availability of your domain name at Network
Domain name ____________________________
___Desired ___Already Registered
4. Masthead Graphic
It is very
helpful if you will include a copy of your company's letterhead, brochures,
catalog, etc. so we can see how you present your company image.
__ Company Logo incorporated in the masthead graphic? If so, please
enclose a color copy.
__ Photo or drawing of product?
__ Typeface preference __________________________________________
__ Preferred colors
in palette (PMS colors?) _______________________________________
__ Other ideas _________________________________________________________
5. Color and Accents
most part, we recommend a white background for best readability and contrast,
with a band of color or a pattern running down the left margin of the
webpage. Your preference:
May we include a
link at the bottom of the welcome page which reads "Professionally
Designed by Prite Web Development"?
(You are under no obligation to say yes.) ___Yes ___No
6. Navigation System
system of all our Standard Website Packages includes:
- Links from
the front page and sectional pages to every page in the system to enable
Web search engines to "spider" and index content on every page.
- Colored bar
"Image Map" with a brief word or two indicating each page -- or,
in larger sites -- each section of the website. This appears at the
bottom of every page. In some sites we put this both top and bottom.
You are limited to a maximum of about eight (8) selections on this image
map. We use server side image maps to make it easy to expand the site
at a later time without having to change the coding on each page of
the site. For this reason, and to keep costs down, we do not include
separate "buttons" on our standard sites. Included in sites of 6 pages
- Left-Side Menus
with text links are especially useful on larger sites. Included in sites
of 6 pages or more. They can allow more detail than an 8-item bottom
image map, and can enable visitors to see from any page how to get to
any other. These may be white or light-colored over a dark left-side
color or pattern, or black or dark over a light left-side color or pattern.
Circle those you wish incorporated in your site.
- Left-Side "Buttons"
can be used, but we do not recommend them, since they are more expensive
and time consuming to maintain when a change or addition is made to
the system. Also, it takes significantly longer to load many buttons
than an image map of the same area (Extra charge)
- Frames System
where, typically, a scrolling menu remains on the left side to provide
navigation. We do not recommend frames in practically any situation,
since they are a design disaster. They do not always print out, cannot
be bookmarked easily, and often make the page design look "tacky" with
their ugly gray scroll bars. We see them as the amateur's way to look
cool. In a very few cases, they are useful: (1) to display large databases
of information, (2) purposely hide URLs of content pages, (3) send visitors
to other sites while making it easy for them to come back. (Extra charge)
- Search Engine
is useful on larger sites of 20+ pages to help visitors quickly find
what they're looking for. (Extra charge)
7. Basic Page Elements
These are the important
items which appear on nearly every webpage on your site (except the "home"
- Page titles
which show at top of Web browser only
graphic based on the design of the masthead graphic
- Page Title
in larger type. Heading Font Style: ________________ (recommend Arial

8. Photos, Graphics,
Animations, Sound, and Video
Our contract includes
a statement that you own the copyright to, or have permission from the
copyright owner to use any photos or graphics you send us.
For an extra charge,
we can equip your webpages with:
tends to look a bit tacky on websites. We recommend photos.
- Photos you
supply either by sending the photos themselves for us to scan and return,
or by sending the digitized images on a diskette in a JPEG (.jpg), GIFF
(.gif) PDF, or PNG format.

9. Response Forms
What is the purpose
of your response form?
for visitors to record comments
__ Request for information
__ Survey of customer preferences
Note: We do
not set up sites that use the response form as an order form, since these
require secure servers, and secure order pick-up. Orders forms may be
used to send an e-mail message for a representative to contact them about
a certain item or service. Payments will not be sent online. This is not
very effective for successful e-commerce. For one or two products we recommend
using ShopSite Lite or Paypal® with a secure server. We charge extra
to set up the ordering system.
10. Web Hosting
not in the web hosting business. We recommend to our clients web hosting
services tailored to their specific needs. We've worked with dozens of
hosting services -- the good, the bad, and the ugly. We usually do not
recommend hosting on your local dial-up ISP, since they too often are
not well-prepared to meet specialized business site hosting needs. Their
main business is usually dial-up access, and hosting is only a sideline
for them. Please let us recommend a Web host service for you. We require
cgi-bin access and FTP access, and strongly recommend telnet access. Our
no-extra-cost response form also requires a Unix or NT system with Perl
