I designed a studiopress website http://www.gsfbolt.com using the genesis framework. Consulted for about 60 hours in house at the company did a complete redesign, made changes as requested worked through the network security of the company as there was an issue preventing them from viewing their corporate website internally within the building at the company. I did custom graphics and coding and redirected their old site from the old hosts. In total I spent about 200 hours on this project. Im looking for some feedback on the quality of the website and what the value of my work is / what to charge for this type of wp studiopress project. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
The website is http://www.gsfbolt.comhttp://www.gsfbolt.com
The printable brochure PDF on the header i good. This could be used to build an email list. How did you create that?
Otherwise, the site looks old style. Not sure if that is the look you want but it looks like you have built it on an old theme.
I would look at the new Pro themes.
Looks like you have some work to do with installing an online system for the shop.
WooCommerce or iThemes Exchange might interest you.
It looks very clean but some styling is needed in my opinion.

Regarding "redirected their old site from the old hosts" rather than the home page only html redirect you have in-place you might explore using 301 redirects for each of the pages from the old site at goldenstatefasteners.com to the analogous page at your new site.
What I am after is what would you charge to build a site like this?
The printable brochure image I made custom in photoshop. There is a text on a path tool in PS but I just used a separate layer rotated it and then plapped it on top with a few extra tweaks.
To put it in the header area like that I edited the header code and the ad code if I remember right. I remember I had to tweak the code in the stylesheet a few times to get it all to blend and size just right. Use firebug to check out the code.
