    HI All

    I'd like a critique of my new site. Its for the new company I have started.

    Please tell me how fast it loads on your comps. Does the Nav need a preloader?

    Also, is the msg clear and is the site easily navigable?

    Thanks!

    I did not have any loading issues, but I'm on a high speed connection.

    Message is clear. Easy to navigate. One suggestion: for the inflatables page, have a thumbnail menu available so I could click between the larger images without having to go back to the main page.

    Specials page as HMTL, not image.

    Rollovers for navigation on HMTL site.

    Form for contact page.

    Remove this from the HTML site:
    This site requires Flash Player 8 to run. If you cannot see the navigation bar you will need to make this quick download.

    I have an eye for detail like you'd never believe.

    Nice work. I like the logo typography.

    Maybe including pictures of the product at businesses, promoting sales or whatever would help potential cutomers get a visual of how your service/products might look in action and how they might boost sales, etc. Just a thought.

    All in all, I like it.

    Good luck with your new business.

    I like the way you captured the "funness" of inflatables and its a pretty cool site.

    Though, you should add a contact form and rollovers for the html page.

    I don't know why but the html navi took longer for me to load than the flash, is it just me or is there a reason for that?

    Like the site, gets to the point so easy to navigate, although i did have one concern with the navigation buttons in the html version, the size of the images overall were over 100k maybe just cut the size down a bit.

    Thanks for your advice!

    I will check how I optimized the images for the HTML site, I'm sure I can save them smaller.
    In you opinion, is an HTML site really necessary? I would obviously prefer to only update one page but don't want to alienate those without flash players.

    I agree about the rollovers.

    Good idea about the pics at events.

    I also have some awesome drawings of some future inflatables to put up.
