Recommended Places to Buy WordPress Premium Themes

In a previous post I looked at five reasons premium themes were better than their free alternatives. Today, I want to give you a few places to go to where I and others have had success with finding premium WordPress themes.

The four places I’ve used quite a bit and had success with are:

 Rockettheme.com
Press75.com
Solostream.com
WooThemes.com (also recommended by @Matt_Raz and @patrickjpowers)

I’ve purchased premium themes from each of these sites and had luck. Theme documentation is included and forums are readily available with answers I can’t find in the documentation or figure out on my own.

WPZoom was another one recommended on Twitter by @julietiedens, I just haven’t had any experience with it but it looks to fall in line with those I’ve listed above.

Do you have any recommendations of your own? Like one of those listed above. Would love to hear in the comments below.

    I just bought my first premium theme through Woo Themes and have been very happy with the experience so far.

    For my own “photo blog,” I bought a theme through GraphPaperPress. With the subscription, I have access to several great themes and to their support network.

    The themes integrate with my photo site, but I have not done the complete integration yet. Still, my new site looks so much better than my old site. I finally look like a photographer. Before, my photos were not vivid.

    I am having problems with something else though. I still haven’t learned how to connect all my comments.
