“Suzanne and I have worked together on several projects and she has been able to capture the vision of my business in print. I own a bakery and so much of what I do is visual. Suzanne consolidated and organized my written content as well as my photographs and was extremely professional. Her customer service goes above and beyond and she even personally delivered brochures from the printer that had a deadline directly to me! I highly recommend Suzanne and Whale Works.”
