Here’s the deal: all Shopify storefronts are based off a template in some shape or form unless you do truly custom site – and if you’re not making over 6 figures per month or losing 5 figures a month because of UX issues, you don’t need a FULLY custom template. Templates are pre-built architecture but not the end result. Kind of like those crazy people on pinterest with wild IKEA hacks - we take the frame and create something totally new.
Shopify templates also come in varying degrees of flexibility, speed, well engineered sections, and documentation for upkeep. we only use templates we would recommend, trust and have used in the past and are often our springboard for the strategic design we create. If you wanted to just use a template you still won’t be much closer to that design, aesthetic and usable quality you’re after. All templates need some level of customization to achieve what you want without extra apps slowing you down. So in your investment package is a built-in custom development budget to make your store front really special and cater to your customers needs well. We’ll take care of the details for you, no sweat!
