Answers Get answers to common questions about this theme.
How do I install the theme once I've purchased it?
Easy! We'll email you a zip file, which you can upload via the "Online Store" section of your Shopify admin. Simply click "Upload theme" and it will be there for you to customize, preview, and publish when you're ready.
Can I customize the theme styles? Or can I use one theme style on one page and another style on a different page?
Yes and yes! We created these theme styles to show the diversity of Empire's features, but you can pick and choose however you want. Think of the styles as jumping-off points.
Can I use our company's font?
Maybe. If your company's font is available in the Shopify font library or through Typekit, you can use it in the theme. If it's a Typekit font, you will need to edit your theme's code
Can you help me customize the theme?
We can help you get set up and familiarize yourself with Empire's features, but we can't guarantee support for extensive customizations. That said, we'll do whatever we can to help you find a viable solution.
Does this theme integrate with all Shopify apps?
Not all, but many! All Pixel Union themes integrate with Pixel Union apps. If you're using an app from another developer, please contact them to see if it plays well with Empire.
