It Was a Beautiful Sunday at the Lucky Squirrel – and We Have the Pictures to Prove It

The Garden City Lucky Squirrel flea market and craft fair was postponed for a day due to weather, but Sunday’s event was a rousing success. The Squirrel is hosted by one of our web clients, the Garden City Downtown Development Authority, so we were on hand to document the goings-on.

Check out the photos here, or view the entire DDA website here.

Palmerworks provides several clients with blogging services and we go the extra mile by taking photos of events, as well. Our services are professional, yet affordable. If your company needs help with social networking, be sure to give us a call at 734-252-9321.




Pennsylvania Community Theatre Gets a New Website

Butler Little Theatre has entertained the Butler, Pennsylvania, community since February 1941. Located 35 miles north of Pittsburgh, this continuously operated, non-profit, all-volunteer organization offers area actors, directors, production staff, and audiences five shows each season and annual workshops for children and youth. Located just off Main Street in downtown Butler, the converted carriage house theater seats 155 people and accommodates members, guests and the general public.

In order to celebrate the theatre’s 75th season, the group asked Palmerworks to design a vibrant new website. We created a site with a flowing marquee of upcoming shows, the complete history of the theatre, and lots and lots of photo galleries that highlight their many community events and productions….and of course, the website is responsive, so it’s easily accessed on phones and tablets.

Take a look at bltgroup.org.

No matter what kind of organization you have, we can create a professional-looking website for you at a very reasonable price. Call us at 734-252-WEB1, or visit our website for more information: www.palmerworks.com.




Add That Something Extra to Your Event.

If you’re planning a party, festival, corporate event, carnival, church event, grand opening, block party, or birthday, you want Adelle Fant there. She does face painting, body painting, and airbrush & glitter tattoos. She even does themed face painting for holiday events. Adelle is that person who adds that little bit of something extra to an event.

She asked us to create a website for her that would display her work to potential customers. We came up with a site that pairs brief descriptions of her work alongside a photo gallery on nearly every page of the site. Viewers can click on a photo to see it enlarged, or open up a slide show of that particular gallery.

We added a simple contact form that customers can complete quickly, and a detailed portfolio of her work. In addition to face painting, Adelle also airbrushes cars and motorcycles.

If you are interested in having a talented artist at your event, check out her new website: www.wepaintafx.com.

No matter what kind of business you own, we can create a professional-looking website for you at a very reasonable price. Call us at 734-252-WEB1, or visit our website for more information: www.palmerworks.com.




Palmerworks’ Newest Client Makes Amazing Subs

Vinny Gonella and his family have been serving food to the community for years. In fact, four generations of Gonellas have entered the family business. They wanted a website that would reflect their long family tradition and Italian ancestry.

They also wanted to distinguish their restaurant from any competitors. This is reflected in their website address: www.vgonellasoriginaldeli.com.

We built a five-page website for them with an Italian-themed header and a page devoted to their long time family ownership. We put the menu on the front page with plenty of food photos, and a link to a takeout menu that could be printed out. The site also includes a photo gallery, contact page, and a collection of testimonials from customers.

Apart from all of the website stuff, they make amazing Italian subs. Served on a hard or soft roll, you can order them by how many layers of meat and cheese you would like. In fact if you are so inclined, you can order 15 layers of meat and 3 layers of cheese. Subs are served with lettuce, tomato, onion, and home made sauce.

V. Gonellas Original Deli is located at 22069 Outer Drive in Dearborn. They are open Monday through Friday from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm, and Saturday from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm. Call them at 313-563-8500.

Like all of the websites we create, the Gonella’s site is responsive, which means that it scales to fit perfectly on a smart phone, tablet, laptop or desktop. We can create a professional-looking website for your small business or organization at a very reasonable price. Call us at 734-252-WEB1, or visit our website for more information: www.palmerworks.com.




A fresh look for our latest client – Guardian Martial Arts

screenshot-mobiletest.me 2016-07-12 21-22-02The folks at Guardian Martial Arts in Garden City, MI, had a fine website, but they wanted a fresh look that featured lots of photos of students involved in their classes. Rick performed a total redesign that features plenty of action, newsbriefs, and a photo gallery.

The site is mobile-friendly, an important aspect in today’s fast-paced world, where everyone is looking for information on the go. Graphics resize and the menu turns into a functional dropdown format easily navigated on a touchscreen. We also updated their logo.

Check out the result here.

If you need a website redesign, call us for a free consultation. We can discuss our ideas for how we can provide your site with a fresh new look. 734-252-WEB1.




We enjoyed a hot day of photography at the 2016 Delta Air Lines Golf Outing

Rick and I enjoyed our third year photographing the annual Delta Air Lines Golf Outing. This year’s event took place at the historic Western Golf & Country Club in Redford, Michigan.

More than 35 teams enjoyed a sunny, hot day of golf, and we provided the photos. We printed more than 140 5×7 photos onsite to present to each of the diehard golfers when they returned to the clubhouse.

We thoroughly enjoyed meeting the happy golfers — and they enjoyed receiving their photos.

Event Photos To Go provides photos for golf outings, picnics, and other company get-togethers. Participants can take the memories home with a 5×7 print provided right at the location.

We provide personalized service, and we also provide access to all the photos on our website after the event. If you have an upcoming company event, call us at 734-252-9321 or email us at info@eventphotostogo.com.

Uh oh! Is your site mobile-friendly? If not, you may be a victim of ‘Mobilegeddon.’

You may have heard the latest scary news. Google, which dominates online search, is launching an algorithm to favor sites that are “mobile-friendly.” This means that people who use Google to search on their smartphones may not find many of their favorite sites at the top of the rankings.

If your site hasn’t been updated, it could be ranked way lower in the search engine, which in turn could mean a huge loss of business.

Read more about it here.

To stay in Google’s good graces, websites must be designed so they load quickly on mobile devices. Content must also be easily accessible by scrolling up and down — without having to also swipe to the left or right. It also helps if all buttons for making purchases or taking other actions on the website can be easily seen and touched on smaller screens.

In other words, you need a responsive website.

Palmerworks designs affordable responsive websites.  If you already have a website and it isn’t mobile-friendly, give us a call and we’ll revamp it for you quickly and economically.

Go ahead and see for yourself. Check out a few of our clients’ mobile-friendly websites using your tablet or mobile phone, then call 734-252-9321 to discuss your new site.
