PSD to HTML Companies Comparison and Review

  |   Blog

In the end, none of these companies could do what I needed. They either insisted on implementing the entire WordPress site. Or they couldn’t work with a theme that was calling custom fields. Looks like freelancers are still the way to go.

Most expensive to least expensive:

For My Project – I selected these options (or a variation on them depending on the service):

3 Pages:

  • Homepage
  • Interior page for product layout
  • Interior page for general info

Options:

  • Responsive design
  • Commented code
  • HTML 5
  • CSS 3.0
  • Section 508 Compliance (for people with disabilities, i.e. to make the code accessible to a person who is blind)
  • Google web fonts
  • Microformats
  • Favicon
  • Jquery
  • Implement rollovers
  • Optimized for Retina Displays
  • Footer is sticky at the bottom of the page

Additionally, my design required several buttons to be rollovers and it also required a space to be left for a slideshow (a plugin I wanted to implement – not use theirs).

Added slideshow – installed this plugin myself.Social Media – requested widget space here so I could add it myself.
Menus – two menu spaces – one for top and one for footer
