"I don't normally write reviews but this was an exceptional experience.
I needed some brochures/flyers/announcements printed plus a couple of small prospectuses that had a lot of detail. But more importantly I was helping a Washington DC friend finalize some strategic plans and two business plans that were incredibly rushed, last minute, ridiculous deadline based etc. The less important materials could have been delayed if needed but not the strategic plans and business plans which had a great deal of detail, graphs, charts. Those were rush, rush, rush, plus RUSH!!!
I had heard of the Covington group being a top end printing/graphics company along with being a publisher/printer of books and handling a lot of high quality promotional material for the NCAA and well known Authors so I decided to try them. I was blown away with their help, ideas, creativity and their sense of urgency helping me get these projects completed. Their creative guy Randy, was remarkable and helped me avoid several bonehead decisions I was planning to make. John coordinated everything and communicated with me often twice a day over the course of 4 days. The end products were done a day earlier than I expected and were remarkably high quality and impeccably completed. Also, the pricing was more than fair for a last minute pressure cooker deadline project.
I don't impress easily, but this group is remarkable and I STRONGLY recommend the Covington Group for any of your projects/printing/books/creative needs. They are an excellent company as are their employees. They get an A+ or a 10 or 5 stars based on whatever metric you want to use."
