Why Choose TechTamers?
There are hundreds of companies who claim to be Web Designers. They
range from your next door neighbor, who just got a computer and an
idea, to large corporations with 150 designers on staff. Their fees
range just as widely - from your brother-in-law who will do it free
because "you're family" to dedicated web design companies
who charge hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Why have a flat fee?
Many people who are new to the web want to know exactly how much
it will cost. While traditionally, design work is done on a project-by-project
basis, TechTamers feels that that system provides a lot of ambiguity
for newcomers. Instead, we want to encourage everyone to get their
feet wet with their own website. The only way to do that is to get
a website and start working with it.
We have spent a lot of time and effort to design as extensive a
site as possible for most entry-level sites. We customize the graphics
and look-and-feel for you. So while other designers criticize the
practice of providing specific sites for a set fee, we think that
you, our clients, are more comfortable with this system.
What type of guarantee do you offer?
We want you to be a satisfied customer. We want you to recommend
us to your friends. So we want to do the best possible job for you.
That's why we only ask for half of the fee up front. When we agree
that your site is ready, then you pay the remaining half. What better
guarantee is there?
