And, What Else Might You Like?
A few years ago I splurged on the StudioPress Pro-Plus All Theme Package where you'd buy the Genesis Framework. That was the best decision I ever made because I now get access to every theme they've developed and all their new releases. It’s the best deal, especially if you like to update your theme from time to time like I do or own more than one website.
Get your theme up and running today with a one-time purchase fee, and unlimited updates and support. Theme excluding its framework is currently $59.95. If you're new to Genesis you will need to purchase the Genesis framework from StudioPress website.
