What our clients have to say

Just wanted to say a quick thanks to you and your team! I think I speak for Gary as well as myself here when I say we’re incredibly happy with the vinyl posters in our window! The quality of the product far surpassed our expectations and with that in mind we plan on ordering the same product every month for our window to promote our special offers. I’ll also add how pleased we are with the turnaround, we sent the print ready design Thursday evening, signed off the proof the following Friday at 10am and picked up just 2 hours later! Wow what a great service, price and company! Thanks John, and many thanks to everyone else at Kestrel!
