Working with John R. Webster of Abacus Graphics was a great experience. I had an initial design idea for my site and along with great suggestions from John, he was able to give me exactly what I wanted. The process was smooth, fun, and in the end I received a site that exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend John R. Webster and Abacus Graphics. He did a great job.

John Webster has the professional skills and determination needed to transform your perception of need into a web site that will meet and exceed all expectations. He created for me an interactive web site that allows access to published newspaper columns, the posting of news announcements and multiple resources dealing with the need to reform state and government operations, all at the touch of a keyboard. He aced this requirement and I couldn’t be more pleased with his personal interest and on-going support of what I am trying to accomplish.

John and Francie are more than mere artists. To say they are “creative” is an understatement. Listening skills and sensitivity to our organization’s mission and purpose are two of their greatest assets. Their attention to detail allows projects to be efficiently completed without requiring a lot of time making corrections. Abacus Graphics delivers an exceptional product, time after time, and we rely on them for many of our graphic art needs.

Abacus Graphics did a fantastic job designing the dust jacket and internal layout for my novel, Diamond Deception. John and Francie were very professional and personable and clearly have an enormous amount of experience. The work was completed on time and at very competitive rates. I will use them again and recommend others to do so.

Congratulations! I think the 2006 PMA Publishing University Brochure is perhaps the most attractive and appealing one I have ever seen. I love the faces on the cover!

The National Association of Music Members’ Press Kit is the best graphics and layout to cross my desk in many years. I wish it was ours.

Consider Your Options is a tremendous success, having reached as high as number 163 among all books on Amazon.com. We’re getting ready for our second printing already – only six weeks after the first one! From what I can make out, people think the contents are OK, but the thing they find irresistible is the cover.

I can’t tell you how many complements I have had on the appearance of the book. Thank you, Thank you.

Let me start by saying how completely pleased we all are with what you’ve created for the prostate conference. The brochure truly captures the mood we were going for: professional, clean, cutting-edge. I think it will be the best brochure we will have produced since I’ve been around, thanks for your excellent work.
— Susan Westwood, AMA, Inc.
So many times, John, we call you up to make last minute changes or redesign a concept. But very seldom do we call you to say ‘thanks’ — or to let you know how much we appreciate your help in completing a project or meeting a deadline. Thank you very much for the extra time and energy you and your people put in on our ad. With your help, we were able to stay on schedule. Thank you.
