    The box turned out even better than expected. Seriously great quality. The graphics team was easy to work with and took our vision and made it even better. The box smells so good. The recipient cried when seeing it and he never does that. Thank you for helping make my brothers retirement gift a massive success!

    The end product was amazing. The customer service was amazing. They were so nice and I screwed up twice in sending information twice to them. They were so patient and so calm. They were helpful I can’t speak enough about how beautiful the end product is. My husband was so happy with it. They captured the moments so beautifully. I will definitely be recommending you guys to more people.

    Overall the box is great! I did rate a 4 vs 5 due to one issues. The issue was pinning of ribbons/medals. I paid the extra $50 for that service. I assumed it would be a very professional look, but when the box arrived, several of the items had fallen out. With other items, the spacing/placement was basically eyeballed for positioning. This service was not worth the $50.

    Thank you so much! My shadowbox is beautiful! I waited until the day of my retirement ceremony to see it for the first time – It truly is a work of art and a story of my career and what it means to me. My family & friends loved it too! RelicWood will be my “go to” for all things patriotic! God bless you all. SDJ

    The box is beautiful and the graphics came out perfectly. The only issue was the box lid was not perfectly centered when the hinges were applied and there is a 1/8” offset to the left. When the lid is closed the lid and body of the box are not flush (see photo).

The staff and project manager were great to work with. Special shout out to Tammy. I will cherish this forever. Cant want to reveal it at my retirement ceremony in a few days.

    Could not have produced a more perfect piece of personalized artwork that will be an heirloom for generations to come. Even more important as the Covid-19 pandemic cancelled his 33-year retirement ceremony.
    I was a particularly ornery (difficult) customer -but you can assuredly reference me for a recommendation any time.

    I purchased the Military Keepsake Box for my brother who retired from the US Army after 32 years of service. The product that Relic Wood produced was better than expected and it was delivered on time. I worked with your designer Rosie who was just extraordinary. My sister-in-law described it best saying it was a “phenomenal gift”. Thank you so very much.

    Beautiful hand-crafted work of art. I ordered a retirement box in late June. I received contact immediately upon ordering (I was still getting things together!). There was clear advertising that the organization would be closed for a week over the 4th of July. I approved my proofs and production began after the holiday.

    Unfortunately, I had significant problems with shipping. The shipper returned the box to relic wood without making an attempt at my door. I immediately informed customer service, and they had the box redelivered to me immediately once they received the box back.

    However, I continued to have problems with the shipper. The shipper mis-routed by box the second time around. Tracking allowed continued following. Our farewell presentation was delayed – which did buy more time. …and then I received the worst tracking update imaginable. “product damaged and returned to sender”

    I notified customer service of the update and they immediately put in production a new box. It was completed and shipped to me (different shipper) before the damaged product even made it back to the factory. I received the box just in time for the farewell presentation.

    Drumroll please…

    The recipient was completely floored. “Best military gift I have ever received” Everything was beautifully personalized. The fresh-wood aroma – fabulous!

    I am unable to upload photos at the moment because of formatting – but in general, pictures do not do justice for the actual product.

    I am truly blessed by the outstanding customer service that stood by during some stressful shipping situations. I strongly recommend!

    This Keepsake box for my son’s Coast Guard retirement was beautifully made, the ship on top was bigger and better than I expected. I was very pleased with the photo display, challenge coin set up and flag holder. Just wonderful the brass plate with his duty stations and the front nameplate was perfect. ” Go Ask the Chief” was the polish on the shine.
    Thanks again and Bravo Zulu to a job well done, Thank you.

    The box came out great, was surprised at how well the images came out. The process was easy and they were helpful with my questions and concerns. In the end I would recommend this to any of my brothers or sisters as a retirement gift!

    Just had to share my excitement! I had sold my house and downsized into a RV/5th wheel in 2015. When I did that, I had to get rid of a lot of my military memorabilia in order for my basic living household goods could fit into my new home; so, I ordered this custom made box to keep what few items I had left in…my retirement flag fit perfect in the bottom triangle space too! I love that I was able to capture every single unit I was assigned to on the tray. 🙂

    Thank you so much Relic Wood!

    Great product! Caveat: I may have missed the layout design if one was available. The only constructive feedback I have is placement of the flag. I didn’t know where it would be before I got the box. I assumed it would be in the same place I saw on another box, but it wasn’t. I don’t mind where it is, but I would have liked it somewhere else. More importantly, a box layout in addition to the art would have helped communicate the design, thus showing the placement of the flag.

    I was in tears, literally, when I first saw the box I ordered. It is amazing. The workmanship is better than I expected. It is for my fiancé who retired a couple of years ago and had just recently been relocated back to Ohio and was only there a few weeks when he retired so he didn’t know anyone very well and therefore nobody made him a retirement box. So I am beyond excited to give it to him for Christmas. Thank you for doing such a good job. I love it and will send a video of his response as soon as I give it to him.

I was immediately put at ease when contacted by your staff regarding design and editing approvals. BUT the real moment of pure happiness was opening the shipment and seeing the final product. It was beyond my expectations beautiful, and everyone that has seen the shadowbox is blown away by its beauty. Thank you for making such a special retirement gift for Chief, I can’t wait to present it to him at his retirement ceremony. I will make sure to send you pictures of the big reveal!

    Relic Wood’s keepsake box is the perfect military retirement, or end of tour, gift especially since it can be personalized.  Instead of putting military memorabilia in an old shoe box, it is ideal for storing items such as rank insignia, unit patches, shoulder boards, medal boxes, specialty or organization badges, uniform
