Tell us a story about this website.

I was building the barebones site using the demo download of Sandvox. While I had watched the video I had missed a part on how to add a logo to the masthead and a couple of other things. I emailed and within 12 hours had a quick reply from a real person who both explained how to do these things and who included links to the help sections that were actually helpful. I'm not used to getting service from customer service and it was great.

Why did you use this Sandvox design?

The design was graphically consistent with what I wanted to convey in color scheme and layout.

What techniques did you use to build this website?

I had three particularly large pdf files that I wanted to allow folks to download easily and using the intuitive link to file on this website feature I was able to do this easily and with just pulling the target to the file and the software did the rest.
