What does a custom theme design cost in USD ?
We are looking for something similar to these:
I do not want quotes from developers, I am just trying to find out ballpark pricing.
We would need the features:
- Feedburner Integration
- 2 Column Tabless (CSS Layout)
- Sidebar Widget Ready
- Gravatar ready
- Valid CSS and XHTML
- Browser compatibility: All Major Browsers
- Related Posts
- Popular Posts
- Flickr Showcase
- Ad Management System
- Social Linking (Digg, StumbleUpon, etc.)
I think $1500-$2000 is a good ballpark. It would probably be more if you wanted to hire the original designers of those themes because:
1) they may already be swamped with work 2) Convergence most likely made at least $6000 in revenues so far
If you’re interested in hiring someone, I may be available so contact me through my user page and we can talk more if you want. Check out my portfolio here, just 2 items so far, but I’m a new designer here.
However, full width themes like Convergence or Memex are no problem for me to develop. Take care and good luck.
