    Signature Medallions

    Just thought I'd like to share my excitement at receiving my first order of signature medallions from Tom Hempleman (Wildwoodhill Laser Graphics). I found them through this forum but I couldn't find the original thread -- sorry.

    I had my own logo engraved onto the basswood with my name and am absolutely delighted with the result. No offence to Tom, but they are far better than I ever imagined and the photos on his website do not do justice to the quality Tom produces.

    I was the first person to order from Tom outside the US, just beating Duncan by a whisker apparently. He even sent them on trust without payment -- what a guy -- including the invoice with the package for payment by PayPal.

    Having seen the quality, I am now putting together my second order.

    If anyone else here in the UK has come across these but hesitated ordering from across "the pond" -- get on with it. You won't be disappointed.

    No connection with Tom. Just a very, very satisfied customer who is old enough to appreciate dealing with a true gentleman.

    Always good to hear positive endorsements like that, Malcolm. Of course now we'll be expecting to see some of your new medallions in "action shots" soon.

    Thanks for the reference Malcom. I found Tom's web site and I am quite impressed by his medallions. There is a good chance that I will order a few.
    Cheers, Frank

    I NEED to order some. Because some of my models go into museums and reside in corporate headquarters I really need to "sign" my work. The models I do are really art works in a sense...I am foolish for not signing my work to be honest with you.

    Anyone got a link...

    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"

    It doesn't seem to display very well with Firefox (you have to scroll down to see the first text on the page...otherwise you think you got a blank page). It displays better with Internet Explorer.

    Malcolm got you covered, though.
