The Startup theme has really helped us a lot. We have been able to customize so many things so fast with this theme. I love it!

Amazing theme, amazing support. I used the Startup theme with the 'home' skin. For a small sku store, this theme is phenomenal. I really don't think I will need to hire a developer for ANYTHING in the future. It's so simple to use and has every feature I need for this 'single product' store. I have built many Shopify stores, this theme is perfect. Almost as perfect as their customer support.

[Totally Recommended] I love the startup theme. I could do so much more with it, than any other theme I used before. It is an excellent solution if you're particularly looking to enhance user experience. The Startup theme made my website not only UI and UX friendly but also aesthetically pleasing. Pixel Union Support is very helpful and insightful.
