What did they have to say?

Emily was great to work with! After 3 years of using basically the same invitation for our gala event, we were ready for a change. Emily took our ideas and requirements and made them a reality. She was very responsive and provided us with options to review. She provided us with one of her own photos for use in the design, and sent me the packaged files so that I would have them in case we needed to make any tweaks (like adding sponsors) and for future use. We are very happy with the final product! Thank you, Emily!

Fun Fact

Fun Fact

We are a relatively small organization and our general approach to events and communications is to do what is necessary and not go too over the top. We want to be seen as professional, and a little scrappy at the same time.
