CATCH THEMES FAMILY
Sakin Shrestha founded Catch Themes around eight years back from today. Catch Themes was born in 2012 when Sakin was trying to build a website of his own, sakinshrestha.com. He downloaded the default WordPress theme: “Twenty Eleven“. However, it didn’t have enough functionalities according to his needs, so he made some alterations — he added some sliders, boxes, and menus, and got it ready for his website launch. Since he had created a new theme, he figured he would add it to the Themes Library. He called it Catch Box, created the name Catch Themes for the submission, and submitted the theme as Catch Themes in WordPress.org.
On the day the theme went live in Catch Themes in WordPress.org theme repository, it was downloaded over 500 times, and the number of downloads kept going up every day. The theme became so successful that it was one of the top 5 themes on WordPress at one point. Having his theme as one of the top 5 Themes on WordPress.org gave Sakin the push that he needed to start product development. He made another theme, Simple Catch, from scratch, and Catch Themes started accepting donations. Eventually, he created Catch Box Pro and Simple Catch Pro on 21st Sept 2012, and that is how Catch Themes officially came into the business.
And today, we stand tall with our heads high that Catch Themes is a leading Theme and Plugin Development company in Nepal with loyal customers from around the globe.
Catch Themes currently has a total of 162 WordPress Themes, including both Premium and Free. Likewise, we have 11 Premium and 24 Free WordPress plugins available. Our themes and plugins are highly customizable, easy to set up, secure, and come packaged with effective support.
