Custom Development

For the majority of customers, our themes have enough features to match their requirements and no custom work is needed. There is, however, a small percentage of customers who want to have custom design or development work done.

The AppThemes team does not provide any custom services but can recommend a few alternatives:

  • AppThemes Marketplace – our very own plugins and child themes Marketplace has dozens of products which are built by our team and other highly skilled developers.
  • Certified Partners – we’ve got several partnerships with WordPress development firms who are happy to take on custom projects.


Our themes work without plugins but we do recommend adding a few to enhance your site even further. Below you will find a list of plugins we like.
