What Others Say About Marti Barton's Business Communications Writing and Event Planning Skills:


"The electrical winding procedure that you wrote was exactly what we needed. I'm impressed with how quickly you grasped the technical concepts and translated them into such clear and easy-to-follow instructions. Thanks for a great job."

Joseph J. Mahar, Senior Project Engineer, General Electric Company, Nuclear Division


"I was always impressed with the quality of your work when I was at Farley. I remember that we started on a temporary basis, which grew into a permanent thing because of the great value that you provided to us. Your work was of the highest professional quality, it was done promptly, and at very reasonable cost. It filled a need that Farley had...at the time."

John Dobroszi, former Vice President of Quality Control and R & D, Farley Candy Co.


"The Website looks great! I love it!"

Thomas S. Uhlich, President, Industrial Flooring Supply, Inc.


"We were very impressed with the professionalism and quality of our website. Marti Barton of WordCrafters was able to translate our thoughts and ideas into an exceptional marketing tool for our company. And the personal service was outstanding!"

Dr. Nan Cervantes, Consulting Partner, Frank-Cervantes and Associates


"Our band had grown to the point where we needed an updated, more professional image -- business cards, letterhead, flyers. Marti was able to modernize our logo without changing the character of the band, so we were still recognizable to our audience -- just "new and improved".

Ray Frank, Lead Guitar, Kaman Wendt Band


"In today's hectic business environment, the concern for quality and timeliness is of utmost importance. Having a project that required professional quality and a very short delivery schedule suddenly arrive on my desk, with no one in the department qualified to do the job, put me in a real bind. I hired Marti Barton as an independent contractor to supplement my staffing needs. I have never been so impressed with the fact that she was able to do such professional work within such a short timeline! The quality of her end product far exceeded my expectations, and everything was delivered before the due date. Would I use her services again? Absolutely!!"

Pam Alsobrook, Documentation Manager*


"As the owner of a software / publishing company, I was always in need of someone to prepare the documentation for our products. After an initial on-site meeting, Marti Barton, an independent technical writer, was able to take the thoughts, ideas, and extremely rough sketches from the primary programmer and turn the combination into professional user's manuals. And, since programmers tend to take little time off and are always making changes, Marti had to make constant adjustments to the work she was doing for us. She was always very flexible and somehow turned changes around in very short time. She provided finished products that far exceeded our requirements. This is someone that others need to take lessons from!"

Richard Andrew, SoftCraft, Inc. of Illinois


"I was in desperate need of help to compose an essay for a contest "Salon of the Year". You then paid a visit to get a feel for our surroundings. Within days you presented us with a rough draft which was a perfect description of "Just Cut Loose". You are gifted, as your words seem to flow effortlessly. You were a pleasure to work with, and I would highly recommend your services."

Joanne Williams, Owner, Just Cut Loose Salon


"As our publicity coordinator, Marti has consistently kept our club's activities in the public eye with timely and informative press releases. Not once have local media declined to use her copy. She also put our club "on the map", so to speak, with the comprehensive SkyWarn manual she wrote for our participation in the Greater Chicago SkyWarn Association Multi-County Severe Weather Network. She has also made regular contributions to our newsletter, assisted in teaching our radio license classes, and her event planning and coordinating skills have made our annual Hamfest a success for the past 12 years. The "many hats" that Marti has worn over the years have made her a significant contributor to our club. She is one person we can always count on to get the job done and done right."

Jim Jones, President, Bolingbrook Amateur Radio Society


"Our wedding was absolutely perfect. Not a single detail was overlooked, and I didn't have to worry about a thing. Our consultant, Marti Barton, made us feel like our wedding and reception was her most important project. And she was great at hand-holding, too!

Mary Jo Ford


"A trip to Hawaii was the culmination of our 50th anniversary celebration. The excursion was made all the more memorable by the preceding bon voyage party of family and friends organized and managed by Marti Barton of WordCrafters. The entire affair, including invitations through the decorations, was coordinated in Hawaiian design and theme. The professionalism of Marti Barton helped make an already special occasion in our lives most memorable."

Joe and Ellen McMillan


"This is just another "thank you" for all the work you did in planning the memorial service last Sunday. It took me a couple of hours to get there because of traffic on the Chicago expressways, and I almost turned around and went back home when I thought I would be too late. Am I glad that I didn't! It was a very meaningful and heartfelt tribute to the man that we all love so much. I am very glad that I was there to share it with all of you."

Peggy Brendel


"It was a picture perfect tribute tonight to John. I didn't want to retire for the evening without saying thank you. The memorial would not have gotten off the ground without your vision. Thank you for everything."
