Our newest theme Instamate takes a huge step forward by introducing never-before seen features in any of our themes including live theme customization previews and optional integration with Instagram and Twitter. Plus, it has those big, minimalist slideshows that we know you all love.
Instamate is the beginning of a new era of WordPress themes at Graph Paper Press that will make it as easy as possible for you to customize your theme and will provide the basis of all our themes moving forward.

In addition to what you see in the video above, we’ve also added additional features to Instamate since our sneak peek last week. Check out the full list of capabilities below:
Live Theme Customizer
The live theme customizer is seriously addictive and we know you’re going to absolutely love it. Change background colors, upload a custom header image, or choose between over 350 Google fonts and see the changes happen instantaneously, live on the page before clicking save.
Tweak CSS Live
In addition to the other live theme customizer options, there is now a CSS panel for adding custom CSS that updates live as you make changes.
Choose your link color, your header text color and your background color with a simple click on the integrated color picker. These changes happen live, right before your eyes, so you can fine-tune your site colors to your own taste.
Choosing fonts is now dead simple. Select between over 350 fonts from the Google Font directory and preview the font pairings live. You can select two font: One for headings and another complementary font for everything else.
Optional Header Image & Sidebar Alignment
We’ve made the header image optional. You can easily remove it or add you own on the Live Theme Customizer page. Having a left or right Sidebar is also up to you. Don’t want a Sidebar at all? Instamate supports that too.
Horizontal, Vertical or Square Thumbnails
Quickly change between horizontal , vertical or square thumbnails on the Live Theme Customizer page or on the Theme Options page. If you are a portrait photographer, this theme is for you. If you are a landscape photographer, well, ditto. Prefer square thumbnails? We got you covered.
Optional Instagram Integration
If you love Instagram as much as we do, you’ll love the optional integration with Instagram in this theme. Here’s how it works. When you use the theme in conjunction with the Instagrate plugin, you’ll be able to upload an image to Instagram from your phone, and the image will be cross-posted to your WordPress site by creating a new post with the Image Post format. The theme’s proportions fit Instagram photos perfectly. It’s magic.
Like all of our new themes, Instamate adapts to different screen sizes so that your website will work (and be optimized for) iPhones, iPads and other mobile devices. Resize your browser window to see the fluid grids and flexible images in action on the demo page.
