We believe you are amazing.
But no matter how amazing you are, if you don’t have the right supplies and equipment for the job you’re doing, you’re going to run into snags. So be amazing-er by having everything you need for your auction well in advance of the event. The items we offer here are designed to make your auction easier, precisely better and no-doubt stronger.
Though it’s a material you see less and less of, paper still serves a valuable function at your auction. (And not just as celebratory confetti when you reach your funding goal.) Forms for the silent auction, live auction clerking forms, bid numbers, procurement forms – these are all very important tracking methods for your auction.
Fill out an order form or give us a call and we’ll rush your order to you
Be sure to get plenty of these!

We recommend using a professional company to contract computer equipment and networking services. Our favorite companies to work with are Elite Services & Support http://www.eventsess.com/ and Streamline Support http://www.streamlinesupport.us/. They will provide all of the equipment necessary (with appropriate software installed), printers and necessary connections. Experienced and professional technicians will set everything up and then when the event is over and you’re tired, they will even tear it all down removing the equipment and provide a fresh copy of your auction data to go.
