About Pixel & Ink

Pixel & Ink is a small, but mighty web design studio based in Ashburton, New Zealand. We specialise in web and digital solutions for small to medium businesses.

So, who runs the show here?

Sara Stephens is the Big Enchilada at Pixel & Ink. A Mum of 4 who went into web design after handing over the reigns of her 1st successful business. She continues to be on a mission to get small businesses just like hers online and in front of their customers.

This is her story..

They say that your Vibe attracts your Tribe.

Small business owners are my tribe. Entrepreneurs and small business owners radiate a kind of mesmerising energy. The kind that just uplifts you and makes you want to be around them all the time. They hustle hard, never take things at face value and work tirelessly for 80 hours a week just so they don’t have to work 40 for someone else.

You see them at coffee shops hunched over laptops or wrapped in their blankets on the couch at 2am busting out some new idea that woke them up. Their signature style could be jeans, maybe jandals, they could also be a clean shirt over pyjama pants at a Skype meeting–no judgment there. They are in control of their present and have exciting plans for the future. They are parents, husbands and wives, sons and daughters. And they are out there smashing it, making a difference every day.

Ideas are born in traffic, in the line at the grocery store and (some of the best ones) after 3 glasses of wine. The best of them stay and evolve into plans and dreams, strategies and business plans and an all-consuming thought process of how to bring them to life.

But when it comes to connecting with potential customers, a website is an essential tool. Without a website today, your business is invisible. Fact. So, to really get discovered by clients, customers and fans for life. You need a kickass website.

This is where we come in.

Maybe you have tried the DIY website thing already. If so, you will already know that there is really no substitute for a polished and professionally built website that reflects the values and personality of your business. While also giving you a competitive edge.

Our job is to create stunning, strategically designed, seamlessly user friendly and fully functional websites. That just do what they should do. And it is what we do best.

Whether you are looking for a shiny information portal for your customers to find you online or you need a fully operational online store with all the bells and whistles to sell your 1000’s of products, we will create a unique online presence that is tailor made just for you. So, while you get on with running your business empire, you can leave the rest to us with total peace of mind.

I’m In! Where do I Start?

We work closely with each of our clients in order to give them our undivided attention, rather than juggling multiple projects all at once. Because of this we only open a few select bookings every month.

So, if you think this is your vibe, let’s have a coffee or an online chat and discuss your website project. Head on down to the services page and check out some of the packages on offer and let’s get started. Have a question about the process? Find out what you can expect here.

Don’t see anything you like or are ready for yet? Let’s create an experience that is the right fit for you.

We can’t wait to start working on your project with you.
