Letterfest were extremely accommodating in creating a bespoke gift for my husband for Father’s Day. Camille was very understanding and helpful, responding quickly to emails and ensuring the picture was perfect before being posted. The picture was securely packaged and delivery was prompt. The final product was beautiful and my husband was amazed at the likeness to the original image. A lovely, professional service I would definitely use again and recommend to others!
I received excellent customer service, from the initial phone call, to the quick delivery time. This was a Christmas Present and my Dad loved the finished product. I will definately order from you again. Thank you again !
