the designShed

thank you again for your swift & brilliant service, we can't afford an ad agency, but the designShed have really made a difference & helped our business to develop in terms of professional looking printed items & our online presence

designShed customer feedback ...

we used the designShed to help us improve our trade show stand, we didn't really know what was available for our budget, the designShed were totally honest and offered us a few options that were affordable... we will definitely be using them again !

designShed customer feedback ...

we're a start up business and needed a professional looking website but couldn't really afford the prices we were being quoted initially - the designShed ran through their services and even helped us with keywords, copywriting & image sourcing - the costs are affordable and so we'll be returning to them when we need our business cards, sales leaflets & brochure producing !
