TECHNICAL QUESTIONS

The most preferred source files are layered PSD, PNG or TIFF files.
We also work with Sketch files and accept designs in AI and EPS formats, but please note that additional time will be needed to convert them into PSD format, and we will require your confirmation of the Sketch, AI or EPS to PSD conversion.

If layered files are not available, we can also accept flattened designs in other formats like JPEG or PDF. For PDF source file please specify the exact dimensions in pixels to be used for the page. Please note that sometimes it is impossible or undesirable to use flattened files for particular elements. Projects with flattened designs usually require additional time.

The design files you send us should utilize RGB color scheme. If the design uses CMYK color scheme, we will convert it to RGB and ask for your confirmation on the result. Please note that this may take additional time and some tints may differ from the original version.

We can also use your existing markup as a source. You are welcome to provide us with the local version of the page and we will use it for re-slicing.
When in doubt, upload the files you have, and ask your questions — we will advise you from there.

We create code according to W3C standards, and our markup is displayed correctly in all popular modern browsers.
The QA Team tests the web pages in Internet Explorer 11 and the latest versions of Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, Edge and Opera by default for all packages.

We test all projects on both Windows and Mac OS platforms.

Please try to provide us with layered PSD files where the text is editable. However, if that is not possible and the text is flattened, please let us know which font styles should be used, so that we can insert text placeholders.

Yes, we can use these font-replacement techniques. However, you have to refer to Fonts.com to check if your fonts are compliant with the safe fonts or have the required licenses for their web-embedding. Please note that in this case the client is fully responsible for following EULA.

Fonts produced by Adobe Systems are known to be safe.

Fonts produced by Berthold, FontFont, Fontsmith, Hoefler & Frere-Jones, ITC, Linotype require some additional licenses for their web embedding.

We sure can. You will get compatibility with iOS (iPhone, iPad), Android and Windows Phones etc

Yes, in most cases all JavaScript will work on mobile devices with no problem. When it’s not possible, we will be sure to let you know in advance.

We test on devices with a minimum screen resolution of 320px. If your resolution is less than 320px, please make sure to specify that when making your order.

Responsive design is a technology that allows web page elements to change their size and position according to the screen resolution. This technology is based on CSS Media Queries. Please make sure that your designs have these screen dimensions: desktops – 1024px, tablets – 768px, mobile devices – 480px or 320px.

A responsive email template allows to adapt it's layout depending on the screen resolution of the device you use. Such technology is supported by iPhone, iPad, and Android. Other devices will display a desktop version of the template.

ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS

If you would like a markup for an existing site to be remade, please provide us with the local HTML version of the site (html, css, images, etc.) so that we can open the page locally. Please also let us know in which browsers the page is displayed correctly or provide us with the screenshot of how the page should look.

By default, we do not include link URLs in the code. If you are interested in any additional functionality, please let us know.

We will be happy to assist you with JavaScript / AJAX / PHP. Feel free to specify the functionality you are interested in and the preferable library or framework. The quote will be provided separately, depending on the request.

We always prefer to do all the code from scratch. That way we can guarantee the highest quality of the final product.

Therefore, we usually will re-slice the pages. However, you are welcome to provide your code for investigation.

EMAIL TEMPLATE QUESTIONS

We use tables for email templates to ensure maximum compatibility with as many email clients as possible, even for those email clients that do not support CSS or cannot load images. An email template marked up with tables is sure to be displayed correctly for all your customers.

Due to the limited possibilities of using CSS in email clients, here are the following design requirements:

  • Please note that the text laid over the pattern background will be made as an image. The editable HTML text can be laid over the solid color backgrounds only.
  • Try to avoid placing elements one over the other, e.g. the button is placed over the background image. Otherwise, such elements will be made as one image.

The optimal width is from 600px to 700px.

Web fonts without effects are preferable. Any other fonts will be included into images.

It is necessary to include a link that allows to unsubscribe from the newsletter (unsubscribe link).

We do not use it as a default css preprocessor in emails, but we can definitely use it upon request for you. This option is quoted $29 per email template.

SPEED IT UP

If there are non-web fonts used for the navigation or headings, please specify if those elements should be made using images, @font-face, or if there should be a substitution of the font.

You can send your notes in the Client Notes section when posting an order. They may also be placed in the design file itself-whatever is most convenient for you.

We can do it faster. If your order is time-sensitive, tell us immediately and we will look into expedited delivery possibilities.

IMPLEMENTATION QUESTIONS

We can install the theme on your server. Please provide us with the following details:

  • FTP access (host, login, password)
  • HTTP link to the server folder
  • phpMyAdmin access (if possible)

If the CMS is not installed on your server, we can deal with the installation. The following details will be needed in this case:

    • Host of the MySQL server
    • Login and password for database

Database name (if it exists)

If you have the CMS already installed, we will need access to the admin panel. Please let us know beforehand if any content is already present on the site. This may affect the time required for the installation.

Please note that we work with a staging only and install a theme into a fresh CMS.

You are welcome to provide us with the existing HTML / CSS for investigation. After examining the markup we will let you know whether it can be used for implementation or if creating the markup from scratch is recommended instead.

We work with the latest stable release of the CMS (available at the project start point) by default. If you need compatibility with any other versions of the CMS, please notify us about it in the Notes or Client Area.
