I was extremely surprised by the unbelievable quality of this vase. I was expecting something that looked nice from a distance since personalization could not be that great given the price and turnaround time....I don't know how you do it...the printed names blend seamlessly into the finish of the vase. It is as if the printing was added before the vase was fired. I was able to add all of our 14 family members by combining both parents/grandparents names on one line since the character limit was so high. We considered having a candle made from other wedsites for a similar purpose but the names were printed on clear adhesive & stuck on the candle---so glad we found this vase instead. This is a keepsake long after the wedding. I can't think of a more beautiful way to honor our deceased & very loved family members. I HIGHLY recommend this vase not just for your wedding but as a way to honor family.
