various sport score collecting and computations (tournaments, averages, handicaps, etc.); Trucking
industry (Driver log books, scannable inspection sheets); Education (standardized testing and scoring);
Government (ballots, voting sheets, and cards); and in industries where the ability to quickly gather

integrity of not only the forms we produce, but in the relationships that we build with our clients. Many
of which have started with the owner sharing a vision with us and through a few years working together,
sharing in the excitement of their success as they grow into multi-million dollar operations.
