Key Graphic Design Features of OneForm Designer Plus

Amgraf, Inc. is a world leader in pre-press software technology for manufactured paper business forms. We understand paper forms and believe they will be needed for a long time to come. The advantages of paper forms are obvious. They can be filled-in by anyone at any time, with a simple writing pen or pencil. Paper forms are highly portable, and they act as a permanent record for legal transactions. Despite the explosion of computer technology, many business processes still involve a substantial use of paper forms.
