  • Utilize multiple sets of eyes for quality control
  • We only hire experts to perform the required duties of every service and have professional administrative support for best quality control. While we are not perfect, and our clients are responsible to review and approve work, we do our best. Also, if you are requiring a rush project, we ask for you to have a second set of eyes to review the work too.
  • Making ourselves available when it works for your schedule. While this is not always possible, we do adjust our schedules and accept after-hour calls when there is a true client emergency. Your care and appreciation for our work is the impetus of our flexibility. If normal operating hours are not possible for you, we will have to discuss and agree upon terms well in advance of any work.
  • While we love to help our clients who need work in a hurry, operating without planning is not our standard mode of operation. If every project is rushed, and this is the service you need, a rush fee may be added to your project.
