the best wool bedding

Two years ago my wife and I started a e-commerce business. We had a great product in luxurious wool bedding, but needed a great platform for the site.

One great design and week of development later SleepySheep was born. Technology used - XHTML/CSS, JavaScript, Shopify, Ruby (liquid templates), Blogger, Merchant services.www.sleepysheep.ca

Fashion for your drinks

Chris was in a quandary: he wanted an e-commerce site, knew some basic coding, had a cool design, and was ready to build so he choose Miva Merchant. As development progressed he realized the complex nature of e-com and called on Justintense for some help. After a brief consultation we agreed that Miva Merchant was not the right platform for his webstore, and decided to use Shopify to bring drinktoque.com to life. With a fun design already in place we created a product centric UI to showcase the unique toques. In the end he was very happy and glad we switched to Shopify.
