Neat in Action

We recently announced our newest theme, Neat. Artists and shop owners all over are taking advantage of this photography friendly theme, which groups products in collections that are easy to shop. We hunted down a few examples of stores using Neat well. Let them give you ideas on how to customize Neat for your own shop.

"Framing photos" on Semblance

Check out how Semblance selected their slideshow images: the products are grouped to one side to frame the welcome text, but without making it difficult to read. When planning your photoshoots, think about how images will be used in your store and plan accordingly.

  • Background color: #FFFFFF
  • Welcome text color: #FFFFFF
  • Text color: #999393
  • Link color: #CCCCCC
  • Link hover color: #4D4D4D
  • Header font: Raleway
  • Text font: Raleway

"Colorful culture" on Welcome Skateboards

Welcome’s homepage slideshow doesn’t just include styled product photos, but includes photos of their skateboards being used in the real world. They’re not just selling boards, they’re sharing skate culture. Pro-tip: If you want your logo to seamlessly fit in with the slideshow like Welcome, save a version with a transparent background, like a .png file.

  • Background color: #FFFFFF
  • Welcome text color: #FFFFFF
  • Text color: #000000
  • Link color: #000000
  • Link hover color: #F25749
  • Header font: Times New Roman
  • Text font: Helvetica

"To the point" on Bayardstown

Sometimes you just want to skip the bells and whistles and get to shopping. Bayardstown Social Club added custom code to skip the homepage so that customers go straight to the products page. They also added their own subtle background image, making their shop unique but still easy on the eyes. To make similar changes, you’ll need a paid plan to access your store’s code.

  • Background color: custom image
  • Welcome text color: #757575
  • Text color: #1B1B1B
  • Link color: #919191
  • Link hover color: #757575
  • Header font: Open Sans
  • Text font: Open Sans

Neat is all about showing off your products through large photographs in the homepage slideshow and on each product page.
