If you ever need to output the absolute directory path, just use <?php echo get_stylesheet_directory(); ?> This will output the hosting absolute path rather than a URL. If you want the URI just make a minor change by adding uri like so. <?php echo get_stylesheet_directory_uri(); ?>

Dr Pepper Heritage Packaging

I try not to drink a lot of soda but I have this ‘thing’ for Dr Pepper. A few months back they came out with Heritage Dr Pepper in retro packaging and it soon disappeared from store shelves.

Heritage Dr Pepper

I try not to drink a lot of soda but I have this ‘thing’ for Dr Pepper. A few months back they came out with Heritage Dr Pepper  in retro packaging and it soon disappeared from store shelves.

While I was out shopping today, I was quite surprised to see a new 125th Anniversary Dr Pepper!

I love the retro style packaging so I thought I would share for inspiration. Here are a few pictures of the packaging.

How Much Does a Website Cost?

How much does it cost is a very popular question. We often get calls or emails where the potential client just wants a price without giving any details of the project. They say it’s just a website! Well, to be honest there is no set price. Sure we have can give a very rough ballpark estimate but that might not be anywhere close to your actual cost.

It’s all in the details!
We aren’t looking to steal your idea for the next big web 3.0 site. We don’t even need to know what it is unless you hire us. We just need the specifics of the job to give you a price. For example, are you selling something? Do you need to be able to update the site yourself? Does it need to be design intensive? Do you need a photo gallery? Are you providing an online service? Will it require people to register with the site? Do you need a logo? All of these things can affect the cost of your project.

We specialize in working with small to medium sized businesses. We can work with you to come up with a solution that works with your budget and gets you online.

I hope this little bit of information helps you out! Feel free to contact us if you would like to know more or to get a quote!

I Need A Website!

When we receive a request for a quote, we usually get ” I need a website” . I’m pretty sure you do need a website or something related since you are contacting us!

When we receive a request for a quote, we usually get ” I need a website” .  I’m pretty sure you do need a website or something related since you are contacting us!  We do need a little more information to be able to provide you with a good quote. Here are some guidelines to consider before requesting a quote:

  1. Think about the budget for your project.  Websites are a marketing tool just like print materials(Brochures, Newsletters, Sale Flyers, Print ads etc.), and Broadcasts(TV/Radio).
  2. Provide as much detail as possible!  We need to know more than “I need a website”. Are you going to be selling something online, etc.
  3. Have somewhat of an idea of what you want to achieve from your website. Do you have a unique selling point (USP)? Do you know your target audience?
  4. How soon do you need it?

These are just a few of the items you should think about before requesting a quote. If you want your site to work for you, give it some thought like you did when you started your business. Done properly, this could increase your sales tremendously!
