    The customized military keepsake box I ordered was beautiful. Great craftsmanship with quality materials. Looks exactly like the proof but better. It was a short notice order for a retirement ceremony in honor of an Army Soldier who served our Nation for over 30 years. I had to expedite the order and shipping, but working with the team at Relic Wood, they put the proof together in less than 24 hrs and it arrived a day early. I can’t say enough about the ease of this process and the professionalism of the Relic Wood team and product.

    I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the Relic Wood box. Not cheap (glued together) as so many products are today.  I purchased the product as a retirement gift for a senior Army Officer from our office staff. I will be proud to present this product during his retirement ceremony.

     I ordered a US Air Force Keepsake Footlocker for my niece who has just joined. I gave her a preview of the item after purchasing it and she was already in love with it. When she actually received the box she had a smile from ear to ear. Definitely a happy moment

     I placed an order for a customized box – seriously! The process of ordering could not have been any easier! I wanted to make one change after the graphic designer completed my mock-up, and that was no problem. The product was completed and shipped out TWO WEEKS earlier than I had anticipated

     First and foremost, it was beautiful. It was definitely not what I expected in a most amazing way. The wood, the print, the colors it was all so detailed and I will most definitely be ordering again. Initially, I thought it was pricey and was reluctant but I can honestly say this is money well spent. Thank You!

     Loved this for many reasons! My husband is Greek, so he loved the Molon Labe Spartan box, we have a sailor who will be getting his for Christmas (already ordered) and will be ordering two more for other sons! Also love that it’s made in the USA by Americans!

    I had one made for my husbands retirement. I uploaded all the images I wanted and the designer was amazing at placing them exactly where I wanted. She emailed me several times with options and suggestions. I had five photos and a plaque of the bases we had lives on the inside tray. The air force seal on the top, some of his patches along with his name plate and US AIR FORCE on the front. I requested a quote on the inside bottom as well. It far exceeded my expectations! Amazing and beautiful! It also arrived much sooner than expected. I am very satisfied with this product!!!

    It was shipped to my son out of state however the company went out of their way to take photographs of the finished product before shipping it out to him so I could see it first. I had my son skype me when he received it so I could watch him open it.
    Rosie, their graphic artists was amazing; I took forever since I couldn’t make up my mind on which photos to use and she was very patient and helpful with ideas & feedback.
    I wish I would have known about this company when my father in law was alive, he served in WWII so this would have been a wonderful gift for him.
    The one thing my son said is that he wished the flag holder was removable so if he wanted to he could take it out and hang it on the wall because no one can see the flag when it is another layer down under the tray – please take this into consideration; thank you!!!

    What a wonderful experience and product. I wanted a way for my husband to celebrate and remember his years of service, but a cookie cutter shadow box was just not him. After some searching, I found Relic Wood. The designer helped me create a gift that included personal photos

    Thank you so much for this AMAZING piece! This is by far the finest retirement “shadow box” idea I’ve ever seen. The trunk will allow me to display other memorabilia other than just a few ranks and ribbons. I LOVE all the personalization that went into every aspect of this.

     Ordered this as a retirement gift for a Army National Guard Command Sergeant Major.  I got one that had the shadowbox ready lid and a place to hold the Colors that the State TAG will give him.  It came out perfect.  I will be ordering more of these in the future.
