About Us | Contact Us
Every item we sell is the result of a design idea from one of our customers. We talk with them and discuss their needs which results in the final design. New designs are given identities based on a name, location, event, or some special significance often of the customer's choosing. There is never a charge for design work. Since most of our boxes are made to order, changes in box designs or dimentions are never a problem.
