Recommendations

Liz worked for me for a few years and proved to be a very valuable asset to the company. She is one of the best graphic designers I know and can work well with all sorts of customers. She is trained in graphics and marketing so she understands the customers needs when it comes to a design for a company brochure or advertising piece. All of my customers that worked with Liz remarked what a great job she did and how pleasant she was to work with. I highly recommend Liz. - Frank Sinagra Owner at Allegra Print & Imaging
