I am loving having control of my site. Thanks for providing a great service.
YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!!! I love this! I think this is the BEST thing since sliced bread!! I spent over a thousand dollars last year on a website that sucked, and I never published it because it did. I didn’t have the money to invest in what I truly was looking for out of a graphic designer. But, with Press Coders, I have the power to create my dream site at my finger tips, and I get to take true ownership of it…I LOVE THIS!!!
Hi David. Thank you soooooo much. You guys are great! Best support ever. Really worth the purchase
We would like to take the opportunity to thank you both for your outstanding help and patience and quick response time while we were setting up our site over the past months. We’re very pleased and feel we have been in the good hands of two very skilled people (and their team).
We’ve had many questions, and you’ve always answered professionally to the most unprofessional of questions :-). Thank you for making it so easy for us to recommend your services and themes to others!
I would just like to note to forum readers… anyone considering purchasing themes from the Press Coders guys should stop wasting time and money and do it already…the themes work great, they have lots of functionality, and the support is phenomenal. I always get same day answers to my questions and the answers are prompt and easy to understand. Put it this way: there is nothing I have wanted to do with my site that I have been unable to do.
Hi Scott, I want to thank you for your kindness, PATIENCE and amazing customer with your company. Getting this website up is a labor of love, but something I want to master.
Your videos are fantastic and very informative and easy to follow along. So well done and I hope more people let you know how user friendly you have made things.
