New website sets Spectrum Framing up for doing business online!

CK Services recently launched a new website for Spectrum Framing, a boutique gallery and framing business based in Thirsk, North Yorkshire.
Spectrum’s existing website was dated and provided little information about the nature of Spectrum’s products and quality of their work.

Tim and Jo Roberts, of Spectrum, decided that they would like a fresh new look, which would also enable them to sell prints online. We were very pleased when they chose us to produce it for them.

Spectrum’s new website sticks very closely to their established brand – using black as the predominant colour, with their signature spectrum of colours across the top, acting as a divider between the header and the content. Their home page also features a gallery of the type of prints that they sell, and a Twitter feed, which pulls their Tweets directly from Twitter in real-time. Spectrum is very active on Twitter, and wanted to use Social Media to the best possible advantage on their website.

The new website was launched in mid-November, to the delight of Tim and Jo, who have had many positive comments about it.
One of these in particular, was amusing: “I didn’t expect something so good for a North Yorkshire town!”
Well it just goes to show, Thirsk is not a backwater, it’s a thriving vibrant town with businesses to match.

We’re very proud to have worked with Spectrum on the production of their new website, and we’re sure that it will bring them lots of new business in the future!

"CK Services have delivered not only an attractive and effective website but subsequently a fast, efficient and very friendly customer focused support service. They never tire of our lack of technical knowledge and are always keen to resolve all our requests."
Julie Gough - Mapping Solutions

"The web package I chose was really affordable for my small business. CK Services undertook the site design, hosting and search engine optimisation. I chose a template and images, wrote the page content and they did the rest. The web design is technically very good, the layouts and drafts were produced very quickly and all changes that I requested were undertaken promptly. "
Ebby Yarrow - Yarrow Safety

"CK Services gave good advice and listened to my requirements before recommending a number of web site designs to choose from. Once one was choosen they worked hard to set it up exactly how I wanted it. I found them to be friendly, reliable and very helpful and I would strongly recommend them to anyone in the future."
Richard Reah - North of England Bonsai.

"CK Services have been very professional and extremely prompt with their service. I wanted a very personal website to suite my new holiday cottages and after asking a few companies, CKS was the only company which had imagination enough to help me. They were open to my ideas and also gave a lot of well-needed input. Fantastic people to deal with, I would highly recomend them to anyone and everyone!"
Jessica Barker - Thief Hole Cottages.

"CKS responded very well to our needs, fully understanding what we were trying to achieve. I asked them to design our new logo and they very patiently worked with us until we got it just right! We've also used CKS for printing our business cards and letterheads and again very pleased with the quality and response we've had."
Mark Sanchez-Garcia - The Sanchez-Garcia Partnership.

"It's been brilliant working with CK Services again. They are great at finding swift solutions to tricky technical issues and I'm particularly impressed that they created everything we needed by my very short deadline."
Julie Gough - Marketing and Communications Manager, Wildlife Trust for Sheffield and Rotherham.
