I wanted to give my guests something that will last forever and not end up in their "collection" pile. I was a little nervous on how the frame would actually look and if the words would be clear. When they arrived, they were as beautiful and clear as pictured. We placed a photo of ourselves in each so as not to give our guests an empty frame and the completed look exceeded my expectations! My only wish was that the frames came with a box, that would have been the "cherry on the cake". I ended up ordering mini gift bags with tissue paper to complete the look. I am very happy with my order, it truly is an AMAZING FRAME!
