  1. I’m so glad I caught this post in my feed reader. So many theme clubs, so few I’ll invest in. Not a lot of themes there right now but they are the new guys. The “Cool Stuff” theme design was enough to win me over. I love the flat ui design and all of the themes just ‘pop’.
    I’ll consider that a $35 well spent to have access to whatever else they have in the pipeline.

    I am delighted to try this new marketplace. There is a general paradigm when it comes to quality and price, meaning that high quality is expensive. Not in this case! I got all themes and PSDs for 55 bucks per year.

  3. What exactly is a Theme Club? I think I understand – it sounds like a flat rate for everything the develop within a year or month. Is that it? And how are you sure you get your value out of these? Do they commit to x number of themes per year?

  4. @Ed Holtzman – Glad to see I’m not the only one that was impressed with the design of the Cool Stuff theme. By the way, I think they still have their buy one get one free sale going on so double check and see if you qualify to get a second theme for free for purchasing Cool Stuff.

    @Tim Burt – Good thing you got in early because they will be raising the prices sooner rather than later.

    @Eric Mesa – Yes, that is essentially what a club. If you paid their prices today, you would pay $35 for a years worth of updates, support and access to whatever themes are developed in that time span. As for your last question, nobody has a crystal ball that works correctly. It’s hard to guess on whether they will follow through on their goal of one theme per month but that’s what the text on their website says they are aiming to do. So if you purchase a club membership and you notice they haven’t released anything for 2-3 months, I would guess that would substantially lower the value although right now at $35 a year, there is not a lot of value to be lost.

  5. Hey Jeff! They do still have the buy one/get offer.
    “Cool Stuff” impressed me enough to purchase the membership, not just that one because I figure they most have some really cool stuff in the pipeline. With at least one new theme per month being released I know I’ll get my money’s worth. :-)

    Hey Jeffro!

    I’ve been following this blog lately and I am happy that you have published this post about this marketplace. I have just got a standard club access.

    First impression, I like the fact that there was no first time fee. I have had an experience with WPZOOM and Themefuse that required an initial fee of around 200$. Teslathemes has no hidden fees, just those 35$ per year and all. I was really impressed by this low fee. I must admit that initially I thought this is a scam because other marketplaces have much higher fees.

    Second thing, after payment all was downloadable from the member panel. One thing though, I have tried Revoke theme and I can’t seem to make it look like in the demos. I contacted their support, will see how it goes.

    Overall, I am pleased with it. Not much to lose in the end :D

  8. $25 for a premium theme is a price that everyone can’t miss. Thanks for this information Jeffro. I really like their design, it’s simply user friendly, I have registered to become an affiliate member and hopefully have a good selling :D

    Hey, this comment editor works better that the last time I used it, nice to have it :)

  9. The first rule of theme club: you do not talk about theme club. Oh wait, that was something else. Disregard.

    Seriously though, the price is right and I like their direct responses to your questions. As a potential customer, it seems that my risk is pretty low – spend $55 (the price of one theme elsewhere) and have access to all of their stuff. I also like that the licensing permits use on “unlimited websites.”

    I’ll be keeping an eye on ‘em. It really sounds promising.

  10. Now comes the real test. I opened a support ticket. Turn-around time on things like that are key for me
