    I found it irritating. Anytime I click on a decal to see it on its own page then click back to see the others, I get taken back to the Home page. Left site after 2 views. I'd fix that, and make browsing decals more user-friendly, and make the decal previews better looking. On my browser the decals look really bad, possibly because they're displayed at 33% or 66% or some odd number (they look perfect when viewed on their own page though).

    I'd probably ditch the black background for a cleaner white one too. I think most consumers feel happier shopping on a light backdrop, and more trusting too.

    Just my opinion ofc

    Overall looks nice, however

    Order page looks really shady
    Flash = fail

    It needs a grammar and spell check.
    The pattern background is too heavy and makes the text hard to read
    The fact you require a bank transfer of funds before sending any work out means you won't get any work (unless they're stupid or know you) due to their being no security if your order does not arrive - you need an online payment option.
    All the images look like they are photoshopped rather than being some actual photo's of work.
    There's no information regarding terms and conditions, what happens if you receive faulty goods etc
    Contact details are in about - change the header or say a little more about you.

    It just isn't professional enough for a person/company trying to sell things in my opinion, I just wouldn't trust it.

    I'd say get rid of it entirely. Too distractive.

    I agree with posters above. A good start but it looks rather sketchy. You really do need to make the artwork (decals) more professional looking. Do some actual mock ups and take high resolution pictures as suggested. Create a gallery.

    Also, I agree with the online payment option. At the very least, you should offer PayPal, if not Visa/Mastercard.

    Here is a small business that has a simple, yet effective layout. Although I am not a big fan of the vertical scroll, everything is farily easy to find and most importantly is looks/feels professional/secure.

    Website development

    ;) Another misplaced (?) thread.
    There is a separate forum for web design and development.

    And now it automagically appears where it belongs. Thanks.
