    Nice site. I like the design, here are a few thoughts on it:

    1. You have 3 boxes on each side of the main text, and they are filled with text also. I think it would make the page more pleasing to the eye if those boxes contained graphics, ideally some screenshots of the different templates each box is advertising.

    2. I like the banner you have (although the text is slightly plain), but for your navigation, I'm not a fan of the links being a lighter color. The gray makes them harder to see, and makes them seem less important (IMO). Mouseovers are good, and the idea of differentiating between the current page and the other pages in the nav is a good idea, it's just the method used that I think could use some work.

    3. It might just be me, but I think the blue you have chosen for a bg is a little bright. A darker blue may work.

    It may seem like alot, but overall, nice site!

    I've got some serious issues with this design:
    1. Your colors are not complementary at all. The blues are nice together, but the background is WAY too bold.. tone it down a notch. The red-orange banner, although it's a cool design, just stands out.... either change it or the rest of the page to complement eachother.
    2. Why the heck did you bevel the banner? Granted, the 3d effects with the drop shadow are effective, but why make the banner itself look 3d? I think it would be enough to make it look like it's floating with the drop shadow effect.
    3. I don't like the "off" and "over" states of your menu. The "on" state is nice and legible, but the others are too blurry. The "over" state is plain ugly.
    4. HOME button is always in its "on" state, while the other's are always in their "off" state, no matter what page you're on.
    5. Mouseovers take too long. Something's up with the script you're using.
    6. Sidebar text is way too big, and why is it graphical? Make it html paragraph text.

    Don't get me wrong... overall it's a nice design with good potential. However, the issues above are really holding it back.

    I'd have to agree with everything transio said, and add a few things of my own:

    1. "Custom" is misspelled 3 times on the page. I'm sorry, but I hate when people misspell words.
    2. What's the point of the asterisks beside each of the elements of your form? Are they meant to indicate required fields, or something else?
    3. The CSS colour selection for your form elements themselves should match the rest of the site. You may also want to lose the background colour for the form elements (just a personal thing, but I always find backgrounds in form elements irritating.)
    If I've helped you out in any way, please pay it forward. My wife and I are walking for Autism Speaks. Please donate, and thanks.
