I’ve been using the Motion theme for a personal site for a while now. With the need to update my other companies larger site I wanted to stay with Archetype. With their guidance I chose the Impulse theme. The Impulse 2.0 Shopify update has delivered a world class theme that is truly customisable at all levels. The level of support I’ve received from Glenn and the team has been exceptional.

After the 2.0 update.. I love this theme!!! So many customization options and can work for any type of store. And the customer service??? Amazing they respond within a few hours and are willing to help. Stop getting cheap themeforest themes and invest in your brand.

Impulse is a beautiful theme by Archetype. Perfect for my store and very user-friendly. And when you need support they are there for any questions. Outstanding product and service.

For the support alone this team definitely gets a 5 stars from us. Add to that the easy to use features for extensive customisation… yes, we are big fan! Awesome theme and awesome team. Thumbs up
