Our New Website!
By now you’ve probably noticed that things look a little different around PPSBend.com. In 2009 we launched our last website, a lot has changed since then so we thought it was time to update. In this post we will go over some of the new features as well as fresh content that we have created in an effort to serve you better.
First and foremost, the website is easy to use on desktop computers as well as smartphones and tablet devices. The navigation at the top of the page is always at your finger tips even when scrolling down to the bottom of a page. Also, at the very top our address, phone number and social contacts are always there instead of requiring a click to the contact page. On the contact page however, we’ve added additional contact information as well as an interactive map that is mobile ready, just tap the address and your Maps app will open and be ready to provide instant navigation.
Updated Products & Ordering:
Our homepage showcases popular marketing products including business cards, brochures, rack cards and more. Each product page includes useful information such as available paper types, product sizes and product specific details. In addition, you can order right from the product page by clicking the “Place an Order” button which will allow you to send us all of the order details and corresponding digital files. You will receive an order confirmation, we’ll get the order details and files so we can start processing the order immediately. If we have any questions or concerns we will be able to contact you from the information provided in the order form. Some products will also include “Request for Quote” buttons which works very similar to the order system, however it will generate the details necessary for us to put together an accurate quote.
Send A File:
Our “Send A File” system has been a staple for processing orders for the last few years. We have updated the file uploader to accommodate multiple files easier. Click the “Select Files” button and you can select as many files you need to send. Once the file or files are selected click “OK” and you will see the file transfer will begin. Once the progress counter reaches 100%, a red X will appear next to the file, which allows you to remove the specified file from the upload if it was the wrong file or you meant to select a different one. No more wondering if the file has completed its upload! Also, once you click submit, there is a “Success” page to confirm that the files and form entries were sent. Another new feature is Mobile Uploads, via iPad or other tablet device as well as smartphones. Although this feature is generally reserved for sending photos only, it’s perfect for ordering photo prints or PremierWraps canvas prints of your mobile device photos.
Business Card Designer:
Now you can design a business card right from our website using our MakeMeCards business card designer. This amazing little design software allows you to choose from thousands of industry specific backgrounds and images, various text layouts, you can add in your own logo, make a 2 sided card, change fonts, font sizes, text colors, add shadows and more. Once your card design is completed you can select In-Store pickup or Shipping options and online checkout can be completed through PayPal using your PayPal account or a credit/debit card without a PayPal account.
Ever wonder what we mean when we say “Does the file have bleeds?” Well our FAQ section has the answers to this as well as lots of other frequently asked questions.
We have an all new way to order canvas photo prints. An easy to use canvas builder allows you to choose which options you want to effectively build your own custom photo canvas. We have added some custom layout options including panel canvases and mosaic layouts. Also, a new drag and drop uploader makes it really easy to send us multiple photos at once. You can open a window with your photos, select all the photos you need and then drag them right into the uploader box.
We’ve added a great way for you to tell us how we did. We need feedback from our customers so we can improve how we do things. Our testimonials page has some feedback from customers we work with, but it also has a form so you can submit your own feedback. Also, you can like us on Facebook, and give us a review on Google
In addition to the features and items listed above there is quite a bit more information about the print products we offer. Thank you for taking the time to visit the new website. We’re looking forward to adding additional content and features and also want to hear our customers feedback. If there is a feature you feel would be nice to have please let us know.
