I’ve worked with many types of ad agencies and I would rate Cottage24 in the top 1% of all of them. Sam Ezzo takes great care in offering his clients every available smart option for their campaigns. He looks at the program from 360 degrees by looking at the client’s best options for their creative, the ad dollars available and getting the best comprehensive program in place from Print, Digital and On-Line Programs. Sam is extremely consultative. He listens to his client’s needs and offers then several options to reach and surpass their expectations. I feel confident that any company that is looking for special attention from a seasoned advertising professional can rely on Cottage24 for their marketing needs.

I had the pleasure of working with Sam for at least 15 years when he was a client of mine at Autoweek & Automotive News. He is the nicest person to work with & I have always considered him a friend. Sam handled all the marketing, media planning & design for print, online, video, events, social media, etc. He is VERY knowledgeable & creative. Let's just say, this guy knows his stuff & he made my job very easy. :) I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to grow their business.

Sam and C24 designed not only the graphics, but they worked together with Team Concepts to design print production that has never been done before.  C24 can support your company with Graphic Design and Marketing, but they also have the expertise to build unique and creative printed pieces.

I was amazed with the creativity Sam at Cottage 24 showed in designing a very extravagant Halloween card I needed for a huge party I was hosting! The cards turned out spectacular and I had a great turnout! (Everyone who attended said my cards were the most incredible they had ever seen!) I wanted to take the credit, but when asked who designed them I was honest and said Cottage 24 . Keep up the great work and the creativity flowing!
Awesome marketing and design experience! The staff is very friendly and sees the project through to the end! Highly recommend!
