Welcome to Launch Effect! Our latest blog post: Sunsetting Launch Effect



Sunsetting Launch Effect

After five years, we’re officially sunsetting Launch Effect. The free version of the theme is still available, but we will no longer offer Premium versions of the theme. We will also no longer be offering support. These changes are effective immediately.

We appreciate your support over the years, and we’re proud of the impact Launch Effect has had on thousands of startups and small businesses all over the world.

We are also exploring a sale of the Launch Effect property and its related assets (domain, website, theme code, and marketing infrastructure). If you are interested, please contact .
