To add a little extra excitement to the beginning of the holiday season, we’re happy to announce our newest addition to the shop – Jade!
There’s enough to worry about when running a blog and business. How to make your theme show off what you have to offer shouldn’t be one of those things. And that’s where our inspiration for Jade came from. Featuring a site banner, extra opt-in areas, a customizable homepage, two blog layouts, and more, this theme was made to grow your business with ease.

Let’s take a closer look at some of our favorite features.
As a creative business owner you always have something new you want your audience to see. Whether it’s a opt-in incentive, workshop, or consult call, your header is a perfect place to draw extra attention to it. That’s why we decided to introduce a site-wide banner for the very first time in Jade.
You have the ability to customize the colors, text, and link to show off what you’re promoting at all times. The best part is that it’s all right in the WordPress customizer so you don’t have to worry about extra plugins or trying to change complicated code.
Two Blog Layouts
Along with being our first theme to have site-wide banner, Jade is also our first theme to have multiple blog layout options!
The first option is a nice, traditional look with all of the posts having stacked titles, featured image, excerpts, and read more buttons. The second option changes things up a bit with all posts after the first appearing in a 2-column layout.
Custom Contact Page
We’re not done with new features quite yet! Jade also includes a custom Contact page layout.
Contact pages are known for being more on the boring side, as far as design goes. We decided to change that up with Jade and included a 2-column format with a pop of color to make things a little more interesting.
Blog Opt-In Areas
Next up are some extra opt-in areas throughout the blog. Regardless of what type of business you run, growing an email list is important. That’s why we’ve included extra opt-in opportunities on both of the blog layouts (after the first post) and after each of your individual blog posts.
Making it easy for website visitors to jump from one blog post to another is super important. It keeps them moving through your content, becoming more and more familiar with what you have to offer. That’s why Jade has a built-in related posts feature. No more special plugins needed!
The homepage was created to help you draw attention to your brand and what you’re all about. The large featured image is the perfect chance to give new visitors the exact feeling you’re going for and next up comes a section where you can introduce yourself or explain an offering. After that are several widget areas where you can include anything and everything you’d like either in 1, 2, or 3-column formats.
Beaver Builder Template
We’ve both fallen in love with Beaver Builder (affiliate) and how easy it is to create gorgeous pages fast, with a drag-and-drop functionality. The Beaver Builder template allows you to create full-width layouts and interacts perfectly with the free or paid version of the plugin. This means you can now easily build beautiful sales pages on your own site.
Sidebar or No Sidebar
The Jade theme looks gorgeous with and without a sidebar. This means that you can choose either template based strictly on your goals. If you do choose to go with a sidebar, we recommend having it on your Blog and post pages!
Branded By You
And the last of our favorite features is the ability for you to customize the fonts and colors used throughout the theme to make it unique to you and your brand.
