Choosing the Text for Your Custom Heirloom: some tips, revisited
One of the questions I am most often asked is "What do you think I should I have stamped on my custom piece?" My answer is always a very honest one. The most special thing about having a Custom Ring Bearer Bowl™ or other custom piece made just for you is just that- it is made just for you. Sure, I have stamped many wonderful words on pieces for other brides and other clients. Some of them have become favorites, some even added to our permanent collection. But what makes a custom piece wonderful is the meaning behind the words you choose - not someone else's clever idea, no matter how cute. Perhaps your text is a few lines from a love note you have saved. A snippet of your wedding vows. A nickname, or an inside joke. When selecting your custom text, dig deep. Think with your heart. The most beautiful, most memorable, and most cherished words come from you and from those you love. I look forward to making a beautiful custom piece for you soon. What will your custom text be?
