Thanks SO much for your usual superior efforts and support

either of your considerable talents for granted.
Owner/Producer -- ZOOM.7 Inc
wanted to drop a quick note to all those involved in
making the Epsilon meeting a success. We have all talked
about what a great team of professionals came together
in Naples. Thank you for everything you contributed to
the outcome. From all reports the client was happy and
that is really the bottom line. That being said, for
those of us in the trenches the process is as important
as the end result and the talents and attitude of
everyone involved made the process a pleasure. It was a
privilege to work with you on this gig and I look
forward to working with you again soon.
you again. Travel safe and be successful.

Thanks you for your stellar
service. You never miss a beat. I love the confidence I have
knowing that I do not have to worry about graphics. Also

everything else you provide is much appreciated!

Robert - Your work is AMAZING... Your time and
talent are so very appreciated. Everyone "LOVES" the new ad and business cards.
You really understand the essence of what I need so well. It is always scary for
me to try something new. I don't like to take risks. But, with your magic
imagination, you bring ideas to life and I feel very confident. Thank you a
million times over.

just wanted to let
everyone at Act 3 Productions
know that the talented and wonderful designer/owner of Kaplan Graphics, Robert
Kaplan, The Graphics Guy, donated yet more of his time to the efforts of our
dreams! He did not charge us for creating the linkable VIP invitations (which he
turned around in less than a day for us!) As you know, Robert also helped with
the Act 3 website photo video. If you ever have an opportunity to recommend
Robert for a design job – print, e-marketing, website design, you name it – I
hope you will keep him in mind. I use Robert for my materials as well as those
of many of my clients. He’s fast, creative, technically savvy, and a pleasure to
work with. Robert, thank you so much for your continued support of Act 3
Productions and our graphic needs. Warmly, Ginger

I started this
entry off a little differently, but I wanted to introduce
the new masthead logo for this blog and the new Face Down
The Beast website. The artwork and tag line are the creative
concepts of Robert Kaplan of Kaplan Graphics Inc. Robert
came to my attention last week just when I was lamenting
the need for professional graphics help and not having it
He contacted me via LinkedIn, a business/social network, we
traded emails, had a phone conversation and within hours he
had conceptualized what you see above. He was committed,
professional, and perhaps motivated by the knowledge that
his mother has twice survived cancer. Our thanks and
gratitude to Robert for capturing our vision for this
website and blog......

I’m not sure if we thank you enough for
all of the work you do for us! So, please know that we
really truly appreciate your generosity! I realize we
tend to do things last minute around here – which is why
I’m trying to start doing things extra early. I’m sorry
about that and I’m pushing us to do better. Thanks

you made it special. I’m glad we had the

DeNicola -- Senior VP of Sales, Small Bone
Again my compliments to you on the outstanding job you
and your team did at our Worldwide Sales Meeting last weekend. Truly a
professional job. Sorry that we made your job more
difficult by having the “last minute” gang hit you with
the power points so late. I think next time we better
have a much earlier cutoff.

You are so fantastic. You make the whole tech and visual
part of the General Session work and we have total
confidence in you. You do more than just PowerPoint
graphics. I think you need to reflect that in your ads.
I will also connect you with a few advertising agencies
and marketing companies in franchising that might have a
need for your services. You always come through in a
spectacular way. Thank you again...we look forward to
working with you on all of our conferences.

important. We have great content on our web site
