The Pressmart Theme
The Pressmart theme came on the market at the end of 2022 and is therefore brand new. The word “mart” in the title indicates that the theme was developed especially for Woocommerce. At the moment the price is still very low. Many new themes give huge discounts in the beginning to become known faster.
The Pressmart theme currently has an unblemished rating of 5 out of 5. Until now, only 11 people have bought the theme and issued a rating. However, the fact that each of them gave a 5-star rating is striking and I think it can only be a good theme. Let’s start quickly with this review.
Pressmart Theme Review: Speed
Pressmart loads fast in all browsers. Below you can see the results of one of their demo websites displayed via iframe on Themeforest. This comes at the expense of speed so the real results are better than the ones you see below, but these results are already very good in principle.
It seems as if the theme is really only concentrating on shops at the moment. All demos are for webshops. These are very well styled demos and the number of 6 gives plenty of choice.
Pressmart + Elementor
Pressmart works everywhere with the excellent Elementor page builder, one of my favorite page builders. I must honestly say that I kind of hate themes with their own brand page builder. As a web designer you quickly understand how everything works, but it is even more pleasant if you can simply work with Elementor.
Mega Menu in Pressmart
Megamenus are of course no longer the latest gadget, but a theme must of course have it. Use the Pressmart drag and drop megamenu builder to have beautiful menus on your website.
Pressmart + Woocommerce
Pressmart is a real Woocommerce theme and is therefore purely focused on the construction of webshops. The theme has a lot to offer in this area. A good example of this are the +10 shopping page layouts including off canvas sidebars, Ajax filters and Infinite Scroll.
Options for Products in Woocommerce
There is also certainly no shortage of options for the products. Countdowns, Quick-Buy, Swatches, and more. See in the image below that there is also a sticky “Add to cart” bar.
Different Single Product Lay-outs
Pressmart also lets you choose from a range of layouts for the product pages. Below you see 4 examples of beautifully styled layouts. The theme currently does not have a layout builder for these kinds of pages as the top themes have, but one cannot expect this for the current price of the theme. If the theme continues to be successful, these builders will definitely appear in future upgrades.
Special E-commerce Features
With Pressmart, your shop immediately comes across as professional to visitors. The shop has very modern features for shop, which add to the convenience of shopping. Think things like Wishlist with categories, Frequently bought Together, and a bar progressive for Free Shipping.
Advanced Ajax Cart
The Ajax Cart supports the purchase process of your visitors on both mobile and desktop. This makes putting products in the shopping cart less time-consuming because people don’t have to go back and forth, but buy via the pop up.
More Ajax functions
Your visitors can quickly filter your products by color, rating and more via the Ajax Filters without having to renew the screen. This is a top feature.
Headers in Pressmart
You can choose from 5 well thought out headers. The theme does not have a header builder, but it is so new that we certainly do not fall for it. They will certainly be working on anything and everything to give the theme more and more features. There is also a reasonable choice for footers.
Portfolios & Blogs
Maybe not the strongest point of Pressmart, but one can just build a decent blog or portfolio with it too. Good to know because a webshop can sometimes run a blog next to it.
Pressmart Theme Review Conclusion
This review is coming to an end, if you want to know more, read on on the Pressmart site. As far as I’m concerned, the theme can only be used to create webshops with it, but it is very good at that. Pressmart is a great Woocommerce theme and definitely recommended.
Let’s continue this Impreza vs Pressmart comparison with the Impreza Theme.
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.
Impreza vs Pressmart Conclusion
I like Impreza better, it is just better overall. But there is a small problem, these themes want to see a separate expensive license for every website you want to build with it. 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.
