  • My new digital stamps website

    So, I finally put together my new website for digital stamps! I'd really appreciate any feedback. It's at http://www.handmadeharbour.co.uk

    It's brand new, and I'm aware some sections might not be as populated as others yet...but I'm hoping to add new stuff every week.

    I'm also going to be putting together a design team of cardmakers/papercrafters, which I will announce on the Handmade Harbour blog soon.

    Forgot to mention: I'm selling sewing patterns on there too, plus a few of my one-off handmade items (mainly things I've designed for craft magazines). I'm not sure it will all work together (let me know what you think...)

      Its a little basic, have you tried weebly?

      Its free to use and it lets you get used to html, but has some great drag and drop features

        Sorry - there was a problem with the Create site. It all seems fixed now.

        I don't really want a free website, but thanks for the information. I know Create has a lot of features I'm not using at the moment - it has only just gone live and there's still a lot I need to do with it.

        I'm a bit worried by what you mean about it being basic, though... I'm not sure what about it is looking too basic?

                  Hi Wendy,

                  clever - very clever! There are couple of things I would do differently (but that's just me - so it don't worry if you don't agree!).

                  The front page doesn't look like a front page. Try to play around with the layout to make it look more interesting. I'm keen crafts person, but I didn't quite understood what you try to sell (maybe an explanation in laymans terms might help or even some sort of visual explanation of how you use the stamps). Small thing - I did work it out eventually...

                  Background website paper - I know, what you trying to do here, but it's different shade of blue/gray then your header and I think it distract from the rest.

                  The shop - try the other option for shop layout - with the price and buy button on the top-right side. People won't need to scroll down to buy. (if it's their third or fourth stamp they want they will only look at the image and buy straightaway)

                  Would you design a custom made stamp or image? I think, that could be your next step!

                  Good luck !

                    Oh, and by the way - weebly is O.K., but it's what it is - free looks pretty basis and if you want to get the same features that Create offers, you pay more in the end!

                    The only 'free made yourself website' that looks good is Wordpress, but you still need to pay more for additional features (domain, your name, shop, social pluggings etc).

                    The only limitations with Create I can see, that no matter what you do it still looks like a 'home made website' and most of the templates are very dated. I think I have done with it what I can, but I'm still not sure....

                      Me, again....

                      I can't find an obvious link from the blog to your website. It that deliberate?

                        Interesting - but yes, I agree. I know not everyone understands digi stamps yet. The background paper was something I wasn't sure about and really want a custom one but haven't got there yet! I want to redesign the header too, but that will have to wait.

                        You are so right. I think functionality and product are the two most important things - and not offending with flashing images and garish colours!

                        Nope, not deliberate - just not got round to it yet!! I am trying to do too many things at once, I think...(as usual!)

                            I came to the thread because I didn't know what digital stamps were..... then I went to your website and it says you sell digital stamps. Still no idea what they are/how people use them

                            Think I've got it now ..... so it's an image for people to print out and glue to their stuffs
                            I don't make stuffs

                            Nice website though!

                              Thank you! I need to make it clearer what digi stamps are, don't I?!

                              I wrote a blog post here explaining what they are, just in case anyone else is wondering: http://handmadeharbour.blogspot.co.u...tal-stamp.html
