If there are more advanced changes you want to make to your design that aren’t included in our built-in theme editor, you’ll need to dig in to your code, check out a third party theme, or hire a designer.
For savvy code conquerers
Most theme HTML is editable within all built-in pages, except for checkout. Big Cartel themes also use Liquid markup as the theme’s language. Check out our tech documentation for the full rundown.
CSS-wise, it’s best to override existing styles at the bottom of Customize Design > Advanced > CSS instead of editing it directly, especially if you’re only tweaking certain page elements.
Third-party themes and resources
If none of our built-in themes strike your fancy, but you don’t have any coding experience, you may want to check out other pre-made themes or code add-ons from third party builders: WeTheme, Theme Fiend, and Greg Scharf.
Each theme provider will give you their own set of instructions for applying their design to your shop.
