"Over the last decade and with two provincial organizations, I have had the pleasure of using Mary Anne G. for our newsletter, pamphlet and handbook printing needs. We have used both a mailed newsletter and an electronic format and are extremely happy with the work. Her assistance in picking and generating a new logo was easily and professionally executed. The ability to assess what is needed (and more) tells us that she loves her work and will try her best to have a satisfied customer base. She is capable of working with sometimes difficult material and still meeting deadlines with an excellent product output.
...should be high on anyone's list for graphics and printed material needs."
