    Yay! :P Now I gotta find some very good ways to advertise. So far the new site has been up a little over a week and the only sales I got were out of stock

    Why is your logo saved as a JPEG? It looks terrible! There's artifacts all around it and the text looks blurry. If you have the source file, save it as a PNG.

    I think it looks good :P....unless it's my eyes. The PNG file is much bigger and has problems with older browsers. There's really no problem with the JPG.

    An LCD laptop monitor not more than six months old. It's definitely not just me: zoom in and you can see the grey artifacts around the white.
    @ivoog: PNGs have no problems and have been supported for a long time. This is a common misconception. Versions of IE before 7 had problems with alpha transparency (but supported index). A PNG saved in PNG-8 format will be smaller than a GIF of the same type. If you must insist on using a JPEG, save it as a higher-quality one, rather than the low- to medium-quality ones you're using now. number.jpg should definitely be a PNG-8 (or a GIF. But don't save it as a GIF).

    Thanks, I'll think about it. It's not really a big deal, I don't see anything and who is going to zoom in and stare at the logo? lol

    Anything else you would recommend? Is the website super good?

    I have a crt monitor and I don't have this problem, but this is not important since ttf and lcd are popular today.

    I didn't need to zoom in to notice the artifacts, though, and leaving these in gives an unprofessional, spammy look.
    I do like the graphics and colors, but I can't find a search function...

    There is no need for a search function. There's like 30 products only and by clicking the category you want narrows it to less than 15 products per category.

    What i'm looking for now is ways to advertise the website :P

    As most of them said, there is no search box. But the site looks very nice and great to me. I am not a techie guy but what I can say is that you need to improve on your traffic. You can do either a PPC and get more backlinks to your site that are high in PR. Promotion is I guess is needed. your daily page views is still quite low ( less than 400 pageviews) so you need to increase that.

    PPC can be expensive though. Submitting articles to article directories like ezinearticles is a good place to start for one way backlink plus there are so many sites wher you can leave a keyword link to your site.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks.

    That is what I am doing for now. I am doing PPC advertising to get sales and at the same time trying to get more backlinks. Can anyone recommend any good SEO services that raise my natural ranking in search engines?

    There are so many out there but I don't know which ones I should use.

    Question, how exactly would I make a .PNG with a transparent background that doesn't make a gray background in IE 6? Thanks.
