I would like to highly recommend Jim Barry and his team from Barry Design & Print as a key supplier to businesses for all their design and printing needs.

I can’t recommend Jim highly enough as he is quite a gifted designer and provides an unequalled service to his clients. I have referred Jim to clients of mine who have been exceptionally impressed by the creativity, efficiency and overall professionalism of Jim’s proposition and have taken the time to thank me for the introduction. Similarly I have availed of Jim’s design service and his ability to quickly understand and magically convey “that which is in one’s head” renders him a truly valued partner.

We will most definitely be engaging with Barry Design & Print for all our design needs.

Yours sincerely,

Mackin Consultancy

Mackin Consultancy has engaged Barry Design & Print on a number of occasions for all sorts of design and print work used at Mackin and this has proven to be extremely helpful to the business.

Most recently, Jim and the team at Barry Design & Print helped redevelop our company logo and design our website, headed paper, comp slips, etc to take into consideration new services and new locations.  This was a serious undertaking for Mackin, but one that Jim made so easy, and we at Mackin are very thankful for the professionalism that was brought to the project all the way through.
Rebranding can be difficult and it’s important that your message is not lost and with any new logo design it must reflect on the business in a positive way.  We are delighted with the new logo and all aspects of the project, and look forward to working with Jim again.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Jim and his team, who assist us on a regular basis for all our general requirements.  The assistance we get is second to none and we look forward to continuing our relationship with them as Mackin continues to grow.
I have no hesitation in recommending Barry Design & Print to any of my clients or indeed my family or friends for any printing or web design work.

To Jim Barry & all the team at Barry Design & Print.

Having spent some considerable time trying to come up with a logo that best defines our company values, and help build a strong brand, we really thought I cracked it!

That is until we spoke with Jim Barry, he took considerable time to get an understanding of what I was looking to achieve with my branding. With great skill and consideration for my own strong feelings about the logo we created, Jim made some suggestions on where improvements could be made.

Once the task was completed by Jim and the team, The result was over and above my wildest expectations. Jim explained the importance of how the logo would function and how it would be perceived, even providing additional images to help us understand how it would function in the real world.

I would personally wholeheartedly recommend Barry design & print to anyone who values professional design and can appreciate how good design can add value to their business.

Kind regards and continued success,

Mercy Fundraising
The Mercy Hospital Foundation is one of Cork’s busiest charities with a diverse event diary that stretches over the whole year as well as numerous direct mailings to our donors.

We have been working with Barry Design for a number of years and I would highly recommend their service for print and design. They offer an incredibly fast turnaround with absolutely no compromise on the quality of the work. We recently worked with Barry Design to redesign our website www.mercyfundraising.ie and we are delighted with the modern, clean look that ties in with our brand. The whole team at Barry Design are an absolute pleasure to work with, even when the pressure is on!  The patience and attention to detail of all staff members is second to none. They have helped us increase funds raised by The Foundation so we can put them to work at The Mercy Hospital to save lives and improve patient care.

We hope to continue our great working relationship with Barry Design as we believe they are one of the best print and design companies in Cork.

We as a business have dealt with Jim Barry and the rest of the Barry Design & Print team for the last five years and we consistently have had only great things to say about them. We have approached them with lots of varied design and print requests over the years ranging from business cards, letterheads and website design to more recently roller banners. We have recently requested, more personally, memorial cards and acknowledgment cards.

We have had different ideas as to what to include on all of these and in each case we immediately knew we were in safe hands after speaking to Jim. Barry Design & Print quickly came back with a design idea and the proof finalisation was done in a structured and professional manner with the quality of work and attention to detail evident throughout.

We were never rushed into getting any of the jobs done. We were always comfortable with the continuous help of Barry Design & Print as each project developed. When it came to printing this was done quickly and efficiently with any last minute instructions dealt with without drama.

Throughout the last five years we have appreciated all the knowledge, patience and professionalism of the team in developing all requested products to a fantastic standard. All of the finished products have been excellent value for money.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Jim Barry and the rest of the Barry Design and Print team for helping with all their printing needs, graphic design and/or website development to any of our friends, clients and professional colleagues.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Jim,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the superb level of service I received whilst recently dealing with your team at Barry Design Consultants.

