  • All, yes, apart from Brooklyn and Pop-Toy. Designing a banner for any Brooklyn theme store is a real pain – the website just keeps on distorting the images. Also Pop-Toy is a mistake. The rest are joy to work with, any free Shopify theme can be beautifully optimized if the basics are there. Thank you for an extensive info! http://www.rockpapercopy.co.uk/

    Thank you for this compilation! I agree with Rock Paper Copy. I think that a list of plugins would be a great addition to the list of themes. If you’re going to write it, I advise you to take a look at https://elfsight.com/instagram-feed-instashow/shopify/. It would be interesting to read your review on it. Thanks!
