I made a few changes to it. Share the good, the bad, and the ugly. I want to make sure the website is working for my father and I, and not hindering us.<p>Thanks!<p><A HREF="http://www.sweetgfx.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.sweetgfx.com</A><p>and also linked in my signature <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Let me know what you guys think (GiRaff3)

Looks good. The Terms Of Service is kinda scary looking...and on the first page after entering there is a word missing on the caliper sentence. Besides that it is a good-looking site, looks better than it did before. Keep it up! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Let me know what you guys think (GiRaff3)

Sorry, I meant to say the main Volvo page. Where it is talking about the Rs on the calipers, $25 for a set of 5, you leave out the word "one" when you say "set of (5) Vinyl Caliper Rs in [one] of our colors." I have this annoying habit of being able to catch the slightest typo, but unlike JRL I try to be nice about it, lol. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Super fast editing. Keep up the good work, I will probably have you do some custom vinyl stuff for me in the future.

Why do you have a terms of service agreement as your entrance page? It's really just throwing a hurdle between you can the client/customer. Could you imagine having to sign an agreement before you entered into the mall, or a mcdonalds?

Re: (GiRaff3)

Looks good Bob. The Home page has a weird overlap of the "Welcome to SweetGFX.xom" and the opening paragraph, but it could be my settings.<p>I like the style of it though, looks more "hip". <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (GiRaff3)

When you mean "shipped" does that mean CONUS, all 50 states, or globally? You indicate international orders are possible, but the shipped price might come back to bite you. You might want to specify what you mean, and way you ship - UPS, USMail, 1st class. Just something to think about.<p>Also, on each page, you ought to have a tab called "home" taking you to your main front page.

I think it'd be cool to repurpose the photo gallery as customer showcase. Customers would feel encouraged to submit photos of your products, and you'd have even more evidence of how sweet your work is. You could include a customer comments section as well, so that potential customers would have an idea of what others are saying about you. Maybe you could wrap both of those ideas into one "guestbook" of sorts--customers submit pictures and captions to go with them.<p>I'm clearly not a web-developer, so if these suggestions suck, my humble apologies.
