We’ve got a few designers having a go at making custom web-to-print skins for a test site. It’s been a bumpy ride for us as we had to go back and forth making changes in the markup, adding classes and ids, but we are getting some results now.
Note: you need to log out from your site if you get a 404 error looking at the test one.
You can see the menu is dramatically different from the pain boring default style. It does look better in FF and Safary than in IE, but it’s because IE doesn’t support rollovers as other browsers.
Anyone who wants a custom skin it’s a good time to start browsing around looking for websites you like. Once you have an example it’s easy to explain to a web designer what it is you want.
