March 29, 2017

Dear Mr. Erwin:

I am writing to thank you for the wonderful plaque that you produced for my serenity garden here in Tucson, Arizona.

Some potential customers, who require high quality custom work at a fair price, such as what I needed, might be cautious about doing business remotely with a vendor so far away.

I am so glad I am not one of them,because I am proud to count myself as one of your satisfied customers.

When I opened the box that you shipped to me, I was overwhelmed by the quality of your company's work product. The plaque will be perfect when mounted in my serenity garden. Your attention to detail and the various suggestions you made to me all added to make me quite happy.

If you ever need a reference for other potential customers, please feel free to give them a copy of this letter.

Good Morning,
I received my plaque yesterday and it looks great. I can't wait to give it to my father tomorrow. The customer service I received was not only professional but caring. Thank you for fitting my request in on such short notice and producing a high quality piece. I will definitely be a return costumer.

Thank you again,

Yesterday, I received the plaque you created, and I could not be happier. Thank you not only for the very fine production work, but also the time you took to consult with me about the design, costs and options. The layout is excellent. The quality of the end product equally superb.

Cast Aluminum plaque they mounted to a large granite stone
This has been a long time coming, but we just had our Memory Garden plaques installed on granite rocks.
This is the final touch to our five year farm restoration project! We know that our parents and grandparents would be humbled, but without them we would not have this gorgeous farm! Once again, thank you for helping us to make this Memory Garden a reality! It looks beautiful, we know that it will last for many, many years, and we couldn't be happier with the outcome!!!
