The elegant, natural color palette and hint-of-vintage styling of the Austin preset of the Retina theme is inspired by the award-winning Whipping Post site. Retina offers a wealth of optional homepage sections, including full-width slideshows and video, testimonials, logo list, featured promotions and image gallery, as well as multiple blog layout options and alternative product page templates. Updates are always free and easy with our Theme Updater app.
The Shopify Ecommerce Design Awards celebrate the talent of designers that create and customize themes for the Shopify platform. Judges have included world-renowned designers Jeffrey Zeldman (A List Apart, Happy Cog) and Tina Roth Eisenberg (founder of Swissmiss and Tattly), as well as Shopify’s Chief Design Officer, Daniel Weinand.
Out of the Sandbox was the proud recipient of the Design Award for the groundbreaking Retina theme, which was used to create the Whipping Post shop.

What happens when I purchase a theme?
You will receive an email containing a download link and detailed installation instructions for your shop. It only takes a minute to get up and running with the new theme, please contact us if you need help.
How do I switch from my current theme?
You can have multiple themes installed in your shop at the same time, but only one theme will be published. You can setup the new theme in preview-mode and then choose to publish it at any time.
Is this a one-time fee?
Yes, you only need to purchase a theme once for your shop. Theme updates are always free, there are no additional fees. You will need a Shopify account, with several options to suit your requirements.
The Retina theme has an easy-to-configure, modular home page with separate sections that you can control. There are theme settings which allow you to place these sections in whatever order you want from top to bottom on the home page, as well as specify the content that each one contains.
