Anything else you would like others to know about your experience with this company? Working with Andrea was totally fine, but unlike Holla Knits, she doesn’t send you an advance on royalties. I don’t like that because for all that work, I’ve only been paid $30 for this design. My personal preference is for flat fee-based payments, not royalties, and it took this publication for me to figure that out. But otherwise, the tech editing was phenomenal, photos are beautiful, full creative license, easy to work with.
