Please join me in “Like”ing Marti’s Place on Facebook. Marti’s Place is a Small Business in Marietta, Georgia which is owned by my Friend Marti Richardson. Marti recently expanded her operations by opening a new storefront after working as an independent stylist at Stu’s Barber Shop which closed in November after the owner, Stuart Gowder, passed away.
If you live and/or work in the Marietta, Roswell, or East Cobb area, I highly recommend using Marti’s Place for your Hair Style needs!
Thank you for your support!! (and in helping Marti’s Place go Viral!!!)

Here are some QR Codes that I recently designed for Infusioni Media. One note, you must be careful when using these generation tools. Be sure to test them with different QR Code Scanning Apps prior to publishing.
