    Just received our custom box and we are so very happy with it!! I felt overwhelmed at first with trying to design it but they make it so very easy to do. They are quick to make changes and very pleasant to work with. The box is amazing. Amazing quality and beautiful work. I really couldn’t be happier! So glad we decided to go with this company to make my husbands retirement box. No concerns at all that this will last a lifetime!! If your on the fence about whether or not to do it, don’t be!!! You will not be disappointed!!

    Hi Jonathan,
    Thank you for leaving the review. We do have communication via email since September 3, 2020. Each email was responded to immediately and within a timely manner. I am sorry to see that you did not receive tracking information via email when the box shipped out. Sometimes, when a military email is provided…the government computers can block our generated emails as spam. On the billing and shipping page, we do put a disclaimer in the email section “To insure you will receive our order related emails, no .mil or .gov email addresses.” We are very happy to hear the recipient loved their Custom Military Keepsake Box. We look forward to doing business again with you in the future.

The project manager was so helpful and easy to work with and when I called before I even started the project – to ask for help in finding the correct box and tips in choosing photos- the person o spoke to on the phone was also so courteous and helpful. I have already recommended Relic Wood to a friend 😊
