Would it be possible to add the company logo ? 
1 Answer

There is a five piece minimum order for logos.  If you are ordering five or more, you would just place your order but under engraving put ***LOGO***.  Then reply to your order confirmation email with your logo.  We'd put together a proof for your approval or editing within 2 business days.  If you don't need at least five, there is no minimum order for text engraving.

Could I leave the original engraving on the item but inscribe the person's full name on the other side of it?
1 Answer
Yes, the text on the front comes pre-printed on this desk sculpture. The personalization you enter will be laser engraved on a silver plate on the back.

Can you personalize it on more than one side? How long does it take to personalize and order?
1 Answer
Its normally personalized by adding an engrving plate to the back. The text on the front comes with the product. If you'd like to add a plate to either side, or both sides, we could do that for you. If you'd like that, just let us know in the comments section of our checkout page, after you add this to the shopping cart.

Dear Sir/Madam,I really liked this statue. however, I do have a few questions:1. Do you ship to Bulgaria? - if the answer is yes, what time does it take usually?2. If I want to put some custom engraving - where it will appear? Is it going on the bottom (which means that the statue will have to be picked-up?) or it can goes to any side (as shown on this picture?) - or both options are available? 3. How is the engraving priced? is it per character or? 4. When is shipped - is it possible not to quote any price? (It'll be a present). Sincerely,Dani
1 Answer
We can ship to Bulgaria, just choose USPS International Air Mail as your shipping method. Shipping usually takes 2 to 3 weeks for international orders. The engraving is mounted on a plate on the back side of the base of the statue. It does not go on the bottom. the engraving is free of charge, and you can engrave 3 lines of up to 25 characters per line. We do have to quote a price upon shipment but we make it as low as possible for customs.

Hi, i have a question: i want to buy exactly the one showing on the picture with the same text. Do i have to put that text in engraving lines, or it's included? Also, how much is the shipping to Russia and how long does it take? Thanks.
1 Answer
The text shown comes with this item. You can just add it to your shopping cart and checkout. The shipping to Russia would be $11.95.

This was a great desk sculpture. The man and post was movable which was a pleasant surprise. I thought it would be a bit heavier but overall a good value for the product. Also, personalization was well done.
  • Creative
  • Opportunity for personalization
  • Could be heavier.

Elegant desk piece!
By Virginia

Love this item! It arrived quickly and is beautiful. It conveys the message to a very wonderful colleague for his 15th work anniversary. I will order from this company again. I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 only because during the order process I had the 'free' shipping chosen, and then went onto fill out the pay information etc. I hit the submit button at the end of ordering and the shipping went to priority shipping (additional $20). I didn't realize I needed to hit apply button under the shipping options before I went on to the other ordering information all on the same page. I will know for next time!
  • Elegant, well made, conveys the message nicely, received on time, personalized available for free
  • Didn't realize you had to hit apply after choosing the shipping option you wanted as it is all on the same page with the remainder of the order.. not a typical place to hit apply.

Nice product but overpriced for value
By Nick i.

Really like the product but for the price it was. Not a good value. I wanted to use as incentives for people to think out of the box or non conventionally. Almost to the extent of giving out 10 to 20 per month. Could see this but for a prestige award(just a few occasionally) it is not worthy of the price

Expensive for the size
By Jody

I bought this to say thank you to a client of mine. The item is disappointing in terms of its size (pretty small) compared to its cost. My client kept trying to move the man in the figure but he doesn't move.
Merchant Response
We're so sorry you're disappointed in the size, we do list the dimensions but we understand it can be difficult to picture. The man should absolutely move if you tap on the other end of the bar he sits on. We'll be happy to ship you a replacement, even a different item if you'd prefer free of charge. Just email us at and let us know if you'd like a replacement of the same item or a different item.
