It’s great to work with Simone

Not only did I love the final product, but working with Simone was effortless. She is very responsive and sends you sneak peeks of your envelopes along the way. Just as I was recommended to Simone for calligraphy, I would definitely recommend her for all your calligraphy needs. Thanks Simone!
