I wanted to write to thank you for your excellent templates. I lack the creativity and ability to create such wonderful templates, and have come to LOVE the ones that you have created. The template-club price is reasonable and the forum is very helpful. Thank you so much for being a resource for me. I can configure websites for my clients that they LOVE!

Have to love it when a site just works the way it's supposed to. The sign up process was quick, easy, painless. Within minutes I was downloading my template(s) and loading them on my site. It makes a difference. Awesome templates. Great documentation, easy to install and use. I only have one minor issue. There are so many options, so many features, so many choices, I'm spending more time playing with them than I am getting any work done. But I guess that's actually a good thing.

I wanted to thank you for providing great service and quality responses to customer concerns on your site. You really know how to run a business. I recently purchased an extension from another company to try it out. Many users have all had problems with it and the usual response on their forums is "have you read the instructions?" or "send in a trouble ticket and we'll fix it for you." Neither of those responses are particularly useful. One is condescending and the other doesn't fix the bugs in the module or educate the user about how the module actually works. This experience made me realise how much of a risk people take when they purchase a "virtual" product with no refunds and how disappointing it can be when it doesn't work out. I'm happy to see again and again that you provide consistent advice and really look into the concerns and problems people post here. You patch up actual bugs and you consistently help people through those problems that are caused by confusion or inexperience. It has led to you create a really solid product. A product I will be happy to pass along to others once I upgrade my membership. For our own company, I have been working with the Duoplate and New Architect Templates and I had a friend purchase a membership so I could put together a Sea of Glass template for him and they are all shaping up nicely and looking really good. Thank you.

Shape 5 Has it all together.
Great templates: The do not leave out any details. Each template is professionally created and tested.
Very Organized: The website is very well organized and dependable. Everything is done by a system and the system works.
Cutting Edge: The work Shape 5 does in template and module creation is Cutting Edge...
You may only get one chance to present your business, product or self to the world, I would venture to say if you go with Shape 5, you will present well.
Note Joomla Website Develops... If you take the time to learn how Shape 5 does things, you can take their templates and create just about anything.
Then, each month, you can expect an NEW awesome creation.

Talking about theme, support is the most important thing. It is a great feeling knowing that I will get a quick response to my questions. Joomla has developed this particular situation; code programmer working to deliver application to us, the website developers. To get it to work the code developer must understand the specific relationship between me (the questioner) and the code developer (the support). I have been like many of you jumping from one place to another trying to find the balance I need, and you know what? I found the answer to my questions here. If you are a website developer and you are like me, and you are always in a hurry and wait until the last moment....this could be the answer to your questions. The theme's here are pretty, the theme's are solid like a mature product and the support here is really fast.
I looked at other Joomla clubs, but no one is offering what Shape5 has when it comes to original designs, modern fresh interfacing and many different options to complete the perfect package. Some are close, I already own developer membership with other clubs, but Shape5 is the most consistent and stood out above all others. They are well worth every penny and I'm looking forward to future months of their design and services.

Just wanted to say thanks for the great templates! I bought a developer membership last week because I have a client who was in a bit of a rush to get a site up. I'm a programmer whose graphic design skills...have room for improvement, shall we say.. so these templates are really making that aspect of things a whole lot easier. The questions I've had so far have all had to do with where to find the settings for this and that, and I have found all the answers to my questions in the forum and have not had to contact support for anything yet. A lot of those questions have also had a lot to do with my own being a bit new to Joomla. I've already finished one site with the Sea of Glass template, and I like the experience very much. I have decided to use these templates for another 4 clients. So far I am very happy with the templates - they're making me look like I have my own creative design department! Thanks a bunch!

I am an artist/web designer/photographer and would normally prefer to do my own templates but I ran into a situation in which I needed to get my website rebuilt ASAP while working on another and just didn't have the time to create my own template from scratch. So I was searching for templates that would meet my design standards in which professional looks and clean layout were of most importance. I stumbled across your October template for photography and absolutely love the simple design and the Vmart implementation was a nice bonus. I was looking for just free templates I could quickly modify to suit my taste but... that template just really caught me eye and I must say that this was first time I spent money to get any pre-made templates by joining here for membership. I am currently working on the October template and site hoping to have it ready by end of the month. This has really save me a lot of time while in a pinch and feel it was worth the money spent in my situation where time was the critical factor. Thanks for the great designs!

I try to use free stuff whenever possible and some extensions I have paid for would have been over priced if even they were free. As a result I was very reticent when it came to paying for Shape 5 membership. As it turns out, I cannot find a single thing to complain about. The templates I have tried all work beautifully (except when I get an attack of stupid - see next paragraph) and same with extentions. I have now created 3 commercial sites and every customer is over the moon with the results.

Ok I just got here with a membership and I allready feel fine :-) I dont know why this happens yet but taking into account that I am writing this means something. Apart from that What i have to say is that Shape 5 templates are the best I have found around and what I like the most apart from the great quality is the difference that each template has. So thanks. You guys and girls are doing a GREAT job!

I came across shape5.com while looking for an easy template and even easier
extensions as I was then an absolute novice user of joomla. I fell in love with
their extremely well designed and attractive templates. The best I had seen after
searching online for quite a while. I was however a bit scared of the installation
and use, since I was very new to joomla. I shouldn't have been. The installation was
extremely easy, and configuration even easier. It was so easy I really felt like a
professional designer within a couple of hours. The service from shape5 is just
unbeatable. All my questions where answered right on time, and of course all were
very silly questions. I realise this now after a couple of days. I truly applaud
their kindness and patience with idiotic questions. Shape5 is the way to go guys, I
am glad I found them!

I have been in many clubs template, and no one give awesome templates + great and fast support as Shape 5 does. I will not renew my others clubs template, but be sure I will renew to Shape 5. Thank you so much Mikek and Jonahh, for all your great work and support,I wish you to be the most important Joomla club template.
