I have to say that your customer…is superb

I have to say that your customer service is great and the finished product was loved by all. Our problem was with the FedEx delivery we paid extra to insure the book would arrive in time for my mother’s 100th birthday. You got it shipped as promised and then FedEx took five days to get it delivered they obviously lost it for a while but could never give us details only that it arrived on time to their depot. But you guys were great and I look forward to using you again real soon.

The finished product is beautiful

The finished product is beautiful. We ordered the green, LA Times version. My brother and I gave it to our Dad for his 93rd birthday. He loved it. The book was shipped out within a week from the company, but it took 15 days to arrive in California. So be sure to plan and order according to the recent shopping delays.
