We strive to inspire
RissSantoro Advertising Design specializes in non-profit direct mail and fund raising campaigns. Partnering with JCR Direct, our packages have mailed by the millions, and have raised millions for children’s charities, schools, and religious communities. That may sound like a big claim, but our results back that up.
Striking visuals can make emotional ties, so we design every piece to visually connect the audience with our client's story. And we've won a few awards along the way.
