Microphone Sponsor Tracey Diamond Designs

by deborah on April 27, 2015

We are SO grateful to our next LTYM; NJ Microphone Level Sponsor! Tracey Diamond Designs is providing this year’s LTYM show with all of our printing needs!
Tracey Diamond Designs

Tracey tells us:

I am a fine artists at heart who looks at the world in shapes, colors, and textures. Every sound paints a picture … every picture tells a story … every story connects with image … and each image ignite the mind.

So when working on a project, no matter what the size, I approach
each design with its own uniqueness that, most importantly, draws upon
what inspires the people or the business behind it. Whether asked to
produce a final product in electronic or printed form, the areas of
final design widely vary, including logos, business cards, brochures,
postcards, announcements, banners, stickers/labels, menus, apparel,
promotional items and more.

LTYM; NJ is thrilled to have Tracey Diamond Designs as a sponsor this year!
