    The box is beautiful. I would just recommend for customers pin their own stuff in the box. Love it overall

    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).

    Love my box. The only errors I observed were that the left side of box was not sanded and my name plates were switched.

    Very professional work, skilled design. Expected a plexiglass type cover over the shadow box area like there is on the flag. It’s also a bit smaller than expected. I will treasure this box for many years to come. Thank you.

    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.

    It is a very nice product. The Army olive green felt was a poor choice but it was well made. I wish I’d had a more clear understanding of the felt color options.
