    For my part, Elegant themes is definitely the best theme clubs I ever seen.
    I have paid olny 20$ and I could donwload everything I want during one year. I haven’t been disapointed by the graphic quality of the themes and there are some amazing custom option panel admin.

    Elegant Themes is the best for me :)

    Thanks for this article it’s a good overview !

    I think you forget who created the trend template club itself, joomla.
    Almost all of template distributions in joomla world using this model.
    Please check: rocketthemes.com, yoothemes.com, joomlart.com, gavick.com, templateplazza.com, joomlajunkie.com, templateplazza.com, youjoomla.com etc. And bestofjoomla.com, which is the most complete joomla templates showcase

    Yeah, I would have to concur that Rocket Theme should be added to the list, for Joomla! PHPBB3 and soon WordPress also. I’d also add JoomlaXTC to the list for Joomla templates.
