I have been using Pixel Union's Empire theme since I first landed at Shopify (5 or 6 years ago). I like how clean and professional it looks. Pixel Union does a great job of keeping their themes up to date, so my money was well spent all those years ago. When I need help, I've never had anything but a good (and fast) experience when dealing with their support team.

Excellent, robust and design-friendly theme. Coming from a background of drag-and-drop WordPress design, Empire theme was a really easy transition. Support is efficient and responsive. Very happy. Worth the price.

We have been using the Empire Theme for a couple of years and it has been brilliant, any support I have needed has been provided quickly. I am certainly in no hurry to change to another theme! Well done.

Finest Baits Feb 5, 2024

The theme looks good overall but is bad designed regarding SEO. There is no H1 title and almost everything is H2. Once you edit their code updates are no longer provided neither is support. The theme is slow and loads a lot of js that slows the shop down, especially on mobile. Every image is lazy loaded even the lcp main image. If you want to customize anything you need to pay aa expert extra.....

Hi Finest Baits team! The Empire theme has an h1 tag on each page, and we have sent you the steps to configure this on your theme. As for the lazy loading, in order to disable this, you would need to customize the theme's code, and this is outside the scope of our support, so we recommend working with one of our trusted partners. Thank you for your feedback! All the best, Pixel Union
