When it comes to Web design, A PICTURE PERFECT WEB SITE ALONE DOES NOT GUARANTEE SUCCESS. Appearance is important but the graphic design is only the beginning. An SEO Web design PLUS a User-Centered Web Design rewards your investment with more visitors and enable you to make more sales.

A Web site that includes both Search Engine Optimization and a User-Centered design will be found and make sales. With SEO, Your web site will be found In the search engines for the products or services you are selling and and user-centered design will work to convert your visitors into customers.

Creating a Web site without SEO (search engine optimization) is like planning, cooking for and decorating for a big dinner party and not sending invitations to the guests.

I like to work from the design questionnaire that I send out for custom designs. Discussing design ideas on the telephone works better for many people. I am available to discuss custom designs on the telephone. Contact me through your Etsy Conversation area to set up a time to talk.

The price of a custom web design includes three rounds of design revisions. All design revisions are taken care of before Web pages and the content, text and images, are added. Additional revisions are available for an additional fee - the amount of the fee depends on the revision needed and how much of the Website has been developed. Complete changes in design direction will require a redesign fee.

All designs are original and © WingsDove 2008 - 2014. Do not copy or alter my designs in any way without permission.


TIME FRAME for all Etsy Shop SEO Guidebooks - are sent by email within 24 business hours of your purchase.

TIME FRAME for all CUSTOM ETSY SHOP SEO purchases: allow 15 - 20 business days to receive your SEO report and recommendations for your shop. Allow additional time when I make the changes for you.

TIME FRAME for all READY-MADE WEB DESIGN TEMPLATE purchases: allow 10 business days to receive your customized purchase.

TIME FRAME for all CUSTOM SEO AND DESIGN purchases: The average turn-around time for custom Web designs depends on the size and scope of the Web design and development project. Small Web sites can be completed within 4 - 6 weeks and larger Web sites especially those that include ecommerce, will take longer, usually 6 - 12 weeks. Once the design is complete and accepted by you, the remaining work depends on the amount of time it takes both the client and myself to add the content of the web site as well as our back and forth communication.

The amount of time it takes to complete the whole CUSTOM Web design order usually depends both on the size of the order, the number of projects I am working on, the readiness of the customer with text and photos for the Web site and the time it takes to communicate back and forth. INTERNATIONAL ORDERS may take several days or longer due to time zone differences which results in lack of real time communication.

RUSH CUSTOM DESIGN orders can sometimes be accommodated depending on the number of projects I am working on. Contact me through Etsy Conversations (up near the top of this web page) to ask about this.



Payment for Custom Web Design packages can be made in full or in 2 payments. Let me know if you would like to make 2 payments before you make a purchase and I will create a custom listing for you that allows you to pay in parts.

Once you let me know which package you are interested in, I will create multiple custom listings for you, each for a part of the total purchase price. You only need to pay for one of these to begin the work on your Web site. The other payments will be due at other stages in the design and development process.

Payments for SEO Guidebooks can be made through PayPal or Direct Checkout.

Payments, in full or in part, are only accepted through PayPal. Contact me if this is presents a problem for you.

Custom Web Designs can be canceled and the time spent on the design and development will be deducted from the amount paid. The balance will be refunded.


WEB DESIGN: With the exception of e-commerce web sites, the design and development of your Web site will be done on a directory on my Web site at The completed Web site will be uploaded to your Web hosting service when the project is complete. You can also choose to have the complete web site, if it's not too large, sent to you by email in a zipped format and you can then unzip and upload your own web site.

A copy of all the design graphics are sent to the client in zipped format as well as uploaded and applied to the Web site.

GUIDEBOOKS will be sent by email to the email address that comes with your order from Etsy. Guidebooks are usually sent out within a few hours of purchase but the turnaround time might be longer on Holidays and weekends.
