Bad theme ever, not a lot of features can add on. Announcement bar is so simple, no collapsible option. Badddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd

Reply from Clean Canvas Jul 22, 2022

Sorry to hear that you feel that way about the theme, but certain design and UX decisions are in the interest of making this theme super quick to setup and get merchants to market as quick as possible. Themes do come with an unlimited free trial option to ensure it is the correct theme for you. We do very much appreciate the feedback and wish you every success!

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.

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!
