More Choices With More Premium Themes

There’s only one thing more exciting than an amazing new WordPress theme available for your site and that’s even more amazing new WordPress themes. With that in mind, I’m excited to announce that today we have three new Premium Themes ready for you! Each one features custom support direct from the theme providers themselves and, of course, stunning designs and cool features. Let’s get right to them and check them out.

First of all, we’re happy to introduce a beautiful and fresh new theme from popular theme provider, StudioPress. It’s called, Pretty Young Thing, and I think you’ll find that it lives up to its name. Underneath the pretty surface is StudioPress’ customizable Genesis framework. It’s available now for the one-time price of $75.

The Pretty Young Thing Theme

The Pretty Young Thing Theme

From WooThemes, designers of the Headlines theme, comes the appropriately named, Crisp. A handsome and sharp-looking theme designed specifically for Tumblelogging. To do that it takes advantage of eight of our new special Post Formats, giving you special styles for Image, Link, Quote, Video, Audio, Aside, Gallery, and Status posts. It’s available now for the one-time price of $45.

The Crisp Theme

And last, but certainly not least, from The Theme Foundry, who brought you Shelf, comes the Traction theme. Traction is a richly-designed magazine theme with a featured post slider, multiple color schemes, and even more features! It’s available now for the one-time price of $68.

The Traction Theme

While you’re previewing any one of these themes on the theme showcase check out the sidebar. If you love a premium theme you can purchase and activate it right from the showcase page! (In fact, you can activate any theme from the showcase — premium or free — if you’re logged in. Check it out!)

More fantastic and amazing new themes — premium and free — are, as always, on the way. We hope you’re as excited about them as we are. Let us know what you think!

    I always loved StudioPress themes. I was just wondering lately, why it was not available on WP.com, when others have already made it!

    But, I would be the last one to use Pretty Young Thing, because it is most likely to be liked only by female bloggers. ;-)

    Beautiful themes. But I’d rather buy Black Ops than a theme like this. It’s totally not worth it.

    So can we also edit the theme if we have a CSS upgrade? I’m trying to learn all about that stuff and love the PYT theme but some of the hearts are way too much … just curious.

    I REALLY like the Pretty Young Thing blog. Love the layout and love the color options. It is very “me.” Except for all the hearts. Is there an option to remove the hearts (at least the ones next to each post title)?

    @ Sara and Bobbie – like Ian said, the hearts can easily be removed through custom CSS. In fact, you can replace with your own icons as well. Along with the purchase of Pretty Young Thing (or any other premium theme on WP.com) is access to support – where we can help you with the custom CSS changes that would be needed to remove/replace the hearts.

    Incredible new choices. Pretty Young Thing is far too pretty — and young — and happy for me, but Traction (minus the blue) may be an option — bold and solid.

    I really like the crisp theme but I do think it is too expensive for a regular blog. Perhaps the price should be a bit more flexible so small unimportant bloggers like me can have these nice themes as well.

    I love Pretty Young Thing but it’s just out of my budget at the moment. If you offered discounts for WP old-timers like me ;3 or bundled it with a CSS upgrade I think I’d be more likely to shell out the 75 bones … but without that, I can’t tweak it, removed ads, or get a custom domain without shelling out ever-increasing piles of cash. Really love it though, it’s very tempting, especially with the grid layout (exactly what I want) and swappable color schemes! Swoon!

    Really looking good! So far the only thing that is keeping me from seriously considering the premium themes is price. I realize this is a one-time purchase, and one that comes with an extra special support option, but even so it’s pretty much outside my budget. But, keep them coming!

    The wonderful about thing about the premium themes is that the fonts are well-chosen and large enough to be readable. For most of the free themes, especially the ones with good graphics, the fonts are annoyingly tiny or just annoyingly gray.

    None of these premium templates would fit my blog but I’d pay $100 to have someone design a template just for me :D (that other WordPress users could use, too, of course).

    The new themes look great and I might consider using one…. Would it be possible to trial a theme before buying? If your site is complicated the instant theme preview doesn’t always work great because you need to get into the theme and make some changes to get the best out of it.

    Id like to be able to create a virtual site and play around with the settings then decide to buy or not.

    Obviously self hosted wordpress.org is more flexible…. But I prefer wordpress.com.
    Thanks guys

    I love Pretty Young Thing! It’s very fresh and colorful. A lot of the themes you make seem very similar to one another, but this one’s different. I, for one, would love to see more unique, customizable themes.
