Customer service has been great! I have been using Form Publisher for years now and we use it to generate many certificates, slides, sheets and forms. It is running on many forms that we use daily.

The templates and the option to autogenerate are useful, if besides that we can still fiddle around with our own layouts. Take your sheet and swallow the management otherwise.
