Retrosnapshots E-Commerce Website

Retrosnapshots is an e-commerce website I started that sells vintage photos, maps, panoramics and posters. The site is built on the Magento e-commerce platform.

 

Project Overview

About 12 years ago, I moved my products of vintage prints and posters to a self-managed e-commerce platform. I was looking for something that was well supported, stable, and met the needs of my specific requirements.

Project Roles

Visual Design

Magento has some great themes in the marketplace so I used a base theme to create my own child theme and customized the code to better suit my needs.

Store Management

I have spent hundreds of hours adding products, integrating plugins, creating promotions, updating landing pages, and performing security updates to the core Magento framework.

Email & Social Media Marketing

I send out periodic emails to my customer list with specials and featured products, then use social media to amplify my reach with additional offers and interesting articles.
