After paying 240USD, I am very disappointed and unhappy with the Expression theme. I can not believe that for a theme 2.0 There is no "Accordions tabs" function for the product page. The accordions tabs function is suppose to be a very simple and must have feature in a product page. For people who want their product page look tidy and clean, EXPRESSION them is definitely not a good option for you.

Eine schöne, elegante, hochwertige Theme. Rascher und vor allem netter Support.

I have been using this theme for a couple years now. I love it. Easy to update to newest version, even the newest 6.0.0 running shopify 2.0 is smooth. Lots of features packed into this clean design. I just purchased a 2nd template from Clean Canvas, Showcase! Loving that even more! After looking at every template in the Shopify database Clean Canvas was still a perfect fit for my website!

The theme is clean, bold and very modern and professional looking. And the support team is wonderful. They helped me a lot with a customization issue that I had.
