  • 4 out of 5 stars 08/10/2011 I like the attention to detail Linx used when I made minor changes to the proof. We made several of these minor changes and Linx corp responded with a new proof very quickly. Linx offered the best quote out of 5 different companies. Methods used to approve the proof, upload artwork, were very user friendly. Teresa Starnes was very helpful – Woven Labels
