Skinpress Overview

The demand for WordPress themes has risen over the last few years. Many new studios have joined the industry in an attempt to respond to the needs of customers. Skinpress is one of the fast developing providers of WordPress themes. They have a wide selection of products and the number of their clients is constantly growing.

Theme Functionality

The Skinpress themes have all the standard widgets you can expect. The three-column layout makes the web pages convenient to use. The main focus of the themes is the interaction between the website users. All themes come with “popular posts” and “related posts” sections. Most of them have Twitter support and come with photo or video carousels.

Basically, their themes’ functionality is quite standard and they lack the wide variety of features found in other themes developed by the more popular providers such as Woothemes and Press75.

Theme Graphics

The WordPress themes from Skinpress have impressive and eye-catching header images. Still, they can be more artistic and colorful, like the headers of Templatelite and Elegantthemes, for instance. The colors of the themes are vivid. The main color can be blue, green, orange or pink. The fresh shades are soft which makes the contrast elegant and enjoyable.

The fonts are standard and have black color, so the readability of the Skinpress themes is very good. All elements on the pages are functionally arranged, but the pages seem a little bit too long and crowded.

Theme Pricing- base on July 2010 data

The premium WordPress themes from Skinpress cost $35 each. The price is reasonable for the quality offered and is cheaper than the products by Press75, for instance. If you want simpler layout which most of the bloggers would prefer, their free themes is the best option to go.

Theme Support

Skinpress do not offer a very good customer support service. There is not forum support. You can choose to send them emails or use the contact form on their official website to ask any questions. Still, there are complaints that the Skinpress staff is not replying to queries. Given all this, it can be safely said that these providers have very poor theme support. This is certainly a huge disadvantage, especially given the price they ask for a premium WordPress theme.

Overall, the WordPress themes from Skinpress are functional, attractive and moderately priced. Still, the poor customer support is a major drawback.

    I desperately needed to have a website up for my small business but I’m working on a budget.

    Imagine my relief to find Skinpress. The themes they have are still made with wonderful quality and they are FREE. Thanks Skinpress!

    Bought a premium theme from Skinpress and I’m left alone in the cold without so much as a match to work with.  No support whatsoever with Skinpress. I’m left in the dark with their theme.  Why God?

    I love the three column layout that Skinpress uses on their WP themes.  It’s all so convenient to use.  With functionality and creativity this good, why would you even go for something else? I know I won’t.

    A big chunk of my business relies on customer interaction and with Skinpress’ themes, that’s the main focus. 

    With the features like related posts and popular posts, it’s easy to provide for my website users’ needs.

    “You call this support?”

    Alright, they have no forum support.  I was thinking, I’m okay as long as I could contact them and contact them I did with their contact form.  Hi ho, as expected there was no reply.  Is anybody out there?

    The website I need for my business is something that’s pretty standard.

    I have no need for any fancy add-ons and skinpress have the best offering for what I want.

    The web pages are easy to customize and use. Very user-friendly!

    So far, so good. They have been patient in all of my queries and demands and I am very much happy with that. They offer great value for their services making it very affordable to the public, but don’t be expecting too much from their theme functions.

    Don’t get me wrong, they have all the standard tools that I need though they aren’t as sophisticated as compared to my previous WP theme provider but at a significantly higher cost.

    Their graphics are quite colorful and readable enough for my viewers so thank you Skinpress!
