Your New Website

To simplify the process of creating your new website, I've developed packages that reflect the most common requests from artists and craftworkers.
For a bespoke service with pages and designs based on your ideas, I will work with you to develop the site plan and quote for the building the site.

Many of the elements and layout features of these templates are adaptable. My objective is to build you an affordable website that shows off your work and which can be updated or extended as you need. I don't want your first site (or site upgrade) to limit your web potential!

Additional info:

  • Where a domain & hosting package is included, this is for 1 year, with renewals due on the anniversary. Renewals are charged at cost, but these may vary
  • To use your existing domain, I will need to have full FTP access - I will advise
  • Newsletter cost based on 5 items of news & 2 new pieces, with images; more content - cost by arrangement
  • Inclusive packages are paid at the start and no further payments are due for a year, except for additional pages or re-designs
  • For other bespoke packages, monthly updates are charged for as and when you request the work - there is no obligation to carry out an update each month, although updates are recommended to keep your site up-to-date
  • A 25% deposit is charged at the start of your project, with the balance due on site completion - usually at the time of the first month's updates
