    The website has a lot of information on it. Overall I think most people could find their way around it ok. One thing that did stand out was that there are a few grammar mistakes on it. For example on the magnets page, there is the following test "These Cheap magnets is long lasting and durable"
    It should read "these cheap magnets are long lasting and durable"
    Maybe a small thing, but it would personally put me off if I was a potential customer.

    The website is to wide. Change that.

    There is too much information on the homepage. It's overwhelming. Next to that it is not that clear what you can actually do on the website. So try and clear the homepage more and give some basic information about what the website is about.

    Put all the payment options on the top, so the potential customer can see it right away.

    Maybe make the menu in a different colour so there's more contrast.

    Hope this will help you start altering some stuff.

    Personally, I find the home page very overwhelming. There is a LOT of information on there that you can probably move off to other tabs. I think as a consumer I would probably move on to another site instead of decipher all the different things. The other thing I saw was that your font size/type seems to change depending on which page it is, this is just sort of picky, but I'd change everything to go for consistency.
    Good things: I like how you have photo examples that are a decent size to give the customer a good idea of what they are ordering.
    Good luck!

    I agree with the other reviewers. It is hard to figure out what the website is about. Maybe you could put some text on the home page as a first paragraph. Something like:

    "Looking for a custom banner or advertisements? You have come to the right place. We have a great selection and low prices! With our easy free design tool, you can customize your product in minutes."

    Right away you have told the visitor: what you sell, you have low prices, and easy customization. Now the potential customer can browse the products.

    Does that make sense?

    I find too much information on your main page, it seems that you repeat some items several times.
    Is you website just political products? I my self am interested in some of your products but you only show political information.

    As everyone else said, it needs to be better organized. Maybe change some fonts here and there. (Look at the blue title that says "specials", you can make a much better one at cooltext.com)

    Your description is too long. It is cut off by Google. They only allow 150 characters (including soaces).
    You are 2nd page no. 10 with keywords "yard signs". May want to work on that.

    Check your competition and see what they are doing, Some are listed on multiple pages. That should be one of your goals.

    I agree with alot of the comments made. It is a very busy site. My first thought was visual overload. Lots of links on the left side are a bit overwhelming. I think it may be better if you have links to the catagories on the homepage, and have the sub catagories for each on their own specific pages, it may help the homepage look less busy. I think a link to "signs" on the homepage would suffice. Then, when i click on signs, all of the sub catagories could be somewhere on that page. As a consumer, I want an easy to use site that is efficient. I shop online alot because I have a busy schedule. If I come upon a busy site, I usually back out and look for something quicker and better layed out. Just observations from a consumer. Hope it helps a little and good luck with your site.

    I think you have a great business and many people need sign boards and custom made posters and buttons.

    However your website is a nightmare to traverse through, even though you have great content spread everywhere. Loved the section where you can design your own signs.

    I think your primary focus on the website should be about the sign itself and not the material on which the sign is made. Once a person has chosen their design you can then direct them to which material i.e. - cardboard sign, plastic sign, poster, button etc.

    You should have a maximum of 5-6 links on your homepage and then further links on your sub page. Your About us page is great with a lot of great information but it is buried deep inside the links on the left.

    If I was looking for a sign, I would not trust your website easily. It has a look and feel of a 'rip-off' site. I think you should consider a complete redesign to improve the usability and trust for your users. I think if you do that, you will be able to exponentially grow your business using your website.

    I would also suggest getting a new logo for the site. You could even try the free logo service on this site. Some examples of better sites in your line of business.

    The title tag needs work. The Title tag and your first h1 should be the same.

    Too much information to me there is flow on the page

    Hi Mate - not a technical point, but I would avoid ever using the word "cheap" to describe goods. This infers they are poor quality in the reader's mind, and may cause them to question whether to align themselves with your product.

    Great value, economy etc, are good ways of saying what I think you mean to but without suggesting the quality is somehow poor.

    As some one who is not very quick on the web surfing the first page that opens is very confusing there is so much going on. i was using a net book to view the site and it was very wide. maybe if the different types of products where in submenus it would clean up the home page. Your phone number is very small. i had to read to the bottom of the page to find out you specialize in poloitical banners. First impressions matter and if the home page was a bit more organized it would be a great first impression as your products and prices look very good

    I think I agree with most of what has been said before, I think you're trying to provide as much detail as possible for the customer, which is good, but at the minute it's a little overwhelming.

    I think one, overall, unifying design for the different pages is a good idea, with maybe just one or two fonts used to provide consistency and also a feeling of crispness and efficiency and maybe more professionalism? It's a personal thing but I also dislike flashing signs and find them a bit irritating. I think they do draw attention but in this case it seems to be for free shipping for your lower cost items, is that really where you want people focussing their attention? Maybe a heading of some sort with 'free shipping on these items' with a bulleted list would work better?

    In terms of the amount of info contained would it be possible to have less on te initial page with buttons for each category that people can follow depending on their needs? I also wonder about the info provided on each type of item, eg magnet signs, you talk about different ways of measuring advertising effectiveness but don't then say whether signs have been shown to have a positive impact - so maybe leave this out. Rather than a couple of dense paragraphs of text (with some typos) I'd be tempted to bullet point main issues eg: improve sales, increase awareness of brands etc

    Overall I think the site is good, with a level of detail that is reassuring with these types of products. I would, however, look at ways to present this more clearly, with additional pages from a simple home page perhaps - although I am by no means an expert and just commenting as member of public
