Testimonials for Jimmydog Design Group's Stephanie Belcher
Jimmydog Design Group's Stephanie Belcher is a print professional with nearly two decades of experience in publishing. Here's what some of her clients have said about her work.
"I decided to publish a book titled Sell More Mattresses, Guaranteed comprised of articles and columns that I had written for Sleep Savvy Magazine. The editor, Nancy Butler, recommended Stephanie Belcher to do the work of designing and formatting. I am so pleased that Stephanie provided a turnkey operation, including working with the book publisher to get the book printed in a very timely manner. I didn't have to do anything except supply the text to her. Her eye for design, color and formatting made for a fantastic and unique-looking product. I get compliments from everyone that sees the book. I plan on writing more books now that I know how easily Stephanie can get them ready to print and how great I know they will look. She was a joy to work with, and I now consider her a friend."
