Ted’s Signs

Ted's Signs is one of the oldest and most trusted sign making companies in the Brainerd Lakes area. Owner Brandi Breitbach contacted us to take their website to the next level. She wanted to offer online "Do-It-Yourself" sign making, as well as connect an eCommerce engine to the website. Since the "Do-It-Yourself" application was very custom, we had to go with a platform allowing for such programming. We chose OSCommerce and programmer Todd Holforty with ProhostOne. I have used Todd extensively in the past. He's one of the best, most creative "programmer web guys" I've come across in ...

Immanuel Lutheran Church – Crosby, MN

New Website for Crosby, MN Lutheran Church In 2004, BAMsites, a Brainerd MN area web services company, was asked to build a website for this local church. We employed a Joomla platform at the time and the site served us well for many years. Last summer the website team gathered to pursue a redesign. The site needed to look impressive, be welcoming to new members, easy to navigate, and mobile friendly. There are a number of church templates available out there so I did a search to cut to the chase on some design ideas. Since I placed the church's new site on Wordpress, we went with ...

Iron Range Veterinary Clinic

The animal hospital is owned and operated by Julia Fry, DVM and Matt Stahl, DVM. They offer a complete range of vet services focusing on dogs, cats, and horses. Their previous website was from a veterinary website service and gave little personality to their business. Everything was "boilerplate", meant to apply to any vet clinic and was generating little, if any, business. They asked BAMsites to assess the situation and offer an alternative that would not only look good, but most importantly put them atop the search engines for the local region they service.
