Thanks to Pat at Black Cap, I now have a website that showcases my work beautifully. Pat’s knowledge and experience have been evident throughout the design process as he helped me determine the features that would best suit my vision and needs. The site is easy to navigate on both laptop and mobile device and loads quickly; the content is well organized and easy to read and view; photos have been customized to work as headers for each section. I have really appreciated Pat’s quick responses and readiness to answer any questions I had, often with extensive explanations. Thank you!

“I had been doing my own web site since 2001.  I used a program that isn’t even available these days.  Due to its limitations and all the different types of computers, security on them etc my ordering process wasn’t so easy for all.  Needed to update the process and make it easier for customers to place an order.  Also always thought if the site ever has issues during the gardening season…   Decided sometime last spring to look at having it redone.   My goal was to learn a new program eventually and have the new site up and running for sometime in December 2015 in time for season 19.  I came up with some goals for the new site/layout and met with Pat in October 2015.  Was 10 minutes in and had decided he had the job.  Pat was easy to work with.  Emailing back and forth worked well for both of us. Knowing he was local was great as I believe in supporting businesses locally when we have a choice.  We both came up with some new ideas during the initial design process and during the construction.  I had a date in mind for launch and budget for his time and he respected both.   Due to me wanting to learn and do some of the work myself for some content, ‘plant inventories/control’ and shopping cart options he taught me along the way.  Suggested some great videos and now it has been launched I am very pleased with the results.  I have had a few customers already say one of the easiest shopping online experiences they had.  Was important to me to look professional but still have the personal touch.  I didn’t want it to look like a site only for mail ordering perennials.  Local customers can pre-order their plants and set up a pick up date! NO payment required until customers pick up which is what I had done prior. Thank you again Pat!”

“Working with Black Cap Design has been a very rewarding experience. Pat and Carrie were a pleasure to work with, creative, knowledgeable, prompt and resourceful. Pat built a sophisticated website that required much customized programming in order to achieve a wish list made up of very unique requirements. The new Sustainable Peterborough website indeed meets all the requirements on our initial wish list, and has received numerous positive reviews from the Sustainable Peterborough Coordinating Committee, Sustainable Peterborough Partner Organizations, as well as members of the community.”

“We are thrilled with the website Pat produced for us! Our search for a good web designer took us to Canada and Australia. Black Cap Design’s simple, informative presentation, range of costed packages and choice of options impressed us. When we spoke with Pat, he came across as caring, patient and knowledgeable. We thought ‘this sounds like a person we could work with’ – we could not have been happier with our choice! From both a professional and personal perspective, Pat’s level of service and advice throughout the design process – and after – have been outstanding. We look forward to continued business with Pat at Black Cap Design.”
