Packages & Pricing

Welcome! I am a local Maine website designer who has clients worldwide and would love to work with you! I specialize in affordable, custom, beautiful design.

Deposits/Reservations:

A deposit of 50% of package price is required on all packages  AT THE TIME OF RESERVATION. I book 3+ months in advance and this deposit holds your spot in line.

NO REFUNDS are given unless I have to cancel the project. I am more than happy to put your project on hold if something comes up that you can not work with me during your particular reservation time. If, after work has begun, you are not happy with the work and wish to discontinue working with me the second half of the package price will not be due but your original deposit is non-refundable. It covers reserving your time/place in line and all work up to installation of the design.

Rush Spots:

If I have space available and you would like a rush spot they are $200 in addition to the package price and the $200 is due upon reservation. Rush spots mean we start within the current 30 day period. No guarantees are made about completion dates/install.

ONLY FOR SELF-HOSTED WORDPRESS BLOGS

I will install your website or blog on wordpress with Genesis theme and install your graphics. I do not re-size them or change any colors/fonts.

You must have all graphics already prepared. I install header, background, blog button, social media buttons, post divider, favicon, post signature & if necessary change theme colors to match (links, navigation, etc). If you did not create the graphics I will need the name & url of the designer who did and I will personally contact them to make sure they allow the use of the graphics by another designer.

NO design work is done.

How long does it take? If you have everything all ready and hosting purchased then it takes approximately 3 days. There is no wait list for DIY packages-I do them as soon as I can.

 

Blog Transfer | $80

(unless it is part of a design package)

This is a transfer of blog content & install of wordpress on your self-hosted server. I can transfer blogger.com blogs & wordpress.com blogs. If you need to purchase hosting please let me know when you order this package. I give a discount on the package price if you purchase through my affiliate link to bluehost.

NO design work is done. I transfer posts, pages, comments & any non-blogger/free wordpress specific widgets. Please provide me with any ad network code, anayltics code and the directions on how to install them/where they should be placed.

How long does it take? If you have everything all ready and hosting purchased then it takes approximately 3 days. There is no wait list for platform transfers-I do them as soon as I can.

Site Maintenance Subscription | $35 per month

After your package is installed you might find that you would like another plugin installed or a navigation item changed. You might need a portfolio page set up or product plugin installed. Need a party graphic or a new ad button? For a $35 per month recurring subscription my design & coding services will be ‘on-call’ for you (during normal business hours-found here). This $35 charge is equal to one hour of work & it does not transfer month to month. If you don’t need my services that month the fee still stands as this is a retainer. Anything beyond this hour will be billed at $35 per hour with a half-hour minimum required. Know you want me ‘on-call’ every month long term? Then choose the year long subscription for a $20 discount.

Limited slots available so cancellations of monthly & yearly subscriptions require a 30 day notice. NO refunds given for monthly subscriptions-even if no work has been done-no exceptions. Refunds of months (not yet reached in the calendar year) on yearly subscriptions will be given with a $50 cancellation fee taken from remaining balance. i.e. If you purchase a yearly subscription in January and decide to cancel it in June you will receive a refund on July-December with $50 deducted.
