Client Comment 3

“ Mike built Edge's website, and now also looks after all Edge's print design too, for ads, droppers and brochures. He competitively sources print as well. We work well together - I send a brief by SMS and get printready art almost by return email. He's done promo photos for Edge with outstanding results. I think Mike has given Edge excellent value for money, and I'm glad to recommend him. ”
Steve Thomas, Edge Real Estate, Pearce
