Made In The USA

Bold City is proud to not outsource our projects to offshore companies for production.  We handle all design & development right here in the U.S.A..  This decision is never easy to make as, with many products, there can be a significant cost-advantages for moving overseas.  However, there can also be significant disadvantages that we’ve found after operating for nearly a decade in this industry:


1. Poorly Written Code

The number one issue with offshore development companies is the quality of code that is produced.  While we won’t get into technical discussions, the code delivered by offshore companies can be insecure, not efficient, difficult to build upon, and slow to execute.  While the code may work now, it can quickly cause complications when you go to expand on your website or as technology changes and the code becomes unable to run on modern servers.


2. Security Issues

Building on point #1, another major issue we’ve seen with offshore development companies is the security element of custom development.  Sure, the code may work but how long do you think it’s going to last if a hacker can drop your entire database table with a single line of code?  Furthermore, do you really want offshore companies having direct access to your website?


3. Communication Issues

Time zones can be a major issue when it comes to deadlines and getting projects completed.  What happens if you have a question or issue with your website at 9:00AM when you arrive at the office?  You have to wait until 8:00PM that night for the offshore we development company to get back with you.  Not acceptable in our opinion.  Having our team work U.S. business hours is a major benefit to our success.


4. Replication Of Code

We’ve seen many cases where a website that was supposed to be developed exclusively for company A, gets replicated almost exactly to companies B and C who are direct competitors.  Furthermore, companies B & C pay a fraction of the cost that company A (the original company) paid.



For the above reasons and more, we’ve made the decision to complete all design & development work by individuals in the U.S.A..  We’re proud of our decision and feel it ultimately provides a better finished product to our clients.  A product that can be supported and maintained for years to come.

Bold City Design is rated 5 out of 5.0 stars based on 11 review(s).


These guys are full of energy and great ideas.  They are local to the area and have a great reputation but also young enough to bring new technology and fresh ideas.  We had previously been working with another company on website marketing but the relationship had grown stale.  The same thing again and again and the results simply were not there.  Bold City has provided great direction and a new plan that we’re excited to see through.  I would certainly recommend them to others.

We hired Bold City to handle a marketing campaign for a newly released product we were rolling out.  We searched high and low before making a decision but the reviews & portfolio of Bold City coupled with cost considerations made this decision a no-brainer.  Bold City has been terrific crafting both an organic marketing campaign and PPC campaign to help drive our product sales.  While still in the early stages, we’re already seeing results and are looking forward to 2019!

Cabe and crew have been nothing but professional and highly organized throughout our entire website design project with them.  They had excellent recommendations in terms of content and flow of our website.  We would definitely recommend them to others.

We LOVE Bold City.  If you’ve been searching for a web design company and afraid you’ll choose the wrong one, stop worrying!  You’ve found them.  Just don’t get too busy and forget about us :).

We’re a Jacksonville based technology company that needed to outsource a WordPress project.  A previous employee we had moved on from the company and we had nobody that understood our internal WordPress system.  Bold City really impressed me by how quickly they were able to pickup where our employee had left off.  They had several recommendations that improved our processes and made the system run better.  They were fair with pricing and will continue to be our go to company for any and all WordPress related questions or work.  Great job guys!

I’ve been working with Cabe on and off for nearly a decade.  We met on a mutual project and I’ve continued to keep him close due to his understanding of WordPress and ability to handle pretty much anything I throw at him custom development-wise.  Me being based in Canada, we’ve never actually met face to face but his communication skills are hard to find in a developer.  I don’t believe he’s ever missed a deadline and he’s always been willing to work with me to solve complex problems.  I can’t say enough about his ability to organize complex issues down to simple processes.  I’m sure Bold City follows his attention to detail and fulfillment of their promises.  I would recommend them to anybody.

The best of the best.  You’ve earned a client for life.  For anybody else looking, these guys know their stuff. Fast, affordable and understand that times money.

Can I give them 6 stars?!? These guys rock.  Local St. Augustine company that is always available when you need them.  If you’re looking for a great web design company you’ve just found it!

We’re big fans of Bold City and have been since we started our website back in 2014.  Always very easy to get a hold of and give honest answers to our questions.  Fair with pricing and very reliable.  What else could you ask for?

We had been with our previous web design company for nearly 5 years.  They were good but we didn’t feel like what they were doing was working.  We decided to make the switch to Bold City and the change of pace has been better than expected.  Great communication and bringing fresh ideas to our business and marketing.  If you’re looking to make change or starting a new business I would highly recommend Bold City.

- Jane Thomas


Trust me, your go to guys when it comes to website design.  As a general contractor, I wouldn’t call myself tech savvy.  These guys were efficient at explaining the process and delivered on every promise they made.  They know what their talking about and do great work.  Would recommend them to anybody.
