Impreza and The7 are both sold through the same marketplace and are therefore direct competitors. That is certainly the case since both themes can be used for the construction of very nicely looking webshops. Impreza vs The7, which is the better theme? We start with Impreza which does not mean it would be better.
The Impreza Theme
The first thing I noticed when I came to their website and clicked on “Live Preview” is how well-organized and well-arranged they present the features of their theme itself. These are intelligent people, and it bodes well for the Impreza Theme itself. Impreza came on the market in 2013 and belongs to the older guard themes that have been continuously improved to date and belong to the best. Let’s start with this review.
They indicate that they have the highest rating on Themeforest with their theme. The rating is 4.89 out of 5 and is indeed very high. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a higher rating there, I don’t think so. Apparently people who bought this theme are extremely satisfied, very important if you are looking for a good theme to value the opinion of others.
Impreza's Loading Speed
Live Visual Builder
The title says Live Visual Builder and it is, but this is a tuned version of the already good WP-Bakery page builder. One of the first page builders that is still among the best. Impreza itself provides a number of “Builders” which are listed below.
Impreza Theme Header Builder
There are themes that offer header styles, which is not the same as a header builder. Styles give you different options for header types that can be installed with 1 click. However, a true eheader builder gives you unlimited freedom in the placement of items in your header. Impreza is therefore among the best themes in the field for headers.
Impreza's Grid Builder
The Grid Builder, in the past many people bought plugins for this kind of thing, for example photo presentation on the site. It is no longer necessary to spend money on this, it is simply in the themes themselves these days.
Their Woocommerce Builder
The Woo Builder, is something that Divi brought to the market. Divi basically develops everything that is new and the rest then copies it. A Woocommerce Builder gives you unlimited freedom to set up your cart, check out, product pages, my account, thank you page and more. I assume everyone knows what Woocommerce is, the most famous plugin for building shops.
Impreza Theme Review: Starter Sites
I count a good 80 starter sites. These are also called demos. A demo can be installed with a few clicks so that a complete website is immediately created with all important pages. You can then adapt this yourself to your house style by replacing the logo, texts and photos.
With the Grid Builder you can simply create your portfolio layouts yourself. Below is an example. For example, spin the items with the “Flip Box” that Impreza provides.
Impreza Theme Review Conclusion
Impreza scores in my review among the best themes on Themeforest. I like working with Elementor but I’ve worked with WP-Bakery for at least 5 years and it’s just a good page builder. The extras that Impreza adds makes everything even better. Impreza’s rating does not come out of the blue, it is a complete theme with which everything is possible. Recommended.
Let’s continue this The7 vs Impreza comparison with the The7 Theme.
The7 Theme Ratings
This The-7 Theme Review will discuss all the positive and negative aspects of The 7. The7 was published in September 2013 by DreamTheme. This theme has been sold 269,297+ times up to today and has a rating 4.76 out 5 (8500 ratings on Themeforest). There are only very few themes that have a higher average rating.
The7 Theme Load Speed
The craze for fast themes started a few years ago when it was understood that fast-loading websites are more successful because visitors have very little patience. The fastest themes such as Astra are still the fastest, but in the meantime each theme has been provided with an update to make it load quickly, and so is The7.
The7 Theme Review: PageBuilder
The7 works perfectly with, in my opinion the best page builder for WordPress, Elementor. Without having to purchase the pro version, The7 provides you with a large number of pro functions such as the ThemeBuilder and a large number of additional elements.
Of course, the theme is 100% compatible with the Gutenberg editor and all its blocks. In addition, there are many demo websites built with Gutenberg.
But there is even a 3rd page builder in The7, the WP-Bakery page builder. As a bonus, this includes an extra plugin for WP-Bakery to significantly expand the number of widgets. And there are also many demo websites built with WP-Bakery. On the image above you can see all the extra plugins you get for free in The7 theme.
Build shops with The7
Even more amazing is that you have access to a real Woocommerce Builder. This allows you to style the pages of your webshop exactly as you had it in mind. In the past one had to be very good with HTML and that was a lot of work, but not anymore. The image above roughly shows how it works.
The7 Theme Demos
The number of 40+ demos is not spectacular, but these are well-built full site demos. We can say that other themes offer more demos, but in most cases much worse demos. The7 thus more than meets the requirements that we set in this review for demos or starter sites that can be installed with 1 click.
The7 Theme Review: Settings
One of the most impressive features of the The7 theme is the large number of settings that exceed your wildest wishes. Everything has been thought of and can be adjusted without technical knowledge. In the image below you can see the numbers that they specify themselves.
The7 Theme Review Conclusion
The7 is of course a fantastic theme and it is not for nothing that the second best-selling theme on Themeforest. I can recommend it 100% for both websites and shops. It does not have a free version, you will have to buy the pro version. As long as you are looking for a theme for only 1 websites, everything is okay, but if you have to provide multiple websites with a theme, so I prefer to buy Astra or Divi, these themes may be slightly better and can be used on unlimited websites.
The7 vs Impreza Conclusion
I like The7 better, it is just better overall. But, these themes want to see a separate expensive license for every website you want to build with them. This will quickly cost you a lot of money. You are better off with Astra or Divi that can be used on an unlimited sites and are also even better and more stable themes.
