A stunning new website at half the design price tag. Whether you're a business owner or artist, my ShowIt Template Customization service was designed to give you a gorgeous new website without the DIY headaches.

here's a hot take—

In most contexts, I firmly disagree with the concept of a template.

You're one-of-a-kind, and your website should be too. 

However, throughout my adventures in website design, I began to realize a few universal truths: 1.) not everyone is at a stage in their business where custom design makes sense for them, and 2.) most people don't have time to tinker around with a new website platform. 

Thus, my Showit template customization services were born—helping busy business owners and artists like you create the website of your dreams for cheaper and quicker. 

Let's do this.

"She is not only a                    creative strategist, but her project management skills and overall professionalism made her a JOY to work with.

She managed to adapt a template to make it look like a custom build and provided me with options and thoughtful recommendations every step of the way. I cannot recommend Sarah enough! She took my disparate ideas and wishes, and turned them into something I am so proud of.

"Sarah is seriously                     . She was able to take a template and the vision of what I wanted in a website and create something edgy, cool and totally me."

This website template customization service is for larger sites, and/or for people who want even more custom elements & branding infused into their template than I can do in a singular day. This service also takes a bit longer (1-3 weeks).

Frequently Asked Questions

I design on ShowIt -- You've probably heard of Squarespace and Wix, but ShowIt is the best website building platform on the planet. The creative freedom is unmatched, which means we can tailor your site to your brand (instead of the other way around). And it's literally drag and drop (with no code!), so it's easier for you to update yourself than any of its competitors! Plus, it looks great on all devices.

If you're curious whether or not ShowIt might be right for you, check out this blog post I wrote about ShowIt vs. Squarespace, or this blog post about why ShowIt is the Greatest Ever.

Together, we can change fonts, colors, content, and minor layout adjustments as included as the base price of this package. (You'd be shocked how unique a template can feel once all of that is implemented!) However, depending on your business, we may have to get a little more creative, which could alter the scope and price. Inquire here to so we can hop on a zoom and chat it out!

Sure thing! I love customizing other templates, especially if it's a Tonic Site Shop template (I'm a Tonic Design Partner!). But even if it's not from Tonic, I'm so down. Keep in mind that an outside template purchase is not included in the price of the service.

Absolutely! :)

Your dream website is here.

Stop letting that ShowIt template you purchased collect dust in your GMail archives. It's time to finally launch your new site with the help of an expert who just gets it.
