpose of buying the themes was to give variety, not only to my sites, but for my clients as well. This company has made it easy to do upgrades when needed and they keep on coming out with new themes and modifying old ones based on customers comments. I look forward to continuing our relationship.

Last year I started my own Administrative Consultant business and paid someone to do a website for me. While the site wasn’t bad, I got tired of having to put in help tickets every time I wanted to update something..and then waiting days for it to get done. Someone told me about WordPress so I decided to take a course. The person teaching the course used “Builder” as their theme in the course and said that’s pretty much all she uses now. Because of the Style Manager, it has so much flexibility and is great for non-techies like me who aren’t familiar with code. I enjoyed using it so much that I now design and build sites for clients as part of my service offerings. And you can’t beat the great support from the iThemes team!

Builder has streamlined my WordPress customization! Builder has taken days of programming into literally minutes. In the long run, I am saving tons of cash! Thank you Builder!
–Philip Kohn, http://www.mxcomputersolutions.com
I have been using the Builder theme for about three months now and I love it; it is worth every penny (probably more)! Builder has what I have always looked for in a theme: flexibility, lots of child themes to choose from, easy to use without knowing a lot of code, and good support. Since I have rolled out Builder to my site (www.WindowsTalk.org), visitors have increased (and stayed!), however blog comments have greatly increased and so have affiliate sales, most likely due to its clean professional look. If I have any questions, whether they be simple theme tweaks, or some other problem, the fine folks at the iThemes support forum are quick to solve it, and even add it to the Builder Wiki, which has happened to me twice. That is most reassuring; to know that support is available when you need it. I would recommend Builder to anyone considering a theme change!
–James M. Fisher, http://www.WindowsTalk.org
I wanted to thank you; my client is very picky, but loves the way her site is turning out. Thanks for a great, professional theme! I hope your business is very successful, and I will definitely purchase more of your themes in the future. –John H.
You guys have this working so well. I’m so happy I bought this theme, Essence, as all the resources that one could want are right here at my fingertips. I haven’t had ANY earth shattering problems that couldn’t be fixed in a few minutes of looking for the right answers or questions that weren’t responded to promptly. Just an awesome job, guys!
Response time? Most other places don’t even provide a shred of support. You guys have are on this like white or brown, as it were, on rice! I don’t mean to gush but for the price of your themes, the quality and the support, it’s got one of the best values on the interweb. Not to mention the community here helps others with questions, provides solutions for common needs and problems. You’ve just hit a homer here. It’s very impressive. –Rob Saxe
I bought the Brochure template pack this morning and I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you. Thanks not only for providing an excellent quality product but also for making it available at such an outstanding price. I’m absolutely delighted with every aspect of dealing with iThemes from start to finish. I got my site up and running very quickly and then wanted to make a change which I couldn’t figure out. I looked around the support forum and in spite of my best efforts I couldn’t spot the answer. I posted a request for help and expected a response in a day or so. Within 15 minutes Jesse had a reply up there which hit the spot directly! As we say here in Yorkshire I’m “chuffed to bits.” –Nigel G.
Thank you for your AMAZING customer service. I really do appreciate this. I will tell everyone about your product and how great you all are with helping your clients. Thanks for not only having a great product but having great customer service. I will check with Godaddy and see how to resolve this issue. Thanks again. –Troy
“Check out my new store using your Ecommerce template (www.lethiaowens.com/store). I couldn’t have done this without iThemes. As a web developer I know it would have taken me at least 60+ hours to code this site manually but I had it up and running with only 15 hours of coding and product setup. Yeah!” –Lethia O.
“I would just like to say that I am VERY happy with your themes. They are well developed, professional looking, and meet my needs. I looked a long time through all the different free themes, and although some of them are nice looking, they are basically just a blog. I wanted something a bit unique, where I could showcase products or pictures, evaluate products in a review site, and also do all of this without having to build it myself. The other premium (pay) themes by other companies range from ok to good, but I think that yours are great. Plus, your video tutorials and forum make it very easy to get help and ask questions. These last two points are what convinced me to buy Essence and iCompany. I am using both now and am very happy. In the next month or so I plan to buy one of the photo gallery themes too. For any person considering the purchase of these themes, you really should do it. After 8 months of looking through thousands of wordpress themes, I think the iThemes are the best. If you want to see what iCompany looks like in action (and not look at the test drive model), my site is http://webinarinsights.com. Thanks iThemes team! –Don C.
“I needed an easy to edit professional looking template that a non-web savy user could use for a charity/awareness/donation site – www.TrevorsGift.com. With the iCompany theme, we got just that. We now have a professional trustworthy site that will potentially help save lives. Thank you!” –-Lance B.
“A smart website strategy starts first and foremost with site design. People return to great-looking sites. The DeepOrder series gave us the look we wanted. Well-crafted, these themes are winners straight out of the box. Within 10 days of a NEW site launch, we were hitting page 1 of Google. SEO-friendly? Absolutely. Our 2nd use for DeepOrder was (we thought) more challenging. To re-launch an older site that had not performed well for over a year. In less than a week of switching to the new theme, our RSS subscriber count jumped from under 10 to 145! Pageviews went from virtually nothing (under 20 a day) to over 5,000 per week. And still growing. In our book, Cory and the team at iThemes have come up with a definite winner. Your toughest decision may be to decide which of their gorgeous theme series to buy. –Joe Stallard
“Your themes rock! Before I’ve had to make things in Photoshop and send them to a programmer to code the html for the website, but now I can do it all myself. Good stuff.” –Steve C
“As a professional writer, I wanted a theme that stood out in three major areas – professional appearance, flexible design, and a wide range of features. My site has a lot of static content – such as descriptions and cover art for the books I’ve previously published – but it also has a lot of fluid content as well, from blog posts to featured excerpts to current podcast episodes. The iCompany theme gave me the best of both worlds – static pages combined with a full featured blog, both of which were widget ready to allow me to make changes easily and to highlight whatever specific content I select. The crisp, clean lines of the design gave me the professional appearance I needed to showcase my writing and the use of WordPress as a platform made it exceptionally easy to implement and update.” –Joe Nassise
