Response from Webinar on Mobile Apps Shows the Topic is Hotter than Ever

March was a busy month at BGSE. On March 8, 2012, Michelle delivered a Webinar for the folks at Pathable.

But that’s far from the case. In actuality, it means that we serve as the intermediary between a client that needs something printed and the various vendors that will produce the finished product. And the printed product can be anything from business cards and NCR forms to complex booklets and brochures.
