Trying to explain all the services we provide often ends up with us waving our hands in the air, yelling 'yes we do that!'.
We're a design and creative services company. We're a website design company. We're a printing company, a direct mail company and a wide-format and signage company. Among other things.
We're excellent graphic designers. We know this because we win awards for our work. We keep them in a cardboard box with the words 'Box o' Awards' written on the side. You can see them if you want, and if we can find the box. It's not that we don't care about awards, its just that we're more interested in the next project, and what sort of challenges it comes with. We complain about those challenges, but secretly (not too secretly obviously), we love em.
We design and build great websites. Large websites. Small websites. We build them from scratch, or using an open source CMS. We build the kind of websites you think you have to go to a large town to get, and we build them cheaper than you might think. Sometimes these web design projects cost a lot of money. More often, they don't. We've never come across a website we can't build, or a problem we can't solve. We can tackle your SEO (that's search engine optimization if you care) and your social media. Seriously.
Need that soon-to-be-award-winning design printed? No problem. We have multiple 1 & 2 color presses, a large and intimidating 5 color press, and digital presses for your variable data projects. We can print big too. When we talk about wide-format printing, we really mean it. Like, 10.5 feet wide. Or maybe you want to print directly onto a door. We can do that too, with our 4'x8' flatbed printer. Those single quotes mean feet, just in case you're wondering.
Maybe you need to mail your print materials (I'm assuming we're not talking about the 10.5 x 40 ft. banner). No worries, we'll take care of that for you too.
We do statements, statements with stuffers, statements with return envelopes, and generally any other kind of statement you can think of. We can use our Variable Data services to create one-of-a-kind customized mail for each of your customers that speaks directly to them and we'll send it on it's merry way. Unless it's a bill... I mean we'll still send it, but it won't be nearly as merry.
We'll also help you build your mailing list if you need. If you want to send a postcard to everyone named Neil, that drives a pickup truck within 200 miles of Nashville, we can do that. We could make that happen Neil.
We know how to take a pretty picture, and how to take a lot of them really fast so they appear to be moving. We know about sound, and we know how to write content that doesn't make your eyes glaze over. We do so much that it can be difficult to remember it all.
And here's the thing. The thing that we think matters. All of this, every single thing we've talked about, is done in-house. No third-party vendors, no out-sourcing. no free-lancing.
We do it all. Come by, ask for a tour and we'll show you.
Great web design is more that putting text and pictures into a template. At least, it should be. It's not enough to be able to make somehing look good using someone else's hard work. We code from scratch, even when we build on top of a Content Management System. We understand the code we write, and if something breaks we know how to fix it. We contribute code back to the developer community, and we learn new stuff all the time.
If your web designer can't get under the hood, then when the inevitable breakdown occurs, you're left standing at the side for the road waiting for a tow truck. How's that for a metaphor?!?
