 'I just wanted to let you know how beautiful our calendars are, and that we cannot believe how quickly they were finished.
As always, thank you and everyone at Gordon Bernard for the wonderful service you have provided us. This is our largest church fundraiser of the year and everyone is always so thrilled to see their names and businesses hanging on the walls all over town!
Thanks again and have a wonderful summer. : )'

'Our calendars arrived yesterday! Naturally, I had to open a box immediately and have a look. They look fabulous and I am so pleased. I can't wait to share them with our other members and begin selling them to the public on Saturday.
We can't thank you enough for all your hard work and attention to detail.  We are especially grateful that you were able to catch and make those last minute corrections. Please convey our thanks to your entire team for a calendar of which we can be proud to display. '

 'Each year, our calendar gets better and better ... and I want to thank you and every member of GBC who made this year's  calendar possible.  I appreciate all of your hard work dedication, and truly enjoy working with you!  You have no idea, the many lives this calendar enriches ... and whose proceeds it helps save!'

'We have been with the GBC for over 30 years and they get better every year. I have worked on this project for many years, but this is the first year I did everything on-line. Our rep, Bruce, explained everything in detail on what to do and I must say it was a blast! This is one of our major fund raisers and we have no trouble selling ad's and we mail a calendar to every home in town.
Thanks for another good year.'

 'Just a note to say how easy your company made this process for me. This is my first year on the project following a man who did this for the Club the previous 22 years. I was pretty unsure of myself but your staff and the online software has made this pretty comprehensive.
Thank you so much.'

' Thank you very much. The members of our Order put so much money into this calendar and they are all in fixed income and supporting the worthwhile cause, which is Diabetes.  I just want to make sure they get what they put in.
I do appreciate all your assistance and your time with me.  You have a tough job in your profession and I commend you for your outstanding customer service.  Please let your boss know about this.
Thank you very much.'

'I just got notification that my calendars will be delivered on November 14!!!  I cannot thank you enough for helping me out with this project.  You were great to work with and I appreciate everything you did to expedite the printing.

Thanks again, I will touch base this spring to get some pre-season ad selling tutoring!'

We appreciate how easy you make the whole process for
us.  We have had several vendors that want to compete for our business.
Even if they undercut your price a little I would still stay with your company because of the wonderful service and price.  You guys do a great job of making the process a breeze.  Great communication, price, and service.  You can't beat that.  I could be a sales person for you guys.  :-)
Take care,

'This has been the easiest calendar ever!! I was dubious about the EZO at first - I'm not really comfortable with the computer and I lost a lot of my data I kept on the calendar because of a hard drive crash earlier,  but,  you were right there willing and ready to help me over the bumps and thumps and humps! Thank you for that immensely! I was so surprised when all of a sudden our calendar was done! It was SO easy! Thank you for all of the help and guidance you have given me during this time. I can see the 2015 calendar being a "walk in the park!" The emails I have received since your receipt of my stuff have been so easy to handle and everyone on your team is such a joy to work with.  I cannot begin to tell you what a terrific fund raiser it is. I have chaired our calendar for over twenty years and sixteen years ago I set it up with the Garden Club in our neighboring town!  (I don't recommend doing two different calendars in the same house at the same time: I had nightmares about the Edwards calendar  arriving with the Raymond picture on it! They both were fine and such a big hit and such a good fund raiser! Both calendars are still going strong!)
Thank you! Everyone has been such a joy to work with and both calendars are still going strong because of all of you!' 
Toot! Toot!

 'We are very pleased with our calendars and found it much easier this year by submitting everything online! It saved so many steps that we had to go through before. I think the one thing we really liked is the way we're able to check on the number of listings and calendars. We have found that if there seems to be an error in anything, that it is usually (always!) something of our own doing, not GBC. It's a great way to double check everything. We should have been filing online much earlier but were a little afraid to tackle it. I think that next year's ordering will be even easier for us since we have learned quite a lot this time. We also appreciate your quick responses to our questions. Absolutely no complaints from us! The calendars are the biggest fund raiser for our church and are very much enjoyed by our community. Thanks for all that you provide to make things easier for us!'

'This is my 21st year of the Elgin Music Boosters Calendar project.  It has been a rewarding fund raiser for our music department and an easy way to raise funds for the students to enjoy new equipment for many years to come.  We also use the profits to reward the students by going on a trip every three years....many fun memories there!  The company has been so easy to work with and answers all of my questions right away.  This is a great opportunity for anyone to make a sizable profit for any group or organization.  Our small community loves to utilize the calendar to see birthdays and school events.  The businesses in the area have always been very supportive of the project.  I highly recommend using Gordon Bernard to anyone and hope Elgin will continue to do so as I am retiring from teaching music after 33 years.  Keep a song in your heart!'

"I was so excited yesterday when our calendars arrived!  I couldn’t believe they were here already: you guys are quick! They look amazing.  Thank you to you and your team for doing this for us.  We really appreciate all your help and patience with us, I know I can be a bit clueless some times
( just ask the nice girl who had to explain some things to me about the extra pages.)  Please pass our thanks along to all those involved.  The calendars are GREAT!

"We received our calendars today – within 3 weeks!  And, once again, we are extremely pleased with the work your company does.  Perhaps we will be with you another 61 years!  Please pass on our thanks to any others who should see this message."

 'We sell these calendars as a fundraiser for the fire dept. and they are very reasonably priced. GBC is a great company to work with; they answer all my emails in a timely manner and have been very easy to work with when I have called also. Everyone in our town loves to get their
calendars every year. I would recommend GBC to anyone doing a fundraiser.

'This is now the 7th year our Volunteer Fire Department has used Gordon Bernard Company' calendar fundraiser.  We continue to be impressed with the great customer service and quality of the finished product.  If there is ever a question regarding our order, one of the wonderful customer service reps contacted us right away to keep the order on schedule.  We distribute the calendars for free to all residents of our Fire District and they are all compliment on how great the calendar is.  This is by far one of the easiest fundraisers we put on each year to raise funds to update our equipment.  Thanks again for the great service!'

 This is our 3rd year doing a pictorial calendar with Gordon Bernard.  Our high school cheerleaders work very hard not only cheering sidelines and pep rallies but they also work through out the year to be a full competition squad. Most of our expenses would come out of parents' pockets without successful fundraisers & these calendars have been one of our major sources.  Area businesses and supporters have been so impressed with our calendar that we've had to add in an additional month and turn away picture sponsors.  Thank you to Gordon Bernard for creating a high-quality product at a reasonable price.

'I wanted to let you know how proud I am of the finished product!  It looks wonderful.  The pictures turned out so professional!  You and your company have done a great job.  I worked in corporate retail for 25 years.  I was beginning to think great customer service was gone.  You have proved me wrong!  Thank you for your willingness and patience to help us every step of the way. It was a great project to work on.  Thank you again!'
