weeblyWeebly. Isn’t that the free site where people who don’t know how to make websites go to make websites?

Well, Dave covered Weebly 5 Best Blog Sites Other Than Wordpress and Blogger 5 Best Blog Sites Other Than Wordpress and Blogger Read More as a blogging platform, and Erez covered Weebly Build A Slick, Professional Website For Free With Weebly Build A Slick, Professional Website For Free With Weebly The other day, I was checking out a freeware app called Folder Axe; it’s a lovely utility with an equally-lovely website, that feels elegant and professionally crafted. Imagine my surprise when I scrolled down to... Read More in 2011. It’s clear from Erez’ examples that he does know how to design a decent website, but if you explore most of the sites that are out there, they make some of the old MySpace pages look well-designed.

Okay, maybe not that bad, but you get my point.

If you explore the world of sites, you’ll see what I mean. They are almost all sites with horrible color schemes, mismatched fonts, unprofessional headers and overall, they just look like the sort of websites that were created back in the 90s, before we had widespread use of CSS formatting and easy to program page scripting.

Weebly Websites that Are Pretty Good

Instead of focusing on the negative, I actually wanted to try and scour the Internet for any Weebly based sites that stand apart from the majority of other such sites. These are websites that are well structured, aesthetically pleasing and could pass as a professionally designed website – if it weren’t for the “” at the end of the domain.

The first one up is DEA Design. The site was created by Danuta Antas-Wo?niewska of Poland, who – not surprisingly – is a graphic design artist. Through the site, she’s offering her graphic design expertise to companies and businesses for advertising development.

The site is written in Polish, but that’s nothing a quick Google Translation can’t cure. The header design is very clearly professionally done, with the background shades blending well with the overall color scheme of the site. The placement and font style of the menu, headers and text are all really well done and make this a clear choice for this list of great Weebly sites.

Next up is JP Custom Apparel, a website created by Justin Prime, yet another artist. In this case, rather than electronic art, Justin creates art on clothes and features them on this site.

weebly websites

I love the creative use of the text design in the right column, the well-designed header image, and the professionally done top menu. The background color is a little bit hard on the eyes, but at least it matches the header text inside the content area.

Another beautiful site created by yet another artist, is ShellysCreativeSide.

weebly websites

The design is extremely simple, but that’s what makes it beautiful. With a well-scripted drop-down menu for navigation, Shelly offers a peak into her creative pastimes including photography, Photoshop, hand-crafted jewelry and even sculptures. The header is a cool font, and the floating box has a cool frame to it that gives it a professional touch no matter how large or small you size your browser window.

Another site with a fairly professional design is a real estate agency called Kanata Homes. The only hint that the site is amateur is the misspelling of “Angents” in the title.

weebly websites

Other than that, the title font and logo is cool, the header image is really nice, and the menu is pretty neat – it highlights with a header bar that points to the active selected menu item. Pretty sweet!

Another interesting site for a lot of different reasons is A Banned Cribb. This site is the creative product of what appears to be a decent comedian. He created an avatar that looks like a mix between Leisure Suit Larry of Sierra fame and Elvis Presley.

weebly sites

The site is infrequently updated – the last post was in December. However his writing is actually pretty funny, he offers a “Girl of the Month” section, and most importantly the overall site design is clean with colors, headers and fonts that blend well and look good.

Proving that artists make for the best Weebly website designers, another decent site is Bibi’s Custom Hand Painted Art.

weebly sites

In addition to the beautiful header that displays a sample of the hand-painted art, the site lays out other samples of art in a nice, professional format. The one drawback of the site is that it is exceedingly simple and plain – but the clean design places it on the list of the best sites.

Another interesting Weebly site design is that of Urban Decay 39. Urban Decay 39 offers designer iPhone cases, t-shirts, messenger bags and other products featuring interesting urban graffiti designs.

weebly sites

The owner is a young kid with a blog that he also runs on the same site. I couldn’t find his name – but you can find his photo on the About Me page. It isn’t Amazon – but it’s a decent business site, complete with the ability to make purchases, even though the actual purchase takes place on Zazzle and not on the site itself.

I think my favorite site of them all is definitely Stick and Strum. This is a site created by Shane Nicholas who teaches guitar, drums, piano and even ukulele for over 7 years.

The site is where Shane features his students, shows highlights from his student recitals, and offers his own blog. I love the theme – how the header image floats over the dark graffiti backdrop and how the background blends from dark to white as you move from left to right. Very cool stuff.

Another clean, professional design is that of Magnolia Visual Arts, a photography site that seeks out clients for modeling shoots, family portraits and even pet portraits.


The main site features a slideshow portfolio of some of the model clients, and links at the bottom take you to samples of landscape, pets and other photography samples. There is also a parallel blog site that offers even more stunning examples of the photography captured by the artist of Magnolia Visual Arts.

If you look through other Weebly based sites on the Internet, you’ll see how hard it is to find sites like the ones I’ve listed here. Quality isn’t usually a word you would use to describe them – that’s all I have to say.

So, while the sites above may not be the best sites on the Internet, within the painfully inadequate world of Weebly web design, these web designers performed some impressive feats considering the limited tools offered there.

Have you ever made a Weebly site? Do you know of any that are actually pretty good? Share your own thoughts in the comments section below.

    I'm a big weebly fan and have been using weebly for years now. recently they have improved greatly. The issue I have though, and always have had, is the fact the standard templates, not only are pretty bland and difficult to make look great. They function well, and obviously integrate well with all of the weebly functionality, however no matter how many websites I see using the standard weebly themes, they still look very much "home made"

    I started researching the custom template market, and there are quite a few companies now that design premium weebly templates especially for weebly.

