PixelEmu themes are priced from $32 to $39 and include 6 months of support and updates. Subscriptions can be renewed at a 50% discount.

They offer free installation and will install any theme you purchase on your server for free.

Unlike most commercial WordPress theme shops that licence their products 100% GPL, PixelEmu use a more restrictive split GPL licensing for their themes and extensions. Specifically the PHP code portfolios are released under the GNU General Public License, while images, manuals, cascading style sheets, and included JavaScript are NOT GPL, and are released under a “Pixelemu Proprietary Use License”.

Unfortunately PixelEmu state a theme license only gives you “permission to use purchased theme on one domain”.
