Wow, what can I say?

Working with Shawn and the team at Graticle has made launching our website not only easy and stress-free, but fun! Our website looks wonderful, it looks beautiful and clean and is easy to for clients to navigate and order products. I love that it is mobile friendly and formats great on the phone. They really took the extra steps to make sure it came out exactly how we wanted and even made videos explaining step by step and page by page how to change or add to the website including changing text and images, adding products, etc. Shawn has made this a wonderful experience and helped create a great site that accurately represents our business. Not only will I recommend Graticle to other companies but also plan on having them do more work for us in the future.
