[colored_box color=”blue”]1. Magazine3[/colored_box]
Magazine3 may have come into being only a couple of years ago (on December 12th 2010), but since then they have grown into one of the most trusted WordPress theme resources online. Their plan was to release at least 2 high-quality themes on a monthly basis, but unlike other theme providers they wished to provide clients with “next level” themes compared to the other regular premium themes. This is exactly the reason why all the themes were created with great care, therefore, they use modern technologies like HTML5, CSS3, impeccable coding practices and responsive design layouts. Furthermore, for the tech enthusiast, the themes are highly customizable, in order to enhance the visitor’s experience and create one-of-a-kind websites.

Customer support is extremely important, especially considering that theme design is quite complicated, and minor problems can easily appear. All themes come with lifetime support and updates, and an attached PSD logo file. For even more information you will also acquire documentation and tutorials. Support is usually offered via Helpdesk for members. It can be found in the Helpdesk area via ticket system. Magazine3 states that they will help clients with all problems related to theme development, and you can also contact them on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Price and Planning:
As you can see, there are four different pricing plans, which are actually quite reasonable considering the incredible features that these themes contain. The cheapest pricing plan, which includes lifetime support and updates, documentation, the Logo PSD file and single site usage (1 domain allowed) might not be the best choice for a company, but the 129$ plan includes multiple usage on unlimited number of sites, which is actually great.

Theme junkie was released in 2009, and it is one of the best WordPress theme providers in the world. The company has become very proficient in the past four years, and they are constantly upgrading their themes, or releasing new user-friendly, awesome-looking and very efficient WordPress themes. If there is any distinctive trait customers might like about Theme Junkie is the affordable prices and the friendly customer support. Theme Junkie is the perfect choice for webmasters who are trying to save money on their startups, or simply looking for an affordable solution for a professional website. All themes are licensed under GP, which means that they are in full compliance with W3C standards.
Theme-Junkie, being relatively new to the industry, has one of the most advanced theme control panels. In here, you can auto resize your thumbnails for easier management, you can switch your preferred logo in text or image format, and you are able to easily post advertisements on your blog site with a fully widgeted sidebar function.
All of their themes are equipped with FeedBurner, they have an analytic stat manager and threaded comments. But it is not only webmasters that will enjoy Theme junkie, because from the user’s point of view, the drop-down menu and overall design will be very appealing. As far as graphics are concerned, they offer simple, elegant models. They offer thirteen classical themes, but we must remember that they are still new in the industry. Over time they will probably create better themes (some of them have already been released and we will show them to u soon).
Pricing and Plans
One of the best things about Theme Junkie is its unparalleled support. They do not only provide with WP theme support for clients. They also share important information that their customers may need to set up their websites. Subjects include affiliate marketing, web hosting etc. You can post your questions on the forums, the online board and the announcement board for customers.

ThemeForest is a project powered by Envato, an online company which was designed to aid entrepreneurs and business people who are trying to make a name for themselves online. In many ways, it is like an online library filled with themes, plugins and skins for your website. The entire staff and creative department is dedicated to creating “high-quality” products and services. At the moment, ThemeForest hosts approximately 12.000 themes and site templates for HTML, Email, WordPress, PSD, Joomla and Magento.
There are other projects in the Envato company, but we will not discuss them. There have also been several negative reviews and comments in regards to the Theme Forest project, and it seems that some of them were founded. Nevertheless, considering that so many themes have been added over time it is only natural that low-quality ones also got through.
Theme Functionality and Graphics:
As far as theme functionality goes, Theme Forest is home to some truly wonderful WP themes. So if you are looking for awesome themes, you have come to the right place. Sadly, there are also some crappy themes, and you should pay extra attention to what you are downloading (we recommend checking ratings and reviews). On the other hand, many users have failed to correctly install certain themes, and from here their complaints were born. In case you were wondering about the approval request for themes, we will put your mind at ease: it is difficult to have a theme accepted:
Before any file is listed on ThemeForest, it is reviewed extensively by the Envato review team. Known in the past to be very strict on what they allow, it is not uncommon for authors to have their first submission denied (Source: ThemeGrade)
Considering that you have over 2.60o different WordPress Themes to choose from, it is safe to say that you can definitely find the perfect one for your business. There are themes for all major categories, such as blog, magazine, corporate, retail, technology, entertainment, responsive, html5, eCommerce and many more.
Let’s take a look at the best rated Themes:
[highlight color=”black”] Reader Stylish Magazine WP Theme – 55$ [/highlight]
[highlight color=”black”] Simple Mag – 45$ [/highlight]
[highlight color=”black”] LondonPress – Responsive Blog Magazine – 45$ [/highlight]
[highlight color=”black”] MediaEdge – Media Template – 17$ [/highlight]

The customer service support may work 24/7, but their services are not nearly the best. The problem is that support of individual Themes is not handled by ThemeForest’s staff, and this means that they might not be able to really help you. Nevertheless, there is a discussion section where you can post your queries.
Personally, I consider Elegant Themes the best place to find the freshest, cleanest, most beautiful WP Themes. From my knowledge, they were all designed by its founder, Nick Roach, a passionate web designer who started his career when he was in the seventh grade. At the moment he owns over 85 beautiful themes that you can use for business, blogs, and many more. Considering that Elegant Themes has such a large client base, and there are so many positive reviews online, it is safe to say that the quality of themes is top notch. Nick usually releases 1-2 themes that meet all WP criteria every week.
Much like the Thesis framework, the EP themes offer a myriad of controls and options that even the most inexperienced WP user can understand. The quality of designs and the incredible prices make Elegant Themes one of the most popular websites selling best Premium WordPress Themes. Let’s take a look at our top 10 Premium Themes:
[highlight color=”black”] Divi WordPress Theme [/highlight]
The Divi Builder was made with user experience at the forefront of its priorities. The way it is broken up into sections, rows, columns and widgets, really allows you to understand and edit the structure of your page. Your editing controls are pulled out of the main content area so that you get a clear and concise representation of how your modules fit into your page layout.

Unlike other sites where you have to pay 200-300-400 dollars per year for a subscription, on Elegant Themes you will only have to pay one early fee of 39$ for all the themes.
InkThemes focuses on ready-to-use WordPress themes, and it was designed to make launching your new site, or changing to the perfect theme easy. InkThemes focuses on business websites and professional-style themes, which means that most skins are super simple, clean and visually appealing. One thing we don’t enjoy about this site is the fact that they do not offer many possibilities for responsive design websites, which means that you will be losing important mobile traffic.
Here are our Favorite Themes by InkThemes:
