You see, a WordPress theme includes much more than colors and fonts. Those are handled in the CSS itself.
When you dig deeper, a theme needs to include a range of other items. For example, the actual templates where you will place content need to be individually mapped out and then build in PHP then uploaded to the WordPress install. Most non-custom themes have these already built coming in, but a fully custom theme will require them all to be created.
Also, you’ll be paying for development time to weave in all of the theme options you desire. Your options are to pay up for these to be built or make tradeoffs in functionality.
You get the picture. If you want a fully custom WordPress theme with all of the key features of a decent theme, expect to pay in excess of $20K in the majority of situations.
As yet another place where custom WordPress theme buildout will hit you, you can expect a long wait for your design partner to code and deploy all of those templates and features.
Oh, and I haven’t even mentioned the design parts themselves. the typical process involves a series of steps before coding even begins. these additional steps can take days, weeks, or months, depending on how clear you are on exactly what you expect in the end.
If you have a very clear idea of all of the details you’ll need to spell out (very rare in reality), perhaps the initial scoping of the project and mockups will take a couple of weeks. If not, you’re looking at 3-8 weeks in most cases to get the initial pieces in place.
I’ve seen custom WordPress deployments last from two months to over a year! How long are you willing to wait for the couple of special features and layouts you simply can’t live without? Is it worth the wait?
That decision is, of course, completely up to you. I like to get big projects done in as little time as possible, as do most busy marketers and business owners.
