A Few Kind Words from Our Elated Customers

Tom, Our sign looks great and we get comments about it frequently.  Our property manager in North Carolina asked for your contact info since another homeowner asked for a good signmaker.  Given the backlog (and consequently higher prices) of the well-known local vendor there, you can get a series of orders coming your way.  

Dear Tom,  We just had a meeting where I unveiled the Bluff Heights Historic District sign to all Board Members, including myself, for the first time! There were thumbs- up by all! Nice work!!!

Tom - My father in law loved his fire chief patch sign.  Thank you sooo much!  Unfortunately, we just found out that he has metastatic cancer, and his prognosis is questionable.  But it brought tears to our eyes to see the happiness on his face when he opened the sign!  Thanks again!

Mr. Watson The sign is perfect! Thank you!  Our son will be so surprised as this is a gift he would not expect. Again, thank you for doing such an excellent job. Mary Jane

Hi Tom, The sign arrived and it is magnificent. Yes, magnificent. I do not throw that word around often. It is exactly what I envisioned when I contacted you. Thank you for making this process so easy. I will send you pictures once it is in the ground. I am thinking a sort of dedication to Millie. I will send you pictures. Thanks.

Tom, I just had to email you again and tell you how very impressed I am with your work. You have a very impressive skill there. That piece of wood itself is just gorgeous.

I will shoot you another email in a few days and would love to go through this process again with another project. Thanks again, - Scott

Hey Tom, I just received the sign and it is terrific. Even better than I expected and you did a great, creative adjustment to the whole piece. It was just GREAT. Thank you for your patience and teamwork getting it to be a real Hillbilly special! I'll be back again for more. You do great work.

Dear Tom, You did a beautiful job. Thank you.

Tom, another work of art. Totally approve. Can not wait to get it. Thanks.

Tom, I just wanted to say that we received the sign and it really is awesome.  We will not be able to hang it for another month or so as our new pub room is currently in process, but once we get it up, I will be sure to send you a picture.  It was nice doing business with you and I will be sure to refer others to you as well.  Thanks again. - Ed

Tom, The pictures didn't do it justice. I love it!  Cheers, - Paul 

Tom, my thoughts and opinions on the sign... WOW! I think that about sums it up!!! I have had the sign for a few days, however, we are fostering a VERY active two-year-old and I wanted to wait until i was alone so I could open it and truly appreciate the sign. Initially, I will admit I was concerned about spending that much money on something I wouldn't have the chance of seeing until I have already spent the money. But my fears were put to bed as I opened the box and started unpacking... I am truly blown away by the finished product!!! It looks amazing!! Thanks again, Tom! I will certainly recommend you to anyone who wants to know where I acquired such an awesome sign!!! - Chris

>Hi Tom, Received my sign last night and it looks great! You did a fantastic job. I can't say as I have very many needs for something like this (only once every 47 years on average so far) but if I do you'll be the first person  I contact and if anyone who sees it is interested I'll be sure to send them your way. Thanks, - Wes

Hi Tom, I just wanted for you to know that I gave the 'High Hopes' sign to my friend today for her birthday and she absolutely LOVED it! It was tough hanging onto it as I was dying to give it to her but the day finally arrived!

I found Tom on the Internet and asked him to design a sign for my husband's birthday, complete with a hand-carved T-Bird convertible, painted a specific color -- and have it shipped to me in Tennessee in four days! A tall order, indeed! Tom was so accommodating and cheerful and had the handmade sign in my hands ahead of the deadline. When it arrived and my husband unwrapped his gift, the huge smile on his face said it all! Tom, your work FAR exceeded my expectations and you were a joy to work with! THANK YOU for making me a "hit" on my husband's birthday, and for creating a gift that will be cherished for many years to come! - Melinda Jacobs, Townsend, Tennessee

Hi Tom, Merry Christmas!! The sign arrived a few days ago, and it looks fantastic; better than we could have hoped for! More importantly, we also thought you'd like to know that it was a huge hit with stepdad, who couldn't have been more excited about it.

Here's a picture of him proudly holding it, and he's already picked out a place of honor to display it. Anyway, thanks again for all of your help and your great work on the sign! Take care, - Steve & Anne Ashburn, VA

Hi Tom, Just wanted to let you know we celebrated Father's Day last night upon the arrival of our package and my husband absolutely loved the sign! I can't thank you enough for the beautiful work! I will be leaving positive feedback for you on the link you provided, as well as Facebook. We will definitely keep you in mind if we have future needs for woodworking projects! Thank you!  - Amanda

Hey Tom, I just wanted to send you one last email. I gave the gift to my co-worker Janis, and she absolutely loved it!!! She is a huge Big Bang Theory fan. I don't know if you are familiar with the show, I've only seen it a couple times(not a big fan), but that's where the plaque came in trying to find a great gift. I often work past my hours. I shut the blinds and lock the door to get work accomplished. Janis will knock on the door 3 times (like the show) and say my name three times. She thinks it's hysterical (me?? not so much when I'm working, lol). Anyway, that's the story behind the plaque, which made it a perfect gift.  I just wanted you to know you did an awesome job and she is so happy with it. She has been showing everyone! Keep up the good work, and have a great weekend. - Terri

My daughter just absolutely loves your art!!  She is actually going to hang it inside and is going to rearrange her living where it will look perfect! Thank you so much again.

Tom, the sign is totally awesome! Dave was thrilled. I gave it to him when it arrived on Friday because we were having a water garden society meeting here on Saturday. Now here is the potentially exciting part.... everyone loved the sign and wants to have one for themselves. - Helen

I just wanted to let you know that I received the sign yesterday and it looks great! Thank you so much for your time and your great craftsmanship. It came just in time to give to my husband as a Father's Day gift. I will definitely be keeping your cards for future use or as a referral. Not only were your prices better than others that I found on the internet, but the quality really is fantastic. Thank you so much, - Sarah Wallis

Thank you so much! The sign was perfect and beautiful! :) We will definitely return if we have any other needs! Our Aunt loved it! - Steph 

Thank you again. I honestly believe my Grandson will show it in his dorm with pride. GO, DUCKS - Peggy

The process to order my custom carved double portrait plaque was easy. Communication with the company (Tom) was Outstanding!! I was provided a photo for approval prior to having the product made. Once I approved the portrait the carved product was made quickly and I was again afforded the opportunity to approve the final product prior to having it shipped to the gift recipient. The entire process was easy and the communication made it a pleasure to work with this company. The final product came out fantastic. The gift recipient was extremely surprised and pleased. They had it hanging on their wall immediately after opening it. I could not be happier. I highly recommend if you are having a product carved, this is the company to hire! - Sandy Y.

I wanted to let you know that my mom and her hubby REALLY love their sign. They decided that it is just too pretty to put on the outside of their house (weather is extreme over there, after all) so they hung it inside their beautiful log cabin. - Amy

I emailed Tom about a week before Christmas about a sign I saw on his website that I wanted to my mother. He was able to customize it to my specifications AND get it to me before Christmas!
