putting my money where my mouth is...

So i had narrowed the field down. One, a supermarket shelf type but purchaser driven, web compliant and somewhat individually tailored e-commerce web and logo development company. They're based in another state and run carbon neutral and support lots of female web developers. The other, a boutique 'green' business consultancy located about 100m from home with an amazing approach, fully customised 'we build your whole web business from the gound up' based web developer with an integrated waste system, green powered, carbon neutral, 100% recycled everything except the macs and telephones, practice. Its not hard to guess which one i really wanted to work with.

When push came to shove however, the difference in price of over $7000 kinda made my mind up for me. Yes, their designs are exemplary, exquisite in fact. Sigh, but thats a whole lotta bags!

Hi there- we also had a similar 'issue' and if it serves as consolation, on the long term to go with a content management system that is not customised is safer- if the company closes down you are not stuck if you have a more commercial version...or so says my boss (the funds supplier)...

i forgot to add yesterday that if you you have trouble with the company on the graphic design front and need help getting your ideas from paper into a digital format that the company can use i can probably help you out.
good luck!
