Starting your website project.

We're delighted to see you're considering our services. Our E-mail address is at the bottom of this page. If you'd like to skip straight to it, feel free to just scroll down - otherwise, you might want to read some tips for planning out your website first, as well as some candid advice on how to get your site made for very little money.

Planning your website
We recommend that you have a reasonably clear idea of where you want to go with your website before you contact us; that way, you know that your website will be your website, not just a website that we've made and you happen to own. Ultimately our goal is to make you happy with what we produce, so we'd like it to be as close to what you envision as possible.

We find that the best way to plan something out is to think of what you want the end result to be, and work backwards from there. If your objective is to sell thousands of little blue widgets, then think about the cogs and gears that need to be in place before that can happen - and everything will fall into place much more easily.

For some folks, a low-tech approach might be appropriate - just get a big A3 pad and some coloured pens or pencils, and draw a rough idea of what you imagine your website to look like. We'll then build on that rough idea together, and turn it into something both beautiful and functional.

If your project falls into any of the categories on the left, then you can find further and more specific information and tips on planning within those categories - just press the "Start" button with the appropriate category.

Alternatively, if you need help with planning, please don't hesitate to skip straight to the bottom of this page and drop us an E-mail!

How to get a £1,000 website for £200
A single, golden rule that applies to planning any type of website is "Have Everything Ready." Not necessarily when you contact us, but soon after - every aspect of your website that you want to do yourself should be ready to put into the site that we'll make for you. No matter whether you're a businessman, artist, musician, writer, blogger - it could mean photographs, promotional text, price lists, artwork, music, lyrics, data sheets, specifications.

You might want us to take care of some of that - we have cameras, we have writing expertise, we have recording equipment, we have all manner of machines and skills to help you. But the more content that you have ready to put into your website, the less you'll end up paying and the quicker it'll all be done.

Have it all in a folder - or, ideally, in digital form, ready to simply be nestled in amongst our code. This can make the difference between your website being ready in a couple of days and costing peanuts, and taking a couple of months and costing a fortune.

Gathering that amount of stuff together into one place and trying to organise it can be a hell of a task, but we're here to help - if you'd like some advice on how to do it and what sort of stuff you'll need, please don't hesitate to E-mail us. The address is at the bottom of this page. You don't even need to write down what you're having trouble with, just give us your phone number and we'll give you a ring.

Current Waiting List
The current waiting list for a new website project is... Nothing!

Last month was ridiculously hectic, but we managed to get everything finished on time. Now, for the first time in about six months, we've got nothing to do! This practically never happens, so if you want a website done sharpish, let us know as soon as you can, before the waiting list fills up again!

Contacting us
The easiest and fastest way to get in touch with us is by E-mail. Just send one off to info@stainless-design.co.uk, with a quick description of what you want to do. Include a phone number if you'd like us to give you a ring.

We like to come and see our clients in person before starting work on a project, and will always do so if you're within reasonable driving distance from Cheshire, England.

If you're overseas, we can always communicate via phone, E-mail, Instant Messaging or webcam and headset - just let us know what protocol you're comfortable with (MSN, ICQ, AOL, Skype, Gizmo, SIP, Yahoo, Jabber - just about anything, really) and we'll be happy to have a chat.

We look forward to hearing from you!
