What Others Are Saying


Direct Competitors Were Jealous
“The convention couldn’t have gone better and we had tons of wonderful comments about the TaxiRide business cards and brochures.  Even one of our direct competitors commented on how all of our materials were really high end and gave a great impression.  We can’t thank you enough for all of your help!” Katharine Schultz, TaxiRide


You Practice What You Preach
“As usual, you nailed it with your ‘Top Ten Mistakes Business Owners Make in Their Marketing.’ book.  As the owner of a small, specialized law firm representing patients in medical malpractice cases (that does not advertise) I can tell you I’ve made many of these same mistakes over the years. Your business is unique because it allows businesses like mine to compete with mega-firms running TV commercials, Yellow Page ads and Pay-Per-Click internet advertising campaigns by helping us take action to provide information to our potential clients. We have received many compliments on ‘Getting Everything Your Special Needs Child Deserves: A Parent’s Guide to Resources‘ that you and your team designed and printed for us. Working with you was easy and efficient–you practice what you preach.” Frank Kearney, Donahoe Kearney Attorneys at Law


I Admire Your Creativity
“I’m Mike Saile’s assistant (Mary Jo) and am getting back to you with some revisions to the letter you designed for us.  I cannot go any further without telling you how terrific the letter looks – the color(s), the easy-to-follow lay out, and the little notes in the “cursive” font!  I so admire your creativity!” Mary Jo, Saile & Saile, Attorneys At Law


She Knows What Attracts Customers
“I’m impressed with Kia’s ability to help beyond just printing and graphic design, which she does extremely well. She knows what attracts customers so she can incorporate proven response-boosters into direct mail pieces and other materials. She also provides top-notch service.” 
Brian Brandenburg, Cartridge World


Communicating With Kia Was So Easy
“I love working with Kia!  Not only did she get my project done on time and on budget, but she brought a tremendous amount of creativity to the table.  We’ve never met in person and I’m pretty particular about the way things look so I was surprised that communicating with her was so easy.  She totally “got” me.  I’ve worked with a lot of artists and I know that that kind of talent and intuition is not easy to find. “ Julie Boswell, Marketing Strategist & Direct Response Copywriter


I Expected Great Things
“I had heard about Kia’s business from Ben Glass. He had great things to say about her, which influenced me in two ways:  (1) I was already predisposed to expect great things from her and (2) I expected great things from her.  That is, she had to meet very high expectations from the very beginning.  And she did. I told her my ideas and goals; she sent me a design idea; I responded; she put it all together – and I had my stupendous bookmarks sooner than I expected. They fit my needs perfectly, and my clients have given me very positive remarks about them.  I’ve even had clients ask for extras! Although this was a small job, there’s no doubt where I’ll go when I need my next marketing project done:  straight to Kia and Brahm!”  Sandra Rohrstaff, Rohrstaff Law Firm


Very Pleased
“The staff at Speedy Printing has worked with us on catalog designs, brochures, business cards, and literary booklets, and we’ve been very pleased with the results. We especially enjoy the ability to trade questions and ideas back and forth until we’re pleased with the result. We have also been pleased with the very competitive pricing for our design and printing needs. Our overall experience has been very positive. We have received great reviews from our 850 members regarding the catalogs, brochures, business cards, and literary publications.”  Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at GMU


They Listen To Your Vision and Help You Create It
“I have been a client of Kia Arian and Zine Graphics for some time now. My experience has always been a wonderful one. Kia and her team are very talented in designing the perfect look for whatever it is that you need. They listen to your vision and help you create it, stating within your budget. The finished product looks great and represents you and your company in a very professional way. It is always delivered in a timely manner as well. I would recommend Kia’s services without any reservation!” Myrna Grossman, For All Occasions, Fairfax, VA


I Enjoy The Enthusiasm
“After creating a number of Postcards regarding art receptions, general info cards , you suggested this year that we all should try 2010 calendars for our clients and colleagues may readily wish to keep in their wallets, purses or desks. This seems to be a success since they readily are picked up, more than the post cards. What I enjoyed the most is the casual conversations in which we learn more about each others lives and goals. I enjoy the enthusiasm with which you and your staff undertake your efforts for us.”  Mark Isaacs, Fairfax Art League


