Please Note: You have two choices for completing the offer:

  • The Fall 2013 Offer is an interactive, “working PDF,” meaning you can type directly into the PDF.
  • You still need to print and sign the first page of each worksheet, but hopefully this format will save you from hand writing everything.
  • The totals from each worksheet transfer to the order summary sheet, and fields such as hospital name, contact name and bed count auto populate throughout the document.
  • Please check your numbers on the summary sheet to make sure they transferred properly. You can input correct numbers in those fields if they didn’t transfer properly.
  • Or use a NEW 2nd option:  Online order entry!  Key your orders online to save paper, time and energy.  Upon completion, you’ll be presented with an order summary that must be signed and emailed to Robb Mackes to complete the order to be placed.  Feel free to contact Robb for more details and to activate your account.