Your team recently designed and printed a complete new set of our branded stationery, including business cards, letterheads, comp slips and envelopes. Your team was friendly whilst also being efficient and professional. They provided me with numerous options and were a delight to deal with whilst revising the design to suit my taste.

I was very impressed with the speedy turnaround of work and the level of professionalism throughout, also your pricing was extremely competitive.

It is very important to me that when I take on a company to do any work for me that I feel that they are the experts and are driving the task. Barry Design Consultants exceeded my expectations in this area showing flair and creativity in their design and prompt friendly replies to any queries I may have had.

I would have no issue recommending Barry Design Consultants to any of my Clients, Friends or Relatives for whatever design requirement they may have.
Many thanks again Jim.

Regards,
Richard Curran
Director

 

O'Donnell Breen ~ Walsh O'Donoghue Solicitors
Dear Jim and Team,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for bringing our archaic website up to par. Since the launch of the new site we are receiving triple the amount of requests for quotes. The feedback from clients is that the site is easy on the eye and user friendly, and I could not agree more.

More recently, John has taken over the hosting of our website. I had been dealing with this task in recent years and it was tedious as I would never remember the renewal date, despite multiple reminders. I charged John with the task and the transition was seamless. I know our website is in capable hands with Jim, John and the rest of the team at Barry Design.

Jim and the team also deal with our printing, from business cards to letterheads and matching the paper with the same quality envelope. Orders are always delivered promptly and we are never left without, for which we are very grateful.

Our image has been improved twofold and much of this is thanks to the much needed revamp it received from Jim and the staff at Barry Design and Print.

Thanks for everything!

Aoife Walsh

James Riordan and Partners Solicitors

James Riordan and Partners is a modern and progressive law firm and we needed a website to reflect that. Our existing website required a redesign and upgrade to ensure that existing clients and potential clients could clearly see that we are a corporate law firm specialising in providing a high quality cost effective service in areas of law relevant to our corporate clients.

We contacted Jim Barry in Barry Design as we were very impressed by the Barry Design websites we had viewed. The team at Barry Design were extremely helpful and had a very keen eye for the design element of our website. Jim, John and Cathriona all worked with us at various stages to ensure that our website reflected the ethos and quality of our firm. We are extremely happy with the results-our website is well designed, user friendly and simple to manage from an owner’s perspective-we can upload all our news articles and publications regarding new legal developments with ease.

James Riordan and Partners have no hesitation in recommending Barry Design and we look forward to working with them in the future.

Last year I won a free website in an online competition. This was a great start however, it never really worked properly and the look wasn’t right.

I reached out to Jim of Barry Design. As a relatively new Start Up company, I was on a tight budget and asked for his help. And that he did. Himself and John worked on the existing website, worked within limitations but made it much more appealing to the eye, more functional and a hell of a lot more professional.

A year on and business is growing and over the last few months Barry Design have updated my Home Page. The team are very obliging and as a small business, in relative terms, this means a lot to me. They also look after any printing needs that I have.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Barry Design and Print and I’m looking forward to growing my business over the coming years with their support.

Simply Office
 

Jim, I am writing this testimonial to thank you or your ongoing work that is carried out by your company for Simply Office Solutions in relation to our printing requirements. The quality and service provided by you are excellent and is a credit to your business.

Like ourselves at Simply Office Solutions, you go beyond what we ask for and your prices are extremely competitive. Your turnaround time for jobs is very quick and the print quality is fantastic.

What I like most about Barry Design & Print is no matter how big or small the job is, Jim gives you as much time as he can to understand exactly what you need and comes up with some very creative solutions to get your ideas across.

Sometimes printing companies and their clients overlook the creative design that is needed to make their business stand out, but Jim and his team constantly strive to make their clients aware of how important it is these days to stand out from the crowd – their creative design speaks for itself.

We are currently dealing with Barry Design & Print in relation to our website and i would have no hesitation in recommending them for this kind of work as they have a brilliant team in place to handle it.

I have no hesitation in recommending Jim and his company, Barry Design & Print. We will continue to deal with them for all our design and printing needs not just for ourselves but also for for our own clients.

We were both very impressed with Jim’s attention to detail and knowledge of that sector along with his very creative staff that designed a great brand which will help us compete at a very high level.

I honestly would have no hesitation in recommending Barry Design and Print and we are both looking forward to working with Jim and Co. in the future.
