I’ve put together this list of some of the people I’ve worked with directly, heard about, or discovered online. I believe I’ve vetted this list to make sure the quality of samples was up to par, but make sure to do some research and ask for samples. Prices vary.

Also, if you know someone else who provides excellent service and quality, please recommend them so they can be added to this list.
