Web Design Questions
What are the differences between the web design packages?
There are 4 Website packages: $595, $895, $1295 & $1995. The $595 package is for smaller beginner web sites, but it is complete in its professional design and promotional abilities!. Most people go with the $895 for a little extra polish and to stand out from their competitors. For those who really want to stand out and shine above the rest, choose the $1295. The $1995 package usually consists of custom programs and advanced integrated controls. We also have economy options available including financing and a complete 1 page website and domain name for $149.95. As your business grows so can your website. No matter which package you choose, all of our websites are 100% guaranteed and you pay for nothing until the website is complete.
The real difference between each package is the amount of time spent developing the website. This includes research, original text, custom graphics, search engine optimization, custom graphics, animations, attention to details and the size of the web site. Although this does ultimately depend on your budget and you can always add to, change and grow your website. The ultimate goal is more visitors to your web site (more visitors = more business). And the better your web site looks, the better your company looks.
What type of printing is used?
All products except banners are done using a gang run procedure on offset presses including jobs of 200 and 500 quantities. This is possible due to our highly efficient workflow and job volume. Banner jobs are not offset. Positive aspects of the gang run printing process: It saves your customer a considerable amount of money. Many cost factors are shared on the sheet to reduce the overall cost per job. Environmentally more friendly. Ganging jobs together uses paper more efficiently by filling up the sheet and thus reducing paper waste. This driven by economics since the more that is squeezed out of a sheet, the lower the cost. Gang runs biggest limitation is color output and can sometimes effect color output since multiple jobs are printed on the same sheets. The positive aspects of gang run printing definitely outweigh the limitations.
Domain Name Questions
How Do Domain Names Work?
Registering a domain doesn't automatically make your Web site appear when visitors enter your domain into a Web browser. You have to upload your Web site to a computer that hosts the site and assigns a numeric address, called an IP address, to your domain. Your domain and associated IP address are stored in a database with every other domain and associated IP address. When visitors enter your domain into a Web browser, your domain works like an address forwarding service by forwarding visitors to the IP address where your Web site is stored. We use domain names instead of IP addresses because most people find it easier to remember a name rather than a series of numbers.
