Theme Trust Launches

By / Aug 23, 2010 / Updates

Just over 2 years ago, I left my full time job as a web designer to go freelance, and it’s been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. It’s been a wonderful ride up to this point, as I’ve been able to work on many exciting client projects and start several of my own ventures, one of which has become my full time job. With WDL being my main focus for the past year, I’ve had little time to do much design work. I miss designing and I miss providing clients with awesome websites. So, in an effort to fill this design void, I’ve started a small WordPress theme shop called Theme Trust, and today the doors are opening for business.

To celebrate the launch, we are offering a special promotion that gives you a 30% discount on any theme. Just enter the code “launch” at checkout to receive the discount. This special is only good for 1 week, and will expire on August 30, 2010.

Affiliate Program

Also, If you want to earn some extra cash and help us promote the themes, Theme Trust has an affiliate program that pays 30% on each sale.

    I like the themes you have.

    “Become a Theme Trust affiliate and you can earn 30% on every theme you sale. It’s a great way to earn some extra cash while promoting a great product.”

    Should be “theme you sell” not “theme you sale.”

      Thanks Kyle…for the feedback and finding the typo!

  • John

    Keep up the good work Henry :)

  • Craig

    Good Luck with the launch and congrats on your success thus far.

  • Alex

    Absolutely amazing themes!
    I did have one question. In ‘Leverage’, the search button on the Blog page is down below the search bar. Did you mean to put it there or is it supposed to be to the right of the search bar?

    Keep up the good work man!!

    • Henry

      Thanks so much for the kind words!

      Concerning the search button in Leverage, which browser are you using?

      • Alex

        Hi Henry,

        I’m using FireFox 3.6.8

        • Alex

          It looks like it does the same in IE as well. If you set the margin of the search input box to 5 instead of 10, I believe that will fix it.

          • Henry

            Thanks Alex. I’m not sure how I missed that, but I really appreciate you noticing it.

          • Alex

            No problem! Glad I could help :)

  • Vincent Klaiber

    Great new website, with a lovely design! Wish you the greatest success with this new project!

  • Liam McKay

    Congrats Henry, everything looks brilliant – as expected. All the best.

    • Henry

      Thanks Liam! That means a lot. :)

  • William

    Looks nice, but there’s a database connection! I wanted to see what you’ve got 😉 Keep up the good work.

    • William

      Its working now!

    How does this affiliate program work? Does it mean someone creates a theme and then sells it via themetrust?

    If so, would 30% not be an extremely low cut, if a theme builder is doing all the work? Not even Apple is that greedy.

    By the way, the service does look great.

  • Ferdy

    Please forget my previous comment. Most likely affiliate in this case means somebody promoting your service on their own website.

    The website looks awesome. Great project Henry. Good luck for it! :)

    The Pure theme is a really nice design. I’m soon to be a freelancer again after working for a company, so i’m going to have a go a designing a theme of my own.

  • Carlos

    I think these are fine themes, though maybe about a notch above some free ones we see on Smashing Magazine. Not yet to the level of RocketTheme.

    One issue I have with ‘Premium’ themes is that they give you a news page, maybe a contact page, and another page.

    Most of them are missing pages like archives, categories, author, etc. I’d like to see more theme desginers go the extra step and create these sub-pages.

    Still, I applaud and envy anyone who can go out on their own.
