I was referred to Nuts and Bolts Media through Twitter. The quote for a custom header for my new website was VERY reasonable and quick and the turnaround time on the actual project was amazing. I’m new at this, but Andrea was super patient with me and answered all of my questions – some of them not even relevant to the design process. I only had a few “buzzwords” in mind for what I wanted the design and logo to be, but she took a look at my site and was able to glean what I really wanted to go for and who I wanted to market my site toward, and built a beautiful custom header. It turned out even better than I had imagined. I appreciated the personalized touch - even though we were working exclusively via email it felt like I was working with a trusted friend. I was also so impressed with Andrea’s intuition and work ethic - emails were answered promptly and the changes we made were quick. As a perfectionist herself, she noticed something in the logo that I had not and fixed it without being prompted, as well as helped me with sizing to put the header on a few other pieces of advertising. Andrea’s reputation and popularity precedes her, and I am SO happy I was able to book her to do the work for my site. I really couldn’t have asked for a better designer (especially as someone new to owning my own business and site) now I have a gorgeous logo that really takes my brand to the next level. I would not hesitate for a second to use Nuts and Bolts again.
L Bee and the Money Tree
When we reached out to Andrea to help us with our blog, she probably didn’t know what she she was in for. My wife and I created See Debt Run together and we both had put a lot of ourselves into the site. As such, we each had strong opinions about how the site design should look, and we were having trouble agreeing on everything from the site colors to the appropriate header. Andrea did a fantastic job of marrying our individual preferences into a single design. We asked a ton of questions during the process, and Andrea was never afraid to speak her mind, which was something that we really appreciated. She is patient and kind, knowledgeable and professional, and just a pleasure to deal with in every way.

I purchased a site audit from Nuts and Bolts Media. I received an email about how the process would work, turnaround time, and things that would be covered in my audit. I have to say that this was, hands down, the best investment I have made for my blog to date. She covered strength, weaknesses and gave suggestions on ways to improve. Not only have I gained readers and followers across many social media platforms but feel I have gained a lifelong friend. Thanks, Andrea for the advice, design completion, hands down superb tech support and endless laughs.
Nuts and Bolts Media is an amazing company and they are great at what they do! I knew I needed a site redesign but had no clue what exactly I wanted. Andrea guided me through the process and helped me come up with the perfect design for me. She guided me every step of the way, from the theme to my logo and colors. She would keep making changes until I was completely happy with each piece. My old design was so ugly that when people visited my newly designed site, many thought they had accidentally gone to the wrong site! Andrea’s work is that amazing.
Money Life and More
I had been contemplating moving to a self-hosted blog but really didn’t want to deal with it because it seemed complicated. When I finally decided to pull the trigger, Andrea answered my initial questions and had my new (fabulous!) self-hosted blog up in no time. I barely had to do anything at all and poof, it was done!
I hired Nuts and Bolts Media for two projects. One was designing my professional website, Tonya Designs. The other was migrating my personal finance blog, Budget and the Beach, to self-hosted WordPress. Andrea kept me involved in the design process from start to finish, and was always open to suggestions, although I hardly had to make any since she has a great sense of what I needed in my website. I was thrilled with the outcome! What’s more impressive is how she has been available to answer any questions I have regarding both my websites, which is a relief to someone like me who is not as web tech-savvy. I highly recommend hiring Nuts and Bolts Media!
Nuts and Bolts Media did an excellent job with my website migration. The work was done without any issues and was completed on schedule as promised. Professionalism is being present and available for any questions and concerns and that is what I received. Thank you to Andrea and her team for the great work on my site and I look forward to working with them again in the future.

I had been on Blogger for a little over a year when I finally decided that it was time to be more professional and move to WordPress and to also be self-hosted. I had no clue what to do, and thankfully Andrea was there to save the day! She handled everything and the switch could not have gone any smoother.
Making Sense of Cents
I should have come to Andrea sooner. Those 7 words are how I describe the service. Not only is Andrea responsive, but she over delivers on her promises. I couldn’t be happier with the design of my websites.
Your Finances Simplified
Andrea and the team at Nuts and Bolts Media have been nothing but professional! She completely revamped my blog and was patient while I asked the numerous questions that go along with being a newbie to the blogging world. I would and have recommended her to anyone looking for a personalized, professional approach to the media arena. I know I shall be using her services for years to come!
After being committed to Blogger for five years I was nervous to leave. Andrea made the process so simple! She quickly responded to my many questions and designed a great logo for me. I couldn’t be happier with my self hosted blog and I just wish I had done it sooner. I highly recommend Nuts and Bolts Media!
I moved my blog to a new host after being with another hosting provider for over a year. After numerous security breaches and frustrated calls to multiple departments in global help desks, I made the decision to hire Nuts and Bolts Media for the migration. Many of my readers and fellow bloggers spoke very highly of Andrea and I contacted her to discuss migration. A couple of hours later, my site had been moved. Andrea took care of absolutely everything and notified me promptly via email when the migration was complete. Andrea is a true testament to going ‘above and beyond’ and impressively accommodated working with the difference in time zone.
When you run a small business and many of your referrals come to you through your website, you can’t afford to have your site go down. We sought out Andrea after experiencing frequent outages with our previous hosting service. Andrea has not disappointed us. Her service has been excellent, she responds to our needs and questions quickly, and provides stellar maintenance for our sites. We would recommend Nuts and Bolts Media to anyone looking for help with a blog or website.
Andrea is very responsive, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. She has helped with me a few back-end site projects, and turned around a great site redesign in a short amount of time. From my experience, Andrea really knows what she’s doing and has a vast amount of experience that can help website owners. Work with her!
Nuts and Bolts Media completely redesigned my website, RichmondSavers.com, and went above and beyond in every respect. Andrea exudes competence and professionalism, but she also has that human touch that’s so essential to a positive working relationship. I knew that she was always there to bounce a question off of and she even spent an hour with me on Skype going over every nitpicky question I had about fonts and other tweaks. That was really amazing and someone nobody else I’ve ever dealt with would have done! For someone like me with no website design background, it is such a relief to have found someone like Andrea who is trustworthy, talented and willing to go the extra mile to help her clients. I’ve already contracted with her on a few smaller ‘wish list’ items and I plan to use her services quite often in the future.