    I've since been to several companies and generally speaking really have not been very impressed. some of the themes look great, but functionaly are not great... I don't by any means boast to be a coder or developer but I know my way around css and html... The issue is i've found with so many premium weebly themes is the fact they are pretty badly coded... conflicts left right and center. code not commented for people that don't know what they are looking at and generally speaking not very easy to use in the back end (even if they look good when published)... Excuse me if i'm wrong, but isn't the reason we all use Weebly is because it's easy to use??

    I tried Baamboo for a few themes.. Not bad but a little clunky. the end result was ok, and they do have a lot of selection. the main issue was the really slow customer service and lack of understanding when you ask anything other than something that i'm guessing is a frequent question... i waited 6 days for a response to one of my tickets.

    Next I bought a few of the themes from Webfire Themes. Erm... Head turners. their themes are really neat looking, their support is unbelievable. One of their support team helped me make an "unsupported customization" which i wasn't expecting at all.. They responded to my ticket within minutes and really took their time to help me... also the themes I bought (Constructor and Parallax) were so easy to use. They have this tool they have invented called the WIDG which lets you design your own custom widgets for your site. I recommend these all day long.

    Finally I also tried Modern Web Themes... All i'm going to say is, you get what you pay for... The themes barely work. so many bugs and bad design in there. even the demo sites don't work very well.

    I really wanted to try out a divtag theme too, but looks like they have gone out of business or something. Looking around online they had some good reviewes and some bad ones. But some of their themes looked good... I do plan to purchase other templates from other companies too as I get the need to, but for now. the top spot in my opinion goes to webfire themes.

    Great article by the way... I have been looking for something suitable to post a comment about my experiences.

    We are providing our customers with weebly development services for many years. No complaints... sites are doing good in search engines too.

    Our clients are now not fully depended on us for things like minor changes, typo errors or any update in contents. They do it by their-self. We now only have to deal with any major issue.

    I have been a Weebly customer for 5 years now and I love it. It's easy to use, has a great support center and helpful blogs with suggestions and creative ideas. I followed all the SEO instruction on their support section and my new website was on second page search with Google in just 1 day. I also like their gallery of free photos that I use on my blog.

    I'm definitely a Weebly fan... even with my non-linear 'challenge' I am able to set up and maintain a website for my hand carved wooden spoons. The one drawback I've found is that when you add new images/information.. it defaults to the bottom of the page and I have to individually move each element to the top of the page. Having to manipulate this many images manually... it deters me from updating my site as often as I would like. Wish they could see their way to make it an option to automatically place the NEW elements to the top of the pages. It would save HOURS. But... like I said... still a Weebly fan.

    We use Weebly for our rural community website, which includes integration with google docs and google calendars. At the time we build our site some Weebly features didn't suite our needs, such as contact forms and self service reservations, so we either developed our own or used a 3rd party hosted platform.

    In my opinion, those websites that 'don't" suck, suck. I built my website with weebly, and since I made the account I use many years ago, I can connect my domain with the free plan. I only pay approximately $9 a year for the domain.

    I've been searching for examples of Weebly blogs and sites. This is the best I've found so far. Thank you for putting it out there. I started a Weebly website with my friend, a rancher who breeds McNab collies. I have zero knowledge and have watched tutorials - so tedious and difficult when one has specific questions. I am looking for how to create sections on the blog to contain certain articles instead of a long row that scrolls down and away. For instance, my friend is writing short stories about ranch life, for instance a series called My First McNab. I've seen other blogs where you can click on a "box" that contains the series. The website is If you could give us some feedback, that would be great! Thanks!

    Our ecommerce website is built using Weebly.

    I'm looking for an alternative though. It's impossible to use other tools such as insite search, ratings and reviews, payments processors and even CMS with Weebly. I really do not recommend Weebly be used by anyone that needs to create a professional customer experience.

    I'm a recent graphic design graduate and like many other recent grads, I didn't have the means to afford to get a website done. I knew html and css coding, other than that I didn't have a clue of what to do. I happened to have found Weebly through a Google search and I instantly fell in love with not only the easy of use but also the flexibility in customization.

    Anyways, feel free to browse through my portfolio website. It was created practically from scratch from design to coding. Hope you like it guys. =D

    What a very nice surprise to find out that one of the websites, for my DEA Design studio, I have created with Weebly, has been mentioned here:) Weebly is a wonderful tool. Two years ago I have turned to it for I really had no idea how to do websites. Since then, with Weebly's flexible drag and drop tools I have created many websites for my purpose as well as for clients. I have learnt how to edit HTML and CSS and change to look of templates provided by Weebly. For me, it is a great fun like playing with Lego or other such toys:)

    Thank you so much for featuring my site - A Banned CRIBB on your list of 9 Websites that actually don't suck. While I do not agree with your opinion (I think my website sucks) I am honored netherless. I have not updated the site in awhile because I have been working on another website that defies the impossible and somehow manages to be an even worse site than A Banned CRIBB.

    The new site is now complete, and the people I created it for are like my ex girlfriends - very unsatisfied. Now that it is done I can go back to A Banned CRIBB and continue to write annoying, pointless, uninteresting articles while formulating my plan to dominate the world.

    Getting serious for a moment I would like to sincerely Thank You. I am planning on writing an article very soon inspired by the site's appearance in

      For a dentist, the color scheme is way too dark. It should be bright and vibrant. Wayyyy less red, people don't want to think red / blood when looking for a dentist. Speaking of which, your logo is too "sharp".. same thing about associating dentist with sharp objects. You should soften it up with a sans-serif font.
      Other than that, the site looks good!
