The single biggest reason we like making signs is because people like our work! There's usually a big smile on their face when they see what we've done for them.

Consequently, we do get a fair number of letters and e-mails telling us how much they like their sign. So, how many letters should we post? We decided on a few of our favorites to avoid repetition and swelled ego. If you are already a customer and don't see your letter here, please don't be offended and don't ever think your comments weren't appreciated. They were!

"Just a quick note to let you know we just received our sign and it looks amazing!" S. Anderson Victoria, B.C.
"Sorry this note is so late in coming, but we just wanted to say that we got our sign, put it up, and it looks stunning. My wife is actually getting quite annoyed at the number of people that knock on our door and ask us where we got it. Cheers." C. Allen Edmonton, Alberta  
"Your literature says allow 4 weeks for delivery. We got our sign in less than two weeks! Whatever happened to the phrase "anything good is worth waiting for"? This is NOT good, it's great! You people do remarkable work!" E. Szuhai Sussex, N.B.  
"A year ago your company made a slate address sign for me. The quality and excellence of the craft was spectacular. Due to 911 renumbering, my address has changed. I would appreciate receiving another brochure and order form so that I can order for my new address." C. Wolf Garth Belleville, Ontario  
Much to our surprise, the Kinsman Club of Canada commissioned us to do a custom Slate Garden Sign in gold for a special project. We later found out it was submitted to the Queen as a gift together with an invitation. They were hopeful she might be enticed to come to Canada as part of their 100th anniversary celebrations. Unfortunately, her busy schedule prevented her acceptance, but she kept our sign! Here is an excerpt from the letter:  

"The Queen has also asked me to send her warm thanks for the delightful garden plaque which accompanied your letter. Although Her Majesty does not normally accept unsolicited gifts, she has made an exception in this case, and I should be glad if you would pass her thanks to all those who contributed to the present." Mrs. Deborah Bean Chief Correspondence Officer, Buckingham Palace

Note: we have since been asked to reproduce this sign dozens of times for memorial gardens and private homes. It is known as "The Queens Plaque".  [BACK]

While the plaque and the letter are real, we can't vouch for this photo. Now you know Mike dreams in black & white.
"I received my sign the other day. I was very pleased to have received the order so quickly. The sign went up today and looks wonderful. Thanks for your quick service!" D. Aube Ajax, Ontario  
"I am writing to express my appreciation at the professional and timely way in which you dealt with the difficulties with our slate sign. It is a pleasure to deal with someone who takes such pride in his work and strives to produce the best possible product; this level of commitment and service is all too rare these days. If I were ever in a position to use your services again, I would not hesitate to do so but given the expected lifetime of the sign that seems unlikely! However, I would not hesitate to recommend your work to others given the opportunity." S. Rigden, Ph.D. Manager, Operations & Resources,

"When we ordered one of your signs at the Home Show we liked that they were so much different than anything else we see around our neighborhood. Today we received our sign and it looks even better than we imagined. My husband is putting it up today. Don't be surprised if you start getting orders from our jealous neighbors!" B. Charlton, Boston, Ma
"Hi, there, I just wanted to let you know I was really impressed with your display booth at the Home Show. I ordered a sign and cannot tell you how pleased I am with it. I never expected to find such a nice number sign for my house. I am from Wales and I love slate and am delighted to have come across your product. Thank you so much for your attention to detail." G. Lewis, Wales
I can't tell you how excited and surprised I was to find the mailman at my door with your package in hand after only a short wait! It's BEAUTIFUL and will look awesome once glued onto my landscaping rock. Many, many thanks for the superb service. You can bet that I'll give you a glowing referral each time I'm asked about it and I'm certain that will be often! It's a pleasure to do business with a company like yours. With many thanks and much appreciation, S.Hummel, Bismark, North Dakota
