‘Why, this news seems soooooo familiar. There must be a six-month auto resend program at work. But the truth be said (typed), I may well end up using it again-again anyway because the photo is good, the copy is easy to work with and (oddly enough) I don’t get enough new product entries. You should get more clients in our field!”
– Mark Marselli, Editor
Wire Journal

“I appreciate the format in which Venmark submits news releases to Chemical Equipment Magazine. I’ve been receiving new product information from your agency for over 20 years. The releases are always well written, concise, a good length, and accompanied by excellent photography. I wish everyone submitted their information in the “Venmark” format! I was talking to another editor here at Reed Business Information earlier this week and he, too, agreed you’re one of, if not the best PR firm around these days. Keep up the good work! It’s a pleasure working with you and the material you submit to our magazines.”
– Geoff Bridgman, Editor-in-Chief
Chemical Equipment Magazine

“I’d be happy to run the release. The photo was excellent. I’d like to figure out a way to give it more play than just a regular product release, but can’t promise that. I’ve enjoyed your submissions for years. They’re always the best. It just occured to me that I can run Norcross’s item in my Editor’s Picks page for November. That will give them a larger photo.”
– Geoff Bridgman, Editor-in-Chief

“In short, when I see the characteristic “editor-friendly” Venmark press release, I know it is worthwhile for me to read it because I know it contains information that I cannot afford to ignore.

– Ronald Hill, Editorial Director
Gordon Publications, Inc.

– D. Keith Patrick, Editor
Industrial Heating Magazine

If a photograph is used a credit to the company will be included. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to hearing from you.”
