Hello Gary,

Your home page is very functional. There's something not quite right about the font. The background works extremely well and really shows off the collection in the categories very well. Your menu although longish works very well. I'm not overwhelmed by amount at all. I like it.

Your "about us" page is written in a very familiar and personable style. You don't need the guffaws (lol's etc.). The story comes right out of the page. As a customer I'm feeling that I can begin to trust you. I like your story and member intros.

"Contact us": Down the back. Your early pages are precious and I can easily find you through your menu.

Grading system: Lower down. I want to see the amazing collections you have. Bring them on please.

Browse by Artist: Clear and clean. Pics would add to it immensely.

categories: Brillaint. I can see it all at a glance and you tell me my risk with descriptions of physical quality of the product. dress up your rare piece. catch my eye.

A great site Gary. I think most likely to succeed shows that you do know the business and I guess you have name already out there as well which will support the time that it takes for your website to get known.

Gary I tried to write this as quickly as I could because I wanted my original impression to last until I could put it down in text. So in summary this really is my very first impression. I think that's important in a very competitive game like yours. Please look at more considered impressions and balance the overall with the rest of the info that will follow in other reviews.

Good luck.

Hi Peter, Thank you for your time you have given me some great ideas and tips.

I want visitors to feel confident they can trust me and that i know what i'm doing without my site being too, i guess corporate looking, a cool kind of site thats easy to use and pleasing on the eye.

The font is something i will have to have a play with.

Browse by artist pictures - thats a great idea and one i will definitely will try and implement.

Regards Gary.

Congrats on a great site!

Thank you Ruth, It's always good to get others opinions, we all see things differently of course. I joined Synthasite 7 or so weeks ago and am amazed at what i have been able to achieved in such a short space of time, with no prior knowledge of web building! So thanks guys and thank you Synthasite!
