What Clients Say About Stripe Graphics

My company contracted with Stripe Graphics to develop and complete a total logo design package with extension into our web site design as well as ads for publication and so much more. Karen has proven to be the ideal professional to work with ... her initial design for our logo hit the nail on the head, we have had more positive comments on our logo design than ever imagined. We have used the logo in car art, on logo wear, in printed materials as well as our web site and other social media. It has proven to be highly visible as well as highly relatable to our business – garnering many, many compliments from clients, vendors and more. And, even though we are still a very new company – open less than four weeks, today I called upon someone who was not expecting me at her shop and she told me she had seen our ad in the local paper this past weekend. With fewer than two insertions, a total stranger already had full recognition and retention of our company identity. That is phenomenal and, I suspect, very typical of Karen’s striking design skills!  

This combination of design skills with Karen’s technical capabilities makes her the ideal graphics resource for anyone wishing to make an impact with their marketing. Additionally, Stripe Graphics provided us with clear estimates for the work and stayed on budget and on time throughout our process, except for where we altered the time frame for specific elements. So, not only did our project proceed on time and on budget, but Stripe was extremely nimble in responding to our changing demands. Finally, Karen was hands on, keeping us apprised at all times about the status of the varied elements in our project and remaining organized and on top of the process from start to finish.  In simple terms, using the words of an old pro “You’d be crazy not to hire her!”

I’ve been working with Karen Cowl of Stripe Graphics for many years on various projects from very simple advertisements to large complex jobs like brochures and multi-lingual promotional banners in character based languages like Korean, Chinese and Japanese. We have always found Karen’s work to be of the highest quality; she is able to understand our needs, budget and has always been able to work within our tight timelines. I have no hesitation in recommending Karen’s work to anyone who wants to have a positive experience dealing with a graphic designer.

Karen Cowl’s focus and timeliness on my project was only exceeded by her professionalism and artistic design. Although I am sure she was working with many more clients than me, she always was quite responsive and very communicative. Her suggestions for both organization and typesetting for my book, as well as cover design were invaluable. I consistently get positive comments on the cover, and the cover of the book is instrumental in getting the reader’s initial interest. I would highly recommend Karen for typesetting and design.

Karen has always taken responsibility for her work, constantly striving for the best results possible within budget. Karen has real knowledge of both old school production techniques, and modern digital file preparation. Because of her experience, knowledge and friendly to do business with attitude, I strongly recommend Karen's services to my customers looking for design and file production services.

Stripe Graphics was integral to the development of a corporate identity for Calico Communications in the way of company logo, business card and website design. The results were excellent, prompting compliments from clients.

Again, the results have been consistently first class with the overall products generating recognition from clients and a return on investment of increased business for my company. Stripe Graphics is professional, customer service-oriented, extremely responsive and sensitive to deadlines, and never fails to deliver designs that may make my company the envy of my competition!
