Web Sites

Commercial Web Sites Currently Online

Several of the web sites developed by Action Graphics staff are intranet sites that are behind secure firewalls and are not viewable to the public. However, we have developed a range of web sites for a variety of different businesses. Some of the business-to-business or business-to-consumer sites we have designed include:

Honest Tom's Auto Care Action recently designed a logo, matching business cards, and a brand new web site for this Sterling, Virginia auto care shop.

Intranet or Web Application Projects

Our web developers also have extensive experience with corporate intranets, web-based applicatiobns, and custom JavaScript, JScript and VBscript development. We also provide Java development services, but are only accepting small Java projects.

Some of our intranet work includes:

  • Educational Market.

    We contributed principally to the ePals Corporate web site, and developed hundreds of graphics and some web pages for ePals.com and for this educational software company's flagship reading program, In2Books.

  • Dynamic Employee Information.
    Accessing an Oracle database through Cold Fusion middleware, one of our intranet sites for a Fortune 500 company serves information dynamically in HTML pages from a constantly evolving employee database.

  • Fourth-Generation Application Prototype.
    Developed a prototype thin-client (web-based) Graphic User Interface (GUI) for the fourth generation of an existing software product. The original application was developed for the VAX system; the second and third versions were subsequently built to support the fat-client (Visual-Basic application) model for Windows 95 and NT. This prototype established the look and feel subsequently chosen by senior management of a leading CRM and ERP vendor for migrating this application to the web, potentially removing most operating system restrictions.

  • Interactive Web Wizards.
    Employing extensive use of JavaScript, we have developed browser-based "Wizards" to direct the user to answer questions that incorporate branching logic and terminate in a database pull using ASP (Microsoft's Active Server Page technology).

  • Frames-Based Departmental Web Site.
    Completely revamped an intranet site for a telecommunications/call center software company. This site features extensive use of frames for navigation, allowing users to view policies, procedures, and available templates from context-sensitive menus. Also includes detailed search capabilities for specific technical subject-area searches.

  • Process Reengineering Study Group corporate web site.
    Developed intranet site for this process group's Process Development effort. This project involved developing a Microsoft Access database and itegrating it with the web using Cold Fusion to dynamically serve poritons of the information maintained in the database for progress tracking.

  • Website Magazine.
    Developed an online magazine component to a commercial website for men's entertainment. This feature included an advice column, a news section, a riddles and jokes section, a letters and stories forum, and a nationwide entertainment guide. This commercial site is password protected and serves members only.

  • Corporate Operations Competency web site.
    Assisted in the testing and subsequent maintenance of a prototype intranet web site for a competency area on the Naval Aviation Systems Team, an organization consisting of military, civil service and government agencies serving U.S. Naval Aviation.

  • Online Documentation
    Developed end-user documentation for online access to business metrics accessed by top government officials.

Custom Business Card Design Samples

Action Graphics offers custom business card design to meet your business needs.

We can provide custom-designed business cards with laser thermography (raised print) or "flat" printing on a variety of business card stocks (standard vellum, laid and linen finishes, "AstroBright" fluorescent colors, and more. We can produce spot-color custom business cards typically within a week. Time in shop is based on the complexity of design and acceptance of orders. We can sometimes produce your cards within 2 days!

We can also design and print a card using foil stamping or embossing. These require more time (typically 10 to 14 business days), as a custom die must first be created from magensium, which is then pressed against a roll of colored foil, using heat and pressure to adhere the foil to the card for a glossy, glitzy, dynamic finish.

We use digital full-color processing to produce full-color business cards. Due to differences in production from spot color, these cards can have full-color bleeds at no cost, and are a colorful way to produce exciting designs economically. Typically these are produced on glossy card stock (available in 12 and extra-heavy 14-point stock), and typically take between a week and ten days. We can also produce some full-color designs on other card stocks. Contact us for details! Below are samples of some full-color business cards we have designed and printed.

Check out some samples of our custom-designed cards below. For rates, card stock, print colors, and more, see our business cards section!
