Normally I don't pass along info like this as it just creates more competition but...

For $40 elegantthemes.com has a huge selection, that's $40 for a year for any theme unlimited DLs AND support. They have really saved my butt on a number of occasions and often let me sell sites priced at 1k which I can customize and turn out fairly quickly.

Check them out, the coding is decent and they are easy to work with. Support is not instant but for the price I hardly expect it to be. Also no auto update via WP, you have to do it manually

I am not affiliated with them in any way.

Anyone else have any good recommendations for low cost professional WP themes?

    Elegant Themes is awesome, I use them also and I've found they generally I can find a theme for just about any project I'm working on, I'll definitely second that

        I hope Theme Forest has agood variety of Wordpress themes. They charge around $35 for each template. Sometimes you get a free file of a month.

    I am blown away on these very cheap themes, WordPress Themes | Joomla Themes - TemplateSOLD

    This is one of my favorite wp themes and you just need to have 1 USD to have it, FreshCover - WordPress Template - WP Personal/Creative - WordPress Themes - templatesold.com

    How cool is that?

    But of course, I am a huge headwaytheme fan.

    Cheers,
    Louie Tugas

    P.S. I like the elegant themes as well especially the "MyProduct" theme.

      Get Thesis.

      Thesis 2 is going to be coming out in a few months and I bet the price will skyrocket. I've been listening to Chris Pearson and it's going to be absolutely huge.

        Fin,

        I've been using Thesis almost since it came out.
        I do have a Dev. lic.

        I just wanted to say, I can't wait, but I've been hearing this in emails
        from Chris for over a year. I'll believe it when I see it.

        On the other hand, v1.8.5 works just fine and a new
        version will just be more to learn.

    Elegant themes is pretty decent, the only problem is that they are so stylized that you have to kind of do a lot in order to help separate your site from other users who use them. But for the price I think it's a great deal.

    I have many different themes that I use dependant upon the site. I own OptimizePress, Flexsqueeze, Thesis and I am also a member of Elegant themes. They do have some very nice, ready to go themes.

    I like the first three mentioned as I am able to customize them for my needs.

    Honestly, I don't like Elegant Themes very much.

    My favorite themes are at Theme Junkie - Theme Junkie | Premium WordPress Themes

    For Wordpress, the best FREE theme that I used is probably Jules Joffrin.

    Really clean to customize and modify.

    Hi ,
    i work with TP and i'm more than happy! Squeeze page , landing page , membership site , optin forms, action button and much more.....all very easy to use drag and drop style, a lot of graphics too and template , great navigation and fast loading. you can check out my blog here http://frankmoreno.com you will find a link to the main site ,make sure you check the video it's amazing ! and show what you can do with the theme. It's cheaper than most of the premium theme and support ( i use this theme in various blog since 3 years ) is fast nad reliable.
    Just have a look .
    regards

      This is a not so great.

      I just bought a WP theme from Template Monster for a client.
      It is a very complex theme that came with very little
      documentation.

      Uploading was nuts.

      Then I had a problem with the link structure.
      Support had no idea and told me it was my hosting
      company that was messing it up. LOL!

      I finally figured out that in the database dump they
      had set up the permalinks wrong for the site.
      Changed that after 2 days of digging and got it working.

      Great template, great price, just needs more documentation.

    yeah...elegantthemes are ok but personally I prefer Genesis, Thesis, Themeforest (exactly in this order) and just after those 3 maybe I'll consider using a theme from elegantthemes which like I said are very nice and also they offer a very good price but they still have a lot of work to do if they want to be at the same level as Genesis for example.
