Carol Gallmeyer (Cottonwood Whispers’ owner) is a gifted magician. She can make beauty out of thin air OR out of amateurish photos and text OR out of half-baked notions. I know because she has been raising the bar for me in all of those arenas for years.
My website. The Topeka High Historical Society’s website. My advertising-by-mail campaigns. My family Christmas cards including multi-page stories I shared with friends. I give Carol my rough ideas and she gives them back to me looking professional, glossy and polished, assembled in better ways than I could have ever envisioned. Thrilling.
Carol even helps me with wording and grammar! She knows PUNCH.
My only frustration with Carol is that she is too humble. I think that she doesn’t charge enough for her time. For instance, working with Hall’s Commercial Printing for paper goods like photo cards, advertising fliers, and stationery, under Carol’s sophisticated eye and supervision I get better, more personalized cards and advertising than I could get elsewhere, and I get it all for half the price I would pay elsewhere.
