Their original website was built on WordPress. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but a site focusing on several hundred products with customizable purchases needed a platform set up to handle an ever-scaling inventory with various checkout functions.
WordPress does come with eCommerce functionality courtesy of WooCommerce, but we recommend utilizing this plugin when a good portion of the site is informational, containing more readable content than products (WooCommerce doesn’t scale as easily as Shopify).
This is how we helped:
We recreated it on the Shopify platform, improved the design, helped them solidify their brand image and implemented plugins that would allow their customers to purchase both custom and personalized items.
We made sure the website was responsive — that it scaled itself according to the size of the viewing device (smartphone, tablet, Tricorder, etc.).
And those plugins “that would allow their customers to purchase both custom and personalized items”? Online visitors can now add or choose their own art with an intuitive system that creates a custom item from conception to completion.
We used graphic design to create unique on-site images promoting staff and their friendly, print-savvy, and science fiction-adoring attitudes.
