Queue, Inc. Steve Perrett
I am writing to give my most wholehearted recommendation to John and Bob Audley and all the good people at Covington Group.
Queue, Inc. has been a publisher of educational materials since 1980. Covington Group has been our go-to printer since 2001, when we began publishing test preparation workbooks.
Not only have they produced soft-cover workbooks and full-color catalogues of the highest quality, they have consistently delivered on time, and accommodated our rush requests, which have been more numerous than I care to admit.
Cost has always been an issue for us, and Covington Group has been as economical a vendor to work with as any I've found.
Covington has provided several collateral services for us over the years as well. We have warehoused inventory with them when we were unable to store books ourselves. The fulfillment service has been most prompt and efficient.
I can't say enough about the helpfulness of their prepress department as we've encountered technical problems in the process of putting books and catalogues together.
And a service that's not advertised, but has come into play many times over the years: between John and others who check our projects before sending them to press, plenty of our errors have been caught and eliminated before being committed to the page.
I recommend Covington Group without reservation.
