Congratulations on your incorporation!
I actually just did this myself and am kicking myself for not doing it sooner!

Here are a few names I have heard a lot about for web design:
Red Peach Designs
Four Little Ducks
Elemental Muse

HTH a little!

Congratulations!
Are you looking for resources on how to get started and do it yourself or for an actual designer? The gals here are full of lots of resources!

You might try browsing others' sites (visit their "home pages"), finding ones you like, and inquiring as to who did their sites.

Thanks everybody, we are really excited. Dh is getting more and more excited as the business trickles in and has even uttered words like, "go ahead, invest in yourself.." WOW!

So, I am looking for a designer, not a template or a DIY thing. I want a very unique, industry specific webpage. But, it does not need a shopping cart.

Just another thought. I always look around at websites and wonder why people don't do things that are more unique. We get a lot of compliments on our site and I think it stands out. For every site I have made I research similar business' site for days as well as totally different business' sites. It gives me a creative edge, I think. Then I draw out exactly what I want in a really lame-o drawing and send it to my web designer so they can do exactly what I want. Doing all this makes it so that I am sure not to have a cookie cutter template looking site. I am having two sites built right now, I will post links when they are up

You are so right Stacey! As a web designer I love working on sites where the owner wants something different and original. It makes it fun to work on, its a challenge! And feedback is super important.
