Customer Spotlight Series
Samantha Austin, JBdesignS
I love Claudia and her staff at Tutu.com. They are always there to help with the best advice and there when I have a question or concern. Tutu.com is the only place I can go for help and I do not feel like I am "just another order."
I personally feel that I have grown as a designer with the help of Claudia and her amazing staff at Tutu.com. I can not thank her enough and I am eager to learn much more.
