We can help you choose the right solution to suit your needs and your budget.

Squarespace Websites
We build simpler sites and blogs on Squarespace, a leading hosted website service. Their platform provides customizable responsive site templates, easy-to-use editing tools, site hosting, maintenance and backup for a single monthly or annual fee. E-commerce support is available as well.

Shopify Websites
We build larger shopping sites using Shopify, a full-featured hosted E-commerce website service. Their platform shares many of the advantages of Squarespace and includes additional tools and capabilities for building online stores. They also support point-of-sale systems for merchants who also have a brick-and-mortar sales channel.

Drupal Websites
We build more complex sites and web applications on Drupal, a powerful and comprehensive open source content management system. Unlike lighter-weight solutions such as WordPress, a website built using Drupal is fully scalable to grow with your business. There are thousands of pre-existing free software components for this platform which can be combined to implement almost anything that you might require of your site. With a large and growing international community of Drupal developers, more options are added every day. If the functionality that you need doesn't exist, we can create it for you.

We use E-commerce software that will integrate your web store seamlessly into your web site. This ensures that it uses your site's branding, and that your site will receive search engine credit for your store's content. We work with both the Drupal Commerce and Ubercart E-commerce packages for Drupal and the integrated E-commerce support provided by Squarespace and Shopify.

Web Applications
Beyond E-commerce, you may require additional custom business functions from your website. Drupal can handle these with ease. Here are some examples that we've provided to our clients:

  • event registration
  • college scholarship application/review system
  • custom databases, such as organization member information
  • different content and features for different site users
  • purchaseable levels of site resource access with automatic renewal
  • flexible content categorization and searching
  • automated import/export of data from/to external databases
  • client-specified rule-based site behavior

Need custom functionality from your website? Ask us about how we can make it happen.

Any CMS website is a software application which requires periodic updates to maintain its security and proper function. Squarespace and Shopify provide this as part of their hosting platform. For Drupal, we offer an inexpensive maintenance service to take care of it for you.

Conversions and Upgrades
If you have a website that you'd like to convert to Squarespace, Shopify or Drupal, we'd be happy to discuss that with you. Outgrown your WordPress or Joomla site? We can replace it with a Drupal site that will give you much more room to grow. We can also upgrade outdated or unmaintained Drupal sites, or modify those with non-responsive themes to be responsive. Contact us to find out more.

  • "I have very much enjoyed working with you -- appreciate your expertise, creativity, speed in responding to any and all questions, and especially your patience.

  • "I love our website - especially working on it because you've made it so easy to add content and pictures and change prices and descriptions. I've been on a lot of what I think of as clunky monkey sites and ours feels like smooth mint ice cream. Our customers love it as well - I'm surprised at how often they mention this to us. They show up with printouts and lists they created from it and they look at it on their cell phones when they're wandering around looking at plants. This phone feature also saves us having to explain everything to them again since they can access it on their own.

    Plus - your incredible patience working with us, answering our questions and sending screen shots to show us graphically just how to do it. You both have saved us hours and hours of agony that came with our old site and for this we are very grateful."
