Four years ago Catch Themes was conceived by Sakin Shrestha and today, it is a leading WordPress theme and plugin development company of Nepal, with loyal customers from all over the globe.
We want to take this chance to thank everyone who has helped Catch Themes grow in any way. You already have been using our products, feeding our blog, or are our loyal Twitter follower and a fan of us in Facebook. We would not be celebrating our 4th anniversary without your support that’s for sure.
Who We Are
Catch Themes was born in 2012 when Sakin was trying to make a website of his own, sakinshrestha.com. He downloaded the default WordPress theme: “Twenty Eleven“. However, it didn’t have enough functionality for his purposes, so he made some alterations — he added some sliders, boxes, and menus, and got it ready for his site. 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 to 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 become 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 Catch Themes was officially in business.
