My name is Stephen kuklin and recently, you fulfilled an order for me that I must compliment you and your company on. I happened to be scanning your website and came upon portraits of dogs. It got me to thinking. I love my dog beyond words. He is more than just a family member. He is one of the things that makes my family complete. He is getting up in years and is in poor health. I know he will not be here forever. I have lots of pictures of him but they are on my computer. I never thought about a portrait but when I started considering the pros and cons, it seemed like a no brainer. To have his picture over my mantle always looking down is where I always want him to be.
I decided to go ahead and get his portrait made by your company. First we discussed my situation via e-mail. You made some very helpful suggestions. I found the picture that most stuck out in my mind as being Kota, and sent it into you. We talked about me and my relationship with Kota so you could better make the artist understand what Kota was truly like. By doing this I believe the artist truly came to know Kota as an individual. You kept me updated very often to let me know what the progress was. Good communications lead to good results. Finally you sent me a digital photo of the preliminary results. There were a few things I though needed changing and we discussed them at length so the artist knew exactly what my wishes were.
After about a week, you sent me a photo of the final product in a frame so I could see what it would look like completed. It was magnificent and looked just like the Kota I want to always remember. I was so happy with the end result. You then had it packed with great care, and last night I received your work. It was truly awe inspiring and beyond what I had even hoped for. This is not only a tribute to my beloved Kota, but it is something that for as long as I live, will have a very special meaning. Your company is absolutely outstanding and the way you treat your customers is more like the way you would treat family. I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for me.
