wood finish February 17, 2015
Reviewer: Mary Anderson from Batavia, IL United States  
The things I liked about my order were the lettering & colors.  Unfortunately the wood was so much less than what I had expected to the point that I will I had not ordered the item.  The saw cuts were not finished AT ALL and there was even places where the base paint did the cover the wood completely. I just expected a much highly quality and a satin finish over the work would have been nice.  What is your return policy?

Wish there was a "preview button" December 23, 2014
Reviewer: Gary from Everett, WA United States  
I was very happy with my purchase but if there was a "pre-view" button of what you purchased I would of made some changes. There were examples but I had to keep going back and forth from one screen to another. Thank you for the quick shipment!
