Prices

We pride ourselves on the fair approach to the prices charged for the services we offer, and by keeping our business comparatively small, but big enough to deal with any requirements, we’re grateful to be able to work with proportionally low overheads.

We are always happy to offer a free quotation or discussion of your requirements, and are happy to discuss some simple ideas to improve your website with no obligation.

The packages below are a fair representation of the types of costs involved. However, even with significant experience in this area, costs can vary depending on the project requirements.  We therefore keep communication lines open at all times, and discuss with you what new ideas you bring may add or subtract from the costs.

To check how your existing website is doing with regard to accessibility and web standards, you can freely check out the following links:

Your website should ‘Validate’ to to have no errors or warnings.

Although we can supply you with uniquely commissioned images at very reasonable rates through our partner photography company, and you have access to tens of thousands of images through our image library that comes free with most of our hosting packages, for an additional range of comparatively cheap images (for web use only), you might also be interested in buying some images for yourself through iStockPhoto.


Existing Website Redevelopment – Package One:

This is ideal if you have an existing website, you like the main content and look & feel, but you want or need the site updated to pure accessible coding.

Additional Charges:

Where you’re requirements go beyond our normal pricing structure, (ie for materials, printing, etc.) these will also be pre-agreed with you, prior to any work carried out.

We always seek out the best and cheapest options available for things like hosting, domain names, website submissions, add-on products, etc.

We also believe in rounding down, not up, for our services. If it takes less time than we expected to complete your particular project (which it often does), we reduce your charges accordingly!

Similarly, if it takes us a little bit longer to complete a certain task (through no fault of your own), then we absorb those costs ourselves.

Why can’t all businesses work this way?


*Delivery Time – This is subject to availability, but we know we can consistently complete these types of projects within these time-scales.

*Prices – The price will depend upon the complexity of the project, which will be advised to you at the outset. All prices exclude VAT at the current rate.

We can work to a set budget (and thus accept only minimal variations to an approved design), or advise you if your ongoing variations may exceed your assigned budget.
