The package was very professionly wrapped! The product was slate and it was wrapped in the bubble wrap! The sign is perfect.....no chips in the slate! Our concern was the leather string to hang our sign might not last in the outside weather. We decided to use 2 screws to hang the heavy slate. It looks great!
I got this for my parents for their wedding anniversary and they loved it. Their living room is done in light houses and sailboats so it went very well with their them. I would recommend the item for sure.
