I ordered a memory box for my graduate and it looks amazing! This was my third order and they have all turned out better than I could have imagined. Their customer service was great. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience!

Amazing customer service and product quality! I received a proof within two hours of my initial artwork submission, made some slight changes and had the final proof the same day. The product showed up at the house 3 weeks later and was exactly what I ordered. This is the second retirement box I have ordered and was extremely pleased both times.

To be honest, I was worried how the colors would turn out on the wood, and was taking a shot at what I though COULD be a beautiful piece. Coloring wood pieces could end up making the piece look, at best, not what I was hoping, and at worst, cheap. The website sold me, because the photos there look great, and when the box showed up, it did not disappoint. The images look like highly detailed, deep stains, or tattoos. They look absolutly authentic and exactly what I was hoping for. The wood is high quality and sturdy, not any kind of thin basswood or balsa. Very sturdy, and well-crafted box. It was manufactured very quickly and arrived at my door sooner than expected. The customer service is top-notch, verifying everything you input to them to ensure you are getting what you want. For anything you are spelling on a plaque, verify the spelling. They will print everything you are putting down, so ensure your spelling and grammar is correct. I didn't have an issue with this, but I imagine this happening. All-in-all, I highly reccommend this company. Very satisfied with my product.

Veteran Owned & Operated

We take great pride that we are a Veteran owned & operated small family business and not some big corporation. Our priorities are simple.

#1 – We will always be handmade in America . . . by American craftsmen.

#2 – Taking excellent care of our customers, our employees, and building quality products will always come before profit. We may never get rich, but we will sleep well at night.

#3 – During our business hours you can always get a real person on the phone to answer your questions (hope you don’t mind our friendly Southern Draw).

Behind the Scenes Tour

We welcome you to watch this video to get a behind the scenes look at the tremendous amount of detail that goes into our craft.


Vintage Woodworking

Hands on is how we approach crafting our wooden boxes. Every item we make, from assembly all the way to packaging and shipping, is meticulously done by hand. Our people know that each gift we build is meant to be a conversation piece, and will have great sentimental value to it’s recipient. Meaningful employment is important to us.

Real Graphic Artists on Staff!

Each custom order is assigned to one of our talented graphic designers who will assist our customers until the artwork proofs are approved and the custom order is sent to production. We build nothing without your approval, so you know you are going to love it when it arrives.

The result is something completely unique . . . a gift you will never find in any box store!
