To Do List

You have taken the first step by deciding you want a website for your special event.
Here are a few things you need to do so we can get started.

Call me - let's talk - Do you have a name for your new website?  If not jot down some things that describe what you do, what your product is, your specialty, what you are hoping to convey to your customers.  When you have an idea or a feel for what you might want - call me 620-331-7814 and I will call you back, or send me an email with your phone number and give me a time that is convenient for me to call you.  We will discuss what you want and how we are going to achieve it.  Write down everything that comes to your mind about what you would like on it or want it to look like.  Surf the web for sites that you really like and don't like,  write down their url and what you liked or disliked about them.   Now based on your notes make a list of the features you would like to have on yours. Do you have a favorite color that you would like to use?  

Agreement - After we have talked and you make the decision to have Sherlock Designs build your website, you need to go to the Disclaimer page and read my terms, etc. and then type in your name and send the form to me.  I will do my very best for you and I will be there for you when you need me, but I can't guarantee success with your website.  

Payment - For pricing click here for more information.  After you have decided which Special event package  you would like, click here to go to the order page, to order it.  We require half of the design fee as a down payment, and if you are hosting we require that fee paid at the same time.  Final payment is due within 2 weeks of the completion of your website.  If you want the maintenance program you will pay for that at the same time as the final payment.  For more information click here.

Where do I get the backgrounds, etc. for my website?
Graphics are included in your package price, unless you pick custom graphics from another artist, in which case you will need to purchase them.  After talking with you I will design 2 - 3 different web pages for you to look at and pick from, more if needed.  Your basic graphic package will include, 2  backgrounds, navigation buttons, and appropriate graphics for the occasion.  I do not use a lot of graphics because they take too long to load and the event is the "star" of the page.  

Text - Gather all of the information about your event.  Email it to me.  Please check that dates, times, etc. are correct.

Pictures - The best pictures are digital, but if you have photographs that is fine also.  You can either email them to me or send them in the US mail.  When sending pictures via email only include 1 or 2 per email.  Large files are hard to send and to receive.  If you send photos in the mail I can scan them.  If you send a disk with your information and pictures please pad it well - they are easily broken in the mail.

If you are sending them by US mail please send them to Connie Sherlock, PO Box 332, Independence, Ks 67301.  If you send a disk with your information and pictures please pad it well - they are easily broken in the mail.  If you are sending them in an email send them to

Sit back and be patient!!  I know it's hard.  I will do my best to get your site up as quickly as possible, so the more information you send me as quickly as possible, the quicker I will be able to finish.  I usually allow 2 - 3 weeks to complete a website.  But the time will vary depending on what you want, when you get everything to me and how busy I am.  When I have the first few pages up I will email you so you can look it over and let me know what you think.  If there is something you don't like I need to know, after all this is your home on the web and you need to be pleased with it.  I will do my best to please you.  After you have decided on the graphics, etc.  I will not change it.  After we have decided on the graphic package any additional changes or graphics there will be an additional fee. 

Reports - Each month you will be asked to check your website for any problems, we do not have the time to police each site.  If there are any problems or updates please fill out the Report form and submit it to us.  We will make all changes as quickly as possible.

How do I pay for the Special Event web design work and what does it cost? How much does it cost?  Payments?  We will design a website to fit your needs and budget.  We have a variety of special event packages to choose from.    We can customize a package for you - tell us what you want and email us for a quote.    We will not upload your finished site until payment is received. The down payment is not refundable, so please make sure that you are satisfied with our arrangements before we get started.  If you are not pleased with the site, we will do our best to make improvements to satisfy you.  No refunds for services will be refunded.  We accept Visa, Mastercard, Paypal, checks or money order.  If we have not received your information within 3 months, unless we have made a special arrangement, our contract will be considered null and void and the deposit will not be refunded.
