Just wanted to leave a review regarding the support for this theme. I had a few bugs with the mobile version of my store recently (which are expected with any theme). I contacted support and they were able to get everything fixed within 24 hours! Very responsive, helpful, and they actually listen when you offer suggestions for changes with theme updates. Definitely recommend
I am really happy with the Reach theme. As promised, it works intuitively with mobile devices and also looks wonderful on a full size screen. Any issues that I had were addressed quickly and I was extremely impressed with the Pixel Union support team. Thanks so much!
Originally I was going to go with a different theme, but then I saw the Reach theme and had a little play around and it was better suited. I love how simple it is but in a nice elegant way. You can turn on and off different features and do some customisation on it. Many thanks to Steve for his superb customer care when I ran into tech issues. Highly recommended!
Theme is good aesthetically but there are a few things which have not been configured and are a bit buggy. Going to have to wait for updates, but until then it is what it is. Support responds within a day or two. Visually it is a very nice theme and has a good mobile UI.
How do I install the theme once I’ve purchased it?
Easy! We’ll email you a zip file, which you can upload via the “Online Store” section of your Shopify admin. Simply click “Upload theme” and it will be there for you to customize, preview, and publish when you’re ready.
Can I customize the theme styles? Or can I use one theme style on one page and another style on a different page?
Yes and yes! We created these theme styles to show the diversity of Reach’s features, but you can pick and choose however you want. Think of the styles as jumping-off points.
Can I use our company’s font?
Maybe. If your company’s font is available in the Shopify font library or through Typekit, you can use it in the theme. If it’s a Typekit font, you will need to edit your theme’s code
Can you help me customize the theme?
We can help you get set up and familiarize yourself with Reach’s features, but we can’t guarantee support for extensive customizations. That said, we’ll do whatever we can to help you find a viable solution.
Does this theme integrate with all Shopify apps?
Not all, but many! All Pixel Union themes integrate with Pixel Union apps. If you’re using an app from another developer, please contact them to see if it plays well with Reach.
