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.

There are many things big and small during spring that reminds me why I’m in love with Madison.
