About The Company

Wissota Skate Sharpeners is a Minnesota based company that is committed to manufacturing 100% American-made skate sharpeners. For every skating fanatic out there that wants the best in accuracy, precision, and durability Wissota makes it easy to own and operate your very own NHL quality skate sharpener with all the bells and whistles. A product meant to last and the sweet convenience of ensuring a sharp blade every time is The Wissota Way.

Ground Zero Objectives

One doesn’t have to linger in Minnesota for very long to know we all have a little hockey fan in us! So when Wissota Skate Sharpeners came our way, it was an easy choice for 8bitstudio to work with such a dynamic team to showcase such outstanding products. But, their old site needed a bit of a refresh to gain more responsiveness and usability for their customers, and with a bit of 8bit magic, the end result was phenomenal. A collective design approach with e-commerce capabilities, modern elements, and a smooth user experience, this site now equally represents the same precision and quality they’ve perfected into their products. And now that the site has gone live, it has the means to deliver.
