3 stars for ease of use on the website. Subracted 2 stars for the forms being PDFs that you are unable to complete online, they have to be printed. Very inefficient.

Really impressed with the speed and professionalism of the service. I would recommend putting a grey background on the form field inputs as I had trouble seeing them in the user interface, but otherwise I was really impressed and would happily return as a customer.

I ordered the wrong forms because I didn't do enough research to understand what I needed. Their customer service was more understanding than I deserved.

I did this on a desktop using a scanned .pdf file. Simple, straight-forward, excellent instructions, easy, fast, and well documented for each step. From account creation to proof of recording: 4 hours... from the comfort of my home. I would highly recommend this service to anyone, including - and maybe especially - those who are looking for fast recording who aren't well versed in computers and on-line processes. Well done in all ways.
