Hi guys, please help us we need some feedback on the design of our landing page. Here is the Url: http://start.snappycanvas.com/oil/
We would deeply appreciate feedbacks on the design, over all layout of the page, text arrangements and if you would have additional inputs too on other aspects will give us a great help.
Thank you everyone.

I thought that the big blue rectangle saying “get started” was a button, it wasn't, it was part of the image. Either turn it into a HTML button or change the look of it so it doesn't look like a button.
The images below the big image could be made with transparent backgrounds to look better. The big image and logo could also be made with a transparent background, it is a close match to the colour but would be easier for you if you decide to change it. The “bring class to your walls” bit could be done with HTML as well.
On the steps, I'd place the ticks for all of the bullet points and keep the text in one colour. Oh and I'd have one style for ticks as well, you seem to have round ticks and then a tick in a box. Doesn't really seem to fit.
I'm not really keen on the blue text right at the top as well (the "call free to order" bit). It seems out of place with the rest of the website, make it look like the rest of the text but emphasize it with a bigger size, italics, or bold.
One last thing, I'd put your customer feedback higher on the page in a sort of bock quote form. Show that off more.
Hope that helps.

Call to action - Get started is not clickable, the one which is active falls below the fold. Ideally its always better to have the call to action above the fold.
Image looks little blurred.
Social media buttons are too tiny to notice.
Discounts doesn't seem to stand out.
These are the few things that caught my attention. Hope this helps

I had a look at the site before reading the reply posts so i wouldn't be swayed by their thoughts. But i have to agree with their replies.
The top banners aren't the same colour as the page background so i get a slight line around the images. If your business is selling graphics/photos then you have to make sure they are perfect on your site or it will imply to your customers that the product is going to be the same standard.
the main banner for me is quite fuzzy. As above would probably be worth switching to actual text rather than a jpg of text.
The 3 pictures below don't sit too well for me either and i'd perhaps try rounded edges to take some of the sharpness away from the page.
The icons for 1,2,3 (circle with a number) aren't consistant with the (1) being much lower in the circle than (2) and (3).
I would really avoid the 'slideshow' of the images. They change far too fast and can't be stopped so are a distraction to what you want the user to do.
On firefox i'm getting lots of places where the text is going outside of borders or overlapping. 'Order it with no risk. With our 100% Money Back Guarantee. '
overlaps so the next line reads...
'w and Approve your Proof before Shipping for added security. Don't like what you see? No Problem, we can easily revise or refund your purchase.'
Poem is spelt wrong on the 'poetic canvas' description.
Don't mean to be negative. Hope you find it useful.

Let me point out some improvements you can do on this landing page.
- The logo does not look professional at all.
- Remove the "gif" image that changes all the time, it gets annoying.
- Your images have white backgrounds, consider making it transparent.
- your call to action "order now" is below the fold. Move it higher up so that it is seen without having to scroll down/
- the overall message of the landing page is vague, i am not sure what you are trying to sell at first glance.
- consider adding prices for each of the packages.
- rather than having the testimonials in one blue box, separate it into three boxes and add quote marks.
8. social icons need to be bigger and put at top and bottom (did not even see it at the first time)

Please note that I do not mean to be harsh but sometimes it can come off as such.
Your website screams "cheap" to me. It does not look professional at all. I would suggest redesigning the whole thing. Try using a black background. The only time black backgrounds look good is with photography. Your site needs to scream "quality" since there are many other companies which do the same thing as you. Your website needs to tell your customers that you are better than them.
I hope this helps,

As previous member stated - it looks like a big cheap ad.
You should try some gradients and perhaps ditch the flashing portraits.
Perhaps you can try to look into some premade themes, like wordpress or similar?
Invest a couple of hundred bucks in a designer that can make your site more "premium" and you'll more orders that will cover those expenses quickly.

I must admit the design looks like something you would expect if the website was made in 2010. If you want your website to look professional and up-to-date, try following the design trends that are existing today, like flat design, loads of whitespace, good typography, etc. etc. It seems to me the website was either made by some professional who forgot how to update, or somebody who just started doing web design. I hope I do not sound to harsh, but that´s at least my initial thoughts.

Design on this page for me is to messy, on the first look I'm thought that is just another spam page opened in new window.
You don't have navigation bar , and link on the main picture 'Get strarted' don't work . Only link i have seen it's working is ORDER, what if I need help I must Call or Chat with you live, it wolud be bettet to have FAQ.
People are sceptic about page where you order something , page like yours must be more friendly , give space on page , change typography, add some links ....
i think that you will understand and correct design...cheers

The website is a good start and it has some interesting content. I am all for simplicity and this is a fairly good example.
You need to change the GET STARTEd to a HTML button whereby it leads you to a page where photos can be converted to canvas. Also the formatting seems to be irregular. This should be an easy fix.
Keep up the good work!

Hi Aldee, I really like your website and the landing page would make me as a customer hang around. One thing though is that your main pic when you land on the site has the words 'get started' in your face which is absolutely fine but the fact that it looks like a clickable button but it doesn't work as a button is a little confusing. I tried to click it expecting to be taken somewhere. I like the 1-2-3 steps underneath, they work very well. I would maybe try and get some feedback a little higher on the page. All in all, love the site. All the best with it.
