In order to give you an accurate estimate on designing, redesigning or maintaining your website, we will ask you to fill out a client survey that will give us a better idea of what you are looking for. After we receive your completed survey, we will e-mail or call you with any questions that we may have. We will then put together a proposal for you listing out your requirements and the estimated time and cost it will take to complete the work.

What Our Clients Have to Say

    New York Times Bestselling Author

    I've worked with Web Crafters over 15 years. Shelley's creative, smart, responsive and reliable. Whether it's a complete re-do or weekly updates, I know the work will be done brilliantly and on time. Everyone wants a presence on the web, but finding the right company to design the right presence can be daunting. Web Crafters is always there for me.

    USA TODAY Bestselling Author

    Web Crafters has been my lifeline to the web for more than 15 years. Their work is creative, innovative and always done on time. As a writer, I know what kind of presence I want on the internet, but have no idea how to do it for myself. That's where Web Crafters comes in. Whether it's a complete redesign or the many necessary updates during the year, I know that Web Crafters will always be there to get the job done right.

    Bestselling Author

    Whether it's website design or artwork for advertisements and promotional items, I always run to Web Crafters. And they always deliver. 100%."

    V.K. SYKES
    Bestselling Author

    Web Crafters, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways! First, I love their beautiful, sleek, imaginative designs. Shelley took my sometimes incoherent instructions and vague feedback and designed gorgeous, easy to navigate websites that exemplify my author brand. Second, I love the speedy response time in posting updates or making changes. (Continued to right)

    V.K. SYKES
    Bestselling Author

    On more than one occasion, I have forgotten to do updates and the Web Crafters staff always do their best to get things posted in a timely fashion. Third, I love how Web Crafter's solves problems. No email goes unanswered, no concern is ignored, and the staff never lose their patience. For me, Web Crafters is the gold standard in service. One of the best decisions I made as a published author was to hire Web Crafters to design and manage my websites.

    USA TODAY Bestselling Author

    Web Crafters? Simply the best! I loved the first site Shelley designed for me. I love my new site even more—and I love knowing my website updates will go up on time and exactly the way I want them.
