'My brother got married in June and we decided to buy him a tree (they just moved into a brand new house) as I thought it would be a really nice long lasting gift.

'I have just received my keepstake in the post and wanted to tell you how thrilled I am with it. I ordered the item late on Wednesday afternoon, and was extremely impressed when it turned up on my doormat in this morning's post. I had been looking for something to complete a 60th birthday present for my father, and the keepstake certainly does. It looks beautiful, and the wording on it will make him chuckle!

As a new business, I am sure you are aware of the importance of customer satisfaction and word of mouth - rest assured I will certainly pass on your details to my friends and colleagues'.

Diane, Southampton.

'Thank you very much for your email. I look forward to receiving the Keepstake and will be happy to mail you with my feedback on its receipt. I have to admit to being a little intrigued now that you've said it is a new business. I am wondering if you have set up a franchise or whether the business is yours alone? I don't know if you will be interested in the reason why I chose the product? I have planted a container tree in memory of my Dad and scattered some of his ashes in the planting. I really wanted some sort of plague for the container and found your product through carrying out a 'google' search. I felt that it fits my needs perfectly and I'm pretty sure that there must be many, many people out there for whom this would be a perfect product. Thanks again and best wishes.'

Maggie, Nottingham

'Our order arrived safely yesterday and we are very pleased with the four Stakes. Thank you very much indeed. Your service was extremely efficient and exactly what we wanted and we will certainly recommend you to any friend who wants to do something similar.'

Anon

'Thank you very much for my garden plaque it meens so much to me. My mum died last year and I planted a tree in her memory but I couldnt find a plaque that was suitable until I saw your website. The plaque was exactly what I was looking for. I will be putting it by her tree on March the 1st and I hope it will be there for a long time. Thank you.'

Emma, Gloucestershire

'Many thanks for my keepstake which arrived today Thurs.I am so pleased with itas it is better than I had imagined it would be. Wish you well in your business.'

Mary, Essex

'Just received my order and am very pleased with both the item and the service. Would not hesitate to recommend you.'

Christine, Cheshire

'Just to say a big thank you for the plaque which arrived this morning. The family is thrilled with it, I'm surprised to learn that your business is quite new - your work and website is very professional! We will of course recommend you to our friends and family as the plaque will no doubt generate much interest amongst them. I was also surprised by how fast you managed to get the plaque to me! I expected to have to wait at least a couple of weeks but it arrived in just 5 days which was quite amazing! I'd also like to add that the plaque is great value for money and doesn't look in any way inferior to the very much more expensive versions we considered before deciding on buying a KeepStake. We ordered the plaque to mark a commemorative tree in a large meadow but wanted a much less simpler and less fussy type of plaque than the traditional type on the market. Your plaques are ideally suited to this purpose, unlike any other rival product we looked at and, as such, we are sure your new business will prove to be a great success. I am of course more than happy to recommend your KeepStakes to other potential customers as I am confident they will not be disappointed. Incidentally, we planted our KeepStake this weekend together with a few flowering mini-daffodils and they look great together. The stake was very easy to insert and the plaque itself stands solid in the ground (despite it being a terribly windy day). Thanks again from a highly satisfied customer!'

Alison, North Yorkshire

'I am very impressed with the quality of the item and service.Particularly the quick and personal response to my queries - very important when bereavement is involved.I will not hesitate to recommend you should the occasion arise.'

'I Just wanted to send a small e-mail of thanks for our keepstake we recently ordered with you. I was so surprised to see it arrive in the post yesterday morning, after only ordering it Tuesday night!! It's a great idea to remember special people (or in our case special pets!). I will be recommending you.'

Kayleigh, Somerset

'Just a note to say thank you so much for my KeepStake that I received yesterday, it's really nice and a fitting memorial for our much loved dog Belle that we sadly lost earlier this month. I bought it to put with a couple of rose trees I planted in our garden and I'm pleased to say it looks very nice and is so much nicer that I imagined it would be. I wish you all the very best with your business, I shall certainly recommend you to my friends and relatives in the future.'

Mrs B M, Northants

'This is just to say thank you for your prompt attention in making a plaque for my little cat Barney who sadly had to be put to sleep last Thursday aged 15, due to cancer, he is SO missed right now.

'My Auntie was absolutely thrilled with her Keepstake, she said she had never heard of or seen anything like this before. She has told me that before she plants it she will be showing it to all her friends. By the way the inscription I chose was perfect - she cried for ages and the angel at the top of the stake finished it off perfectly. Thank you so much for a very unusual gift idea'.

Tracy,Pembroke

'My Keepstake arrived this morning and I am absolutely thrilled with it - it is exactly what I wanted. I planted a rose garden on Monday in memory of my Dad and the Keepstake looks absolutely perfect. I am delighted with it and also the very prompt service you have given.

'I have just received my plaque and I am very pleased with it. I love it and it is a fitting tribute to my late Mother who would have been very happy with the plaque.
