why me?
I specialize in troubleshooting any production problems BEFORE they cause client
headaches. The combination of design AND production expertise in all applications
makes me an easy choice when you are considering any or all of the following:

    Direct Mail (Postcards, tri-folds, surveys)
    Annual Reports
    Trade Show Graphics
    Posters, billboards, large format
    Retouching assessing photo quality prior to placement

The most current versions of design software and state-of-the-art computers and
peripherals allow me to serve clients not only on a personal level but in a complete
professional capacity–whether a simple ad, brochure or 100+ page magazine, I am able
to supply complete materials to you, your client or any printer.

    3 G5 Macs and 2 PC’s running Windows XP
    Apple Cinema and LaCie color calibrated monitors for consistent management
    Graphic Design flatbed and film scanners
    2 HP designjet plotters (with pms matching ability). Color and b&w laser printers
    Back-up storage into the TB’s
    Professional Digital Cameras
    Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat Pro and Quark 7.3 (and a bunch more...)
