Chances are, it has been awhile since you last adjusted your e-mail signature. I got the idea to do an article on this while cleaning my inbox from a vacation (for those of you who don’t know what my inbox is like, let me tell you… it wasn’t easy!)

Another year, another award. For the fifth year in a row, InBusiness Magazine has named EZ Office Products the best office supply company in Madison. When Gary and I set up shop in 2006 (small warehouse and all), we only dreamed of being recognized as the cream of the crop.

To celebrate this favorite day, I’ve compiled a few interesting facts found from studies about left handed people.
Spring is finally here. Even though this year’s winter wasn’t so harsh, it’s nice to see the sun stay out a little longer each day. You know it’s spring when there’s talk about Badgers Basketball and the Big 12 Conference Championship (or potentially a March Madness run. One can only hope.)
