Get Started

Full Website Design and Development

We offer both blog and website design at affordable rates to match any budget. All Nuts and Bolts Media sites are built on the Genesis Framework.

When you hire us for your design project, you can rest assured that our work is never outsourced - we complete all design projects in-house, from coding to graphics. And we're always a phone call or email away!

Mockup to Genesis

Have a design already and need someone to code it for you? We'll convert your mockup to a beautiful, functional WordPress website running the Genesis framework. As always, our development work is never outsourced and we'll be available for support and guidance as you launch the new custom Genesis theme on your site.

Retainer Services

Often, our clients request design help and/or tech support on an ongoing basis. Our retainer services allow you to select a number of hours each month for any sort of help you can imagine – layout tweaks, consulting, or even general questions about WordPress.

Custom Projects

Have a need that doesn’t quite fit the options here? Contact us via email or our contact page and we’ll be happy to send you a quote!
