TINK INK Publishing Site Reviewed on Webs.com Blog!

Posted by TINK INK Publishing on December 10, 2010 at 3:14 PM

We are so honored and humbled to have our site reviewed by the Webs.com team! Especially since it is a favorable review :)!!

Selecting Webs.com was an easy choice when we were setting up our site. This company offered a user friendly site for that was easy to navigate for novice website builders. They have a built in shopping cart which allowed us to be able to sell our book from the site. In addition, there are so many templates to choose from in a wide variety of themes. We've changed our look a couple of times since launching TINK INK and debuting The Bay Gull in July, 2009 and it is so easy modify the site!

Example Site Wednesday: TINK INK Publishing

We know that finding the perfect gift for a kid can be hard. Who knows what they are into these days and who’s to say that they will like the latest toy a month from now? The solution isn’t to run to the mall and grab a pack of socks that look like they may fit…don’t be that family member.

Instead, check out our example site this week: TINK INK Publishing, a site that promotes the work of Emerson M. Colwell, Jr., a children’s book author. TINK INK has only one book out so far, but it is wonderfully illustrated and written by Colwell himself and would make an excellent and unique (not to mention educational!) gift for a child. A plushy of the main character can also be ordered. Check out the site!


TINK INK Publishing is a solid website and we love how they use their own hand drawn artwork in the website header, it gives the website a welcoming feel and gives visitors a sense what the website is about. Check out these other Webs apps that TINK INK uses:

-          Webstore lets you organize all of your products easily for visitors to look through and purchase.

-          Contact page gives your visitors a channel of communication with you. It’s great for creating relationships, sealing a sale, or a way for visitors to troubleshoot.

-          CafePress App let you create shirts, mugs, bag, and much more for your website that visitors can purchase to support you.

We think that TINK INK has done an awesome job keeping their site simple. The top navigation bar makes browsing a breeze and there is enough empty space on each page to keep visitors interested.

Don’t worry, that’s not a typo. Empty or “white space” on a website is almost as important as the content itself. You want to make sure each webpage you create has just enough white space as this keeps each page from looking too cluttered. Having a lot of white space also keeps a visitor’s eyes moving so that text or links that are bolded or different colored stand out more. This is a great way to draw attention to a link that you want visitors to click on.

We hope you enjoyed this week’s example site. Stay tuned as we continue to help you with your holiday shopping with more awesome websites from our Webs users. If you want your website featured here, leave a comment below and you might be an example site in the future!

I really like the personal layout and desing of your website. I was just wondering if you ship to Canada? I do have two small children I think they would really enjoy reading your books.

Hi Cecile! Thanks for contacting us! We added the option on our site to ship to Canada. You'll find it in the Shop Online section. Thank you so much for checking out the site and we hope to ship you The Bay Gull in the near future!

I am the Family Engagement Manager at East Bay Head Start, serving children and families in Newport thru East Providence. We have an event scheduled for March 26th called Dad, Dinner & a Story. We have one of the dads reading a book, but I thought it would be great to look into having a storyteller. Are you available? It would be nice for the families to hear about their communities. Please contact me. Thank you.
