Q: Can you input my logo into a template design?

Q: How many concepts will I see for my Web ite?
A: This depends on the Package you choose. The Standard & Premium Packages use pre-existing templates (which we customize for your business), therefore the template you choose will be your only graphic design concept. If you choose the Professional package your designer will initially supply you with one (1) composition (concept). This is to ensure the direction we are taking is the right one. From this initial composition, you will have the opportunity to revise several times (see next question).
Q: What does it mean by revisions?
A: A revision constitutes any change, big or small, requested to the graphic design of your online store (template or custom made). After we present you the initial customized design of your store (with your logo, colors, fonts, etc), you'll have a chance to make changes to your design by contacting your website designer. Each change, feedback and request (per communication) will count towards your revision process.
Q: Do you use stock images when I cannot find my own?
A: Yes. We have a library of stock imagery that we can use throughout your design to depict your business. Our library is limited and specific image requests may require the purchase of a third-party image. Please ask your designer about what images we can provide.
Q: Do you create Flash animations? How about drop-down menus or rollover images?
A: We do, but dynamic design features will need to be purchased as pay-as-you-go features or acquired with the purchase of the Professional Package. Please discuss your specific needs with your project manager.
