Client Testimonials

"This is awesome! I just watched Paragraphs and Artistic Text. You guys provide everything but the Coke and the popcorn. DAS is the Best!

Kathy will keep the books and the kids will pull squeegees but I will invest my time in sales/marketing and graphics. DAS is my guiding light!

Eventually our 19 year old daughter will assume the graphics responsibilities because I am not "hip, cool, or down with today’s styles". But my guess is that DAS graphics books can provide a lot of the "hip" that I don't have. Or maybe you can give me a "hip replacement" at a much lower cost than a surgeon!"

Darrell

"Thank you for another great webcast. You give so much good info. I really like having to view again. I started my business later in life and was now born with a computer at my finger tips. So this is like teaching old dog new tricks. So keep the webcast coming I am really learning lots. I appreciate this so much. I have the smart vector pro so its nice to see this in action since I am moving slow... Thank you so much.

I buy all my software from Digital Arts and the webcast is just a big bonus.Have a great day."

"Thanks so much for sending me this link to the webcast. I started it last night but finished it this morning when I could not get back to sleep. It was great and very informative. I am an embroiderer and not a printer but I want to learn all that I can about creating the art work so that I can talk intelligently with my customers. Plus, I need to know how to send acceptable art work to my printers. I really appreciate having these training sessions available to go over again and again. I've just gotten the Corel DRAW upgrade from you and with so much there to learn, these sessions are very informative and inspirational."