Extremely Pleased
“We needed a new logo design for our firm.  Kia and her team did a great job.  They listened carefully to our requirements, were patient as the logo design developed and provided several alternative designs to choose from. We are extremely pleased with our new logo and feedback from our clients has been very positive. Business cards, letterhead and envelopes all look great. We enjoyed our entire experience working with Zine Graphics & Print.  Their professional and friendly approach to our business needs was excellent. We look forward to doing more business in the future.”  Thomas Dunleavy, Capital CFO Solutions, Fairfax, VA


Personable and Helpful
“We were late getting our Christmas newsletter out one year, and Kia did a fantastic job with the printing, suggestions, and timeliness. Our patients always look forward to our annual Christmas letter, and she helped us tremendously! Kia is very personable and helpful, and has helpful suggestions for each project.” Ellen Schack,  Gentle Dental Care, Fairfax, Virginia


You’re The Best
“For the second time in two years I was starting up a new company and needed business cards and letterhead. I am not an artsy person and I needed help with the design and logo. Kia and Kim came up with several choices for me to choose from. I loved them all and am so pleased with the design I chose. I appreciated that several choices were presented to me. While my final choice was a traditional design for a business card, I liked seeing how they could design very contemporary cards and letterhead and maybe when it is time to reorder will go with something else. I liked how they listened to us about what we thought we wanted and then put it into the design. You are the best :)  Virginia Marksteiner, AP Tax Service, Fairfax, Virginia


We Love the New Business Cards!
“We were starting a new business and needed new business cards and letterhead. Kim gave us several beautiful designs to choose from. I liked both the professionalism and the promptness of your work. My general impression is that you do excellent work for a reasonable price. We love the new business cards!” Jeanne O’Mara, AP Tax Service, Fairfax, Virginia


Quality and Attention To Your Project
“Even though I have a corporate home office that assists with marketing materials, I needed a banner for a trade show customized for me at that show. Kia and Brahms were able to produce it for me quicker and for a better price than my own home office and in time. They are always so pleasant to work with. You can count on the quality and attention on your project.” Peter Himmelberger, Travel Cruise and Tour, Burke, Virginia


Extensive Knowledge and Attention To Detail
When I transitioned from a big law firm to my own solo practice, Zine Graphics was critical to getting my business started. Kia developed my logo, and quickly put together an integrated package of letterhead, business cards, and other business stationery that was both creative and professional. The result for my firm was a fresh business presentation that I could send to clients on day one.
In addition to providing terrific service and creative flair, the owners of Speedy Printing and Zine Graphics took a personal interest in my printing and design needs. Their extensive knowledge and attention to detail meant that I could focus my energy on building my law practice and serving my clients. When you hire Speedy Printing and Zine Graphics you have made an alliance with people who you can trust to give you the very best product and service available. Kia and her team started out as my printer and my graphics designer; they ended up becoming trusted friends.”  Tom Wilson, The Law Offices of Thomas A. Wilson

They Stand Behind Their Work
“My experience with Speedy has been just wonderful.  Not only are the owners Christians and very personable, but they do an outstanding job at a very reasonable cost, and they stand behind their work.  We have used them as our printer almost since they opened for business, and don’t even consider going elsewhere for work within their niche.” Ken Smith, President, Christian Stewardship Ministries, Fairfax, VA

A Terrific Asset
“I worked with Kia on developing an ad with a very short deadline. Kia was a terrific asset in brainstorming ideas and providing the kind of input necessary to create an ad that was different from our competitors. Kia took what was a vague idea and turned in into a stunning ad that far exceeded my expectations. Thank you so much for your great work and I look forward to working with you again in the future.” Greg Jimeno, Jimeno & Gray, P.A., Glen Burnie, MD

I highly recommend Zine Graphic’s services!” Aaron Carlson, Agent, State Farm Insurance
