    The whole process from design, to ordering, to completion and shipping went very well. I would definitely recommend them to others or use them again myself. On top of it all the signs look great!

    We reached out to John with a particular vision. He responded quickly with honest, useful feedback. We wanted a sign that had a carving of our actual cabin on the front and a special message on the back. We sent him pictures and he sent us his ideas and a quote. We received the sign and it looks amazing! We couldn't be more pleased. John is a true artist!

    The Artful Carver created a lovely sign for our cousin, who has cerebral palsy and lives in a group home. It was lovely with purple flowers painted on it and it said "Connie's Purple Garden" to hang on the fence over her flower bed full of purple flowers, her favourite colour. Thanks.

    I was looking for a last minute gift for my wife and decided that a new cottage sign to replace our existing one that was now difficult to make out. I reached out to John and a design was created. He turned the finished sign around in record time without affecting the high quality craftsmanship. I now have a beautiful new sign to present my wife in time for Christmas. Thank you John!

    John is a masterful carver who created a stunning sign for my mom and stepdads wedding! Wow! Incredible craftsmanship and an incredible finished piece, one that the happy couple will cherish for their years together ahead. Thank you also goes to John for his prompt communication and flexibility to adapt our original mock-up with a revision. We made one modification that John artfully brought to life as a unique and personalized wedding gift. It was seamless communication from where I live in BC to his shop in ON, and he was able to accomodate expedited delivery within the GTA as an option to meet our hopeful event deadline. If you are looking for excellent craftsmanship and a personalized gift that the receiver will cherish forever, you can trust John to offer you exactly that!

    Thank you so much!

    I just received my sign and it looks great! John did a fantastic job! It was an unusual as Iwas kind of teasing my sister about her smoking and how the garage had become her office because she isn't allowed to smoke in the home.
