From my roots in Jamaica to the bustling streets of the USA, my journey into design and printing has been fueled by a passion for creativity and business. I founded Small Business Promotions, Inc. back in 2003, bringing DesignsnPring.com to life. The foundation of my work comes from not only my degree in accounting and economics from the University of the West Indies but also my hands-on-experience that started at Georgia Perimeter College.
