Introducing the Trace Theme

Introducing the Trace Theme

Minimal and professional, Big Cartel's Trace theme is easy to customize, and now available in your admin.

Category or Product Slideshow


Showcase featured items in the Home page slideshow. Give a general tour of a few categories, or highlight new products by placing them at the top of the product list.

Product Categories Menu


Customers can quickly find what they're looking for by using the category navigation. Products are easy to find, with fewer clicks.

Customizable Welcome


Use the Welcome Image and Welcome Text to set the tone for your shop. The Welcome Button takes customers to your Products page with your own custom text.

Product Info Alignment


On the Products page, you control if the product names and prices are aligned to the left or center, underneath the thumbnail image.
