Website Starter Kit

$1895
(2-part payment plan available)

This package includes everything you need to get your website up and running. The package includes the pages every business needs: home, about, contact, and services. Plus FREE BONUS BLOG PAGE set up! Clients and I collaborate to create a story board with a custom color palette, fonts, and specially selected photos, so your site is as unique as your business vision.

“But what if I need more?” you ask. No worries! You can customize, add, and alter to your heart’s content for an additional charge. Once the site is complete, I will be available for updates when needed. Also, I can provide PDF tutorials so you can learn to manage certain things on your own, like your blog.

“Working with Margaret was a stress-free and efficient process to a high quality end service. After just one initial conversation over the phone and a few brief questions over email, Margaret delivered a high quality first draft after just a few days.”
Eli Kiffel, www.kcgproperties.co

A collaborative story board that we create together where I select fonts, pictures, and colors to communicate your work and your brand. In the end, we will have a snapshot of your visuals to use once we dive into site building. (click image to expand)

Book Design

I specialize in designing children’s books, although I love helping all kinds of authors. Making a book is exciting, and every project is different. Depending on where you are in the process, some books need a lot of extra love to get to print, and some are a breeze. Check out the services below to see which are a good fit for you and your book. Please note these prices only apply to children’s picture books up to 40 pages.

“Margaret is a true professional and I couldn’t be happier with the quality and creativity she has brought to my children’s book series. It’s her expertise, customer service, and integrity that have made my publishing experience so great!”
L.A. Fielding, www.thextails.com
