A WordPress theme pack is a collection of themes which can be bought as a package. Theme packs are a money-saving option for developers who build multiple websites in a short span of time. Some WordPress theme packs charge a recurring fee, while others offer lifetime access with a single purchase. A detailed list of WordPress theme packs currently out in the market can be found here.
Even though the price of most theme packs are higher than buying a single theme, you do receive a lot of benefits in the long run. I have used many theme packs and here are my top three choices.
Elegant themes is the leading WordPress theme pack provider at the moment in terms of number of customers. The themes available here are reliable, supportive and beautifully designed.
Their theme pack offers the most economical price in the market. The lifetime access pack at just $249, which is a great deal. They also provide a developer pack option at just $89 per year.
We reached out to Jon Muller, owner of Ergonomic Trends and avid user of Elegant Themes, what he likes most about their theme package:
I create around one new site each month. Elegant Themes has been the most cost-effective way I’ve found to quickly set up a professional looking site in no time. I pick a theme, then use the Divi Builder to customize its look. It literally takes me 20 minutes flat.
Elegant Theme’s theme pack includes 88 high-class WordPress themes, including some popular themes like DIVI. Each theme comes with different styling and functionality. Their A rating on BBB and more than 75000 followers on their Facebook page prove their success story.
