...designed by PLP Graphic Design Services. PLP is a small company concerned with your small company's promotional needs, and is cognizant of your budget. We offer the kind of personalized customer service that big techno-companies only write advertisements about. You wont have to go through layers of automated phone recordings to reach someone who will help you.
Our services include new domain name search and registration, site design and development (including photography, graphics, and writing), and ongoing maintenance of your site. We will place your new site on the World Wide Web and link it to general internet search engines as well as sites specific to your field of interest. We can set up e-mail addresses and create order forms and credit card transactions. The cost of your website will vary depending on your design and technological needs.
We believe in good, clean, welcoming sites that are easy to look at and logical to navigate through. Fast-loading "flash" animation -- such as that on PLP's homepage -- is an option that will impress visitors to your site. After visiting a sampling of our websites, please email or call (908) 696-0053 to discuss your needs.

CLIENT: Appleton Productions www.LeadEast.net

CLIENT: Stacy Sibona www.StacySibona.com

Four simple html pages with excellent photographs supplied by Mike Tesi Photography.
COMMENT BY CLIENT: "I was so intimidated by the prospect of creating a website that I postponed it for more than two years. Gail made the creation of my website painless. Gail's professionalism did not impede her ability to be real, humorous, pleasant, or effective. She came up with quick design options, sketches and ideas on how to make my page more impactful. Why did I wait so long? "

CLIENT: Appleton Productions www.delahayeusa.com
OBJECTIVE: A new site reflecting the classy design and high quality of a company "recreating the most beautiful cars in the world."
COMMENT BY CLIENT: "I am thrilled with the excellent job PLP is doing for my company, both on my Leadeast.net and DelahayeUSA.com websites. Not only does Gail provide us with clean, crisp designs and execution, working with her is a pleasure compared to other web designers I have experienced in the past who are slow, unresponsive, and don't have suggestions how we might improve our sites. I strongly reccommend PLP Graphic Design Services to anyone considering having their website either created or updated. Interested parties please feel free to contact me directly regarding my experiences with PLP - (908) 876-9100."
- Terry Cook, President, Appleton Productions, Long Valley, NJ

COMMENT BY CLIENT: "As a performer, I wanted a website that was professional, classy without being stuffy, and that jumped off the page. Gail took the ball and ran with it, taking both of our ideas and making a site that is fun, exciting, and tailor-made for me. I couldn't have asked for a better web designer. Gail was very professional, creative, easy to work with, and always positive. I get wonderful feedback about the site."
- Karen Luschar, Entertainer, Bloomfield, NJ

Our website is key to our enrollment -- about 80% of our inquiries come through the website. Even if someone sees an ad somewhere, most check the website before inquiring."

- Scott Hahn, President, Hahn's Woodworking Co., Inc., Branchburg, NJ
CLIENT: NE Pennsylvania Bike Tour www.bike-inn-to-inn.com
OBJECTIVE: Three bed-and-breakfast inns in Northeastern Pennsylvania, which together offer a three-day bike tour from inn to inn, required a web presence to support their printed marketing material. Links to their individual sites also needed. Flash animated.
COMMENT BY CLIENT: "We gave Gail Mardfin at PLP the task of designing our logo and turning our bike tour promotion into a website that was appealing, attractive, and cost effective, and to do so as quickly as possible! Not only did she exceed those expectations, but she also handled all of the technical aspects of getting us on-line, registered with numerous search engines, etc. in a most professional manner, staying in contact with us throughout the entire process. We're pleased to have Gail maintaining our site, as this allows all of us to devote more energy to innkeeping, for which we are better qualified!"
- Kim Ross, General Manager, Stone Bridge Inn and Restaurant, Union Dale, PA

Most of all I loved the personal interest she took and her calm demeanor no matter what happened."
- Marcia Trachtenberg, Certified Kripalu Yoga Teacher, Basking Ridge, NJ
