StudioPress is a WordPress theme developer founded in 2007. The company is the mastermind behind the Genesis Framework, one of the most, if not the most, widely used frameworks in the world of WordPress. Aside from that, the company also offers a theme shop where it sells a mixture of in-house and third-party themes. It has over 182,000 customers to date.

Genesis is a framework. It provides the insides of a theme, which include such things as security, SEO and basic design features along with additional features to prepare it for future updates and customizations.

WordPress developers and novice WordPress users alike can use this framework with what are known as “child themes” to complete their themes’ designs. A child theme is the cloak that gives Genesis its design. Using StudioPress’ metaphor, Genesis is the frame and body of a car while a child theme is its paint job.

StudioPress offers one-time pricing options. You can either buy just the framework or you can buy the framework plus one of the many child themes available for Genesis through StudioPress’ shop. Some of these themes were developed by third-party developers, as stated

earlier. You can, however, buy all themes for a one-time price. It’s a hefty price, but you have the potential save over $1,200, which can be fairly significant for professional WordPress developers who develop sites for several customers.

The company’s blog includes updates on its latest themes and company advancements along with general WordPress tips and tutorials.
