Well done theme and fits what I was looking for really well! I am building my first store and had originally started with another theme, but it just wasn't coming together the way I'd hoped. Then I purchased the Expressions theme and my shop started to come to life! Thanks for the great-looking theme and the helpful support.

I've been running this theme for the past year and I have been happy with it. Although I was new to Shopify, I was able to figure out how to customize the code to make the theme work for me. It's one of the most versatile available if you need to display more content than just your items for sale. I haven't had to seek support from Clean Canvas.

Fab theme.. I designed the whole of our labelsplease site myself as a non-web designer.. v e r y customisable.. I found a solution to place a visual category menu on my homepage. Very pleased with the functionality. Take a peek at our site ! Best wishes, John.

Wow! This theme is gorgeous, and really professional. The customization options seem endless, plus there is a wealth of information and support on their site (which is easy to navigate!) Plus, I had an issue with one of my jQuery functions not displaying properly and the team was quick to fix it for me! A super responsive support team shows they really care about their work and their customers!
