Level: Charming

Creator Charming is our middle tier of theme customizations.

Are YOU a charming blogger?

You want your site built with new functionality: cool ideas you’ve noticed on other sites that you’d like on your site!

You have loads of content, so you’ll need custom blocks. It’s not just about styling for you: you’re interested in growing your brand.

Charming Theme Examples

Customizations You’ll Love

(and your readers will too)

A footer with all those SEO links in a place where users will see them when they need them (when they’re so engaged they reach the bottom of the post). Plus a relevant CTA at the same time!

Lots of easy-to-use row blocks for specific posts, recent posts, or even manual content.

A big, visual grid for catching the eye of users that scroll a little too fast past the good goods.

Search bars everywhere. Never again shall a reader say they cannot find a recipe! (Just kidding.)

Authority-boosting review block. Use in posts, for products, anywhere we want cause it’s a Block theme!

A mobile header without a cumbersome tap-to-open menu that nobody but you uses.

Fun text-only blocks so we don’t overload readers with our mad photography skills, and instead remind them we’re people too.

Benefits of our Charming Customizations

  • Creator Theme’s 20 custom blocks… plus even more stylized blocks. We offer up to 2 variations of our 20 existing custom blocks styled to match your brand & offerings… and another 5 blocks built just for you.
  • Super stylized, detailed posts combining your custom blocks into the ultimate reader’s delight.
  • 10 page templates built just for your brand.

Compare Pricing

  • Charming customizations start at $18k for development, customizations & implementation. You’ll receive development with greater attention to detail, a slightly longer timeline, and an additional client review process to ensure your site is pixel-perfect before your launch date!

Getting Started

  • We require a $4k deposit in order to reserve your development start date.
  • We have limited availability, as we value maintaining our small but mighty team of experienced developers who are well-versed in the blogging niche.
  • To discuss development with Once Coupled, we’ll schedule a meeting to determine that your site’s specific functionality (and goals) are a good fit after you’ve reviewed our proposal.

Theme Support

  • During the development process and in the week leading up to launch, we walk you through your new theme to ensure that you understand how to use it moving forward.
    • It’s built with Gutenberg blocks throughout, so if you’re familiar with blocks this will be really straightforward for you.
  • We use our own child theme for each customization tier- as well as our base Creator Theme users.
    • You can check out our knowledgebase, which shares information about how to edit and optimize each aspect of Creator Theme on your own, independently.
  • Want a more hands-on approach? We’ve maintained a retainer program for Once Coupled custom theme clients for nearly a decade, and it’s still going strong. When you invest in theme customizations with Once Coupled, our developers are only an email (or Marker.io task) away.
  • We value the longstanding relationships we’ve created in our decade of working in the food blogging niche.
