I wanted to take a moment to thank you both for the rapid shipping and delivery of my order, but also for the high quality product.... then symbols pen I purchased for my boss was exquisite and the craftsmanship was very impressive.
When I presented the pen to my boss this morning - his eyes lit up like a little boy, and no sooner than he was able to say thank you to me, he was dashing around the office showing the pen off to his lodge brothers who also work at our company.
Thank you again for the wonderful product and quick shipping! ”
