Hi Anne & Laura

I have received a very positive feedback from our hospital ship Transport Manger on the spare wheel covers you produced for Mercy Ships at the end of last year; they look great on our fleet of Toyotas and really stand out well.

Thank you for such a great job

Dear Linda,
I had a phone call from my Aunt in England last night to say that the plaque had just been delivered to her, I couldn’t believe that it was finished already !
She was absolutely delighted with it and I can’t wait to see it myself in a few weeks time.
I just wanted to write and say thank you to yourself and the staff involved in the ordering, design and production of the plaque, it was a pleasure to deal with a company who obviously prides themselves on their efficiency and workmanship .
Thank you once again,
Joy Linton
