Place Settings - Event Hire Company Web Design

Everything but the kitchen sink... actually, they have that too!

With such a diverse product list, their website needed to be unique. Place Settings needed an eCommerce solution to make getting their products easy. But every event is different. Every event is one-of-a-kind. And that means every estimate is one-off, too.

New for 2018, we revised the Place Settings website with a powerful “Quote Engine” that tracks products as customers add them to a cart, then once details like event location and date are entered, Place Settings are able to manually create a bespoke estimate for the event. Place Settings then deliver and later collect all hired products on the date and location of the event.

Metal Potato also provided our logo design service to Place Settings, creating a modern, minimal logo to round out a new look across the entire company. It’s a relationship that’s blossomed over a 11 year timespan here at Metal Potato, after building their very first website in 2011.

The entire website is hosted on Potato Care, our world-class, WordPress hosting and maintenance service with incredibly fast load times that make browsing on mobile intuitive, and nearly instant.


Handing over our website to someone else was daunting but Metal Potato understood the stresses of running your own business, and to combat the feeling of overwhelm, were available 24/7 (literally!). They were great to work with!
