Yes! You can choose an already existing template that we can custom design from or we can start from scratch and create a truly customized design for you.
How long does this process take?
Custom website design projects take anywhere from 6-12 weeks, but are contingent upon your timely communication through each phase of the process.
Do you offer a payment plan?
Typically we ask for full payment upfront and many of our clients prefer to not interrup the process. However, we also offer a payment plan in which we require a 50% deposit to kick-off your project and will invoice you the balance once we are at a halfway point. Our payment plan option does not carry any interest or fees of any kind.
Will I need to hire you for any updates and maintenance?
No. Once your website is live, we will provide you with a link for how to easily learn how to use Wix for any updates you need to make and for any future maintenance needs. One of the best features of the Wix editor is its easy drag-and-drop feature, which allow for seamless changes, edits, and updates.
Do I need to purchase my domain name and hosting service?
Yes. Your domain name and hosting service must be purchased by the client and can be done through Wix. Once you book your website project, we will happily walk you through the process.
What are your business hours?
Our business hours are Monday - Friday, 9 am to 6 pm EST.
Do your websites include a built-in e-commerce shop?
Yes! All of our custom design websites include an e-commerce store with unlimited products. Our website fee includes up to 10 styles, but if your collection features more than 10 styles, we can add your remaining styles for an additional fee.
