    Thanks to Susan, we were able to see our vision for our invites come to life. She helped narrow down paper choices, and gave us good direction for other items to include.

    Unprofessional & Weird
    This person reached out to me on Thumbtack and asked me to leave her a review before I even had a chance to read her messages. We hadn't communicated whatsoever and she marked herself as being hired by me. I questioned that in a polite way and she never responded. It was a very weird experience.
