Print Theme is my first publicly released theme for the Tumblr platform. It draws its inspiration from the CMYK colour blocks you see at the edge of printed material. I thought it would appeal to the creative bias of Tumblr users, and was a feature I had not seen on other themes.
I noticed that other themes sacrificed quality markup and accessibility for presentation. I ensured the benefits of HTML5 semantic markup, accessibility, international language support and backwards compatibility to older browsers, while putting the content first and allowing theme customisation.
- HTML5 semantic markup
- Typographic grid
- Custom CSS support
- Multi-language support
- @media queries to handle print styles
The theme achieved 200+ installs within its first available and peaked at 450+ installs.
For more info about the themes features and customisation options available, see my Print Theme page for more details. I also posted a follow-up of the theme progress and the lessons learned during its development, submission and release. All Print Theme posts are tagged #printtheme.
Print Theme can be found on the Tumblr Theme Garden.
Update: I have migrated from Tumblr to a WordPress.com blog of the same username.All Work
