About PatchPress


We emphasize using tried and true methodologies for our work. The field is constantly being bombarded with new technologies and approaches that are often more useful in theory than in actual practice. WordPress itself is based on technology that has been around for a long time, so our philosophy is to keep things simple and create solutions that are efficient and robust.

PatchPress is owned and operated by Andrew Stephens, a computer programmer of twenty years with fifteen of them including building and fixing WordPress sites. He worked with graphic artist and marketing agencies for many years and in 2022 he decided to start his own company, PatchPress, focused on offering professional WordPress services to the Peterborough and surrounding areas. These services include WordPress development, management, troubleshooting, and hosting.

PatchPress specializes in all things WordPress-related: development, theming, plugins, e-commerce, hosting, etc. Some sites we’ve built include e-commerce stores, membership sites, video/educational portals, and real estate sites with listings.

There are a lot of graphic artists out there who’ve learned WordPress to complement what they do; that’s not us. We’re programmers and server administrators who understand what’s happening under the hood. While WordPress is very user-friendly, it’s still pretty common to need professional intervention somewhere down the line. With websites, it is our opinion that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure; in other words, get a professional involved as early in the process as possible.
