|Why do I LOVE ShrinkTheWeb?
When I decided to build an online shopping mall I thought it would be cool to display shop images using a screenshot of website home pages. I came across a plugin that used a service called ShrinkTheWeb to generate images. I thought it would be an ideal solution and decided to give it a try!
I launched my site eViewVillage (www.eviewvillage.com) in Mar. 2013 with 50 shops. My site has grown to more than 630 shops!
For the past 3 years I've been using ShrinkTheWeb to generate and refresh the shop images. I am able to keep the images current using a Refresh all application that refreshes all images in a matter of minutes! This would be impossible to do manually.
Over the years I have periodically submitted support tickets when I've run into problems. Brandon and his staff are incredibly responsive and have addressed every issue quickly and professionally and provided updates in a timely manner. They have also provide numerous enhancements over the years.
ShrinkTheWeb is an awesome service that is responsible for generating and refreshing the shop images on eViewVillage!

|We have been avid users of ShrinkTheWeb since 2012 on our website www.ozw.co.au, which is a highly intensive site requiring more than average thumbnail images for our listings. Being one of Australia’s largest directory websites we needed something reliable, fast and cost effective.
STW ran flawlessly for ages, and the monthly fee we paid to ShrinkTheWeb was miniscule compared to other services. Then a few years later we encountered a problem. (I hasten to add, our fault).
I was always taught from my father since I was about 14, that the value of a business relationship is not valued by how few problems it has, but how a business deals with issues when they arise.
Incredibly, STW did not let us down and have an old-fashioned ethos of integrity, that is unparalleled in today’s apathetic IT world. Nowadays, so many vendors seek to just ignore or blame the customer, then make the customer prove otherwise. And if you are in IT you know exactly how it feels to be given the run around by unintelligent call centre staff who really don’t care if your issue is resolved.
When we ran into problems this year, after 5 trouble free anniversaries, I only had to write a single e-mail to ShrinkTheWeb and they were all over it in no time. They were curious about my issues, Interested, engaged, investigative and above all not dismissive. In short they were truly amazing. True engineers and not just a voice box with a script.
They simply took it at “face value” that ‘the customer has an issue, so let’s investigate and fix it’.
I have spent 35 years in IT running multi-million dollar organisations all over the world, including Corporate, Government and Military.
I can tell you beyond a doubt that there are two kinds of engineers: Those who tell you “Im Trying, but its so hard” and those who tell you “I’m really interested in your problem and I’d love to try and fix it, because that is my passion”
STW are in the latter category.
I wish you guys all the success in the world – You really deserve it.
OZW Pty Ltd
Just amazing response time, leadership and the oversight of the CEO, who is obviously really passionate about his product, made me really proud to do business with them. I have not seen this level of customer support and expertise in well over a decade.
I really cannot recommend these guys enough.

|Awesome service! Absolutely love it! So much better than the other website screenshot service providers!|
Member Since: Oct 03, 2012
|Our company tried several other thumbshot providers. ShinkTheWeb was the best option for our website, http://www.jasminedirectory.com, a website which heavily uses thumbshots of the listed websites. Their customer support is immediate and just awesome.
Thank you, ShinkTheWeb.

|ShrinkTheWeb has made keeping my website design portfolio updated easy. It was always a pain to update our screenshots once we updated a client's site and now it's automatic. Good stuff! Thanks!|

|seriously the best thumbnail service i have seen and i have tested several different ones..
Member Since: May 29, 2010
|STW has been the easiest, most straightforward site thumbnailer out there. Most had several issues, like improperly rendering rich pages, etc, but not STW. I m easily going to upgrade to Pro and get the page specific capture to enhance the experience on my site. I was very quickly able to use the PHP API provided to incorporate STW onto my homepage.
Thanks you so much for a great service.

I'm a hobby-blacksmith from Sweden and I've set up a list of links to blacksmiths around the world (~1500 sites).
I use the pop-up for every link on the page and my visitors like it, it's fast and easy to browse among thousands of links and find what you are looking for.
STW is one of the few snap-shot services on the market that really works !
Take a look at www.feblacksmith.com/links.htm
Thanks to the STW crew !

|Shrink The Web is the best! I started with one of the other guys. There, many of the previews didn't display even after months.
STW quickly updates even obscure sites and provides previews in [three] sizes. Last but not least, Brandon is very forgiving of idiots. I'm living proof.

|I just wanted to give you kudos:
First, for the proactive surprise refund you issued via Paypal. That was a very classy and customer service-oriented move. You NEVER see companies do something like that. It just further reiterates what great focus on customer service you have at Shrink the Web.
Second, congrats on the migration! I am sure it has been more challenging than expected.
Third, the new features you are rolling out look great, especially the "native resolution" feature.
Keep up the great work! A loyal STW user

|I am simply loving your service. I experienced a lot of troubles with other thumbnail providers out there as their thumbnails were queued for over a week. It doesn't take more than 5 minutes from your side which is just superb.
Thanks a lottt for this excellent service. I am highly impressed.
Member Since: May 08, 2008
