Shoes please, no booze

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009

Retail research group IMRG have reported online shopping stats for August. It seems that the overall spend for the month slipped by 10%.

Total online sales dropped to £3.8bn (which was still 16% higher than in August 2008). Alcohol and lingerie sales were down, but footwear sales were up.

The reason? Well I guess some of it’s seasonal and some of it’s the recession (after all unemployment is still rising). Wonder what’ll happen at Christmas? Crystal ball anyone?



Browser compatibility

Saturday, September 5th, 2009

There are so many new browsers around, and it’s important that your site looks good in all of them. To make sure of this I have the latest software available to check your website in the following browsers/versions…

  • Internet Explorer 6/7/8
  • Firefox 2+
  • Apple Safari
  • Google Chrome

Sometimes a website will not appear 100% as it should when viewed via Internet Explorer 6/7 (IE6/7) this because IE6/7 are outdated browsers using old rendering techniques.  I really don’t know why anyone still uses IE6, there are so many better (and safer) browsers available out there.  Secunia reports 142 vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer 6, 22 of which are unpatched, some of which are rated moderately critical in severity.


Printing options

Sunday, August 30th, 2009

I’ve simplified the options for printing, making it easier to mix-and-match different items and quantities.

Prices on the whole have been reduced which is great news for you lot! Also, you now have the option of lithographic printing on letterheads (when purchased in 500/1000 amounts). The lithographic process delivers a printed paper that is usable in any home printer – including lasers.

Business card options remain the same but are priced seperately (so you only pay for the options you really want) such as double sided printing (great for marketing) and matt/gloss lamination (adds the classy touch).
