The newest update of this theme is fantastic! Plus the developers are incredibly helpful when it comes to fixing minor specific issues that only effect my store. Would recommend!

Very good customer service, I've emailed them about a technical issue and they answered quickly !

Vélo Shermont Dec 09, 2021

A very beautiful theme. Since using, Archetype keeps improving it. I used a few lines of css and html codes in the theme to make uses that I missed, but now from Shopify store 2.0 the theme has become much more versatile for my use and my codes are only in the custom sections. And updating it just got easier. Keep up the good work Archetype team and the prompt feedback on technical support.

Illuminating Stories, LLC Dec 07, 2021

Beautiful theme with incredible customization options that are so intuitive to use. Very responsive support team- Migs was so wonderful to work with when I encountered an issue I've never experienced before. He was quick, thorough in his explanation of the root cause (related to a third-party app I was using), fixed the issue for me, and provided guidance on how to mitigate it going forward. TY!
