Mockup for Special Order

About this design:

I have a simple editing program, so rather than draw (then photograph or scan) a design, I used the computer's sketchbook program. What do you think? Is it professional enough? Should I try and use it for more custom orders?

    I think the designs look very professional. Great work and a great program. Is it an expensive program?

    I think it looks very professional. It never hurts to try something new! In my experience most people are visual and must have it in hand to feel and try on to be able to see your vision. Just my thoughts :)

    It’s free from the Mac App Store, called Sketchbook Express (pretty basic like Paint, but Macs don’t come with anything similar). I drew the individual components, then just copied and pasted to make the pattern (3 different options we’d talked about, so she could visualize them).

    She likes the one on the left! And this is a girl we’ve mentored for 4 years who’s getting married next summer. She was telling me just tonight that we’ve been a huge part in her becoming who she is today *sniff*.
