Client Testimonial

We’re really delighted with the latest issue of our Chicken & Egg magazine. It’s perfect! We love the new size, and the new paper envelope which reduces our plastic usage as a charity, and the saving on postage as a result has been huge. This wouldn’t have been possible with your knowledge and expertise, so a huge thanks to you and the team at Pepper.
