BORDER theme is awesome and easy on the eyes, totally. We do need to pop up our images, we produce advertising campaign materials working with high-res photos and stuff like that and this theme – especially for the homepage slider – is perfect.

Setup and customization? Easy-peasy! And customer support over the top.
Thanks, PIXELGRADE, we’re gonna recommend your team to our best friends.

Customization level

I recently changed my WordPress theme to Border and am loving it. It’s beautiful and extremely easy to use (even for those of us who are not programmers.) I wasn’t sure if Border would be the right theme for my business since I am not a photographer. In hindsight, it was the right decision.

When I did have an issue upgrading to 1.7 the team was extremely responsive and quickly told me how to solve my issue.

Oana Filip's response (Pixelgrade team)

Oh well, this is how we like doing things at Pixelgrade. Driven by excellence and care, two of our core values. Happy to see that you resonate with both! 💜

  • What will I need to use this theme?

    You will need your own domain and a web hosting with the current WordPress version installed. To make things easier for you, we recommend the Flywheel hosting company.

  • Can I customize the themes?

    Yes, all of our themes are licensed under GPL (like Word­Press itself), so you can cus­tomize them with no restric­tions. Feel free to adapt it to your own writing or business needs!

  • Do I need to purchase any plugins?

    This theme does not need premium plugins to configure it as showcased in the demo. Some plugins might require premium licenses for advanced features but that’s not a requirement.

  • Does this theme use a page builder?

    You should be able to run any page builder of your choice (Elementor, Divi, Visual Composer or others) with no problem. All this said we didn't use one when creating this theme.

  • Can I use the themes for client work?

    If it’s just one client, sure. If you’re a freelancer or a small agency that wants to create multiple websites for clients, you can pick the Themes Bundle plan and have unlimited access to all of our themes to build as many websites that you want.

  • What is your refund policy?

    Although we don’t think you’ll ever want a refund, our goal is always to be fair and reasonable. The refund policy is not any different: we offer a 14–days no‐risk money back guarantee on all of our themes. No questions asked!
