Jimpix.co.uk is a small independent website based in North-West England. I started it in December 1999.
I run the site as a hobby, as it's a fun place to learn about web technology, do something "arty" with
ecards, and it provides a place to display my photos and to have a tinker with random usernames as I like silly word combinations.
