Testimonials for Gleam theme:

“I love my Gleam theme.
It works absolutely great. Never had problems. I use it over 3 years now. After this time i wanted to modify it a little bit and asked customer support a few questions. He answered immediately and helped me in an easy way to modify my Gleam theme.
Thank you from my bottom of my heart!”

“I have purchased quite a lot of themes on Themeforest in last decade, but never have I ever had such an easy job customizing it to my needs. Super simple to use, yet very attractive and professionally looking! I was able to set up everything and run my website in one day, which is not very common tbh. Thank you! There was one bug on Elementor’s side, but with developer’s help it haven’t slowed down the process of building my website and that level of customer care is highly appreciated!”

“Excellent theme. The design looks neat and my site is blazing fast across all platforms. Although Gleam does not offer the most extensive feature set of all available photography-related WordPress themes here on Themeforest, this one is well-thought and organized. Gleam does NOT try to be the jack of all trades, ending up being master of none. What it offers, works like a charm. I have to mention the great support, too. Under 12 hours response time, even on a weekend.
