Pigment ART gave us a call as a referral from one of our other clients (LC Ballroom). They had someone design them a site on one of those "Do-it-Yourself" websites and quite honestly, it was a mess. We met with Ernie a couple of times, once to take photos of his 65+ paintings of Lighthouses and Landscapes. If you ever want to sit and just talk about lighthouses, this is the guy to call, Ernie is 90 years old and is one of the last two authentic Maine Lighthouse Keepers still with us.
Bromar Printing Solutions came to us looking for an eCommerce solution with a twist. They needed a shopping cart style system for use by their larger customers who have numerous employees that would need to be able to order printed materials such as business cards, letterhead, envelopes, etc. This is a password protected system so clicking on the link won't show you much, but this site allows the employee to login and order the printed materials they need to perform their duties, then the order is automatically sent to an administrator at the employee's headquarters where a Purchase Order is assigned. The order is then sent to Bromar Printing Solutions for fulfillment.

The layout of the site is similar to a shopping cart style layout and functionality, but without the ability to shop online, which is what the owner was looking for.
