rants & raves

I LOVE using river & bridge for ALL my stationery needs! Heather is creative, patient, and affordable- all things I love when putting together a dinner party, birthday party, or even personalized packages as gifts. She takes on every project as if it were her own and brings all my ideas to life! I simply send an inspiration email over with a few sentences and pictures of my ideas, and voila... the magic happens! I can't wait to create more memories with her.

Heather does a fantastic job at design and print. But what really is impressive is her ability to listen to your thoughts and ideas on a project and really turn them into something magical on paper. Her turnaround time is very quick, and she's always willing to take the time to discuss any changes or modifications. Her work is amazing and the quality of service is unmatched.

We love river & bridge!

Heather is absolutely ideal to work with. Her price is always fair and she is incredibly easy to work with. Changes are made quickly and easily- the job always a true collaboration.  If you need a graphic designer I highly recommend river & bridge.

River & bridge is one of the best kept secrets in the OC. Heather, or as I call her "Wonder Woman", truly makes your vision come to pass when it comes to all your paper good needs. Whether it's invitations for a wedding or birthday party, or even business cards, she can do it all. Heather is personable, professional, and very easy to work with. I'm honored to say she has helped me create one=of=a=kind Christmas cards, wedding invitations, and even my business logo!

Heather is hands-down one of my favorite vendors to work with when planning my kids' parties. Her designs exude class and sophistication, while still being playful and fun. Her work is creative and fresh- something both you and your child can agree upon. I love working with Heather because she is timely in returning emails and makes the entire process - start to finish - totally seamless. She is knowledgeable and professional, and I recommend her any chance I get!

I absolutely adore everything I've purchased from river & bridge. The designs are modern, fun, and unique! You know you're receiving a beautifully-designed piece of art when ordering, and can feel confident it isn't something that's been done a thousand times before. Thank you, Heather, for sharing your talents with us!

River & bridge is making the world more beautiful, one design at a time. I've had the privilege to work with Heather for the past year, and what a joy it has been. She has done many designs for my children's clothing line and always sees my vision immediately. I always tell my husband, "Heather gets me." I tell her what I want, she runs with it, and nails it every time with her modern and eclectic style. Heather is patient, affordable, and timely. She always delivers immediately and never leaves me hanging- and when you are running a business, this is huge. Thank you river & bridge for making my design dreams come true. Love love love you!

Working with river & bridge over the last 3.5 years has been crucial for growing and developing our business. Heather has consistently worked on short deadlines to get us what we need. She hits the nail on the head every time!

Heather came highly recommended from a few friends when I was inquiring about a new business logo, and I've been using her graphic design & print services for over 4 years now. She's the creative genius behind the Kids Under Construction branding, which began with logo redesign and has included postcards, business stationery custom stickers, gift certificates, window design, and a few projects that began as long-winded emails. Once we established my branding identity, she was quickly able to translate that into any project I sent her way.

More importantly, she's done two birth announcements, a few Christmas cards, and several kids' birthday party packages that unite my midnight ideas and Pinterest finds. Her talent is beyond measure, she has amazing turnaround times, she has impeccable grammar, the quality of her print materials is ridiculously awesome, and she is honest in her opinions and idea feedback. Heather is solution-oriented, and I truly believe she enjoys working on my projects as much as I love delegating them. Once you discover for yourself how your ideas come to fruition, you'll be as obsessed with opening her email attachments as I am.

The first project I hired river & bridge for was creating my new business cards, which we all know are the window into representing our business. She understood my aesthetic and vibe from the very first draft! Creative, unique and fast are just a few words that sum up my experience working with Heather. I have been in business for almost 11 years now, and when you find someone you can rely on and trust in business, there is nothing greater.

River & bridge is the place to go when you want your special celebration to be personal and unique. Heather is easy to work with and has a quick turnaround. She doesn't just create things- she finishes every detail and does things the right way.

Heather at river & bridge is amazing! Her quality, attention to detail and pricing rocks- that's why I go back to her for many of my projects. She knows exactly what I need and gets it done quickly.
