Austin, TX, January 26, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- There are many wedding Web sites that will help brides announce and plan their special day, but now there’s a service just for brides who want to tell their story through the hands of an artist.
DaphneandClio.com, launched in 2007, is now offering wedding Web site templates, based on the exclusive artwork already sold on the Daphne & Clio Web site. Instead of using stock photography like most wedding template Web sites, the templates are designed using a combination of exclusive artwork created by established artists. Once brides select their art-driven template, they can easily personalize it using pre-existing online software.
The Web site templates also feature 24/7 online editing, photos and photo galleries, unlimited pages, dynamic layout options, podcasting support, advanced RSVP forms, automatic blogs, journals and discussion forums. Brides can also use their own domain name. In addition, brides don't have to worry about security either, since the sites can be password-protected and e-mail is protected by an industrial anti-spam shield.
Nicole Fikes, creator of Daphne & Clio says her own wedding was the inspiration for her company. “When I was planning my wedding, I wanted a wedding Web site that expressed my personal style and my appreciation for modern art. I ended up designing our Web site myself, and during that process, realized I could do the same for other brides. Now, we put the technology at our client’s fingertips which allows brides to share their story through a wide range of mediums – art, photos, words and even their own voice,” says Fikes.
Rates begin at $7 per month, but users can try it before they buy it with a free 30-day trial. The full-service Web templates will not only help brides plan their wedding and tell their love story, but it can also be used through the first anniversary and beyond.
In addition to the Web site templates, brides can use the Daphne & Clio site to select exclusive, signed artist prints that can be given as bridesmaid’s gifts or as a favor for wedding guests.
“Together, the online templates and the printed art give our brides a way to ‘brand’ their wedding and leave guests with a lasting impression of their special day,” says Fikes.
Daphne & Clio's premium giclee prints are available in two prices and sizes: $50 for a 5 in. by 7.5 in. and $6 for a 3.75 in. by 2.5 in. Each will fit into 8 in. by 10 in. or 4 in. by 5 in. frames, respectively. The larger prints are matted and individually signed by the artist.
