Well, we have finally done it. The Bib Shoppe has a newly designed website that is more user-friendly for both you and us! It all started a year ago when we realized we needed better customer service and a website with more features that we could access ourselves for the right price. First, we needed a logo. A great, reasonable logo company was recommended to us, and we first got our logo made to our satisfaction within days. Next came the year long search for a web-designer. We knew our limitations and realized we needed help to create the design we wanted. We shared our ideas and colors with our designer and the company “tolerated” all our emails and changes with a wonderful, patient attitude. Once the design was made, we moved to a technical expert that helped with all the ins and outs of the backside of a website. Again, we found the most knowledgeable and patient person to help us reach our goal. Yes, it all took time – we had to retake all our pictures again, re-stock our products, and input the information into our new site. But, now we are ready to unveil our baby using our same web-address at www.bibshoppe.com.
Browse our new selections of adult bibs, towel bibs, baby bibs, burp cloths, toddler dress bibs, custom minky (minkee) blankets, ready-made minky blankets, inspirational items, and special occasion bears.
Notable enhancements to our new website that will make your searching and shopping easier and your overall experience more user-friendly include:
- New products
- Link to Twitter Facebook, and The Bib Shoppe Blog at the top of each page
- Search bar
- Custom, monogrammed minky (minkee) blanket orders can be placed online with close to 200 fabrics to choose from
- Newsletter signup
- Portfolio category to view a photo gallery of our happy customers. (Send us your pictures with you or your loved one using a Bib Shoppe product.)
- Online Wholesale Request form. (We are currently selling minky blankets and sets wholesale to business establishments.)
Use coupon code: redribbon to receive 10% off on all Visa, Mastercard, and/or PayPal online orders through April 15, 2011.
So, now pour yourself a cup of tea, sit back, and take a moment to leisurely look through our new site. If you like what you see, please leave us a comment, forward our site to your friends and/or family, join one of our ‘Social Media’ sites (Twitter, Facebook, or Blog) to keep informed of all sales and new products, and don’t forget to bookmark us or add us to your favorites. As always, if you have any questions, just email us at email@example.com.
